  • Hi Christine Angela Virjee,

    thank you for the description of this helpful feature. What is not really clear to me is if the 3rd party content is for try-out and review before you purchase it, or if it is already purchased when you import it? If so, how can already imported packages be removed again?

    Thank you and best regards,


    • Hello Alexander,

      thank you for reaching out: Quite similar to the content provided by SAP, the 3rd party content also comes free-of-charge. You do not have to purchase it, simply accept the terms and conditions set by the partner.

      Our partners see this as an opportunity to show-case their deep understanding of both business scenarios and SAC technology. If a specific packages is appealing for you, you may want to reach out to the company providing it to bring them in for your implementation or for additional content packages that they may offer.

      Hope this answers the question,

      Best regards,

  • Hi Christine Virjee

    I appreciate the explanation in this section of the tool. However I have a question... How can a company (SAP Partner) publish its own content in this section? Are there requirements that need to be met or is there some specific procedure?

    Thank you and a greeting


    • Hello Julian,
