Consuming SAP HANA Cloud from the Kyma environment


With the December 2022 release of the SAP HANA Cloud Tools, you can now develop Kyma applications that work with HANA HDI containers and schemas. This blog post explains one essential part of what you need to do.

The overall process is as follows:

1. From the multi-environment edition of SAP HANA Cloud Central or using the btp CLI, provision a HANA database instance in a subaccount.

2. From the multi-environment edition of SAP HANA Cloud Central, use the “instance mapping” feature to map the instance into a Kyma namespace (or Cloud Foundry space), either in the same subaccount or in a different subaccount.

HANA Docker Install with NFS mounts – (Fully Automated)

With the new evolving modern methodologies around many SAP applications and database technology, i am trying to contribute with some idea that can be helpful or spark a new idea for others.

The thought is …

What if we can create HANA docker container with database filesystems mounted to the container using NFS filesystems from an external source?

This will allow us to create HANA containers instantly with existing data and no dependency on container build process, we can even use native Linux Container images directly without modifying. This will reduce the HANA container build time, keep a persistent layer for data, less image space required for the container, reuse/redeploy the container instantly, etc..

Accessing SAP HANA Cloud, data lake Files from Python


In this blog, we will learn how to use the SAP HANA data lake REST API to Create/Write, Access/Read and list your files through a python script. The REST API reference documentation link can be found at (SAP HANA Cloud, Data Lake Files REST API), and it may be used to access the file containers of the SAP HANA data lake. The Python demonstrations that follow, however, use some of the most typical endpoints. We will learn how to use a Python http client to fire a http request and then parse a response status and get response body data. In this post on python http module, we will try attempting making connections and making http requests like GET, POST, PUT, DELETE. Let’s get started.

NSE Implementation Experience


NSE is a fully functional warm data store on HANA database, which we can leverage to move less frequently accessed data without loading fully into memory. 

This is a very good feature, where we can avoid increasing server capacity and thereby control costs on hardware.

For example, one of our customers has a 2TB production instance on Azure and they have an average memory consumption of 1.7-1.8 TB. To increase hardware capacity, keeping similar CPU size, we need to take a larger VM of around 4TB, which is oversized according to the current growth rate of the database; so customers will end up paying more for a larger VM, even though it’s not being fully utilized.

Starting line

Are you ready to modernize your information technology platform because it is a set of outdated legacy systems that no longer supports your business adequately? Today’s technology provides innovative solutions that bring more value, streamline processes, improve business agility, accelerate efficiency, and improve the bottom line. They can help scale, grow, and transform your business into an industry-leading entity. Many organizations are migrating from SAP ECC to S/4HANA or implementing SAP for the first time with S/4HANA. The key to success is getting started the right way.

MTA project Integration with Git in Business Application Studio: HANA XSA

Today I am going to discuss about the MTA project Integration with GitHub as a source control in SAP Business Application Studio: HANA XSA. earlier I discussed integration with  Web IDE which is slide difference.

SAP Business Application studio support  Personal access tokens instead of passwords and to access GitHub repo  in a SAP Business Application Studio we need create an access token on GitHub

Before perform the steps, I want everybody know the flow and keep the diagram so that you have a clear concept on this migration –

Add New Fields To “S/4HANA Manage Purchase Requisition- Professional Fiori App” With CDS Extension

This topic demonstrates how you can extend the original CDS view with a view extension to provide some additional fields.


Our customer asked us to add some fields that are in the “EBAN” table but not in the Manage Purchase Requisition Professional Fiori application(F2229).

Spend Reporting with S/4HANA Embedded Analytics

Spend reporting is an important AP requirement that helps companies better understand and control their expenses. Traditionally, companies that run SAP approach Spend reporting with BW solutions.
When it comes to Spend reporting BW gives little to no advantage compared to S/4HANA Embedded Analytics due to rigid extraction process and need of complex transformations and native modeling. It makes total sense to bring Spend reporting back to S/4HANA where it belongs.

S/4HANA Embedded Analytics Spend data can be sliced and diced in Analysis for Office or visualized using SAP Analytics Cloud or Power BI.

Replicate artifacts data from an HDI Container in SAP Business Application Studio to SAP HANA On_Premise

The SAP HANA Deployment Infrastructure (HDI) is a service layer of the SAP HANA database and helps to create runtime database objects from design-time artifacts.

It uses containers to store design-time artifacts and the corresponding deployed run-time objects.

Inside the database, the HDI container is represented as a schema but is owned by a technical user and isolated from other database objects. Only local object access inside the container is allowed and to access objects outside the container explicit grants is required from the object owner.

Consume CDS View inside CDS Table Function by using AMDP

We are familiar with getting data from a table using AMDP procedure or AMDP table function. But, how about CDS View, I tried a case and got the following error

SAP HANA Exam, SAP HANA Exam Prep, SAP HANA Tutorial and Materials, SAP HANA Skills, SAP HANA Jobs, SAP HANA Guides

Basically, AMDP will get data from database, and it will get all client (assume your system have several clients), that is a reason why you catch this error when working with CDS view.

Use multi-tenant capabilities of SAP Job Scheduling Service to schedule tenant-specific jobs to pull data from the S/4HANA system

In this blog, we will see how to schedule periodic jobs for each of the subscribing tenants to pull data periodically from the backend system and ensure data isolation for each tenant.

SAP Job Scheduling Service

SAP Job Scheduling service allows you to define and manage jobs that run once or on a recurring schedule. Use this runtime-agnostic service to schedule action endpoints in your application or long-running processes using Cloud Foundry tasks. Use REST APIs to schedule jobs, including long-running jobs asynchronously, and create multiple schedule formats for simple and complex recurring schedules. Manage jobs and tasks and manage schedules with a web-based user interface.
