As announced in my previous blog post, for the past few months, we've been busily reworking our guide on best practices for continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) - and we're proud to present you the results!

Depending on your level of expertise, you can now choose between two different guides:

For an overview of all solutions we provide for continuous integration and delivery, see SAP Solutions for Continuous Integration and Delivery.

Let’s have a closer look at our new guides:

Continuous Integration and Delivery Introduction Guide


This guide provides you with basic knowledge for setting up and implementing continuous integration and delivery processes. It gives an overview of the concepts and principles of CI/CD, explains both procedures and their relation, and helps you plan your own CI/CD process. The Continuous Integration and Delivery Introduction Guide consists of two parts: Basic Concepts and Principles helps you get to know the concepts and principles of continuous integration and delivery and Continuous Integration and Delivery Processes provides you with information about CI/CD processes and the actors involved.

Continuous Integration and Delivery Processes


The Continuous Integration and Delivery Best Practices Guide


This guide provides procedures to implement continuous integration and delivery pipelines on any CI/CD stack and demonstrates how to apply the principles of CI/CD to SAP-specific technologies. It also consists of two main parts: Set Up Your Pipeline, which helps you implement your own CI/CD pipeline and Enhance Your Pipeline, which lets you extend your finished pipeline with additional features.

Set Up Your Pipeline

Enhance Your Pipeline


We’ll constantly add new procedures to our guide – subscribe to our social media channels to stay up-to-date! You can find them on our Continuous Integration and Delivery by SAP overview page.

As for now, we’ve finished our renovation and content move, our links to the old Continuous Integration (CI) Best Practices are automatically redirected to the corresponding sections in our new guides, so don’t be surprised if you unexpectedly find yourself on the SAP Help Portal!

There are however two exceptions: Our two mobile scenarios, SAP Fiori Hybrid Apps with SAP Mobile Platform SDK and SAP Cloud Platform SDK for iOS, are still being revised. For the time being, they stay where they are - we’ll let you know once they’re finished and have moved, as well.
