Re-enable HMC in SAP Hybris version 6.x

Hybris Logo

1. Overview

The HMC is the old version of the Backoffice in Hybris, It’s being replaced by Backoffice now.

Personally I found HMC very handy, it’s one of my favorite tools in Hybris.

Unfortunately, it is deprecated now and will be removed from Hybris in the Q1 2018 release.

In this article, I will show you how to re-enable HMC in SAP Hybris version 6.x.

2. Steps

1. Add hmc extension to your localextensions.xml.

<!-- ...\hybris\config\localextensions.xml -->

<hybrisconfig ...>

	<!-- ... -->
    <extension name="hmc" />
	<!-- ... -->


2. Build the project using ant all command.

$ ant clean all

3. Restart the Hybris server again using.

$ hybrisserver.bat

4. Navigate to HAC -> Platform -> Update and run an update with only Update running system and Clear the hMC configuration from the database checked.

Run update system from HAC in Hybris


5. Now navigate to https://localhost:9002/hmc/hybris and use admin/nimda to authenticate.

From 6.7 on the HMC is no longer included. I copied the HMC extension from an 6.3 to an 6.7 installation and than followed your article. It worked but for most built-in types the HMC configuration is gone so the navigation tree and editors are hardly usable.
I would not rely on this on the long run but it could be helpful as an interims solution in some situations.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
