      Diagram that shows the Azure Monitor for SAP solutions resource creation page in the Azure portal, showing all required form fields.

    3. Optionally, select Enable secure communication and choose the certificate type from the dropdown menu.

    4. For IP address, enter the IP address or hostname of the server that runs the SAP HANA instance that you want to monitor. If you're using a hostname, make sure there's connectivity within the virtual network.

    5. For Database tenant, enter the HANA database that you want to connect to. We recommend that you use SYSTEMDB because tenant databases don't have all monitoring views.

    6. For Instance number, enter the instance number of the database (0-99). The SQL port is automatically determined based on the instance number.

    7. For Database username, enter the dedicated SAP HANA database user. This user needs the MONITORING or BACKUP CATALOG READ role assignment. For nonproduction SAP HANA instances, use SYSTEM instead.

    8. For Database password, enter the password for the database username. You can either enter the password directly or use a secret inside Azure Key Vault.

  6. Save your changes to the Azure Monitor for SAP solutions resource.


Azure Monitor for SAP solutions supports HANA 2.0 SP6 and later versions. Legacy HANA 1.0 is not supported.
