Authentication and SSO for the SAP HANA Service – by the SAP HANA Academy


For SAP HANA as a Service, username/password, SAML and JWT are available as authentication mechanisms, the last two can be used for integration into single sign-on environments.

In the video tutorial below, we show you how to configure the available authentication mechanisms for the Cloud Foundry environment. For Neo, currently on SAP HANA 1.0 SPS 12, this works slightly different in the user interface –due mainly to a different SAP HANA cockpit release– but in concept, it is the same idea.


In this video tutorial, we shows how to configure User Authentication using SAP HANA cockpit for the SAP Cloud Platform, SAP HANA Service in the Cloud Foundry environment.

There are videos in the Academy about how to configure a password policy, so we did not dwell on the topic in this tutorial, as it is exactly the same thing. For more information, see
