Hi,

We are evaluating the Data Loading/Integration capability with Hana Cloud Platform. I've signed up the cloud trial, but I can't enable the SAP HANA Cloud Integration in SAP HANA Cloud Platform Cockpit. Is it possible to run ETL inside of the cloud, or I need download the Agent? If latter, how and where I can download the Agent?

Thanks in advance,

Kevin

Hello Kevin,

I am quite not sure if HCI Data integration is enabled on trial HCP account. As far as i remember it was provided with factory landscape with a developer account.

https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/3612603 - This link talks about but there might a more updated page for this.

With respect to the Agent (it is called Data Services (DS) Agent) and it is a must. As you HCI -DS is a cloud based application it need to interact with the installed locally on your system or on any system. You will be able to download the executable from SAP Software download center.

https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/softwarecenter . It is ~130 mb file . You define the mappings for the ETL in the cloud portal for HCI which then connects to the source via the agent and transfer the data to the destination.

Hope this helps.

Thanks and Regards,

Veera

Thanks Veera for the reply!

I'm not able to access the SAP Software Download Center (https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/softwarecenter). It asks for an S-User ID. I'm currently not an SAP customer, I just want to evaluate the tool. How can I download the agent?

Thanks,
Kevin
