Before you start, you need to prepare the environment. This consists of two phases:
Phase 1: Tenant Pairing (in blue)
You link the SAP S/4HANA Cloud tenant with the SAP Cloud Platform subaccount using single sign-on (SSO). In this way the extension applications that are going to be deployed on SAP Cloud Platform subaccount will use the same user base as those in the SAP S/4HANA Cloud tenant. See SAP Cloud Platform Extension Onboarding.
Phase 2: Connectivity (in green)
To set up the extension application, you have to configure the connectivity from the SAP Cloud Platform subaccount to the SAP S/4HANA Cloud tenant. See Extension Application Configuration.
You can choose one of the following authentication methods:
- Client Certificate
- SAML Bearer Assertion
You can also find all the specific settings you need to use SAP Web IDE to develop your extension application. See Configuring SAP Web IDE.
