Dev spaces are like isolated virtual machines in the cloud that can be instantly spin-up. Each dev space type contains tailored tools and pre-installed run-times for a target scenario such as SAP Fiori or mobile development. This simplifies and saves time in setting up the development environment as there’s no need to install anything or upgrade, letting developers focus on their business domain, anytime, anywhere.

  • Step 1
    1. Access SAP Business Application Studio.


      1. Use a link, e.g. bookmark, to the dev space manager of SAP Business Application Studio if you have it.

      2. In a trial account, launch the SAP BTP trial landing page, and choose SAP Business Application Studio.

        launch sap business application studio

      3. In a productive account (as well as a trial account), access SAP BTP cockpit, navigate to the subaccount with SAP Business Application Studio subscription, click Instances and Subscriptions, and click SAP Business Application Studio.

      You might be asked to accept the privacy statement. Check the box and click OK.

    2. Choose Create Dev Space in the landing page or dev space manager.

    3. Enter Demo_Fiori for your dev space name.

    4. Choose SAP Fiori as the application type.

    5. Click Create Dev Space.

      The dev space is in status STARTING. Wait until it is in status RUNNING. This might take a couple of minutes.

      Open Dev Space

      You might be asked to accept the privacy statement. Check the box and click OK.

    2. The SAP Fiori dev space opens and the Get Started tab appears.

      Open Dev Space

      You may be prompted to accept the legal terms.

      The purple color of the status bar indicates that there is no open workspace or folder.

      Wait until “We have finished installing all tools and templates” notification appears at the bottom right of the screen.

    Hooray!!! With this, you have successfully completed the creation of a dev space for SAP Fiori applications development.

    After a period of idle time the dev space is automatically stopped. In order to re-start the dev space open the dev space manager, click the Play icon, and click the dev space.

    The period for idle time for Factory accounts is different than for trial accounts.
