SAP Business ByD – User Setup and First Glance

SAP Business ByDesign

SAP ByD User Setup

In this unit, we will be looking at user setup and first glance of the Studio.

We will go ahead and create a user, assign the proper rights and will see the overview of the Studio.
Before creating a user, we will discuss user roles.

User Roles:

In SAP Business ByDesign users are categorized in 3 roles

  1. Developer:
    1.1 Create and maintain all types of development objects in cloud application studio, (i.e., Developer can             be creating new business objects, user interfaces, forms, web services, whatever it might be.)
    1.2 Access work center views for analytics
  2. Studio administrator:
    2.1 Create new solutions in Cloud Application studio
    2.2 Delete solutions
    2.3 Create patch requests
  3. Business user:
    3.1 Used for testing within a development or test tenant
    3.2 Authorizations equal to a user on a customer tenant
    3.3 No authorization for studio access (no access to Partner Development work center!)

Most of the case Developer and studio administrator both are same person. In functional wise, Developer and studio administrator have an access to Partner Development work center in SAP Business ByDesign. But Business user does not have an access to Partner Development work center.

Note: In SAP Terms, Menus are called as Work Centers and Menu Items are called as Work center views.

First Look of Development Area:

  1. Logon SAP Cloud Application Studio with your newly created credential
  2. As discussed in Previous article, setup the user configurations
  3. My Solutions panel
    a. A “My Solutions” panel shows all of the solutions that are there in that specific tenant and this really means all solutions.
    b. So if I create a solution with my user, anybody else who logs into this tenant will also be able to see that solution and be able to develop in that solution.
    c. Double click the specific solution or create your own solution (Administrator can create new solution). And then you can see our kind of development area.
  4. Solution Explorer:
    a. Here you can see your business objects, scripts, details about web services and so on.
  5. Properties Window:
    a. This will show us the properties of file, when and who created it, when and who checked out last etc.
    b. We are also having Toolbar in Properties window. we are going to use a few things from the toolbar when it comes to debugging and lifecycle management.
  6.  Error List:
    a. this shows the errors or warnings in coding. It will notify in which file you have the error and even it will lead you to exact line number.
  7.  Repository Explorer:
    a. This shows information about standard content that is available in the Studio.
    b. It shows what are the business objects are available. If you click any one , you can get the detailed view and structure of BO. It shows extendibility view of UIs.
    c. You can access your Repository Explorer by view-> Repository Explorer in the SAP cloud application studio.
  8. Save and Active:
    a. Whatever you code in any script file, will not be reflected in your screens unless if you have saved and activated. You can find the save and activate icon in the menu or simply press Alt+A.SAP ByD User Setup
