SAP HANA Cloud Database Instance Stop

Lesson Overview

In this lesson, you'll learn how to stop your SAP HANA Cloud database instance that you previously created in your SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) 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 SAP HANA Cloud database instance also apply to an SAP HANA Cloud database instance that was created in an SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) enterprise account.

Stop an SAP HANA Cloud Database Instance

From the SAP BTP cockpit, navigate to your SAP BTP subaccount (1), in the navigation panel select Instances and subscriptions (2), and select the SAP HANA Cloud (3) to open the SAP HANA Cloud Central.

The SAP HANA Cloud Central (1) opens in a new browser tab. This makes it easier to navigate between the SAP HANA Cloud Central and SAP BTP Cockpit.

To open the Actions Menu for the selected cloud database, select the °°° (2) button. From the Actions menu, select the Stop (3) option to shutdown the SAP HANA Cloud database instance.

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

Stop a Database Instance Using Cloud Foundry CLI

It's also possible to stop an SAP HANA Cloud database instance using the Cloud Foundry CLI. Before you can stop a database instance, you need to install the Cloud Foundry CLI and log on to the SAP BTP as previously explained.

Stop a database using cf cli

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
        }
     }'
    Expand

    Example:

    Code snippet
    cf update-service HC200-Demo-Database -c '{ "data": {"serviceStopped": true}}'
    Expand

    The above command will stop the started database.
