In this lesson, you will learn how to stop your SAP HANA Cloud database instance that you previously created in your SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) trial account.

Business Case

As a database administrator, you need to stop your company's SAP HANA Cloud database deployed in the SAP Business Technology Platform.

Note
The steps to stop your trial SAP HANA Cloud database instance also apply to a SAP HANA Cloud database instance that was created in an SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) enterprise account.

Your SAP HANA Cloud database instance is part of the SAP Business Technology Platform, to find your SAP HANA Cloud database instance you need to perform the following steps.

  1. Logon to the SAP Business Technology Platform trial account and navigate to the SAP HANA Cloud database area by following one of these paths:
    • For an BTP trial account: <your BTP home page><your trial global account><your subaccount><your development space>from the navigation pane select SAP HANA Cloud buttonselect the button Manage HANA Cloud
    • For an BTP enterprise account: <your BTP home page>your enterprise global account>select the Subaccounts link<your subaccount><your development space>from the navigation pane select SAP HANA Cloud buttonselect the button Manage HANA Cloud
  2. A sign-in tab opens, select your e-mail address to continue the sign in process.
  3. In the new tab you are now logged on to the SAP HANA Cloud Central application.

You are now in the SAP HANA Cloud Central application where you get an overview of all the SAP HANA Cloud database instances that you have deployed in this development space.

The following steps show you how to stop your SAP HANA Cloud database instance:

  1. In the SAP HANA Cloud Central application, locate your SAP HANA Cloud database instance that you want to stop and press the °°° (More) button.
  2. From the drop-down menu, select the Stop option.

Your SAP HANA Cloud database instance is now being stopped. The whole shutdown process takes around 30 seconds.

To Stop an SAP HANA Cloud database using the Cloud Foundry CLI execute the following steps:

  1. Open a Linux Terminal or Windows PowerShell.
  2. log-in to the SAP BTP using the command cf login -o <organisation> -s <space> -a <API endpoint> and enter your credentials.
  3. To create a new database service, execute the command:
    Code snippet
    cf update-service <service name> -c
    '{"data":
        {
          "serviceStopped": true
        }
     }'
    Copy code

    Example:

    Code snippet
    cf update-service HC200-Trial-Database -c '{ "data": {"serviceStopped": true}}'
    Copy code

    The above command will stop the started database.
