Prerequisite: Before on-boarding a new solution to SAP App Center, you must become an SAP Partner as described here, then submit your application for the Application Readiness Check (ARC). If you haven’t completed that step, submit your solution for ARC via the submission form here.
1
Once your ARC application has been submitted, you will receive an email from the SAP App Center support team giving you access to the Publishing Cockpit (for publishing your solution), the Partner Cockpit (for managing opportunity and deals) and allow your designated e-signer to sign the SAP App Center agreement. This will enable you to start the SAP App Center onboarding process in parallel.
In case you cannot find this email, you can request access by clicking here. This links to an email template – to be sent to the SAP App Center support team – that will prompt you to fill in specific details that will enable you to obtain access to the Publishing Cockpit and Partner Cockpit. You should expect to receive an email response from the SAP App Center support team within one business day.

After receiving your email response from the SAP App Center support team, you will be instructed to access the SAP App Center Publishing Cockpit, where you can create and update the content for all your listed applications on SAP App Center.
To do so, 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.
Now that you have access to the SAP App Center Publishing Cockpit, you can get started with creating a new publishing request.

On the home screen, click Create a New Solution.

After clicking Create a New Solution, you will enter the SAP App Center Solution Page Submission form. Please follow the instructions specific to each field.
  1. The form is comprised of 10 sections. The following are displayed publicly on your SAP App Center solution page: At a Glance, Customer Benefits, Features, Plans & Pricing, Resources & Support, Technical Info & Publisher. The remaining is information used in our back-end systems: SEO Description, Partner Contact Info, and Submission.
  2. As you enter your content, you’ll see guidance displayed inside of the form. For additional details, please refer to the Content Best Practices Guidelines located here.

In order to submit a publishing request, you are required to complete the minimum number of fields.

Once you have finished entering all of the required information, submit the form for approval by following the steps below. Note: Your solution must have passed the App Readiness Check before you can submit your content for review.
> Submission tab > Status > “Ready for Review”
> Have your solution been approved by ARC? > “Yes”
> Click “Submit” in the lower right corner.

You’ll receive an automated email notification letting you know that your content is in review with the SAP App Center team. Within one business day, our team will respond with feedback on your content or to let you know that your solution has been published.

In case further information is needed from you, you’ll see specific feedback from the SAP App Center team, which will appear next to each relevant field inside of the form.
After making the changes requested by the SAP App Center team, scroll to the submission section of the form, and then set the status to ‘ready for review.’

Once the SAP App Center team has determined that your listing meets SAP’s content-quality requirements, it will be approved and published on the marketplace. You will receive an email notifying you of approval and publication.
