Below are the steps to activate a Business Application Studio service in an Enterprise BTP Subaccount.

  1. Navigate to the BTP Cockpit and login with your user account.
  1. Subaccounts are visible on the Account Explorer as shown in step 1. Click on the Subaccount you want to create the BAS service in.
  1. Navigate to the ‘Entitlements’ on the navigation ribbon on the left.
  1.  All the entitlements of the BTP subaccount are visible. By Default, many services are listed as entitlements. Press the Edit button to add the services.
  1. Add service plan using the ‘Add Service Plans’ Button.
  1. Search for the ‘Business Application Studio’ to find the service as shown below. Adding a service as entitlement doesn’t mean the service is on. This step only means the users will be allowed to turn the service on and this step is a prerequisite to assign the BAS role privileges to the user. Don’t forget to ‘Save’ after adding the service.
  1. The added services are visible in the entitlements list.
  1.  Navigate to the Services->Service Marketplace on the Navigation pane. One can find the newly added BAS Service in the application development and automation section.
  1. Create a new instance of SAP Business Application Studio as shown below.
  1.  Select the Service and the Subscription plan and create the instance.
  1.  SAP Business application studio subscription is created as shown below.
  1. Once the service is subscribed to, we should proceed to give the required role authorizations to the users. Navigate to the Security->Users on the navigation panel. Using the Assign Role Collection option we can navigate to Role assignment.
  1. Assign role collection as shown below and assign the roles depending on the requirement. If the user needs access only to the BAS please make sure that no ‘Administrator’ related roles slip through.
  1. It can take 2-6 hours to complete the provision. You can launch the application.
