After the NEO trial landscape for SAP Cloud Platform has been closed, this offering is not available any more.


Good news for all who like to test SAP Cloud Platform Forms by Adobe (formerly known as SAP Forms as a Service or form service by Adobe) live: a free trial offering is now available within the official HANA trial landscape.

Simply logon to the SAP Cloud Platform cockpit on trial landscape to access the service:

If you don't have a user to logon, you can register here:

If you are going to check it out, please keep in mind that there are a few limitations compared to the official version:

      • the trial period is 30 days

      • you can send up to 300 requests (max. 5 pages per request)

Once you are logged on, you can use a self-service to enable SAP Forms by Adobe (this self-service is only available on the trial landscape for external customers).

Choose Services from the navigation panel to access the list of available services. As you can see, SAP Forms by Adobe is still in status not enabled:

Click on the service to access the detail view. The configuration links at the bottom of the screen are still disabled. To activate them, just press Enable:

Now, after a short processing time, the service and the configuration links are enabled:

Choose the link SAP Forms by Adobe (Roles & Destinations) to access the Roles & Destinations view.

The user name you used to enable the service is assigned to the roles ADSAdmin and ADSCaller automatically:

For the remaining setup tasks just follow the steps described in SAP Forms by Adobe documentation and you can start exploring all the features that this service provides.
