dodevops/hanaexpress — version 3.0.0 Sep 4th 2019

SAP HANA Express docker hosting module

Build Status

This module manages multiple SAP HANA Express instances using Docker as described on the official SAP HANA Tutorials page.

Please note, that this module is in no means connected to SAP in any kind. Please don't ask them for support.



Initialize the hanaexpress class with your login credentials for the Docker store:

class {
        store_username => 'my_user',
        store_password => 'my_password'

After that, initialize docker instances using the database type:

hanaexpress::database {
        version => '',
        password => 'TestHanaExpress1',
        systemdb_port => 39017,
        tenantdb_port => 39041

This will configure and startup a HANA express which will be available by ports 39017 for the systemdb and 39041 for the tenantdb. The SYSTEM user will have the given password.


This module directly supports hiera like this:

  - hanaexpress

hanaexpress::store_username: my_user
hanaexpress::store_password: my_password

        version: ""
        password: 'TestHanaExpress1'
        systemdb_port: 39017
        tenantdb_port: 39041

Integration tests

Because HANA express requires a lot of resources, the integration tests can not be run locally or automatically. We have, however, set up a kitchen integration test, that runs on Azure. Check out the configuration docs if you want to start it. Additionally, you need a Docker store login and then run the tests like this:

AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID=your-azure-subscription-id AZURE_LOCATION=azure-location STORE_USERNAME=Docker-store-username STORE_PASSWORD=Docker-store-password bundle exec kitchen test all
