Adding Sample Data

Objective

After completing this lesson, you will be able to Add sample data.

Add Sample Data

Business Scenario

Your company is planning to develop a set of cloud-based applications based on the SAP Cloud Application Programming Model (CAP), and these applications will be deployed to SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) as extension applications for the SAP Core Back-end Systems.

In this exercise, you will perform the following task: Add sample data to entities.

Once the structure of your application is finished, you can add sample data to the application. You either can use the visual data editor, or insert data using a CSV file.

Note

Note that some of the services that this learning journey links to, can incur costs.

If you are concerned about charges, you can opt to skip the corresponding exercises and watch the simulation instead.

Exercise Options

You can perform this exercise in two ways:

  1. Live Environment / Practice System: you can perform the steps provided below, either in your SAP BTP account or you use the "Practice System Access" provided below.
  2. Simulation: follow the step-by-step instructions within the simulation.

Note

You can try out this exercise in the practice system below. Open the system by choosing the button at the end of this page.

Note that the practice system access only covers access to the SAP Business Application Studio. When deploying to an SAP BTP runtime or consuming other SAP BTP services, you have to use an SAP BTP Trial Account, Free-Tier, or an Enterprise Account.

Note

We recommend performing the steps in the live environment first.
