SAP Analytics Cloud Agent Simple Deployment Kit
The SAP Analytics Cloud Agent Simple Deployment Kit allows you to quickly get your import data connections working.
The SAP Analytics Cloud Agent Simple Deployment Kit is ideal if you do not already have a Tomcat Server deployment running, or an existing SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) Cloud Connector configured.
The SAP Analytics Cloud agent deployment kit prior to version 1.0.269 has the Apache Tomcat memory allocation set to 1GB out of the box. For better handling of large data volumes, ensure that Apache Tomcat has at least 4GB of memory. Refer to SAP Note 2732879 for information on how to increase Tomcat memory allocation.
The deployment kit has limited configuration options. If you would like all available options, perform a full manual installation of all required components. If you have already installed the deployment kit, and require more options, uninstall the kit before performing a full manual installation. For more information, see Import Data Connection Overview Diagram.
When you run the deployment kit, a Tomcat server, the Cloud Connector, and the SAP Analytics Cloud agent will be installed. Environment variables and folders for JDBC and File Server will also be created or configured. If your connection type requires the SAP Java Connector (JCo) or JDBC drivers, you must manually deploy them following the Post-Setup Guide included in the deployment folder. All components will be installed on the same machine.
The deployment kit is available at SAP Software Downloads. Go to Support Packages and Patches, and search for the CLOUD KIT. Follow the instructions in the README.txt included in the .zip and the Post-Setup Guide available in the deployment folder.
