Hi Team,

When trying to connect my SCP trial account to SAP Analytics Cloud, I am not able to specify the connection type.

Attaching the screen for reference

Also, I see a mew option 'path prefix'. What is the significance of this path prefix?

as it says on the page you reference: << "Path connection type" ... when ... "you are NOT connecting to Cloud Platform" >> .

Basically, this is when connecting to a remote (on premise) HANA system, and you are accessing via a Reverse Proxy. So not applicable to you.

The config page you want is this one:

the connection dialog should look like the attached screenshot.

If it doesn't show like that, then i'm afraid it confirms my opinion that this feature isn't enabled on a trial of Analytics Cloud.

Good luck!

regards, H

Can you confirm if you are using a Trial for Analytics Cloud? i think these are restricted to Excel and CSV and Google Drive sheets

Otherwise if you have an admin who has additional rights? Not sure, sorry

Hi Henry,

Yes. I am on Trial Analytics Cloud Account.

I am now able to add the SAP Cloud Platform as a connection Type.

However, I see an option "Path Prefix". What does this refer too? What input should we provide here?

I refer the guide " " .. Here I don't see any references to the term path prefix.

Can you help me understand what this refers to?

Attaching the screen with the inputs I provided. With these inputs, I get an error saying "Failed to connect to the system"
