CAP to use HANA DB in NEO as persistence Layer

Hi,

Quite straight question, right?

I want to build a CAP Application but our SCP global account only has one HANA instance quota (a big one we don't really need, by the way). And it's in NEO due to previous developments and PoCs that I can't drop and create a new one in CF. So, I would like to find out if there is any way to make it work as it is right now.

It will not be a productive scenario, it's a PoC at this time. If the customer likes it, then we would get more funds and I would be able to plan a more accurate architecture.

Thanks in advance for any help,

David R.

    So the answer is 'No, it is not possible for CAP to use HANA DB in Neo" ?.

    Can someone from SAP confirm please?

    Hi David Rodriguez Diez,

    IF your HANA in Neo allows connections from outside, you should be able to achieve your scenario via CF's user provided service mechanism (cf. https://docs.cloudfoundry.org/devguide/services/user-provided.html) or by providing the necessary information directly in your .cdsrc.json's requires.db.credentials section (but you probably don't want this info in your version control! ;)).

    Best,
    Sebastian

    Hi again,

    Your approach was based in a very initial premise: the database should be accessible through the sql ports from internet, let's say. But I a little research made me realice that it's not possible to expose that port to internet for a SAP HANA database AS A SERVICE in a NEO Account. Sadly, I will have to either commision a new database instance in CF or run the PoC in Trial.

    BR,
