Cannot login to /sap/hana/xs/admin/


I was configuring SAML for my account but it fails. Now I cannot even login to or

SAML login page shows up in error. So I wanted to revert the changes that I made. But now I cannot do it so I am locked out.

Any idea if there is a workaround?

    Hi Paolo,

    you can still connect to your HANA instance using HANA Studio (please follow Connecting to SAP HANA Databases via the Eclipse IDE in the HCP documentation).

    Look for table "_SYS_XS"."RUNTIME_CONFIGURATION". It contains the authentication configuration.

    If you find a configuration on the package path "sap", "sap.hana", "sap.hana.xs" remove this.

    If you have changed the configuration for the top-level package (empty package ID), update the CONFIGURATION with the default: '{"authentication": [{"method": "Form"},{"method": "Basic"}]}'

    This should reset the authentication method to use basic authentication for everything which is not overwritten on a more specific package path.

    Best regards,

    I would like to mention, that for this is necessary:

    - to create a dp tunnel in neo client console: neo-db-tunnel (JDK8 is necessary for this).
