The S/4HANA Cloud SDK pipeline uses the S/4HANA Cloud SDK continuous delivery server for building, checking, and deploying extension applications. Projects based on the S/4HANA Cloud SDK archetype will automatically use this pipeline.

SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK Pipeline

Visualisation of SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK Pipeline


The SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK helps to develop S/4HANA extension application on the SAP Cloud Platform. Continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) is an important aspect of cloud application development. This repository contains a Jenkins pipeline as code designed for the requirements and structure of application written with this SDK. It contains the steps for building, testing and deploying applications to the SAP Cloud Platform.


To use the pipeline you need a Jenkins server which has the pipeline library as shared library configured. The best way to achieve this is to use the SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK Cx Server.

For instantiating the SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK Cx Server, you need to provide a suitable host with a Linux operating system and Docker installed. Please also ensure that the user with whom you start the Cx Server belongs to the docker group.

Your project source files need to be available on a git or GitHub server, which is accessible from the Cx Server host.

The lifecycle of the Cx Server is maintained by a script called cx-server. It can be found in the same named folder on the root of each SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK project archetype. Together with the server.cfg file, this is all you need for starting your instance of the SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK Cx Server.

To create a new project using the SDK execute the following command:

 mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeArtifactId=scp-cf-tomee -DarchetypeVersion=RELEASE

In the new project, there is a folder called cx-server. This folder needs to be copied to the future host on which the Cx Server is intended to run.

On the host machine execute the following command in the folder cx-server. This will start the Jenkins server.

 ./cx-server start

In Jenkins, click on "New Item" and create a new "Multi-branch Pipeline" for your repository.

Download and Installation

In order to use the pipeline just load the pipeline within your Jenkinsfile that is placed in the root of your project repository. Create a file called Jenkinsfile and add the following example code:

#!/usr/bin/env groovy 

node {
    sh "git clone --depth 1 pipelines"
    load './pipelines/s4sdk-pipeline.groovy'

After you commit your changes and the Jenkins server starts to build the project it will automatically use the pipeline.


To improve SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK Pipeline, we do collect non-personal telemetry data.
