I am happy to let you know that "SAP BTP, Kyma runtime" is finally part of the SAP BTP trial. It is available for some days now and we already saw a number of people who started exploring. Nevertheless, let me start from the beginning.

Get started

When you want to start your trial of Kyma runtime, open-up your SAP BTP trial account and create a sub-account in any region. Can you see the Enable Kymabutton? Great, then just click on it.

If your trial account already pre-existed, then you need to entitle Kyma to it:

  1. Open the Entitlements menu

  2. Configure Entitlements, then Add Service Plans

  3. Search for Kyma, select the trial-plan, and Add 1 Service Plan

  4. When you now go back to the Overview of your subaccount, you are able to Enable Kyma. This will take 1-2 hours.

After this has finished, you need to add your user to a dedicated role. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Role Collections

  2. Add a new one via + and by proving a name

  3. Open the Role collection, Edit it, and assign the role "KymaRuntimeNamespaceAdmin"

  4. Go back to the subaccount and open the Trust Configuration

  5. Select the sap.default, Show assignments to your trial user's email address, and Assign Role Collection you just created

Now you can access the Kyma console UI via the link in the subaccount's Overview. Here is the documentation for the steps.

Connecting your SAP application to Kyma runtime or mocking an application

One part of the Kyma-story is enabling you to extend SAP applications cloud-natively. Therefore, you can now connect your test tenants of the following SAP CX solutions to the trial Global Account and create a formation with your Kyma runtime:

  • SAP Commerce Cloud

  • SAP Sales- and Service Cloud, i.e.

    • SAP Cloud for Customer

    • SAP Field Service Management

Have a look into our documentation how to do that.

If you don't want to connect an SAP CX application to the trial account, you can simply mock an SAP application to being connected to Kyma runtime.
