  • How to create a Welcome card


Step 1: Get familiar with real world use case

An organization wants to share a welcome message to a new employee. Upon successful authentication in the SAP Mobile Cards app, the new employee sees a welcome card. In this card, the organization shows basic details to help the employee have a great first day. This card is available to the user without the user having to subscribe to the card.

Welcome Cards are Server Managed Cards that are automatically subscribed. When such a card is created, users automatically get instances of the card because they are automatically subscribed to the card.
