About the Certification

SAP Extension Suite (Retired)

SAP introduced the Extension Suite in 2020 to complement the SAP Integration Suite, together comprising the SAP Cloud Platform at the time.

The Extension Suite contained all services that were not part of the Integration Suite, a rather eclectic collection, further categorised under the labels Digital Experience, Development Efficiency, and Digital Process Automation.

Around the time of SAP Teched 2022, the Extension Suite was retired as portfolio. The services, for the most part are still available, some are now part of the SAP Build.

SAP BTP Extension Developer

The SAP Certified Development Associate - SAP Extension Suite certification (C_CPE_13) succeeded the SAP Cloud Platform Enterprise Extensions certification (C_CPE_12) and SAP Cloud Platform (C_CP_11).

With the suite retired, the certification also changed name

However, not all material has been updated yet. Course CLD200 - SAP Extension Suite is still referenced as the recommended course to prepare for the exam (time or writing)

In other words, the name of the exam and certification have changed but not the actual version (C_CPE_14). The content and questions are still the same.

Topic Areas

Although the content has not changed, the topic areas have been slightly modified.

  • SAP Fiori Elements is now called User Interface

  • SAP Business Technology, Platform, Web Development Standards, and Connectivity have been merged into Tools and Standards.

No changes to Authorisation and Trust Management, SAP Cloud Application Programming model, and SAP Continuous Integration and Delivery.

The number of questions have been reduced from 80 to 60 and the time allowed from 3 to 2 hours.

Each topic area is a chapter in the book. Although these no longer correspond to the current situation, this is a minor inconvenience.
