SAP for Me

What is SAP for Me?

SAP is making strides to simplify and harmonize the support experience by reducing the number of digital touchpoints. SAP for Me is the digital platform that enables our customers and partners to find the information they need, and use a variety of self-service features to easily request support and resolve issues. SAP for Me is free, and uses your existing SAP ID.

With SAP for Me, you can:

  • Engage with support from SAP through a single entry point
  • Get a holistic view of your licenses, orders, and consumption status.
  • Perform self-services (e.g. cloud system provisioning)
  • Additional features will continue to be integrated
Learn about managing your SAP for Me access in the SAP Help Portal

Creating Support Cases

Following the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) standard, SAP has changed the terminology for getting technical support from "Incident" to "Case" in SAP for Me. Cases identify a question or issue and tracks the activities related to resolving it. Cases are different from service requests, which are standardized requests from end users for specific functions (e.g. additional service capacity, additional backup) using a predefined service catalog.

You can create a support case through several methods:

  1. On the home page, select the three dots in the top right corner of a card > Contact Us > Written Case.
  2. On any page, select the Feedback tab on the right side of the screen > Contact Us
  3. Select the Services & Support dashboard on the left side of the screen > Report a Case

Managing Support Cases

You can monitor your support cases with the Cases card from the home page, or navigate directly to the Services & Support dashboard to access the full range of support tools, such as Expert Chat, Schedule an Expert, Ask an Expert Peer, SAP Notes and Knowledge Base Articles, SAP Early Watch Alerts, and many more capabilities.
