Hitachi HCP Anywhere

The DryvIQ Hitachi HCP Anywhere connector makes a read-only connection to your HCP Anywhere platform so you can migrate your content to or synchronize your content with your other storage platforms. The first step is to create the connection by providing the connection information required for DryvIQ to connect to the platform. The connector can be created using any account with permissions to access the content.

Creating a Connection

  1. Expand the Manage section in the left navigation menu.

  2. Click Connections.

  3. Click Add connection.

  4. Select HCP Anywhere as the platform on the Add connection modal.

  5. Enter the connection information. Reference the table below for details about each field.

  6. Test the connection to ensure DryvIQ can connect using the information entered.

  7. You will see a "Connection test succeeded" message on the Add connection modal when DryvIQ establishes connection. (If you don't see this message, verify the information you entered.)

  8. Select Done to finish creating the connection.


Add connection modal for Hitachi Object Storage







Display as

Enter the display name for the connection. If you will be creating multiple connections, ensure the name readily identifies the connection. The name displays in the application, and you can use it to search for the connection and filter lists.

If you do not add a display name, the connection will automatically be named, “Hitachi Object Storage.” DryvIQ recommends you enter a name that more readily identifies the connection, especially if you will be creating multiple connections.


Base Server URL

Enter the base server URL. Refer to Hitachi’s documentation for how to identify your base server URL.


Management API URL

Enter the HCP Management API URL.


Skip SSL Verification Check

Indicate if you want to skip the SSL verification check. Select Yes or No.


User ID

Enter the user ID that should be used to make the connection. The account must be an active directory user account with Data Management API access turned on in the account profile.



Enter the password for the account that is being used to make the connection.


Disable User Preload

Select Yes of No.
