Can the partner develop an application for productive usage within the SAP Developer Center trials or developer editions?
The partner can request access to a trial environment for 30 days free of charge or a developer edition environment hosted by a cloud provider. These environments are meant to help the partners to try the platform and its capabilities and to get experience in developing applications. Though technically possible, we do not encourage developing Intellectual Property within these environments, as this would not be protected. In addition, no platform support is provided. For commercial development, we recommend that the partner joins the SAP PartnerEdge program for Application Development which provides all required tools and regulations for managing the whole solution lifecycle and provides monetization support.
