MAJOR UPDATE September 2020: The entire video tutorial series has been revised and brought up to date. It now includes an example of “schema separation” and several other topics that were not in the original series such as dependencies for reuse services, creating routes during subscription via the CF API, and using a custom domain. Click here to watch the new series.
As a partner or application provider, you can develop and run multitenant business applications in SAP Cloud Platform and share them with multiple consumers (or tenants) simultaneously. Each consumer accesses the application through a dedicated URL that identifies their tenant. This allows you to separate data securely for each tenant whilst optimizing resources by sharing them across tenants. It also allows you to update applications for all tenants efficiently in a single step.
You can find out more in the following blogs:
- Multitenancy Architecture on SAP Cloud Platform, Cloud Foundry environment
- Using SaaS Provisioning Service to develop Multitenant application on SAP Cloud Platform, Cloud Foundry Environment
But have you tried this approach “hands-on” and did you know it’s available to test using the free trial?
We’ve just published a new tutorial series covering Multitenant Business Applications in SAP Cloud Platform which you can access here: Multitenant Business Applications in SAP Cloud Platform Playlist
Tutorials cover all aspects of creating and managing multitenant business applications in SAP Cloud Platform including developing, deploying and registering multitenant business applications, consumer/tenant on-boarding and off-boarding, the RESTful API, the Command Line Interface (CLI), database persistence, as well as uninstallation.
So whether you’ve already got access and want to get going or you’re simply interested in seeing exactly how to get started these videos will be of use.
You can access the tutorials directly as follows:

Kudos and special thanks to Sandeep who helped us out enormously in getting up to speed on this topic!
If you’re new to SAP Cloud Platform itself then you might also want to check out our onboarding video tutorial series which should hopefully get you up to speed pretty quickly.
