In the upcoming weeks we will be posting new videos to the SAP HANA Academy to show new features and functionality introduced with SAP HANA Support Package Stack (SPS) 11.

What's New with SAP HANA SPS 11 - by the SAP HANA Academy

The topic of this blog is application lifecycle management.

What's New?

Integration with SAP HANA cockpit

Although the web version of the SAP HANA Application Lifecycle Management (HALM) was already available in the previous version of SAP HANA, it is now also integrated with the generic tool for administration using web technologies, SAP HANA cockpit. Using HANA cockpit as a single home for all management tasks simplifies administration.

As a result, you can now access HALM in a browser using

  • SAP HANA cockpit (available from tile catalog) = NEW
  • SAP HANA Web-based Development Workbench
  • Web application URL (http://<host>:80<instance_number>/sap/hana/xs/lm)
  • SAP HANA Studio internal/external browser access through context menu: Lifecycle Management > Application Lifecycle Management

Of course, the command line tool hdbalm is also still available.
