Configuring the SAPCP Cloud Connector

How to configure the SAP Cloud Platform (SAPCP) cloud connector to work with SAP Analytics Cloud.

Prerequisites

  1. The cloud connector is installed. For more information, see Installing the SAPCP Cloud Connector.
  2. The SAP Analytics Cloud agent is installed. For more information, see Installing SAP Analytics Cloud Agent.
    Note
    The SAP Analytics Cloud agent is required for all import data connections except SAP BPC NW, SAP BPC for BW/4HANA, OData Services, and SAP S/4HANA.
  3. (For SAP BW and SAP ERP connections): The SAP JCO is installed. For more information, see Installing the SAP Java Connector (JCo).

Context

To enable import data connections, you must add mappings to your SAP Analytics Cloud system, and all remote systems, to the cloud connector administration page. For additional setup information, see Configure access control for HTTP.

Procedure

  1. Launch the SAPCP cloud connector administration page and log on: https://<HCC HOST>:8443.
    Note

    Replace <HCC HOST> with the host name of the system where the cloud connector is installed.

  2. In the navigation panel, select Connector, then select Add Subaccount.

    The Add Subaccount dialog will appear.

  3. Add your account information.

    Add the following information:
    • Region Host: Select your region host from the list.
    • Subaccount Name: Add your SAP HANA account name. For example, dd00bb33.
    • (Optional) Display Name: Add a name for the account.
    • Subaccount User: Add your subaccount (S-User) username.
      Note
      To find your S-User username, in SAP Analytics Cloud go to Start of the navigation path (Main Menu) Next navigation step  System Next navigation step  Administration Next navigation step Datasource ConfigurationEnd of the navigation path.
    • Password: Add your S-User password.
    • Location ID: Leave empty to use the default location, or add the ID of the location you set in SAP Analytics Cloud.
      Note

      If you enter Default as the location ID, this will not connect to the default location set in SAP Analytics Cloud. We recommend that you leave the Location ID empty if you don't plan to set up multiple cloud connectors in your system landscape.

      Each cloud connector instance must use a different location, and an error will appear if you choose a location that is already been used. You can click the Edit icon to change the location.

    • (Optional) Description: Add a description for the cloud connector.
  4. Select Save.
  5. In the navigation panel, under <DisplayName>, select Cloud to On-Premise.

    <DisplayName> is be the name of the cloud connector tenant.

  6. Under the Access Control tab, select (Add).

    The Edit System Mapping dialog will appear.

  7. Add your system mapping information.

    Add the following information:
    • Back-end Type: Select Other SAP System.
    • Protocol: Select HTTP.
      Note
      You can choose HTTPS if SSL is configured on the Apache Tomcat instance where SAP Analytics Cloud is deployed.
    • (Optional) Virtual Host: The default virtual host and port are the internal host and port. You can rename the host and port so that the internal host name and port are not exposed. The virtual host name and port will be used when configuring the SAP Analytics Cloud agent.
    • (Optional) Virtual Port: The port number used by the virtual host.
    • Internal Host: If you are connecting to an SAP BPC NW or SAP S/4HANA On-Premise system, add the host name of your SAP BPC NW system. For all other connections, add the internal host name of the Tomcat server where the SAP Analytics Cloud agent is running.
    • Internal Port: The port number used by the internal host.
      Note
      The default Tomcat port is 8080 and the default HTTPS port is 8443.
    • SAProuter: Leave empty.
    • Principal Type: Select None.
    • SNC Partner Name: Leave empty.
    • (Optional) Description: Add a system description.
  8. Select Check availability of internal host, and then select Save.
  9. Select the system you added to the Mapping Virtual To Internal System list.
  10. In the Resources Accessible area, select (Add).

    The Add Resource dialog will appear.

  11. Add resource information.

    Add the following information:
    • URL Path: Set to /sap/bpc to create a connection to a SAP BPC NW system, or /C4A_AGENT/ to create a connection to SAP BPC MS, SAP ERP, SAP BW or SAP UNX.
    • Enabled: Ensure this is selected.
    • Access Policy: Select Path and all sub-paths.
    • (Optional) Description: Add a description for the resource.
  12. Select Save.

    The state next to the virtual host should appear green.

  13. Repeat steps 6-12, for every system you want to access through the cloud connector.

Next Steps

For all connections except SAP BPC NW, SAP BPC for BW/4HANA, SAP S/4HANA, and OData Services, you must configure the SAP Analytics Cloud agent. For more information, see Configuring SAP Analytics Cloud Agent.
