Credentials for logon to Application Lifecycle Manager do not work

I want to log into the Application Lifecycle Manager usnig the following URL:


In my case (HANA Express Edition 2.0 SPS2, server-only) it is:

Next, a wild logon screen appears:

Now I enter my <sys>adm credentials (User: hxeadm) and press "Logon". However, I don't get logged in but get the error "Login failed : wrong credentials.".

Did I enter the wrong credentials or what are other possible causes?

Note: This only happens for the Application Lifecycle Manager. Logging into the Platform Lifecycle Manager with these credentials works fine.

    The operation system user hxedadm cannot be used. The HANA LM uses the HANA user store respectively a configure IdP. In your case with HXE I don't think that you have configured an IdP, so you have to use a HANA user (like e.g. the SYSTEM user or better a dedicated user for LM). Of course the user needs the required privileges to use the HANA LM.

    • Thanks for the clarification. However, logging in through the url in my original post with user="SYSTEM" and pw="<SYSTEMDB's SYSTEM pw>" also results in "Wrong credentials" (I automatically get redirected to "", btw.)
