Set up a subaccount on the SAP Business Technology Platform

  2. Click Enter your Trial Account.

    Result: The subaccount overview opens.

  3. Click New Subaccount.

  4. Fill at least all mandatory fields. You can use your own configurations or the ones in the screenshots below.

    Result: All subaccounts are displayed with their entitlements. Your subaccount has no entitlements. The trial subaccount has many entitlements.

    Your SAP account has four memory units by default. All four units are assigned to the trial subaccount created by SAP. You must transfer the memory units to the subaccount that you created for Neptune DXP - Open Edition so that your subaccount can use the memory.

Transfer memory units to the trial subaccount

  1. Click Configure Entitlements to start the trial subaccount.

  2. In the Cloud Foundry Runtime row, click the trash bin icon to free up all four memory units.

  3. Click Save.
