Prerequisites

  • You can view the tutorials without an SAP ID, but you will not be able to keep your progress and earn badges without an SAP ID (nor do this tutorial and earn the tutorial beginner badge). If you don’t have one, go to Create your SAP Universal ID or click the person icon at the top-right of this page person.

We want to give a very quick tour of SAP Tutorials.

Since you are already doing a tutorial – this tutorial – you already know some of the basics. Still, we’d like to review some things maybe you didn’t know.

The main thing to know: the SAP Tutorial Navigator now provides over 1,000 tutorials contained within hundreds of scenarios and projects.


Step 1: Start to complete this tutorial

In every step of a tutorial, you have either a Done button or a question you have to answer. This let’s you indicate that you have completed the step and to keep track of your progress.

In order to keep your progress, you must be logged into your SAP account. If the Done or Submit Answer button has a lock on it, then click it and you will be automatically logged in.

Locked

You can also click the person icon at the top right of the page.

Login

After clicking the button, it should look like this:

Completed

Below, in this step, click the Done button (if it is locked, once you are logged in, click it again).

Step 2: Open the Tutorial Navigator

Go to https://developers.sap.com/tutorial-navigator.html to open the SAP Tutorial Navigator.

Tutorial Navigator

If you want to search for tutorials related to a particular product, select a filter under Products.

You can filter the filters by entering some text, for example, type in AI to find the filter for SAP Conversational AI.

Filter

You can do the same for Topics, for such general categories like Java or iOS.

Topics

Step 3: Search for a tutorial

Of course, you can do a free text search, which will match words in the title or description.

Search for a mission that matches First Chatbot

Search

You can instead search by tag, so if I wanted to get all the SAP Conversational AI tutorials, I could enter AI in the filter search …

Search for tag

… and then select the SAP Conversational AI tag.

Search by tag

Of course, you can use both. For example, search for Python and then further filter by SAP Conversational AI tag.

More information on tags? See Using Tags.
