Uploading The ZDEVELOPER Role To Your Developer Edition, 751
Update: 18th April, 2018: I updated the link to One Drive. – See below. Please tell me if there are any problems.
If you previously worked with AS ABAP 750, developer edition, you may have noticed that the Start menu in 751 looks a bit different: The ZDEVELOPER role is missing:
This role is not essential – you can still develop happily without it, but it is a convenient way to access the preconfigured Fiori app, EPM applications etc.
So, to upload this role to your own download edition, download the role and instructions from One Drive:
One Drive: ZDEVELOPER Role and Instructions
Unzip this folder and follow the instructions therein! If you have any problems with the zip, please let me know.
NOTE: This is entirely own risk. We cannot provide any guidance or support for any issues that may arise from this upload. Also, this is an issue specific to 751, download, developer edition. We cannot recommend uploading this role to any other ABAP system.
That said, I have just tested the procedure myself this week, with no problems so far, so I hope you benefit from this.
I tried to acces SAP Download center with S-user but I got the message that no shared folder is available. Do I need special permissions?
Sorry, we had an issue with SAP Doc Center - can you please try the 2 new links above?
We've tested it, but only internally.
Thanks a lot. Both links are working well.
I followed the documentation and it works fine!
I tried to access both of these links and access was refused (clicking "Login" on the left side results in 403).
Should i have S-User status to do this, or maybe the problem reoccured?
Same issue as above, both links are inactive or perhaps the share has expired. Please re-activate or send. pls.
Hi Cezary, Sidwell, all,
It should be unrestricted However, SAP Docs is now deprecated.
Tomorrow, I will upload it to Sharepoint, unrestricted, and update this blog
Best wishes Julie
OK, updated to One Drive:
I apologize: The link was set to allow only specific user access. I have now updated it:
I am sorry for the inconvenience caused.
Best wishes Julie.
I think the link might be dead again?
Hi all, Apologies. Currently I cannot edit the blog. Nor can I share the file from SharePoint (?). I will let you all asap.
ZDEVELOPER role on Sharepoint
Best wishes Julie.
the download link has expired unfortunately.
Could you renew it by chance?
Thanks a lot in advance!!
I am sorry but we are no longer allowed to post files on MS Sharepoint.
Also, provided there are no hitches, we may possibly retire 7.51 (dev. edition, not the full version) in a few months - this is not finalized. Latest version is 7.52, SP04, more info here: https://blogs.sap.com/2019/07/01/as-abap-752-sp04-developer-edition-to-download/
You could use 7.51 without the ZDEVELOPER role, by simply marking your own Favorites in the SAP GUI home screen – or you can create the role in PFCG.
I woudl recommend an upgrade to 7.52 SP04.
