SAP CPS is available as a FREE OF CHARGE (FOC or OEM) version or a FULL ENTERPRIZE version

Customers can install a FOC license themselves after deploying CPS (See license section of wiki) by clicking on "Activate OEM license".

Check the Admin guide for more information on the differences between them.

Upgrading/patching SAP CPS

Installing SAP CPS for the first time, Upgrading, Patching or Updating all involve the same process. The same SCA file is downloaded from the SAP marketplace and deployed whether or not you are upgrading or installing new.

CPS version, milestone, build all refer to the M26.x, M28.x or M33.x number. (CPS Version 7.0 or Version 8 does not really tell us anything exact)

Note that SAP NetWaver 7.30 requires you to install an additional usage type to get SAP CPS deployed (SAP note #1668455 Installing SAP CPS 8.0 by Redwood on NW 7.30+)


Customers do not need to contact SAP/Redwood to use the FREE version - They can simply click on the "ACTIVATE OEM LICENSE" button (See screenshot below)

All V8 license requests for milestone M33.x and higher should be entered in an OSS message. Then SAP support forward the message to redwood and then redwood support are responsble for generating the license and sending to the customer.

Free version of CPS is also known as: OEM, FREE, FOC (Free of charge)

Full version of CPS is also known as: Enterprize version.
