SAP Cloud Connector in Docker

Easily setup SAPCC in docker.

See my YouTube video for additional details: Installing SAP Cloud Connector (SAPCC) into Docker and connecting it to SAP Cloud Platform (SAPCP)

Check also my blog Installing SAP Cloud Connector into Docker and connecting it to SAP Cloud Platform. There you'll find links to the whole blog series.


The Dockerfile is based on


  1. Install Docker

    Windows: Make sure you are running on Windows 10! For installing Docker you will need admin rights on your machine. Furthermore, you might have to run your Terminal/CLI as "Administrator" in case your current user is not an admin user (i.e. GitBash, PowerShell).

  2. Install Git

    On Windows I suggest to install Git Bash as well (you'll be asked during the installation process).

    Hint: Installing git is actually not really needed. Alternatively, you could also copy/download this Dockerfile to yor machine manually.

  3. Clone this repo

    git clone
    cd sap-cloud-connector-docker
  4. Build the Docker image

    • Without Proxy

      docker build -t sapcc: .
    • Behind a Proxy

      docker build --build-arg http_proxy=http://proxy.mycompany.corp:1234 --build-arg https_proxy=http://proxy.mycompany.corp:1234 -t sapcc: .

      Hint: In a proxy environment your docker build command (see above) will fail in case you don't set the proxy as mentioned above or in case you use wrong proxy settings. Also consider that you might have to set the proxy manually for some software installed in the container, i.e. for the SAPCC you can set it manually for each SAPCP connection.

  5. Create a container running as a deamon

    • Use this if you want to map the default SAP ports as they come on localhost (preferred)

      docker run -p 8443:8443 -h mysapcc --name sapcc -d sapcc:
    • Use this one if "random" ports on localhost are fine for you

      docker run -P -h mysapcc --name sapcc -d sapcc:
  6. Starting/Stopping the container

    • Starting: docker start sapcc
    • Stopping: docker stop sapcc
  7. Post Installation Steps

    Logon to https://localhost:8443 with the default credentials:

    • User: Administrator
    • Password: manage

    You will be asked to change your password.

    Hint: It might take a few seconds after you can access https://localhost:8443. This is because the SAP Cloud Connector needs some time to start (even though the Docker Container has immediately started).

  8. Proxy Settings

    A proxy can be set manually for each SAPCP connection after logging on to the SAPCC using a browser. Make sure to use the correct proxy settings (incl. credentials if required), otherwise your SAPCC might not be able to connect to your SAPCC account.

Docker Configuration and Commands

Creating a Network called saptrial

docker network create -d bridge saptrial

Connect Container sapcc to Network saptrial + make sapcc available via alias mysapcc

docker network connect --alias mysapcc saptrial sapcc

Putting an existing NW ABAP Container onto the same Network (with different aliases)

docker network connect --alias vhcalnplci saptrial nwabap751
docker network connect --alias vhcalnplci.dummy.nodomain saptrial nwabap751

Removing Containers from Docker Networks

docker network disconnect saptrial nwabap751
docker network disconnect saptrial sapcc

Deleting/Removing a Docker Network

docker network rm saptrial

Creating a Docker Image from Docker Containers (i.e. for "backup")

# Suggestion: stop the container you want to backup before continuing
docker stop sapcc

# create an image "sapccbackup" from the container "sapcc"
docker commit sapcc sapccbackup:1
# later you can create a new container from the new image "sapccimage"
# Hint: if the ports etc are already used by other containers you must use different ports (or i.e. deleting the other containers first)
docker run -p 8443:8443 -h mysapcc --name sapccNewContainer -d sapccbackup:1

SAP Cloud Platform Destinations

In case you followed my YouTube Video Installing SAP NW ABAP 7.51 SP02 into Docker or followed the steps described here then the following SAPCP Destinations can be used:

Destinations for NW ABAP Trial OData Services (powered by SAP Gateway)
