  • Actually, cloud portal is now available for _all_ users with a NW Cloud development account. The old constraint that only account created after October 16th have access is no longer valid and could be removed here. It is already gone on the welcome page on

    • Thanks Marco. Actually phrasing was changed in this page to reflect that, for the sake of those who could not access the portal. Bottom line - all trial user can and welcome to access the cloud portal.

  • When I try to apply an account, it says export control need to review my account?

    I am SAP Employee.

    This is a Cloud solution.

    How can you control a Cloud solution to the export control location? IP restriction?

    • Hi Henry,

      We are working on improving the legal process around the access to SAP trials.

  • Hi

    How could I change the database, which I have chosen while the first registration? There i clicked on HANA but I want a MaxDB now..

    What could I do?

    Thanks, Andi

    • Hi Andreas,

      The option to choose the database is applicable for the Hana Cloud Developer Account. I guess that this is not reversible but you can create additional account and choose MAxDB.

      Cloud Portal is currently running only on Hana Database.

      Best Regards,

        • Hi,

          Here are the answers:

          1. SAP announced that SAP NetWeaver Cloud with all related services including the portal are merged into SAP HANA Cloud. The funtionality are unchanged, it is a matter of rebranding and reflecting an evolution in SAP's cloud platform strategy.

          2. SAP HANA Cloud Portal is running on top of the HANA Cloud pltform. The platfrom is a java-based development environment and shared services. The Cloud Portal enables easy creation and consumption of portal sites that allow users to expose cloud, social and business apps including non-SAP content in a composed portal site.
