HTML5 Application InfrastructureEnhancement
  • HTML5 application versions can now be created and activated on a single screen in the cockpit.
  • A required destination from the neo-app.json file can now be mapped to an existing account destination. For more information, see Accessing REST Services.
SAP HANAEnhancement

SAP HANA revision 92 (SPS 09) is now available.

  • In a production environment or planned Go-live in less than 6 weeks, we recommend that you stay on the current SAP HANA SPS 08 until the next SAP HANA Datacenter Service Point is reached.
  • In a non-production environment or planned initial system setup, you can update to the new SPS 09 via request to SAP HANA Cloud Platform operators.
DocumentationEnhancement
  • The home page is improved.
  • Breadcrumbs are included for better navigation.
  • The documentation structure is simplified and optimized by categories which reflect the programming models offered by the platform - Java, SAP HANA, HTML5, and SAPUI5.
SAP Development Tools for Eclipse (Download Site)Enhancement
  • The download site is now served via Akamai CDN to optimize latency and throughput in all geographical regions.
  • There is better throughput when downloading cloud tools, HCI, or AppBuilder with the speed of your local ISP.
  • The installation time of the Eclipse tools is significantly reduced.
Connectivity ServiceEnhancement

Applications called via HTTP destinations of authentication type ApplicationToApplicationSSO now support principal propagation.

Cloud ConnectorBugfix

SAP HANA Cloud connector 2.5.1 is released. Fixes:

  • The Connect/Disconnect operations in Account Dashboard now behave correctly.
  • After restarting the Cloud connector, both the principal propagation and the trust configuration work properly for existing sessions.
  • After restarting the Cloud connector or in case of failover, the Service Channels function is started automatically. 
  • If there is a SAP JVM installed via RPM on Linux OS, the Cloud connector will prefer this SAP JVM to other available JVMs .
  • Previously, if an account was deleted in the Master instance, the deletion was propagated to the Shadow one, but the account configuration remained in the Shadow. This wrong behavior is now fixed.

Release Notes for SAP HANA Cloud Platform - 12 February 2015
FunctionType of ChangeDescription
Identity ServiceNew

You can now set SuccessFactors as the role provider for extension applications. This allows you to manage the roles of such applications only in the SuccessFactors system. For more information, see Changing the Default Role Provider.

CockpitEnhancement

Only the main links (Settings, Help, and Feedback) remain in the cockpit header. All the other links were moved to the new footer.

SAPUI5Enhancement

SAPUI5 distribution 1.26.5 for Java and HTML5 applications (including runtime 1.26.4 & documentation) has been released.

Connectivity ServiceEnhancement
  • Тhe OAuth tokens of HTTP destinations with authentication type OAuth2SAMLBearerAssertion are now auto-renovated. When a token is about to expire, a new token is created shortly before the expiration of the old one.
  • To allow parallel usage of HTTP client instances, HTTP clients created by HTTP destinations will now use ThreadSafeClientConnManager.
SecurityBugfix

By default, the FORM and SAML2 login methods used to fall back to user name and password authentication (HTTP basic authentication) in case of failure of the trusted SAML identity provider. This default fallback is now removed. To preserve the behavior, in Authentication Configuration create for your application a custom login method, in which you select the User name and password option. The change requires application restart. For more information, see Configuring Authentication for Your Application.

 

 


Release Notes for SAP HANA Cloud Platform - 29 January 2015
FunctionType of ChangeDescription
CockpitNew

Breadcrumbs show the full object hierarchy in the pattern:

Data Center > Account > application > process

Connectivity ServiceEnhancement

The interface com.sap.core.connectivity.api.configuration.ConnectivityConfiguration is extended with a new clearCache() method. It allows each application to clear its local cache to ensure that the next configuration will be taken from a central storage. The method also clears the configuration cache used by HTTP destinations. For more information, see Connectivity Javadoc.

SAPUI5Enhancement

SAPUI5 distribution 1.26.3 for Java and HTML5 applications (including runtime 1.26.3 & documentation) has been released.

SAP HANAEnhancement

SAP HANA revision 91 (SPS 09) is now available.

  • In a production environment or planned Go-live in less than 6 weeks, we recommend that you stay on the current SAP HANA SPS 08 until the next SAP HANA Datacenter Service Point is reached.
  • In a non-production environment or planned initial system setup, you can update to the new SPS 09 via request to SAP HANA Cloud Platform operators.
HTML5 ApplicationsEnhancement

Virtual roles are now available for HTML5 applications.

  • AccountAdministrator – account members with Administrator role.
  • AccountDeveloper – account members with Developer or Administrator role.
  • Everyone – all authenticated users of the configured identity provider.

 

You can map virtual roles to HTML5 application permissions. AccountAdministrator and AccountDeveloper require SAP IDP to be configured as identity provider. In case a custom IDP is configured, you can manually create these roles in the corresponding account.

 

By default, every permission required to access a protected resource of an application is granted to members of the AccountDeveloper role. As long as no other role is assigned to the permission, only account members with the Developer or Administrator role have access to the protected resource. This is also true for the default permission NonActiveApplicationPermission, which is required to access a non-active version of an HTML5 application.

 

 


Release Notes for SAP HANA Cloud Platform - 15 January 2015
FunctionType of ChangeDescription
CockpitEnhancement
  • The Subscribed Java Applications table now has columns State and Start Time, so you can see the run state and start time of your subscribed Java applications.
  • Every row in the log viewer has a View button that opens the respective log line in text-only format.
Console ClientEnhancement

The rolling-update command is now available for productive use. For more information, see rolling-update.

New version of SAP JVM Tools is released. For more information about the new major features, see What is New in SAP JVM Tools 2.2.

Connectivity ServiceEnhancement
  • JCoDestination.ping() times out after <rfc.client_connect_timeout>  seconds. It also throws a JCoException with error group JCO_ERROR_TIMEOUT if the system does not respond in that time.
  • When using a destination with pooling, you can configure the destination to check the validity of a connection before using the connection for a function call. This way you can avoid zombie connections that may lead to error-prone situations.
  • Traffic traces are added, which allows analyzing transferred data amounts.
