Course announcements

  • This course builds on top of the SAP Commerce Backoffice Framework Fundamentals online training (HY460e) and leads into details of development of a Backoffice application on top of the platform. Participants learn how to work with the framework’s capabilities to build generic, extensible applications.
  • The course consists approximately of 50% lecture and 50% hands-on training. The hands-on part is delivered through a sample project, called the Book Management Cockpit. The participants will make a new Backoffice cockpit for a bookstore that has been prepopulated with test data. This cockpit will then be gradually developed and improved throughout the exercises by the students as they acquire the skills to do so.
  • The exercises lead the student through a sequence of tasks typical of real-world Backoffice customization project. Students will use components and features of the Backoffice Framework to build a new, custom Backoffice cockpit. They will leverage existing widgets, as well as create their own custom widget, field editor, and action component. They will configure their cockpit to lay these components out, interconnect them to trigger behaviours and share data, and configure the components’ UIs to customize the way their appearances.
  • Disclaimers:
    • This course is valid for both the on-premise and cloud version of SAP Commerce Cloud.
    • Only SAP customers and partners will have access to the SAP download center whereby they can install SAP Commerce software. All others have to use WTS.
    • If you are an SAP customer or partner, we recommend that you perform the installation and exercises locally on your own machine for the best training experience.
    • If you are not an official SAP partner or customer (NDA signed), you cannot access the SAP Commerce Help documentation or the SAP CX Wiki. This does not affect the duration of the course. Accessing the Hybris Wiki / Help are not a mandatory part of this course and therefore do not affect the educational value of the training.
