Product Information

SAP Business Application Studio is Generally Available!

Three months ago, we announced the beta release of SAP Business Application Studio, and today we are happy to announce that SAP Business Application Studio  has recently been released to customers on Azure, AWS, Ali-Cloud.

 

SAP Business Application Studio is the next generation of the iconic 😉 SAP Web IDE. It aims to significantly improve the development experience by providing developers more control over their environment and code.

SAP Business Application Studio comes out of the box with predefined set of development environments – Dev-Spaces (virtual machine on the cloud where you can develop, build, test and run using pre-installed runtimes and tools) tailored for developing SAP business scenarios.

As the product evolves*, additional SAP scenarios and technologies will be added. The product will introduce a series of productivity tools that aim to improve the development efficiency and reduce the total cost of ownership. Some examples for the productivity tools: wizards, project templates, service consumption tool, deployment tool, graphical editors and more. The official roadmap will be released soon.

for additional product updates Follow the SAP Business Application Studio community page. 

Availability

SAP Business Application Studio is now generally available on SAP’s Multi-Cloud environment (Cloud Foundry) for productive use.

The SAP Business Application trial environment is planned to be available for test and evaluation in the upcoming weeks.

SAP Web IDE Full stack will continue to be available and supported. SAP Cloud Platform, Neo customers should continue using SAP Web IDE as their recommended development environment.

      • Hi Nir,

        Do you know the result of the evaluation? Will be the business applikation studio available for on premise? Do you know any release date for that?

        Thanks ans regards

        Christian

    • Correct me if I’m wrong (It’s hard to find concrete information on this). But since BAS utilizes much of the same components of VS.Code you can already to a lot of development in VS.Code. That’s what we did in the Business Intelligence Training last september. Actual local execution in the form of workstation based containers would then be very nice and promote multiple developers working on separate features (branching).

  • Hi,

    is this currently not available for partner accounts? I can’t find the subscription anywhere in our Cloud Foundry subaccount.

    Is it planned to release it to partner accounts in the future?

    Cheers,

    Dominik

  • FWIW, i think i caught an early glimpse when renewing one of my P accounts the other day, but that got mangled with authentication – my S account renews in 2 days, so there will be another chance. in any event not a big fan of VSCode, but ok with MIT license, i think.

  • I would really like to try this out, but management says they can’t find it in PartnerEdge. Will BAS eventually be available there and if yes, when?

    Thanks

  • Is it available now ?

    I see it in the service catalog but not in the lists of possible subscriptions, quotas and entitlements. I tried in CF Frankfurt and Amsterdam.

    Thanks.

  • Hi all,

    Is Application Studio’s ” Mobile Services App Development Tools” available on Ali-Cloud?

    I still cannot create “SAP Mobile Services Dev Space” (only “SAP Fiori Dev Space”) on Ali-Cloud landscape.

    Thanks and regards,

    Sindy

  • Hi there, probably not the best place to ask this, but I’ll try anyway.

     

    First of all the tool is amazing and integrates really well into my existing workflows!

     

    However, there is an issue I couldn’t overcome so far.

    When I want to clone a git repo e.g. from SAPs internal Github, it gives me
    .
    fatal: unable to access ‘https://github.wdf.sap.corp/<my repo url>/’: Received HTTP code 502 from proxy after CONNECT

    I would assume connecting to git repos should be supported out of the box, since all the tools are in place, or am I missing something?

    Thanks!
    Robin

    • Hi Robin,

       

      Great to hear your feedback, thanks for sharing.

      The reason for that is because you should configure the cloud connector to the internal git.

      If you would like a guide for that, feel free to send me an email.

       

      Thanks,

      Keren

      • Hi there,

        would be great if you can send me that info via mail (robin.reeb@sap.com).

        I also got the following info from another colleague:
        “which instance of the App Studio are you using? I just tried to clone a repo from the central canary landscape and this worked.
        I can confirm that it is not working out-of-the-box for trial and other public landscapes which is on purpose as there is no separation between SAP and non-SAP employees there 🙂.”

        I was using the trial landscape on AWS frankfurt, I guess that is the reason. I will try to check if it works with our internal SCP CF canary account in parallel to confirm this.

