  2. Click "Check Configuration" and notice the error


Network proxy is blocking a request to <Hostname> on port 8080.


NOTE: Please make sure the Cloud connector & Cloud Agent have been configured correctly as mentioned in Help Guide without any minor spelling errors such as C4A_AGENT and not C4_AGENT as these could also lead to such errors. 

If SAP Cloud Connector and Apache Tomcat hosting SAP Analytics Cloud Agent are on the same machine then use SAP Cloud Connector entries:

  • Internal Host: localhost:8080
  • Virtual Host: <Hostname>:8080

If SAP Cloud Connector and Apache Tomcat hosting SAP Analytics Cloud Agent are on different machines:

  • Ask your network proxy administrator to allow a request to <Hostname> on port 8080
  • Update the proxy settings on the SAP Cloud Connector machine to not use the proxy for requests starting with <Hostname>
