mobile auth - hero image.png

Greetings Builders! This week we have released a significant feature for our customers: mobile authentication.

We have now enabled SAP Mobile Services, which authenticates end users in your native mobile applications and provides access to integrations and services from SAP Business Technology Platform. 

SAP Build Apps uses SAP Cloud Identity Services – Identity Authentication (IAS) for user authentication in the cloud. For more information on this topic, see the article: What is Identity Authentication?

Now with the ability to harness the power of Identity Authentication, you can increase the enterprise readiness of your company’s mobile apps by ensuring seamless integration with SAP Business Technology Platform. This feature allows you to reuse destinations of backend systems, which are also used for web applications and many other BTP services.

To get started with taking advantage of this feature, verify that you have Subaccount entitlements of at least 1 unit for Mobile Services (standard plan) as a prerequisite. 


After configuring mobile authentication in your BTP Cockpit and your build settings, you can build your first mobile app with authentication services enabled. Your users will be prompted to sign in with your Identity Provider (IdP) the first time they open your app. The session will remain active until the app’s cache is cleared or the session is revoked manually.

We look forward to seeing our customers unlock more possibilities by enabling mobile authentication in their apps! Feel free to share any feedback or questions about this release in the comments.
