The Booster

To start the activation of the service you can use our guided procedures in SAP BTP called Boosters. On the left side of the screen click on the Boosters item in the menu:

The overview page of our booster opens and you can proceed with clicking on start.


The booster tests the prerequisites for our service and your credentials. After the green boxes show that you passes the test successfully you can click on next.

In the next step you can decide if you want to create a new sub-account or use an existing one. In our example we go with the new sub-account scenario (1) and we are click on next (2).

On the next page the system shows you all generated IDs which can be changed or accepted. The most important point here is that you can see correct service and the plan in the green box then click on next.

On the next page you are able to maintain users which are directly added to the SAP Process Automation service, of course you can add users later. The user which executes the bot will be already added to both roles, the admin role (1) and the developer role (2). to confirm click on next (3).

On the last page of the booster you see a summary for review. After the review click on Finish.

The booster starts the deployment which can take up to five minutes as we are doing a lot of work for you in the background to get the service ready.

After everything is done you the pop-up with the success message and you can navigate to the sub-account.

In the sub-.account click on Instances and Subscriptions in the menu.
