Creating a Technical User for Cloud Platform Integration

Purpose of a technical user: Many times, you have several people working in the integration work space, but not all have an individual S-user assigned to them. Also sometimes, during an error, we need several parties to look at the problem and it is immensely cumbersome to assign access to each user on a need basis. There are cases, where you had to share your user password due to time constraints.

All the above problems can be addressed with the help of a technical user. A technical user is a generic user who you can assign the required roles and share with all the intended parties.

Steps to create a technical user:

A technical user is an SAP P-user that can be created as follows:

  1. Go to in an incognito mode so you do not get logged in automatically. Click on Log On. Choose Register in the pop-up window:
  2. Enter all the required information on the register screen. The activation link shall be sent to the email address provided by you on this screen, so enter a valid email address:
  3. You will receive the following email for activating the new user:
  4. Click on the activation link – once activated, your registration is complete. You shall be directed to the following page:
  5. Click on Go to Account Settings to get your user details:
  6. Now go to your SAP Cloud Platform Accounts cockpit, choose the sub-account of your Cloud Platform Integration tenant and click on Members:
  7. Add the P-user that you picked in step 5, assign all the required roles and add a relevant description for future reference:
  8. The user is successfully added to your Cloud Platform’s sub-account:
  9. Go to Security –> Authorizations –> Users. Enter the P-user you just added and click on Assign. Now choose all the roles you want to assign to this technical user:
  10. The technical user is ready to use.
