Introduction


I just finished upgrading the HANA Cockpit to latest version to SAP HANA COCKPIT 2.8 and would like to  share some new and enhanced features and style of it.



 

The initial launch pad completely redesigned.



 

More segregated Groups



 

After upgrading the HANA Cockpit and the Manage cockpit had following popup for the first time login .



Click OK.



after saying yes , it did prompt me to log out and log back in then everything is fine.

 

New option added to change the appearance of the cockpit, currently there are less options to change the skill color etc.,



 



 

more user friendly configuration tab for adding , removing and modifying any configuration parameters.



 

now we can see recently access history .



 

Now the Manage Database has option showing related apps which you might be required to look into it while working on another app.



 

The view can be filtered by the options provided like Performance Management and security here.



 



 

now we can reorganize / rearrange the tiles dynamically.



 

With the recent update i like the user management part which made it so easy.



 

Finally the Localized Help for HANA Cockpit  this is cool.
