You will learn
You will learn how to create your own YaaS project. This project will provide back-end support for a YaaS Storefront that you be creating in the next tutorial. The starting point is the Builder which is the back-office client of YaaS. The Builder’s main functionalities are the orchestration of YaaS Organizations, Projects and Packages, and the maintenance and management of some billing and sales data. You will also learn about the YaaS Market where you can subscribe to different packages of your choice.
SAP Hybris offers various YaaS functionalities grouped in to packages. Packages include a set of micro services and maintenance user interfaces called Builder modules. Each package has its distinct value proposition as well as a customer segment it addresses. Your YaaS Project can use these packages if it first subscribes to them. In order to support a YaaS storefront, your YaaS Project needs the functionality of 7 packages, so you need to subscribe to them now. Let’s go through an example of subscribing to one package (Cart, beta package). The complete list of required packages is provided below:
Select your project, from Projects on the Builder home page.
From Administration menu in the left navigation, go to Subscriptions.
Use the + Subscription button. You are then redirected to the YaaS Market.
Click on Beta Packages. Beta packages are available free of charge and are intended for testing purposes in non-productive environments. They provide the same functionality as standard packages, but the number of requests or API calls per month is limited.
Allow 10 seconds for processing and check in your project’s Administration section in the Builder if the package is displayed under Subscriptions. If the package is not displayed, reload your browser’s page.
Now that you have subscribed to these packages, your YaaS Project is now aware of them, but to be able to call the micro services in those packages, your YaaS Project needs to have a valid YaaS Client. Create a new YaaS Client and select all possible required Scopes (permissions) while doing so. Follow the steps below:
Select your project from Projects.
In the left navigation panel, go to Clients.
Use the + Client button.
Select all the scopes. Use the Next button to proceed to the Details section.
Complete the fields, such as in the example, and Save the form.
In this step, you created your own YaaS project and a YaaS client. You also learned how to subscribe to different packages on YaaS Market. The next step is downloading and running a default YaaS Storefront project which runs locally on your machine. You will browse through a storefront which is populated with products and services.
