      I tried to run the SAP Build Apps booster, and it wants me to have the SAP Launchpad standard (paid) plan. Is that how it is supposed to work?

      yes Daniel Wroblewski It requires SAP LaunchPad for Web apps but if its not enabled already in your subaccount.  Also you can click Delete button if its not required.

      But does that mean if i use that booster as is i will be charged according to the standard plan?

      Same happens in the ABAP Environment Free Bosster.

      It ends up automatically creating a Cloud Foundry Environment  in the standard plan without the possibillity to choose the free version.

      Is that ab bug? Do i get charged?

      While your slides and videos on TechEd22 are pretty easy to follow, subscribing to the needed Service Marketplace e.g. "SAP Build Process Automation" is not. So you provide wonderful content and motivate your customers to explore SAP Build, but then what? I've contacted my Customer Success Director for help.

      Here's the deal for paid customers. It's a license issue. When you're on the subscription model, it's not available automatically. Only in the "Pay as you go" model and Cloud Customer. So we switched to "Pay as you go" et voila. All the SAP Cloudness is available at your fingertips. There are some disadvantages, so speak to your sales rep or ask your doctor or pharmacist.

      Hello Yogananda,

      I don't have SAP Build and Launchpad available as entitlement to add. Instead I see SAP AppGyver only and I am getting error while launching booster because of missing SAP Build and SAP Launchpad entitlement.

      Can someone help

       

      Thanks

      I don't have SAP Build and Launchpad available as entitlement to add, instead I see greyed out SAP AppGyver only.

      The issue is when I am launching booster, I am getting missing entitlement error at the pre-requiste step

      Can you please help

      Thanks

      What system are you using? A trial account? An individual PAYG account? Company account?

      Hi Daniel, I am using company account and I was able to fix the issue. Now I am running into different issue. I am getting subsription error while creating instance of "Cloud Identity Services" and this a pre-requiste to finish the SAP Build booster.

      Sorry, but Cloud Identity Services is not my expertise. Error messages can be very opaque, and perhaps it could be your permissions, the entitlements of the global/subaccount, available quota or something like that. Of course, it is a company account and I assume there is support, so you could just open a ticket.

      Same thing here only to found out that there is no free-tier offering for CIS.  So basically the "free tier" SAP Build Apps booster has a prerequisite that requires a paid plan so not useful in its current state.

      Yes, at first this seems a problem, but the service on a single tenant with limited use is free.

      See this blog and also the Gregor Wolf answer to my similar question in this SAP Build Apps blog.

      Good luck.

      Hello Daniel,

       

      That blog filled the gap, it had some directions within a help.sap page which gave guidance on how to manually create an instance of the CIS service within the BTP free tier.  Interesting that the booster didn't have that activity as part of its automated steps.  Thanks!
