What’s New in SAP Build Apps – October 2023

Greetings, Builders! We are pleased to bring you the latest feature releases for SAP Build Apps.

Release highlights:

  • iOS Builds
  • Free trial offering
  • Updated onboarding videos and wizard
  • S/4HANA Learning Journey and contest
  • OpenSAP course on BTP and AWS

iOS Builds

Building native iOS applications for App Store release or local testing is now available in SAP Build Apps. Access the build service from the ‘Launch’ tab to complete the process, which involves uploading necessary assets and getting your packaged application.

For instructions on configuring the build and distributing your app, see the iOS Builds documentation.

SAP Build Apps available on BTP Trial Account

SAP Build Apps is now available to try out for free with an SAP BTP Trial Account. Similar to the SAP BTP Free Tier, the Trial Account allows you to experience and evaluate all key features of the low-code application development tool free of charge.

To learn more and get started, see this blog.

Updated onboarding videos and wizard

If you’re new to SAP Build Apps or want to get more familiar with a feature, the onboarding wizard is the perfect place to start. The in-product videos provide a gamified tour and explanation of essential features while tracking your progress.

We’ve recently added all new onboarding videos to the wizard with updated UI and the ability to display subtitles and transcripts (in English). The wizard also now has a scalable picture-in-picture mode, so you can watch a video while you’re working.

📚 SAP S/4HANA learning journey and contest

Check out the new learning journey: Extending SAP S/4HANA with SAP Build Apps and Key User Extensibility. In four hours, you’ll discover how to extend your SAP S/4HANA Cloud system while maintaining a clean core with minimal coding.

But wait, there’s more! Now through December, you can also get rewarded for learning these new skills with our contest for SAP Builders. To see how you can participate and win a limited-edition SAP Builder hoodie, see the contest details.

📚AWS + BTP OpenSAP Course

Join the upcoming OpenSAP course: Build Resilient Applications on SAP BTP with Amazon Web Services. Learn about the strategic partnership between SAP and Amazon Web Services (AWS) and explore SAP BTP to build applications, extensions, and integration scenarios in the cloud.

Course dates: October 31, 2023 – December 13, 2023

As always, we look forward to hearing your thoughts and experiences with the new features. You can reach out to our team in the community for help with getting started.

      Hello Esmee Xavier ,

      Happy to see the iOS Build. Now the big thing waiting for is BTP Authentication on native mobile application 😊


      By the way, could you please check the What's New for Build Apps link you provided? For some reason, the October 2023 updates are NOT visible there, even after modifying the valid of dates!


      Thank you,

      Venkat Vyza
