Hi Team,

We are planning to use ALM to transport all types of objects in Native SAP HANA system. As part of this process, we are trying to understand how we can create design time objects for users in HANA something like .hdbuser so that they can be moved to next system inside Delivery Unit.

Your advise will be highly appreciated. System version we are looking at is SPS12.

There is no design time artifact available you can define and transport users. Users can only be managed with the available user management tools in SAP HANA or with 3rd-party tools. The default way for the future is also to use an IdP instead of managing all users in HANA additionally (especially for Application Only users).

Hi Florian,

Thank you very much for the reply.

Do we have any in-built user management tools in HANA? or the only way is to create users manually in all HANA systems.

By default just the known tools to create the users manually.
