I am happy to let you know that “SAP Cloud Platform, Kyma runtime” is finally part of the SAP Cloud Platform trial. It is available for some days now and we already saw a number of people who started exploring. Nevertheless, let me start from the beginning.
When you want to start your trial of Kyma runtime, open-up your SAP Cloud Platform trial account and create a sub-account in any region. Can you see the
Enable Kymabutton? Great, then just click on it.
If your trial account already pre-existed, then you need to entitle Kyma to it:
- Open the
Configure Entitlements, then
Add Service Plans
- Search for
Kyma, select the
Add 1 Service Plan
- When you now go back to the
Overviewof your subaccount, you are able to
Enable Kyma. This will take 1-2 hours.
After this has finished, you need to add your user to a dedicated role. To do so, follow these steps:
- Open the
- Add a new one via
+and by proving a name
- Open the Role collection,
Editit, and assign the role “
- Go back to the subaccount and open the
- Select the
Show assignmentsto your trial user’s email address, and
Assign Role Collectionyou just created
Now you can access the Kyma console UI via the link in the subaccount’s Overview. Here is the documentation for the steps.
Connecting your SAP application to Kyma runtime or mocking an application
One part of the Kyma-story is enabling you to extend SAP applications cloud-natively. Therefore, you can now connect your test tenants of SAP CX solutions to the trial Global Account and create a formation with your Kyma runtime. Have a look into our documentation how to do that.
If you don’t want to connect an SAP CX application to the trial account, you can simply mock an SAP application to being connected to Kyma runtime.
