Changes to SAP SuccessFactors HCM Cloud Partner Services (Partner Portal)
On September 26, 2016 – the SAP SuccessFactors HCM Cloud Partner Services Portal was sunset and migrated to a NEW site. The new site is named: SAP SuccessFactors HCM Cloud Operations Portal and will provide access to tools that will support provisioning and delivery of the SAP SuccessFactors HCM Solution Suite, including:
- All Operations Request Forms associated with BizX Provisioning Accounts, LMS, ONB, WFA, RMK and Jam implementations
- The Demo Request Tool, and
- Access to the Operations Service Desk Support team.
The user interface will look a bit different, however you will find the navigation to be much more intuitive. For example, request forms currently found under different tabs within the portal, will be brought together in one place.
- Bookmark the new portal URL for convenient, direct access: https://hcmcloudops.successfactors.com/ (Note: the URL will not be active until September 26th). There will also be a temporary redirect on the existing portal.
- You will no longer be required to login with a separate sfsfx\ user name and password. The portal will be accessed via the same SAP-ID login credentials you received via Manage My Partnership (MMP) on PartnerEdge.
- If you do not have an S-User ID, please visit Manage My Partnershipon PartnerEdge.com now to be prepared for launch.

Provisioning Process Updates – New Customer Instance Access Request Process (CAR)
Starting September 26th there is an updated CAR process. Consultants are required to check the solution(s) in scope to be implemented on the CAR form. Associate Certification status is then validated by the Partner Services Delivery team with every CAR form submitted. Valid SuccessFactors Associate Certification within the solution(s) being implemented is required to receive access to a Customer’s instance. If Valid Certification is not found, the CAR form will be rejected.
Note: The RAR is no longer required. A provisioning account in the specified data center environment will be created for you in the processing of a Customer Instance Access Request.
