Step 1: The real-world use case

An organisation 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 organisation 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 Single Instance 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.
