This documentation refers to the latest release of the Gekkobrain SCI Extractor version 2.8
In order to get started with either a ‘Ready for SAP HANA’, you need to have an active Gekkobrain account and have access to this account as an Account Administrator. If you don’t have an account yet, then you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact your Gekkobrain Partner. Then an account will be created, and you will receive the login details in an e-mail.
Before you can start doing an assessment you need to setup the first project in the Gekkobrain Cloud. A project in the Cloud is always linked to a System-ID (which should match your SAP System-ID) for which you will do the HANA Readiness inspections. You can define multiple systems and projects in Gekkobrain for the same account.
Go to the Menu ‘System List’ in the Menu - and you will see the newly created System-ID.
The system you have just created will get an API-key. You will need this API key when you send inspections to your Gekkobrain account.
After you have created a system, the next step is to create a new “HANA Ready” project. You will need to link the project to the System ID, you have just created in the previous step.
You have now created a new HANAREADY project in Gekkobrain. Go to the Menu ‘Project List’ in the Menu, where you will see the newly created Project.
The final step you need to go through before you can send the first inspections to Gekkobrain is to get the Account ID. You will need this Account ID, when you start the extraction report in SAP. See FAQ
If your current SAP system is older than the listed requirements above, then you can export the code and execute the checks in a reference system(>= version 7.40 SP8) see note 2011106 or read the guide Help_executing_remote_static_checks
If you do not have a system of the required version, you could go to CAL.SAP.COM and create an instance of “SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP and SAP BW 7.50 SP02 on ASE [Developer Edition]”. You will install the Gekkobrain program on this machine. Export your source code from the development system import on the reference system. Follow the instructions regarding Manual inspection
Log into your Gekkobrain account and go to the menu ‘Download Extractor’ to download the latest version of the SCI extractor. The system will download a zip file. In the file, you will find the components you need to get started. The Gekkobrain SCI Extractor only needs to be deployed into your DEV-System.
There are 2 different ways to upload the source code you need for Gekkobrain:
In this very first step, you need to decide how you plan to send inspection data to Gekkobrain. You can use either web services or file transfer to send your inspection data to the Gekkobrain Cloud. We recommend that you use web services for the integration, but if the network settings in your setup does not allow for HTTP/HTTPS call from your SAP System, then you can use file transfer instead. You can use the SAP Standard report RSWF_TEST_HTTP to check if it is possible to send data using web services.
Start the report and enter the URL: “http://hanalyzer.gekkobrainhosted.com/api/object” and press F8. If the report returns HTTP Response Code 200 you can use web services for the transfer of inspections. If not, you can do a manual file transfer.
Its possible to use SSL for all cloud communication - see the following guideline to set it up.
