Symptom

This note covers topics on how to use the SAP Business One Cloud Deployment Services Partner Tools.

Solution

1.      Resetting Password

When the user has forgotten the password, you can use the Password Reset function to change it without knowing the existing password.  

Procedure

  1. Log on to your landscape.
  2. Choose the Common Tools folder > SAP Partner Tools icon > Password reset tile.
    You can see a list of all the users in your landscape, grouped by Operators and Customers.
    Note:
    You will only be able to change the user password for your own cloud operator user. You will not be able to change the user password for other cloud operators.
  3. Scroll down to the user whose password you want to change, and choose the Reset button.
  4. In the Reset password window, enter a new password in the textbox. To hide or display the password, select or unselect the Hide Password checkbox.
  5. Click the Reset button.
    The password is immediately reset and is available for use.
    Recommendation:
    When you supply the new password to the user in e-mail format or otherwise, we recommend that you require the user to change that password.

2.      Starting and Stopping Landscape

This topic covers how to use the Partner Tools to start and stop Service Units in your landscape.

Procedure

  1. Log on to your landscape.
  2. Choose the Common Tools folder > SAP Partner Tools icon. Enter your credentials; you are presented with a cockpit of partner tools. Select the Stop and start Landscape tile.
    On the left-hand side, you can see a list of all service units along with their statuses and purposes.
    Note:
    You are able to start and stop each individual service unit within your landscape rather than starting and stopping the entire landscape. However, you do not have an option to start or stop a productive service unit.
  3. Choose the testing service unit you want to modify. You will see the Stop Service unit button or Start Service unit button on the lower right.
  4. To stop the service unit, click the Stop Service unit button.
    The status of the service unit will turn to Stopping, and one by one all its components will move from Running to Stopping and to Stopped. Once all components are stopped, the overall status of the service unit will be referred to as Stopped.
  5. To start the service unit, click the Start Service unit button.
    The status of the components in this service unit will move from Stopped to Starting, to Pending, and to Running status.
  6. To return to the previous page, click the Back button.

This topic covers how to upload an exported schema from your local machine to the landscape. This is especially useful if you have a client, for example, an on-premise customer, and you are going to bring them to cloud deployment services. You have exported their schema from your local machine and you now want to import it into your landscape.

Procedure

  1. Log on to your landscape.

    The name of the exported schema appears in the Upload schema dialog box.
  5. Click the Upload button and wait for the upload to complete.
    Caution:
    You cannot import a schema with the same name as the one that already exists. If you have already done that, you need to delete it and start over.
