Note that SAP HCP, portal service was renamed to SAP Cloud Platform Portal starting March 2017.


You want to create a new site but you are not sure what to do and how much effort and time it will take – well, you came to the right place.

I would like to share with you how you can create your own Portal Service site in 3 steps easy and quick steps:

Step 1: Get your trial account

  1. Go to

  2. Click on Try Now.

  3. Complete the registration process.


Step 2: Activate the Portal Service

  1. In the SAP HCP cockpit, in the menu panel, click on Services:

  2. Browse or search for Portal Service and click on it.

  3. Click Enable.

  4. Click Go to Service.

You are now directed to the portal service Admin Space where you manage your sites and content.



Step 3: Create your site


  1. In the Admin Space, click Create New Site.


  Tip - On the Home page you will find links to useful information that will help you quickly create a site.


2. Name the site.

    3. Choose a site template (I recommend that you start with the marketing or parallax templates

        which are part of available sample templates)

4. Click Create.


That’s it 🙂


Your new site appears in the Site Designer where you can review, edit, or simply publish it for use.
