Introduction


With Jan 2021 release (expected to reach customers by month end ), we released a feature in CPI to complement the metered Connections displayed in the account cockpit.  Now, CPI customers can download a report that contains additional details on how the metered connections count got derived.

Note that this feature is available only on Neo environment with this release.This will be available on CF in the coming months.

In this blog, I would walk you through the steps required to get additional details on the CPI connections.
NOTE that the APIs offered are not meant to be used in Integration Suite.
 

Usage Analytics


A connection is an association between two unique end points via the SAP Cloud Integration. A unique end point is a combination of the IP address and the port.

Subaccount Admin can view the usage of the Cloud Integration service by navigating to Subaccount->Usage Analytics as shown below:

NOTE: The number shown here is the total connections including the 3 free connections.
