You can find a list of all topics covered in our overview post.
In the video embedded in this blog post, I will show what needs to be done in SAP Landscape Management Cloud to onboard your SAP systems when using the SAP Landscape Management Cloud, execution engine as your landscape agent.
Onboarding of SAP Systems in SAP Landscape Management Cloud
The following video explains the steps required to onboard your SAP systems in SAP Landscape Management Cloud once the automatic detection of your SAP systems and virtual machines was successful:
- Create groups
- Assign SAP systems to groups
- Establish roles with suitable permissions to restrict, who can assign patterns to which system or who gets read-only permissions
If you are using SAP Landscape Management, enterprise edition as your landscape agent, the created pools and SAP systems are replicated to SAP Landscape Management Cloud following the initial onboarding process. This means that you can start assigning patterns and snooze your systems straightaway. Additionally, you might want to create roles with appropriate permissions to restrict who can assign patterns to which system or who gets read-only permissions.
In the configuration menu of SAP Landscape Management Cloud, you can perform administrative tasks such as altering the configured public cloud provider credentials, perform the management of your groups and roles and assign the SAP systems to their respective groups when using the SAP Landscape Management Cloud, execution engine.
The minimum activities, which are required to start managing your systems with SAP Landscape Management Cloud are to create groups and assign the SAP systems to them.
