Dev spaces are like isolated virtual machines in the cloud that can be quickly spun-up. Each dev space type contains tailored tools and pre-installed run-times for a target scenario such as SAP Fiori or mobile development. This simplifies and saves time in setting up the development environment as there’s no need to install anything or upgrade; letting developers focus on their business domain, anytime, anywhere.

  1. Go to your SAP Business Technology Platform trial subaccount and click the Services -> Instances and Subscriptions option.

  2. Locate the SAP Business Application Studio entry and click Go to Application

    Go To Application
  3. Choose Create Dev Space. Please NOTE: In the SAP BTP trial you are limited to only two Dev Spaces and only one can be active at a time. If you have performed other workshops, you might already have reached your maximum. In that case you might have to delete one of the other dev spaces in order to continue with this workshop.

  4. Enter HANA for your dev space name and choose SAP HANA Native Application as the kind of application you are creating.

  5. The Dev space will automatically be configured with the most common tools you need for the type of application you choose. However you can also choose additional, optional extensions.

  6. Once all selections are completed, press Create Dev Space
