There are a number of reasons why this might happen: 

  • Only software that you have purchased will display in the SAP Software Download Center. Contact your account executive if you need to purchase software. If you don’t know who your account executive is, contact your SAP Local Support Center. 
  • If you work for a company that has multiple customer accounts with SAP, ensure that you are logged in to the SAP ONE Support Launchpad with an S-user ID that is associated with the customer account licensed for the product you are looking for. You can check the customer number associated with your S-user ID under My Profile. Contact one of your company’s user administrators if your S-user ID is not associated with the right customer account for the software you need. 
  • The version of software is out of maintenance and you have yet to do a license conversion to the newer version. Contact your local SAP Contract Department for assistance. 
  • The software you need is still in the Early Adopter Care program. Check the Product Availability Matrix for more information.
