As I promised at the end of the article Install SAP Cloud Connector on the SAP server “Developer Edition” I will tell you how you can configure SAP Cloud Connector with an account of SAP Business Technology Platform Trial(formerly known as SAP Cloud Platform Trial). In this way you can connect your SAP Business Application Studio with your SAP On Premise servers.
In this example, I have relied on a SAP Cloud Connector (SCC) installed on a server ABAP Developer Edition, but the principle is the same for any SCC, even in the developer test version.
Accessing the SAP Cloud Connector
To access the SAP Cloud Connector you must open its URL in your browser; for an SCC installed on an ABAP Developer Edition server – as is my case – it would be https: //vhcalnplci.dummy.nodomain: 8443 /for a developer edition, the URL would be https: // localhost: 8443 /
Access with your credentials, or the default in case of a new installation would be:
User name:Administrator (respect the capital letters)
When you enter the first time with the predefined access data, you will be asked to change the password. Once changed, you will be able to directly load the page where you must enter the details of the “subaccount” of the SAP Business Technology Platform. I assume that previously, before starting with the configuration of the SCC, you have created a Trial account.
Defining the SAP Cloud Platform subaccount data
Then I will tell you, based on the main screen of the SAP Business Technology Platform “subaccount”, which data you should put in each section.
As you can see in the image, the correspondence between the mandatory parameters of the subaccount in the Cloud Connector is as follows:
Region:In this field, using the search aid, you must select the one that corresponds to your SAP Cloud Platform (or SAP Business Technology Platform) account. In my case, being a Trial account, it is cf.eu10.hana.ondemand.com that belongs to the Europe (Frankfurt) region.
Subaccount: Here you must put the ID of the subaccount.
Subaccount User:User with whom you identify in SAP Business Technology Platform
Password:Password of the previous user.
Once this information is completed, if everything went well, you should get something similar to the following:
Adding an On-Premise Server to the SAP Cloud Connector
Once the SCC is connected with the SAP Business Technology Platform account, you must add your SAP ABAP Developer Edition server, or any other that you use; so that it is accessible from the SAP WebIDE or SAP Business Application Studio development environment and that you can test and deploy your Fiori applications.
To do this, you must go to the Cloud to On-Premise entry in the left menu and once loaded, click on the + sign
When creating the new mapping with the internal server, a window will be shown requesting the type of server, here you must select SAP Gateway:
In the protocol select HTTPS:
Protocol through which we will connect to the Gateway server
Define the internal server and the port: Here you must enter the data of the server that you want to access from the Cloud. If you are configuring the ABAP Development Edition server, installed following the steps in the articles“How to prepare your development environment”, your data should match what I expose below:
ABAP Developer Edition internal server data
In the next step, you must configure the name with which you will expose your server to the Cloud platform. SAP recommends using a different server name than the internal one (although it does not mean that the same cannot be used). I have used the server name that I show below, although you can define any other.
Data of the external server to which we will connect from SAP Cloud Platform
In the main server type, you must leave it as it appears, with the option “None” selected.
You must also define that the Virtual Host is used, in the HOST field of the request headers.
In the last step, I recommend that you mark the option “Check Internal Host” so that you can check if the system is accessible from the Cloud Connector.
In the end, once the whole process is finished, you should already have the server connected. You can check it by seeing the status of the column “Check Result”
Summary of On-Premise Server Connected from SAP Cloud Connector
In the following article I will tell you how to connect from your SAP Business Technology Platform with the SAP ABAP Developer Edition server configured in the SAP Cloud Platform.
