    If you are not using SAP HANA, express edition, or you have changed the ports, you can find out the right URL using command xs apps on the Command Line Interface and look for the URL for application xsa-cockpit. You can access the CLI directly from an SSH console on the server or download using the Download Manager. You can get the Download Manager after registering at the Download site
