Create a MultiChain Trial Node

Create a MultiChain trial node on SAP Cloud Platform and access your dashboard.

You will learn

  • How to provision a MultiChain trial node on SAP Cloud Platform
  • How to access your MultiChain dashboard

Step 1: Understand MultiChain on SAP Cloud Platform

The MultiChain service on SAP Cloud Platform lets you create, delete, monitor, and maintain individual MultiChain nodes and then connect them to a blockchain network.

This service is supported by Small, Medium, Large, and Connect Your Own Network productive service plans.

In addition to productive service plans, we also offer a Trial service plan on the trial landscape. This plan comes with the following conditions:

  • One trial service instance per SAP Cloud Platform Global Account

  • MultiChain Service instances expire after 14 days, including the loss of the blockchain data (if not synced to a wider network), wallet data (public and private keys), and external IP addresses used to connect to other nodes.

  • An existing service instance, whether expired or not, must be deleted before a new service instance can be provisioned within the Global Account.

Step 3: Create MultiChain instance

Once in the MultiChain service, you will see a service description and the available plans. In this tutorial you will create a trial node. This allows you to provision a single testing node for a 14 day period. These 14 days run concurrently with your 30-day global account trial on SAP Cloud Platform, rather than activating an extension or superseding your global account trial terms.

Click the Instances tab on the side menu, opening an overview of available MultiChain instances in your subaccount.
