On the bottom of the HXE tutorials page you can find different "how to connect" tutorials. For instance connecting to HXE with Eclipse using the HANA Tools.

And there's also one for the tenant db (which you will need for predictive or ML, for example) for that specific scenario with HANA Studio:

Or using an alternative SQL client:

THANK YOU for your answers , I just want to know if what you described above is also valid if we used HXE on GCP "Google Cloud Platform". I have downloaded eclipse and installed SAP HANA Studio but i don't know how to be able to connect hxe on GCP to Hana studio.


Yes, that is valid also for HXE on GCP. In the tutorial you executed there is an optional step 4 (mapping your hostname in the hosts file). If you do that you can work with the hostname you will define in the hosts file. Otherwise you need to deal with the external IP you determined from the GCP cockpit for your HXE instance.


Thank you for your help , I'm now able to connect gcp with hana studio successfully.
