Where are you?

You’re currently reading the first part of a four-part tutorial:

 

1. Create a Developer Account on the HCP Trial Landscape and Enable the SAP Translation Hub Service.

2. Use SAP Web IDE to Create a Simple Fiori App and to Search for UI Texts.

3. Create a Translation Project and Translate Your Fiori App.

4. Change Your App and Start the Translation Process for Your Fiori App Again (Optional).

 

What’s this part of the tutorial about?

Before you can do anything on SAP HANA 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 HANA Cloud Platform. The account is the top-level entity on SAP HANA 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 HANA 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 HANA Cloud Platform.

 

I Have a User, Let Me Get Started!

What You Need to Do What You See

Open SAP HANA 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 HANA Cloud Platform for the first time. Section1_procedure1HCP_Disclaimer.png

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.

Hey, I Need a User!

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).

You have now created a free developer account on SAP HANA 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.
