In this blog I have tried to capture my understanding of the process to refresh the Cloud Connector Certificate

Cloud Connector can be defined as a connecting link between the Cloud applications or applications installed on cloud and the applications installed On-Premise

Cloud connector is a preferred way of connecting such applications as it requires exposing only that On-Premise application to which the cloud application is to be connected, instead of the entire On-Premise landscape

However, Cloud Connector requires a certificate to be installed and refreshed, below are the steps explaining how the certificate can be refreshed…

For you to be able to refresh the Cloud Connector Certificate , you should be a Sub-Account Owner.

You can check if you or who from you Organization is a Sub-Account Owner by logging on to SAC and navigating to below path,

On Left Menu, System > Administration > Data Source Configuration > SAP BTP Core Account


On same page, at Top-Right, an Edit button is provided, if you want to change the Sub-Account Owner

Cloud Connector Certificate, needs to be refreshed from the same machine on which it is installed. To do that log on to the machine where the cloud connector is installed,

Enter the https://localhost:8443 , default port for Cloud Connector is 8443. Please check the one for yours if you face any issue in opening the Cloud Connector UI.

  • Login to Cloud Connector using Administrator access


 Cloud Connector Administration page will be presented in front of you once you login

  • On top, you will see a blue button  for Sub-Account, click on it
  • A separate window will open-up presenting you will the list of Systems connected to the Cloud Connector.
  • Each individual system is selectable.
  • Click on the System for which you want to refresh the Certificate

Once you select, an Overview page for the Selected Sub-Account will open in the background

Under Sub-Account Overview section, along with other details, you will see a title for Sub-Account Certificate, which displays the  Validity date of the certification

On Right, you will see details of the Sub-Account Owner, if you are not the owner, you will have to make yourself the Owner first, only then you will be able to make the change.

The certificate will be refreshed, and new validity details of the certificate will be presented in the Sub-Account Overview page.
