      Hi Paulo,

      Provided destination (URL=https\:// points to a proxy serving shared sandbox system, developed and operated just for the period of the course.

      We encourage you to use SAP API Business Hub ( as an experimental environment or engage with one of our Partner programs in order to receive own system tenant.

      Same exercise could be achieved connecting directly to the SuccessFactors tenant.

      Kind regards,
