Pipeline Library for the SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK


This pipeline library is used by SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK Pipeline. It defines the common steps (functions) in a Jenkins pipeline to build, test and deploy applications to the SAP Cloud Platform.


To use the pipeline library you must have a git project which uses a pipeline, such as the SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK Pipeline.

Download and Installation

To use the library in a pipeline you have to configure this library as a globally shared library.

To avoid the manual steps described in that documentation you can 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 "Multibranch Pipeline" for your repository.

Now you can use the pipeline in a Jenkinsfile by adding the following line on top of the file.

@Library(['s4sdk-pipeline-library']) _

If you decide for SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK Pipeline, this is already done for you.
