    Hi Rajesh,

    An account has no filesystem to gain access to.

    A filesystem will become available in very specific cases:

    1) To an application once you have deployed it onto SCP. However, this filesystem is not to be directly accessed to maintain data or configure the application. Instead there are other options to perform such tasks on an application. On the other hand, if you are talking about CF applications, there are ways to interact with the filesystem directly via SSH tunnel. Either way, the filesystem is very limited and should not be used to persist any information. Remember that cloud applications should be resilient and thus the filesystem will be rebuilt every time it is needed based on the deployment artifacts.

    2) To a Virtual Machine. In such case there will be a way to access the system via SSH and here is how you can do this.

    3) To a Service. Services have their own way of dealing with access to their own filesystem. Generally speaking, services will not allow you to issue OS commands directly to the filesystem. Instead, they will offer some API or other means to interact with it. Document Service is such a case.

    Hope this answers your question.

    Best regards,
    Ivan

    • Rajesh,

      No, you will only get access to the file system in those specific cases. SAP CP is a Platform as a Service; there is a lot of abstraction before reaching the infrastructure.
