Following the announcement about the new SAP Launchpad service, I’m happy to update about the availability of the Launchpad service in the SAP BTP Trial environment, allowing you to build your Launchpad site, free of charge, on the public trial environment.

Enable your trial account in three simple steps:

  1. Create an SAP BTP Trial account though the following link

  2. Activate the Launchpad service

  3. Assign the Launchpad_Admin role to your User

Done! You can start using the Launchpad service in your trial account.

What’s next?

You can now build your first Launchpad Site, develop & integrate UI5 apps, integrate remote apps (e.g. Web Dynpro ABAP, SAP Gui for HTML), brand the launchpad, and more.


  • I highly recommended using the ES5 system, connect to your trial account and configure tiles

  • If you already have an existing SAP BTP Trial account, before activating the service you’ll have to configure Launchpad entitlement for your trial subaccount

  • Step-by-step mission guiding you through the process how to configure the Launchpad

  • Note that with the introduction of the Launchpad service to the SAP BTP trial environment, we have removed the portal service from the trial environment (for new trial accounts)

Let’s go! It’s learning time…
