      Hello Suresh Kumar,

      thank you for this very interesting blog. So for my understanding: this is full blown CPI environment that I can "play around" on. Is that correct?

      It will be a while before my employer will make CPI available, so this would be a great opportunity for me to learn about it.

      Best regards, Peter

      Hey Suresh,

      Very informative blog. It has helped me to create my own CPI test tenant.

      I am a little worried about the 29 day limit on the Cloud Foundry trial. If I start developing integrations in the CPI trial, what will happen to them after 29 days?

      Thanks

      Thanks Suresh.

       

      The Cloud Foundry registration steps seem to have changed. Also, the process for adding Role/User is showing different options.

      It would be great if you could validate the steps again. Thanks.

      Hello,

      If you have S id then kindly raise an incident you will get an response under valid SLA response time.

      If you don't have S id and using an P id then drop mail on sso@sap.com with your account details (mail and id) and screen shot or error, login url and steps followed.

      Hope this helps.

      Hello,

      I followed the steps however I got an error rather SAP CPI url

      1] Below are the steps to Configure the Trust Configuration:

      1. After Assigning the Roles, you can see the assigned roles as below screenshot
      2. Finally, to get the CPI URL

      Go to Subscriptions, Select the Process Integration and Click on Go to Application.

      1. After clicking on “Go to Application” in Process Integration, you can see the below screenshot and provide the registered Email and Password.

      Also, Please find snip of the Roles and Trust Configuration.

      And I don’t see SAP ID , sap.default is reflected by default. 

      Subaccount – I am using the default US (AWS) one. I had no option to select Europe during first time login. 

       

      Update 12th June - Along with posting it here, I mailed to sso@sap.com with all the details twice.

      Not sure, what happened over-night but on doing an browser refresh in morning. I had the option of tenant provisioning. (Yes, I am guilty of putting laptop in sleep mode 🙂 to resume everything in morning )

      Also, Came across this blog which talks about this error is related to authorization.

      Hi,

      Even I used Integration Suite, But It is showing 20 minutes time to install Provisioning capabilities. I waited for 90 Minutes, still there is no progress in the installation. Do you have any idea what could be the reason.

       

      Regards,
