Respond to Due Diligence Questionnaire
Shortly after you submit your App Readiness Check, you’ll receive an email from partnerdd@sap.com with the first questionnaire to complete partner due diligence, if you have never published a solution before. You may receive subsequent questionnaires. Check the status at any time by visiting the Manage My Partnership tool. You’ll receive an email confirmation once due diligence is complete. For any questions on this process, please email partnerdd@sap.com

Review the SAP App Center Welcome Email
Within one business day of submitting your App Readiness Check, you’ll receive a Welcome email from SAP App Center that guides you through next steps to publishing on SAP App Center. The user who submitted the App Readiness Check will be provided access to two systems:
  1. SAP App Center Partner cockpit so you can sign the SAP App Center participation agreement and access opportunities, analytics and book deals.
  2. SAP App Center Publishing Cockpit so you can upload content for your new solutions.
If you have not yet received this email, please contact support_appcenter@sap.com

Sign the SAP App Center Participation Agreement
The user who submitted the App Readiness Check will have access to sign the SAP App Center Participation Agreement. If you’d like to add additional users click here to send an email to our support at support_appcenter@sap.com
Logon to the SAP App Center partner cockpit here with your S-User ID.
A couple of tips:

Begin Creating Your Solution Page
To access the SAP App Center Publishing Cockpit, you must use the same email you used in the App Readiness Check and the password used must be the one associated with your Microsoft account. If you’d like for someone else to also be provided access to SAP App Center Publishing Cockpit, please email support_appcenter@sap.com.
To logon to the Publishing Cockpit, click here, then a window like the one below will appear. Log in using the same email address used for providing access to SAP App Center.
  • If you have a Microsoft account or your workplace uses Office 365, use the password or SSO logon credentials associated with that account. Note: if you attempt to log in with your email address and receive an error message that says “account not found,” then you do not have a Microsoft account, and you will need to create one.
  • If you do not have a Microsoft account, please create one using the same email address that we’ve provided access to the above. Click here to do so.
  • Click here to view a troubleshooting guide on obtaining access to the SAP App Center Publishing Cockpit.
