Enable SAP Focused Run Reverse Proxy in SAP Cloud ALM
Several SAP public cloud solutions now support the delivery of monitoring data to SAP Focused Run using PUSH data collection.
PUSH data collection means that data collection is triggered in the managed cloud service and that the managed cloud service is actively pushing monitoring data to SAP Cloud ALM. The advantages of PUSH data collection are a usually much easier setup and that monitoring data is only transferred if there is actual monitoring data to report.
However, usually SAP Focused Run is located behind a firewall in the customer data center. To enable SAP public cloud services to push monitoring data directly to SAP Focused Run, this firewall would have to be opened and SAP Focused Run would be accessible from the Internet. This is not desirable.
Hence, another solution had to be provided. The SAP Focused Run Reverse Proxy is this solution. In this solution SAP Cloud ALM together with an SAP Cloud Connector act as reverse proxy for SAP Focused Run and allow a secure transfer of pushed monitoring data to SAP Focused Run.
The SAP Cloud ALM entitlement is included in SAP Enterprise Support Cloud Editions. For more information please click here.
