Goal : This blog explains to add the service plans, assign the roles and create the instance for Automation Pilot in the Business Technology Platform (BTP). This blog focusses on usage of Automation Pilot with respect to SAP HANA Cloud.

There are two approaches in order to add the service plan to your subaccount, the traditional approach of adding the service plans and the Boosters.
