By default, your subaccount is configured to subscribe to content. If you intend to add your own developed content, you need to configure the subaccount.

Our overall goal in this group of tutorials is to create apps in SAP Web IDE and make them available for use in a Portal site. Since you’ll be developing and deploying apps in the Cloud Foundry environment, you will need a space. The space provides you with all the services you need to develop your app.

  • Step 1
    1. In your SAP Cloud Platform global account, click your subaccount and then click Enable Cloud Foundry.

      Enable Cloud Foundry
    2. In the popup that opens, enter the Organization Name as portal-dev_companyportal and click Create.

      An organization is a development account.

      Create Organization

      Once you’ve created the Organization, a Spaces menu is added to the side navigation panel.

    3. Click Spaces and then click New Space.

      Create space
    4. Enter dev as the Space Name and click Save.

      Name space

    Before you can continue developing, you should make sure you have enough resources available such as memory. For example, in the image below, you can see that our Space currently has a free memory of 4GB. If you do not have available memory or run into issues, contact your SAP Cloud Platform administrator and ask them to provide the relevant entitlements and quotas.

    Your subaccount should have the following entitlements:

    • Application Runtime

    • Portal

    • HTML5 Applications

    View quotas and apps
  • Step 2

    Why do we use a Space in the Cloud Foundry development environment?
