Set Up API Management from Integration Suite
- How to provision API Management capability from Integration Suite.
- Access API Management features and resources available on Integration Suite.
To set up the API Management capability from Integration Suite, you should first have an Integration Suite subscription.
IMPORTANT Ensure that you don’t have an instance of starter plan created in the same subaccount, where you plan to create an Integration Suite subscription. Also, note that API Management capabilities from Integration Suite and API Management subscriptions using the standalone tile cannot coexist in the same subaccount.
- Step 1
Log on to SAP BTP Cockpit and navigate to your subaccount.
In the navigation area of the subaccount, choose Services > Service Marketplace. Search for Integration Suite and choose Create.
On the New Instances and Subscriptions dialog, select the Service and the Plan and choose Create.
Wait for the subscription to complete successfully.
Choose View Subscription on the Creation in Progress dialog.
Check the status of the submission in subscriptions section on the Instances and Subscriptions page. If the subscription is successful you’ll notice the status of the Integration Suite shown as Subscribed.
To access Integration Suite, you must first assign the “Integration Provisioner” role to yourself.
IMPORTANT If you choose Go to Application without assigning the Integration Provisioner role, an application authentication error appears. If the error persists after assigning the role, clear your web browser cache, and log out of the application and log in again.

On the navigation pane, choose Security > Users.
Select the user to whom you want to assign the role, and under Role Collections section, choose Assign Role Collection.

Choose Activate on the Activate Capabilities dialog.
On the resulting screen, choose OK once the status changes from In Progress to Active.

In the Set-up Confirmation window, review the provided details and choose Confirm to start the onboarding process.
You’re redirected to a progress window, which states API Management Service Setup In Progress.
The Configuration process is triggered, where the necessary resources are provisioned for you. It’s followed by Testing the Setup, where a simple API Proxy is deployed and invoked to check that everything is set up properly.
When the processes complete, the indicators turn green to indicate that the processes are successful. A Release Notification email is sent out to the email ID, which you provided earlier in the process in the Configure the API Management Service screen. This email contains details of the newly set up API Management service on your account.
Log out of the Integration Suite and login again.
You can now create APIs, build API proxies as a service provider, or use APIs and other convenient services.
