In this exercise, we will create the various Connections needed across the remaining exercises of this Quick Start guide.

Primary Learning Objective

This exercise is designed to reinforce the concept of Connections.

Secondary Learning Objectives



A Workspace named Learning OneCloud with a DEV environment needs to exist. See the Learning OneCloud Quick Start Guide for more information.

⚠️ To proceed further with the following exercise, a provisioned Planful account is required. Be sure to have a:

  • Username

  • Password

  • Tenant Code

  • Server Address

With the required credentials to access Planful, please follow these steps:

Step 1: Add a Connection

To add a new Connection, or view an existing OneCloud Connection, click the Connections tab on the navigation pane on the left of the page.

  • Click on the (+) button in the lower, right-hand corner.

  • Under BizApp, select Planful for this demonstration.

  • Choose the desired Runner. Here it's CloudRunner.

  • Rename the Connection "Planful (DEV)".

  • Complete the "Properties" Section with the request information.

  • Scroll down to confirm the Environment for "DEV" is enabled.

    • Click the corresponding box, as necessary.

  • Save the Connection.

📓 Users may opt to enable as many available Environments as desired. This security feature prevents Connections from being accessible in different Environments, which in turn limits Commands that can be executed from said Environment.

Step 2: Create a Connection for Production

📓 This second step may or may not be applicable to your environment, but it is being performed to simulate connection mapping in a future tutorial which is a feature with OneCloud's Lifecycle Management (LCM). If you only have a single Host Analytics environment, then simply use the same connection credentials.

Repeat the steps above, but call the connection "Planful (PROD)", enable the "PROD" Environment, and disable the "DEV" Environment.
