Details

SAP’s IoT Services provide a robust and secure way of connecting your device as well as simplified way of specifying your data structures and changing those structures.

This procedure assumes you are using the trial account of the SAP Cloud Platform, but you can use a production account if you have one.


Step 1: Register for or log into SAP Cloud Platform trial

Go to the SAP Cloud Platform trial edition log in (or sign up if you don’t have an account yet).

Step 2: Enable IoT service

Once you log in, click on Services in the left-hand navigation bar, scroll down to find Internet of Things tile and click on it.

Services

Click on the Enable button. After a few seconds the page will update and show Enabled.

Enable Service
Step 3: Go to IoT Service Cockpit

Once the service is enabled click the Go to Service link and a new browser tab will open.

Access Service
Step 4: Deploy Message Management Service

With IoT service enabled, you can begin the steps necessary to configure your device’s digital twin and to enable message communication.

The first step will be to deploy and to configure the Message Management Service (MMS). Click on the Deploy Message Management Service tile.

Enter in your information in the fields, where your account ID is your p-number (or s-number if you are SAP’s customer or partner, or i-/d-number if you are SAP employee) with the world “trial” (no space between the p-number and trial) and your user name is just your p-number.

Deploy Service
Step 5: Go to IoT MMS application dashboard

Once successfully deployed then Java application iotmms is started in your account.

Return to the SAP Cloud Platform cockpit view and click on Java Applications in the left navigation bar. You will see the new iotmms application you just deployed. Click on the iotmms link to display the IoT MMS application cockpit.

Step 6: Assign IoT MMS user role

With the IoT MMS application cockpit displayed click on the Security > Roles in the left navigation bar.

Select the IoT-MMS-User (click the empty cell next to the Name to select the row if it is not highlighted in blue).

Authorizations

Then under Individual Users, click Assign and enter your SAP Cloud Platform user ID (e.g. your p-number without the word “trial” on the end).

Step 7: Restart the app
