Managing the SAP Hana Connector

The Zoomdata SAP Hana connector lets you access the data stored within your in-memory database for visualization and exploration using the Zoomdata client. The Zoomdata SAP Hana connector supports SAP Hana version 2.0.

Before you can establish a connection from Zoomdata to SAP Hana storage, a connector server needs to be installed and configured. See Managing Connectors and Connector Servers for general instructions and Connecting to SAP Hana for details specific to the SAP Hana connector.

After the connector has been set up, you can create data source configurations that specify the necessary connection information and identify the data you want to use. See Manage Data Source Configurations for more information. After data sources are configured, they can be used to create dashboards and charts from your data. See Creating Dashboards and Creating Charts.
