  • You want to connect to your HANA on-premise and you can use a reverse proxy. You want to use a SAML Identity Provider and the recommended proxy is Apache. 
  • You want to connect to your BI Universe via BOE Live Data Connect and via reverse proxy.
  • PATH option is not available on your SAP Analytics Cloud system to set up Live Data Connections via Reverse Proxy.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud
  • Apache server 2.4.23 or higher


SAP Analytics Cloud does not support PATH connectivity option via reverse proxy anymore.


As of 2018.22 release, creation of Live connections via Direct will be the recommended choice going forward.
