SAP Cloud Platform Cockpit

SAP HANA Cloud App

To create a new SAP HANA Cloud instance using the SAP Cloud Platform cockpit, navigate to your Cloud Foundry space and select SAP HANA Cloud from the menu and then Create Database (no changes).

This will launch the Create Instance dialog in the SAP HANA Cloud app

The 4-step dialog is similar but not identical (see below), after which we remain in the app. From here we can manage the SAP HANA Cloud and SAP HANA Cloud, data lake instance.

Create Instance Dialog

Note the following changes

  • Create instance now includes the Cloud Foundry org and space as selection in Step 1
  • Advanced Settings, now Step 3, includes
    • Allowed collections
    • Additional capabilities
  • Associated SAP HANA Cloud instance is specifically mentioned for data lake

Manage HANA Cloud

The SAP HANA Cloud app lists all instances. From the header using Add you can create new instances.

From the Action column for the instance (elipsis …), you can for both the database and the data lake:

  • Start / Stop
  • Copy the instance ID (UUID string) or SQL endpoint (URL with UUID and TLS port)
  • Delete the instance
  • Edit the instance settings (see below)

Specific to SAP HANA Cloud are

  • Upgrade (when available)
  • Add a data lake instance, when no instance is created yet
  • Launch SAP HANA cockpit or SAP HANA database explorer
  • Instance sharing (select the instance name) add provide Cloud Foundry org and space

Edit Instance

Editable properties are the description and memory allocation (database) or compute/storage (data lake). For SAP HANA Cloud, we can also change the allowlist, additional capabilities.

Self-service for memory scale-up and SCC are new.

SAP Cloud Platform Cockpit

From the SAP Cloud Platform cockpit section for SAP HANA Cloud, we can now only access the SAP HANA Cloud app page using either the Monitor landscape link on the cards or the Manage HANA Cloud button on the header.

From the cards we can also access the SAP HANA cockpit service for the instance (Administer) or the SAP HANA database explorer (Execute SQL and explore objects).
