Expired: SAP Fiori Cloud, extended demo – Preserving your Content Beyond 90 Days

Starting October 6, 2015, all SAP Fiori Cloud, extended demo accounts will be allotted 90 days for hands on experience. If you’re not cautious about this timeline you could run the risk of losing all the hard work you’ve done over the past 90 days. We don’t want anyone to lose their work so this blog will explain what you need to do to preserve your work prior to expiration.

 

Tip: Put a reminder in your calendar before your 90 day expiration.

SAP will trigger a warning to your extended demo account indicating your expiration a few days prior. If you don’t log into your account, for whatever reason (vacation, a big project etc.) you may not see the warning and come back one day to find your work gone. To be safe, set a reminder in your calendar.

 

Tip: Export your work

SAP Web IDE & UI Theme Designer allow you the option to export your work. Try to get yourself in the habit of exporting the work you would want to use productively, that way you’ll always have a copy. Below are the steps for exporting from your current account and then importing into a new account.

SAP Web IDE
Export (from existing account)

  • Launch your extended app from the launchpad and choose develop apps > launch SAP Web IDE
  • In SAP Web IDE choose the parent folder of your app so it’s highlighted blue then choose File > Export
  • A zip file will be downloaded with your extension – save this to your desktop

Import (to new account)

  • From SAP Fiori Cloud, extended demo (or regular enterprise account) launch SAP Web IDE
  • Choose File > Import > File or Project > Select your extension project
  • Your extension project will be imported and you can continue customization’s or again deploy to SAP Cloud Platform and register to SAP Fiori launchpad

If you have created Fiori like apps in SAP Web IDE you will need to use the same export/import option mentioned above to preserve your work.

UI Theme Designer

The blog The New and Improved SAP Fiori, Demo Cloud  discusses, among other things, the impact you can expect to have from the SAPUI5 library upgrade to your custom themes. In that blog I described how to export and import your custom themes. You will need to do the same steps mentioned in that blog to preserve your work.

Export:

  • From within your extended demo offering select customize theme > Launch UI Theme Designer
  • On the home screen of the UI theme designer, select your theme and then choose Export from the list of actions above the table.
  • Save the zip file of your theme

Import:

  • From within your extended demo offering select  Import a theme
  • Find the theme you’ve saved and import it
  • You will be able to access your theme from the manage themes option
  • If you need to apply more changes/edits to your theme choose customize theme > Launch UI Theme designer
  • Choose Theme > Close
  • Choose Import and import your theme

There is no way to export any of the personalization or administrative tasks completed in the launchpad or SAP Fiori launchpad configuration cockpit. If you did some personalization or created a number of content packages I recommend taking pictures of your work so you can easily re-create it at a later time. The same applies to any roles you’ve created and assigned in SAP Cloud Platform.

If you’ve done any other customization’s that aren’t mentioned here and you’d like to know how to preserve please comment on the blog and I’ll be happy to provide guidance.

      Hello Elizabeth,

      Just so I get this straight:

      HANA Cloud Platform Cockpit trial: no expiration

      HANA Cloud Portal (and Fiori launch pad): 90 days from creation?

      That is correct - the 90 day account is intended to help customers make a licensing decision.  The Fiori cloud edition is not running on the trial HCP landscape.

      I can't access the trial account anymore, what should I do to reactivate it?

      You can simply create another one, by accessing the demo and pressing the "Customize and Extend" tile.  A new HCP account will be created and configured in the background.

      Hello,

      I understand that in Trial HCP account, there is no SAP Fiori, Could Edition.

      What is the less expensive HCP offer which includes SAP Fiori, Cloud Edition ?

      Thanks.

      Hi Jeremy,

      You're right, Fiori, cloud edition has it's own trial for 90 days that you can access here and there is also an HCP trial that does not include Fiori, cloud edition. Fiori, cloud edition is now generally available and you can learn more here. There is a license for Fiori, cloud edition and separate license options for HCP. For the best information for your specific scenario I recommend contacting your AE.

      Thanks,
