abapEnvironmentCreateSystem

Creates a SAP Cloud Platform ABAP Environment system (aka Steampunk system)

Description

This step creates a SAP Cloud Platform ABAP Environment system (aka Steampunk system) via the cloud foundry command line interface (cf CLI). This can be done by providing a service manifest as a configuration file (parameter serviceManifest) or by passing the configuration values directly via the other parameters of this step.

Usage

We recommend to define values of step parameters via config.yml file. In this case, calling the step is reduced to one simple line.
Calling the step can be done either via the Jenkins library step or on the command line.

Jenkins Pipeline

library('piper-lib-os')

abapEnvironmentCreateSystem script: this

Command Line

piper abapEnvironmentCreateSystem

Prerequisites

  • On SAP Cloud Platform, Cloud Foundry needs to be enabled on subaccount level. This can be done on the Subaccount Overview page. The subaccount is then mapped to a “Cloud Foundry Organization”, for which you must provide a suitable name during the creation. Have a look at the documentation for more details.
  • A (technical) user is required to access the SAP Cloud Platform via the cf CLI. The user needs to be a member of the global account and has to have the Space Developer role. The user and password need to be stored in the Jenkins Credentials Store.
  • Please make sure, that there are enough entitlements in the subaccount for the Service Plan, which you want to use for this step.

Example: Configuration in the config.yml

The recommended way to configure your pipeline is via the config.yml file. In this case, calling the step in the Jenkinsfile is reduced to one line:

abapEnvironmentCreateSystem script: this

The configuration values for the system can be passed through the config.yml file:

steps:
  abapEnvironmentCreateSystem:
    cfCredentialsId: 'cfCredentialsId'
    cfApiEndpoint: 'https://test.server.com'
    cfOrg: 'cfOrg'
    cfSpace: 'cfSpace'
    cfServiceInstance: 'H02_Q_system'
    cfService: 'abap'
    cfServicePlan: 'standard'
    abapSystemAdminEmail: 'user@example.com'
    abapSystemDescription: 'ABAP Environment Q System'
    abapSystemIsDevelopmentAllowed: true
    abapSystemID: 'H02'
    abapSystemSizeOfPersistence: 4
    abapSystemSizeOfRuntime: 1

Example: Configuration in the Jenkinsfile

The step, including all parameters, can also be called directly from the Jenkinsfile. In the following example, a configuration file is used.

abapEnvironmentCreateSystem (
  script: this,
  cfCredentialsId: 'cfCredentialsId',
  cfApiEndpoint: 'https://test.server.com',
  cfOrg: 'cfOrg',
  cfSpace: 'cfSpace',
  cfServiceManifest: 'manifest.yml'
)

The file manifest.yml would look like this:

---
create-services:
- name:   "H02_Q_system"
  broker: "abap"
  plan:   "standard"
  parameters: "{ \"admin_email\" : \"user@example.com\", \"description\" : \"ABAP Environment Q System\", \"is_development_allowed\" : true, \"sapsystemname\" : \"H02\", \"size_of_persistence\" : 4, \"size_of_runtime\" : 1 }"
