  • How to create an account on the Gateway demo system (ES5)

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

Step 1: Where do I sign up?

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 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: What happens next?

Connect to the SAP Gateway Web GUI:

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

Step 3: What if I forgot or lost my username or password?

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 6: What is on the System?

The System is an SAP ECC (Enterprise Core Components) 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.
