Subscribe and Use SAP Build Apps Smoothly – Via Booster

You are the best. Yes, you heard this right! Let me explain, why?

Right after the announcement of SAP Build Apps in the SAP TechEd, I got to see a lot of information floating on, What and How of SAP Build Apps. Our SAP community started sharing a lot of information. I was excited to read the comments, feedback and unpleasant experience from some of best SAP lovers, who were NOT able to subscribe to the service and use it. Trust me, that’s quite natural!

As you guys have always been the backbone for making SAP, the best. Let me share the steps to subscribe to this service and emphasize on something important.

Ways to Subscribe to SAP Build Service

There are 2 ways to subscribe to the new SAP Build Apps service:

a). Manually, or

b). via a Booster (Automatic Configuration)

In this blog, I am going to share the steps to subscribe to SAP Build Apps service via a Booster.

Know the Pre-requisites?

Before you use any of these ways to subscribe, you need to create an IAS tenant for your account. If you currently do not have it in place, please follow this guide to enable it.

Once, you have the IAS tenant, which most of us already have, just navigate to navigate to “Trust Configuration” view in your subaccount and Establish Trust to a “Custom IAS tenant“. Edit the Default identity provider via a pencil icon and disable Available for User Logon.

Get Ready to run a Booster

There are a set of steps you need to follow to enable the service after subscribing. Instead of do1ing it manually, you have a booster to automatically enable it for you.

To do so, in the global account view, navigate to the Boosters tab and search for SAP Build Apps. Click Start to launch an interactive configuration view.

Point to Note

While using the booster, you can choose to use an existing subaccount or create a new one.

  1. If you decide to use an existing subaccount, then make sure that its region matches with your SAP Build Apps subscription.
  2. In case you create a new subaccount, then configure it to choose a ‘Region’ matching your subscription. Ideally, AWS US10 and EU10 are the most commonly used options.

You should be all set to use your SAP Build Apps without any issues. As I believe in breaking down a bigger task into smaller one, same applies to the task of subscribing to SAP Build Apps service. Catering to the comments of some of our dear readers, this blog will help you to subscribe to this service without any issues.

If you are following the manual approach subscribing to the service, keep watching this space. It will be there any moment.
