What you can't do with the SAP Gateway Demo System

  • You can't access the system via Web Gui, since access via WebGui has been disabled

  • You can't develop your own repository objects such as tables, CDS views or classes to ensure stabiltity of the system. If you want to develop your own OData Services you have to get a trial version. Here we have two options:

  • Access is limited to either

    • Fiori Launchpad

    • OData and

    • RFC

  • You will not find any real Business data in this System since ES5 is just a pure SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.51 System without having a SAP S/4HANA system running on top of it.

How to do I get a user?

As with the predecessor system you have to sing up for an account in ES5. To do so simply follow this link:

Sign up for a demo account on ES5 here

How can I reset my password?

If you forgot your password you simply have to click on the same link that you have used to Register for a new user:

Click here to reset your password in ES5

What's new?

The new SAP Gateway System is based on SAP NetWeaver 751 and thus comes with several new features as opposed to the predecessor system ES4 which was based on SAP NetWeaver 740.

SAP Fiori Launchpad and SAP Fiori Reference apps

For all users we have configured SAP Fiori Launchpad where you will find four applications that have been deployed.

Demo services for SAP Fiori development

You can use SAP Business Appplication Studio to develop SAP Fiori applications on top of the demo services that are provided in the SAP Gateway demo system.

SAP Fiori Sample Applications

As an example you will find OData services that allow you to create SAP applications based on SAP Fiori Sample Applications.

Sample service GWSAMPLE_BASIC

There is also the well known basic sample service GWSAMPLE_BASIC available that provides you with a practical, working OData service with meaningful content that supports basic OData operations.

The following link would provide you a list of items of a sales order from the Enterprise Procurement demo data:

You can find more information about the basic sample service in the SAP Online Documentation

OData V4 demo service

In ES5 there is now also a first demo service available that supports OData V4.$meta...

More details can be found in the following blog OData V4 code based implementation – Overview.


Also the RMTSAMPLEFLIGHT service is available$metadata

Services that do not require authentication

We have added the following two services for read-only access that do not require any authentication.

We do not have a service that allows updates  and creates without an authentication since for this you need a CSRF token which is not issued by the ICF framework when an ICF node contains hardcoded credentials.

Which type of Access do I have?

After you have signed up for an account you can access the demo system in various ways:

SAP Business Application Studio
