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 Cloud Platform (SAPCP) Cloud Connector configured.

Note
The deployment kit has limited configuration options. If you would like all available options, perform a full manual install 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.

When you run the deployment kit, a Tomcat server, the SAPCP 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.

Setting Custom User Parameters
The file parameters-example.ini is included in the deployment kit .ZIP file. To overwrite the preset user settings used by the deployment kit, rename this file to parameters.ini and provide the following custom parameters:
  • tomcatuser: Provide a user name for your Tomcat user.
  • tomcatpassword: Provide a password for your Tomcat user.
  • sccpassword: Provide a SAPCP Cloud Connector password.
