The Password Problem with Eclipse in conjunction with HCP

I guess, this is a quite trivial question.

However, I didn't find it in this forum.

In Eclipse, I tried to define a new server for a HCP account (a real one).

Like in this example.

As internal employee, I don't use the login with user and pasword, because i am autenticated automatically.

So I never knew the PW.

And how do I obtain the password?

I wonder why I didn't find this question in SCN yet.

    Hi Manuel,

    I suppose the screenshot does not show your real username, because you wrote that you are an internal SAP user. For D-, I-, and C-Users the password for the HCP account should be the same as your Global password.

    Best regards,

    I don't understand the Problem? normaly you are registered as an developer right? So you need some kinde of user and you can access the cockpit via SSO and you don't know the your password?

    So either upload via cockpit or ask one of the Admins to deliver you an encrypted maven password which you could use to deploy via maven.

    SAP HANA Cloud Platform Java Web Maven Plugin -

    see section encrypting passwords.

    Other solution i don't kno but i doubt that there is any in eclipse. Maybe there is a way with neo commandline? Still the above process is only for deploying, starting etc. if you want to connect to the application to debug it it wont be of any use..
