Thanks for blog … this is a little confusing:
1) You misspelled trial in title
2) There are “trial” accounts that don’t require credit card to get, and then there are global accounts you need a credit card. Within this account you can get free-tier service plans.
It gets more complicated but the point is “trial” generally means one thing and “free tier” another. This is my understanding.
Hi Daniel Wroblewski
Perfect!! I will test it out 😀
Thank you very much for all the info but I still can not see Process Automation in my trial account.
Are you sure that is available in trial account?
Hi M jerte
Just go to your BTP Trail Account - Entity Assignment - Select - Trail and check Process Automation is enabled or not .. If its enabled, you are good to start with above process from my blog.
I am also not seeing Process Automation in my trial account.
I followed your instructions but I only see SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation Trial as a selection if I search 'process automation' from the Entity Assignments in my trial account.
You need to click "Add Service Plan" and then select the service as shown below:
Thank you. That was the step that I missed. I'm good now.
I followed the above steps, assigned the 3 roles to my user account as per the above snapshot. However, when I launch the application , the landing page says 'Access is denied'.
P.S: I have signed out /signed in multiple times for the changes to take effect.
Can you help.
Did you assign the roles to the your user and if you have assigned.. Open it through Incoginitio browser and let me know.
Great!! Its working now.
What was the difference between, launching, SAP PA in normal browser or incognito browser?
Should we always, go for incognito browser.
Happy it worked now !!
Maybe it cached the cookies. you can clear the cookies and try it now normal browser later.
Kindly share this blog to your friends and colleagues to try it out Process Automation
I had to close the web browser (which was in incognito mode already) and then reopen it to get rid of the 'Access is denied' show stopper.
Clear now about the cookies now . Thank you.
Shared the blog via Linked in post.
Thank you !!
Hi Yogananda Muthaiah
I am not able to create instances in SAP Process Automation while using trial account.Is it because i am missing something or is it not possible in trial.
Thanks & Regards,
Hi Yogananda Muthaiah
Is it possible to create a tile for sap process automation in launchpad service while accessing free trial?
Part of creating a tile for sap process automation is also creating a new instance of sap process automation but this problem comes up when trying to create new instance.
not possible in free Trail .. Free trail account is only to understand the feature of Process Automation.
I have subscribed to the SAP Build Process Automation 'Free' Plan.
But if I go to the store and try to ADD a Ready to Use 'Live Process'... I get the following error message
''Error creating service "sap_processautomation" from offering "process-automation-service" and plan "standard": Service plan standard not found.''
Does that mean that adding Live Processes from the store is only allowed for the 'Standard' plan and not for the 'Free' plan.
Could you please confirm
Thank you for the great blog. Very useful for the beginners!
One thing confusing me is after I assign the role, my access is denied.
Do you know why?
This is very helpful, thanks!
