HCI PI Tenant Set UP-Part1

I am working on HCI- PI project in which am building custom iflows. When created a scenario and deployed it on HCI tenant, I have faced a number of issues with respect to HCI tenant setup. I am writing these blogs so that it would help integration developer or basis admin to understand HCI tenant initial setup. I know there are few similar blogs based on trial version. My effort is to try and consolidate all the required information at one place so that it would be easy for developers to follow and use. In this blog, we shall understand what are usages of URL's which is received from SAP when HCI tenant is purchased.

Step1: You will receive an email from SAP about the account details using which you can access HCI tenant. The email consists of 3 URL's as mentioned below.

1st will be a WEB UI URL

2nd will be an Eclipse URL

3rd will a runtime URL

HCI-PI URL and Usage This is the URL to access Cockpit which is provided by SAP when an HCI cloud account is requested.

Web UI URL (Access via web browser): This is to access HCI-PI instance to do integration development.

Management URL (Access via Eclipse HCI plugin): This is the URL which is configured in Eclipse tool to perform integration development.

Runtime URL (Webservice URL to be configured in backend systems): This is the runtime URL which is used to configure backend system with SAP HCI-PI

Step2: You need to create an account and provide proper authorization so that you can develop and test your integration scenarios. You can follow below link and steps to accomplish initial account setup.

Step3: You need to provide particular roles for integration developer. Please follow steps mentioned below.

1.Login to cockpit using URL mentioned below using SNC user credentials.

2. Navigate to security tab on the left panel and click Authorization as shown in the screenshot below.

3.In User, search tab input the SNC user and click show assignments.


4.Click on Assign tab and the following screen will pop up and assign roles as mentioned in the screenshot below. One thing to note is account and application type for the specific user role.

5. After assigning the roles your user should look as in the screenshot below. Note: I have assigned some additional roles as I was also involved in admin work. In case you are just responsible for integration development then you can get Integration developer role and ESBMessaging. Send roles which will allow you to develop iflows in HCI tenant.

Note: You need to have ESBMessaging.send and Integration developer role to develop iflowso.

In my next blog will explain how to setup eclipse.

Hope this helps.
