How to copy the repository system connections

Hello community,

after several releases of Cloud Application Studio my coworkers and myself are wondering if you can copy the repository system connection data from one CAS version to another. The best guess I had was to copy the contents of the specific release folder in %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\SAP\SAPCloudApplicationsStudio\<oldVersion> or %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\SAPCloudApplicationsStudio\<oldVersion> to the latest. Unfortunately this procedure had no effect.

Is there a way to copy those connection data? It's a little annoying if you have a project where the time for development and support overlaps some releases.

Best regards,

Daniel Obst

Hello Emily,

we found the Answer to the question by thorough investigation of the registry entries for cloud application studio.

When you open the registry: Go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER->SOFTWARE->SAP->SAPCloudApplicationStudio-><TheVersionyouwantthekeyfrom>->DialogPage->SAP.CopernicusOptionPage

In this Entry, look for the SystemConnections attribute. The string contains all the connections to the tenants. This can be copied then to the latest version, when the registry entry is located at the exact same spot in the next version.

Kind Regards,

Daniel Obst

Hi Daniel,

It has been suggested that you can use 'RegEdit' for this task.

Thank you,
