What’s this part of the tutorial about?
Before you can do anything on SAP Cloud Platform, you need an account. If you don’t already have one, you can register for a free developer account on the trial landscape of SAP Cloud Platform. The account is the top-level entity on SAP Cloud Platform, and is required to deploy, configure, and administer applications, account users, services etc.
To create a developer account on the trial landscape of SAP Cloud Platform, you need a user registered with SAP ID Service. SAP ID Service is the identity provider used by SAP’s on-demand services and platforms, like SAP Community Network, SAP Business ByDesign, and SAP Cloud Platform.
- If you already have a user registered with SAP ID Service, see I Have a User, Let Me Get Started!
- If you don’t have a user registered with SAP ID Service, see Hey, I Need a User!
|What You Need to Do||What You See|
Open SAP Cloud Platform Cockpit in a Google Chrome browser.
Enter the details of your user registered with SAP ID Service, and choose Log On.
|After logging on successfully, accept the legal disclaimers that appear when you log on to SAP Cloud Platform for the first time.|
You are taken to the cockpit, which is the central administration UI for your account.
The account name is displayed under Account in the upper left of the UI. In the screenshot, the account name is p1941652466trial.
Now that you’ve logged on, you need to activate SAP Translation Hub. How you do that is explained a little further down this page at Now to Activate SAP Translation Hub.
To register a new user with SAP ID Service, you need an e-mail account (for example, through a public e-mail provider like Gmail or Yahoo).
|What You Need to Do||What you See|
|Open SAP Cloud Platform Cockpit in a Google Chrome browser, and choose Register.|
|Fill in the registration form that appears.|
After completing your registration, you will receive an e-mail that contains a link to activate your account.
Follow the instructions in the e-mail to activate your account.
|To complete the account creation process, choose Continue.|
You are now taken to the cockpit, which is the central administration UI for your account.
The account name is displayed under Account in the upper left of the UI. In this example (see screenshot), the account name is p1941652466trial.
You have now created a free developer account on SAP Cloud Platform. In the future, you can access and administer your account using the following URL: https://account.hanatrial.ondemand.com/cockpit. Now you need to activate SAP Translation Hub. How you do that is described in the next section.
The Bottom Line
That’s it for this part of the tutorial. If you didn’t already have one, you now have a developer account and you’ve enabled SAP Translation Hub for your account.
Now it’s time to work on an app in Part 2: Use SAP Web IDE to Create a Fiori App and to Search for UI Texts.
