At the end of this tutorial, you will have a username and password, and will be able to sign in to the SAP Gateway web front end.

  • Step 1

    Sign up here!

    The sign up uses your SAP Cloud Identity to verify you. (So, if you don’t have an SAP website account, create one first!) The SAP Gateway server uses your User ID as your account name. You provide your name, and email address. Once you have accepted the terms and conditions, the server will create an account, and then email you the temporary password.

  • Step 2

    Connect to the SAP Gateway SAP GUI for HTML:

    When you receive the email, open up a web browser and point it to the SAP GUI for HTML. The server will ask you to change your temporary password. Once you have done that, you can access the SAP Gateway service.

  • Step 3

    Go back to the sign-up form. The form will find you in the system, display your username, and allow you to reset your password. Once your password is reset you will get an email confirming that the password has been reset.

  • Step 4

    The Web GUI is the only way to connect to the system.

    SAP GUI for HTML

    For security reasons we have disabled connections from the SAP GUI for Windows or SAP GUI for Java client. Please use the SAP GUI for HTML instead.*

  • Step 5

    The main purpose of the system is to learn about consuming SAP Gateway Services. All URL’s to SAP Gateway for this system start with:


    Please have a look at the Sample Services and how to use them. The system is only for consumption of OData Services not for building new ones. If you are interested in building new services you have the option of choosing one of the other systems on the previous entry page. We will not hand out authorizations for developing any ABAP on this system.

  • Step 6

    The System is an SAP ECC (SAP ERP Central Component) filled with some Demo Data. You do have read and write authorizations to all modules but are restricted form accessing administrative functionality. Furthermore the system allows you to access the development tools but does not allow development itself. Debugging with viewing permissions is however possible.

  • Step 7
