  2. From the SAP HANA Cloud Platform Cockpit page, click Services in the navigation bar, scroll down until you see the Mobile Services group then click on the Development & Operations tile.

    Services tab

  3. Click on the Go to Service link to launch the Development & Operations Cockpit application.
