Cloud Connector and SAP CAL (ABAP Trial 7.40 with BW)


I'm trying to get access to an oData-service that exists on my CAL-Instance.

I've managed to set up Cloud Connector and have it running together with the HCP.

When I create a virtual system, it cannot be found when I try to create a destination in HCP.

However, if I use the real domain (http://abapci.dummy.nodomain:5000) I can create a destination.

But, when using that destination, I always receive a "Forbidden" answer in the WEB IDE when trying to consume the oData metadata.

I Followed the "Getting started with SAP Netweaver Application Server  for ABAP...." and opened up the ports on the ABAP Server instance, but still no go.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

    OK, back to square one I guess...

    This is what I have done so far:

    Created a new instance of the ABAP AS 7.40 with BW on Hana DB SP08 DevEdt from SAP CAL.

    Updated Cloud Connector to

    In the Principal Propagation Tab I see following:

    How do I create the certificates needed using XCA?

    I'm a bit lost as to what is really needed here...

    This is how my setup looks like:


    AWS Instance running an NW AS ABAP Server and a Front End Server

    CC is installed on the same server running NW AS ABAP

    I have done all initial configurations, and I'm able to see the Cloud Connector in the Cloud Cockpit.

      I finally have an answer...

      Since Underscore "_" is not a valid character in an URL,  the same constraints applies to the Virtual Hostname and thus it's throwing all kinds of errors.

      Changed the "_" to a "." and it's working. YAY! 🤣

    Hi Magnus,

    can you check in audit log, whether the call is really reaching the Cloud Connector? If Cloud Connector is the one who denies the request, you will see an entry there.

    Best regards,

      I'm using a SAP Cloud Appliance Library instance of the "SAP NW AS ABAP & SAP BW 7.40 SP8 on HANA" Solution.

      Just as you wrote your lates post, I terminated the instance 🤪

      I will try to create a new one and see if the problem still exist after doing the initial configurations.

      Also, this time I will update the CC.
