SAP provides you direct access to real-time support channels Support Assistant and Expert Chat, which may be able to instantly answer your questions, even without the need to create a support case. For this, you only need to have a S User, which allows you to access these support services from our Support Portal “SAP For Me” (me.sap.com) 

Your Benefits in further detail: 

  • Support Assistant allows you to narrow down on your topic at hand, providing you with the assets, which answer most of the questions our customers bring to us. We have seen that a considerable fraction of customer questions can be instantly answered via this channel, without the need of a support case. 

  • Expert Chat allows you to start a chat session with one of our Support Experts ad hoc. For simple questions, you can directly receive tailored guidance to your questions. 

  • You can also book an appointment with a Support Expert by using our offering “Schedule an Expert”. In this session, the topic you mentioned during booking the session will be discussed. 

* Note: SAP replaces the former Support Portal “One Support Launchpad” with ”SAP For Me” on April 23, 2023.

Below sample screenshot shows how authorizations look in SAP for Me for some of the above capability areas(Super Admin S User view).

Actions required by customer & partners – Very Important 


  • Each customer company has named an IT Contact during contract signature. This person is treated as a Super Admin S User and has received the Super Admin S User logon credentials via email.  

    • If you do not know this person, you can call the SAP support hotline for help (support.sap.com/call1sap, press 2, again press 2) 

    • The Super Admin S User can create S Users for other colleagues in the customer company. 

  • We request all Key Users in SAP Business ByDesign & SAP Cloud for Customer (both at customer & at partner companies) to have a S User ID (Cloud Administrator Access), so that you use SAP for Me with all its capabilities. 

    • If you don’t have an S User, we request you to create S User ID for the Key User who can take care of Service Operations, Maintenance, and other capabilities of SAP for Me for your ByD/C4C solution. 

    • You can ask your Super Admin S User or the SAP support hotline for help. 

Let us give you a few more details about the S User: 

  • An S–User is a 10-digit ID beginning with the letter ‘S’ created by the Super Administrator of your company to allow you access to the SAP Support Portal and SAP for Me, amongst other support sites. Your S-User is evidence of your support agreement with SAP. 

  • Based on the access level we distinguish the following types of S Users:

    • Super Administrators: Super administrators have all authorizations for all applications in the SAP for Me portal at the highest possible level.  

Note: SAP creates the first S-user ID for new customers and assigns this user the highest level of authorization. (This ID is generated before the contract is posted) 

    • Cloud Administrator: This applies to customers who have licensed an SAP cloud product. Cloud administrators have all authorizations that are required to fulfil all SAP cloud-related tasks in SAP for Me portals. 

    • User Administrators: User administrators are users who have the authorization to grant all authorizations that they have themselves to other users or revoke them. They are responsible for creating and administering S-user IDs.
