SAP Web IDE Trial Update

On November 13, 2020 the SAP Cloud Platform, Neo trial environment will be discontinued and as a result SAP Web IDE Full-Stack trial will also be discontinued.

If you have an existing Neo trial account, you can continue using it including SAP Web IDE Full-Stack until November 13, 2020. This can be done by opening the SAP Cloud Platform trial home page, scrolling down to the Environments section, and choosing “Access Neo Trial” Link.  Then, under Services choose SAP Web IDE Full-Stack.

Before November 13, you must choose one of the following options:

  1. Start using the SAP Business Application Studio trial as it is the next generation of SAP Web IDE Full-Stack. It offers a modern desktop-like experience in the cloud including new tools, capabilities, and much more. To learn more, we have created a central blog with links to useful information, supported scenarios, migration guides and hands-on tutorials.
  2. Purchase a license to SAP Web IDE Full-Stack, see the SAP Store or the Discovery Center.
  3. For SAP HANA native development, the tools available in SAP Web IDE Full-Stack are not yet available in SAP Business Application Studio. To learn how to develop using SAP Business Application Studio, see this video. If you still want to use those tools, you can use SAP Web IDE for SAP HANA development which is available on the SAP Cloud Platform multi-cloud trial environment. This temporary solution will be available until SAP HANA development tools are supported in SAP Business Application Studio. To access this solution see tutorial , for usage see video.

For more information on the SAP Cloud Platform strategy, take a look at this blog , or the FAQ.

Note this blog is about discontinuing SAP Web IDE Full-Stack Trial. SAP Web IDE Full-Stack licensed customers can continue using SAP Web IDE Full-Stack, it is available and supported.

  • Dear Keren,

    thanks for the information. Since the SAP Business Application Studio Trial is hosted on CF trial environment, one important difference is that the trial accounts will expire after some time and extensions, and all projects will be gone. Therefore, it is good for instance to push the project to some Git repo. This was not the case for the NEO.

  • hello karen,

    just to confirm … \

    i currently use web ide full stack to help me develop UI5 apps.

    as far as i know, i do not do the neo trial thing – just develop UI5 apps.

    when the neo trial ends, will i be able to continue to use web ide full stack to develop UI5 apps? if not, what are my options (going back to Eclipse? using web ide personal edition?)

    cheers, Pas

    • Hi pas longo ,

      In order to use SAP Web IDE productively, a license is required. The license grants access to the Factory landscape, which is different than the trial landscape. While this blog discusses the discontinuation of the trial landscape, the Factory landscape is available, maintained, and supported.

  • Thanks for the blog on this. Got the email but this is much better and clearer.

    However, SAP Business Application Studio is in no way a good replacement for the Web IDE. It’s a huge hassle to even set it up and that has to be repeated every 30-90 days, because the account is wiped. I’d rather have the simple Web IDE on CF as is (with just a link to bookmark, no other steps) and then getting wiped (because that’s fine, I can use Git as previously commented) but BAS requires tons of steps to even start using it. I cannot understand this decision and is a huge loss for anyone wanting to try out Fiori, UI5, wanting to do tutorials etc. Speaking of tutorials, they all still speak of Web IDE. There has to be a simpler way than this?

    • Seems to me that the git way is a good way to start.

      In the beginning, WebID was also unstable and had multiple issues and many of them were solved throughout the lifetime of the product, however, some subsided until EOL. Like any product, it takes time to mature.

      I hope SAP revises their strategy around SAP BAS and starts offering this as a tool that better speaks to other parts of SCP and that caters to the developer mainly.

      My personal opinion is that the primary focus of a dev tool is to help the developer and to accelerate their work. If more roadblocks are added than fast lanes people will continue to see a problem to fully embrace UI5.

      There are other tools in the market that make a much better job at helping developers regardless of their experience in UI5 to use UI5, and these are not just tools but toolsets that really helps developers, sap customers, and partners to get the most out of their workforce and their systems ( again personal experience ).

      Maybe people should take a deep breath and look around, grass can also be green(er) outside the lawns of Waldorf.

    • Dear Meli,


      I am afraid, I fully agree with you! Not only the the additional work for trial account users to store the projects, which can be achieved either by saving the whole dev-space and re-importing it, or using Git, but also that, let’s say, 99% of the resources/training material currently available is using WEB IDE. Especially for new-comers, learning SAPUI5 might be rendered a little more difficult in this “transitional phase”. Not everybody will take a company account, directly from the beginning.



  • Hi Keren Rotenberg,

    Thanks for heads up!!

    Will there be any option to migrate all our projects from “Web IDE Full stack trail Neo” to “Business Application Studio”???

    Also looks like trail version for SAP Cloud foundry lasts for 90days only..Post that subaccount will be my understanding correct???



  • Hi karen,

    when I open sap web ide on cf trial . there is not in it a way to import design from build plateform!

    but in neo trial it’s steel used

    do you now why.

    thank you for replay!


  • Hi, I am also afraid if remove SAP WEB IDE Full stack. Because I am currently using it only for Build project purpose for my company UI5 projects. OR can I use my company S user account instead of my personal account? please advise. thanks. –Swami

    • One should for company and productively used projects, use the company grade version of SCP and subscribe for WEB IDE users for instance. It is roughly 50 bucks… and you get 5 licences.

  • This is a very anti-developer community news. Neo environment being discontinued should have made CF environment to have timeless access on trial as was with Neo. How will this strategy support and encourage developer community?




  • Hi,

    It seems to  me  that this is not a  good  news.There  are several SAPUI5 training that have  been prepared  using Web IDE and Neo  Enviroment. All the instructions to connect  to  the  system and start develop are preapared using Web IDE. Also the  documentation. So it will be  very difficult for people  to follow these  courses. How can you  manage this issue? The training  documentation  will be updated ?

    Thanks and regards,


    • Hi Davide Grosso ,

      Please note that only the trial environment is discontinued. Licensed customers can continue using SAP Web IDE Full-Stack. It is available and supported. Therefore, also trainings that use productive accounts can continue to take place.

      Trainings that rely on the availability of trial accounts are being migrated to use SAP Business Application Studio.

      Regards – Raz

      • Hi Raz,

        thanks for your feedback, but do you mean that the documentation of the existing  training will be  updated or that SAP will deliver some new training  that  replace  the  old  ones?(I  see  that SAP Business Studio  is completely different from WEB IDE).

        Anyway, do you know the timing of this  training migration ?

        Me and my colleagues are  following  this courses and  this “change” is creating some  confusion.

        thanks in advance
