  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.

Procedure

    The SAP JCo is available on the SAP Software Downloads CenterInformation published on SAP site SAP Software Download Center. Search for Java connector and download the 64-bit Java connector for the appropriate operating system. Using a 64-bit Java connector requires 64-bit Apache Tomcat.
    Note
    You must ensure that the version of the SAP JCo you download is compatible with your on-premise SAP system.
  2. Copy files into one of the following locations:
    • On a Windows server, put the sapjco3.jar and sapjco3.dll files in the lib folder of Apache Tomcat.
    • On a Linux server, put the sapjco3.jar and libsapjco3.so in the lib folder of Apache Tomcat.
    Note

    It is recommended that the SAPCP cloud connector, SAP Analytics Cloud agent, and the SAP JCo are installed together on a dedicated server, and not a personal computer. This helps to ensure that multiple users can use an import data connection without experiencing slowness or downtime.