        Cheers,
        Robin

  • Hello Team,

     

    Just a very basic question!

    Is SAP Business Application Studio free to use in canary just for POC purpose? Or is there any cost involved for that too?

  • Hi,

    Is it possible to use Application Studio to develop node.js module which access tables in hdi containers but not using CDS? Our goal is to write custom node.js code to interact with HANA tables (also DocStores) and stored procedures, could you please provide an example? Thank you.

    Best wishes,

    Mike

    • Hi Mike,

      It should be possible but at the moment we don’t offer all the tools to support this flow.

      How complicated it’s going to be, depends on what you plan to implement. You can’t create an hdb module from a template (SAP HANA development is not yet supported), so if you do need to create it, you will need to define the module manually and possibly CLI tools to deploy it. If you only plan to read from HANA tables then it should be simpler. I’m afraid I don’t have at hand any example to share, but in general these are the steps you should follow:

      1. Create an MTA project. ( There’s a template for that)
      2. Create a node module for the application (manually) – create your node application in a new folder in your project, and update the mta.yaml accordingly.
      3. Implement the node application.You should also add the dependency to the hdi-container in the mta.yaml.
      4. Create a launch configuration for the node application to run and test it “locally”
      5. Build and deploy the application directly from the file explorer.

      Thanks,

  • Hi,

    Thanks for sharing this information. SAP Business Application studio is a great tool. However, I wonder now what to pick SAP Business Application Studio or SAP Cloud Application Rapid tool by Mendix for quick turn around of Fiori application and extension ?

     

    Regards

  • Hi Experts,

    I want to try the new tool. My Sales Rep told me to test it directly in the SCP.

     

    I can´t find the place where the Trial Button is available.

     

    Could you help me?

    Kind regards

    • Hi Adrien,

      Currently that is not on the roadmap.

      Business Application Studio is available in various data centers in AWS, Azure and Ali-Cloud. See the full list here

      Thanks,

      Keren

  • Hi,

    we want to use the new SAP Business Application Studio (on Cloud foundry) for development instead of SAP Web-IDE fullstack (on Neo) connected to an ABAP backend System (SAP Simple Finance on-prem running on HANA DB). The deployment should happen on this ABAP on-prem system (with embedded FES/Gateway – FLP running on this machine).

    Is it correct that the minimum system requirements for the ABAP back end system in order to use the new SAP Business Application Studio is SAP_UI 753 SP00 (or higher) and the ABAP Platform 1809 (ABAP 7.53)?

    Thanks and best regards

    • Hi Stephan Zeeh ,

      The target ABAP system for deployment must include the SAP_UI 753 SP00 or higher software component, available from SAP Fiori FES 5.0. See SAP Note 2217489. Additional details are available in SAP Business Application Studio documentation.

      For developing adaptation projects with SAP business Application Studio, pre-requisites are:

      • SAPUI5 version 1.71 or higher.
      • S/4 HANA on-premise ABAP systems with the minimum required version of software component being SAP_UI 7.53 SP00. Have in mind that, if you have SAP_UI 7.53 SP00 installed, you need to apply the SAP note 2615176, and implement the manual correction instructions to enable the system. If you are on SP01 or higher, no actions are needed.

      Additional details are available in SAP Business Application Studio documentation.

      Regards,

      Raz

      • Hi Raz Korn,

        thanks for the info – we have SAP_UI 7.53 SP02, which should be sufficient and the implementation of SNOTE 2615176 is not needed …

        Is it possible to have SAPUI5 version 1.71 with SAP_UI 7.53 SP..?
        I understood SAPUI5 version is maximum 1.60.x in this scenario.

        We have still an ERP on HANA DB (based on NW 7.50) instead of S/4HANA on-prem / ABAP 1809. Does this work as well?!

        Thnaks and best regards

        Stephan

    • Hi Allan Mauricio Garcia ,

      From trial perspective the two products are not related.

      SAP Web IDE is available on SAP Cloud Platform Neo trial, while BAS is available on SAP Cloud Platform Cloud Foundry trial.

      You should be aware that SAP Cloud Platform Neo trial will be retired on Nov 13th, 2020, including SAP Web IDE trial. Refer to the following blog for more info.

      Regards – Raz
