Manage the SAP Hana Connector
The Composer SAP Hana connector lets you access the data stored within your in-memory database using the Composer client. The Composer SAP Hana connector supports SAP Hana version 2.0.
Before you can establish a connection from Composer to SAP Hana storage, a connector server needs to be installed and configured. See Manage Connectors and Connector Servers for general instructions and Connect to SAP Hana for details specific to the SAP Hana connector.
After the connector has been set up, you can create data source configurations that specify the necessary connection information and identify the data you want to use. See Manage Data Source Configurations for more information. After data sources are configured, they can be used to create dashboards and visuals from your data. See Create Dashboards.
SAP Hana connector support for specific Composer features is shown in the following table.
Key: Y - Supported; N - Not Supported; N/A - not applicable
The SAP Hana connector requires a JDBC driver to be configured before you can connect to your data source. You can download the driver from the vendor's site. For information and steps, see Add a JDBC Driver.
When setting up a connection to SAP Hana, you need to provide the following:
- The name of the connection
- The JDBC URL. The format for the JDBC URL must be as follows:
- The username and password, if applicable.
