This blog has been LIVE since 28th April 2020. And now it is the time for us to finally retire the Function as a service (beta). Hence, all the existing FaaS (beta) instances will get cleaned up in the very near future.

For any query, please raise a ticket.


Functions as a service (beta), a fully-managed service for building, running, and managing functions has been available since October 2018 as a beta offering.   However, after a week’s time of release of this blog, it will be sunset as based on SAP’s revised cloud strategy, Function as a Service is already available for productive use as a part of SAP Extension Factory, serverless runtime.


SAP Extension Factory, serverless runtime consists of the following:

  • Extension Center - a management UI


  • Functions-as-a-Service for serverless code execution


  • OData Provisioning to connect to ABAP Backend systems via SAP Gateway / OData


The productive Function as a Service details available for Customers in SAP Store.  It will also be available in Trial sometime soon.
