    Hi Adarsh

    Kindly follow the process steps:

    1. Delete the unused user id's in your development & production systems.(Before deleting the user id take the concurrence from user security or user dept)

    2. Define the all the user id license type as per the SAP contract.

    3. After completion of point number 1 & 2 measure the System as mention in the SAP help portal link .

    Hello Adarsh,

    For user measurement, you need to perform using tcode USMM.

    istead of checking each and every user.

    in USMM you can execute usr classification,which will give you all the user id and there license type

    Once you execute you will get result

    Cross whether users are classified according license contract.

    If the user are not classified,assign license type in every user id then run user classification.

    once all users are classified run system measurement in USMM.

    If system has SAP_OSS maintained correctly then you can send this report from the option

    "Sent to SAP" in USMM itself.

    Regards

    Hi All,

    Thanks for your suggestions but i have one particular question.Our company has bought 70 application user licenses and one developer license and we have three systems in our company ie..DEV, TEST and PRD systems. Should i individually measure the liceneses in all the 3 systems or should i run it only in PRD system and send the results to SAP.

    Regards,

    Adarsh

      Adarsh,

      Application user licenses are measured in PRD systems, as the end product developed(DEVELOPMENT system),tested(Quality system) is moved to PRD and End users will login in PRD to work on them(or use them).

      SAP will verify whether you have created 70 Application users or more than that through Measurement report.

      For Developer User information.

      SAP will ask you to provide system measurement report from DEV system.

      Because any development or change to SAP objects are performed mostly in DEV system.

      If multiple user ids used for changing SAP objects through developer keys(already registered as developers in SAP market place---Service.sap.com/sscr) in that case those users who are involved in changing the objects with developer keys will be treated are developers.


      In your case you should be using single user for Changing the SAP objects.

      Regards

    Hi Adarsh,

    You need to understand the process as specified below, depending on your system.

    Prerequisites for Using LAW - SAP Licenses - SAP Library

    License Administration Workbench - SAP Library

    That should cover all your queries.

    Hi,

    Our company has bought 70 application user licenses and one developer license and we have three systems in our company ie..DEV, TEST and PRD systems.

    If SAP Global license audit team requires report for all systems under your landscape,then you've to generate report for individual system.

    As per standards SAP developer exists only at DEV system in your system & rest users are classified as TEST users,similarly for QTY .

    In case of PROD system you need to classify users according to the licenses which you've as per user license contract .

    should i run it only in PRD system and send the results to SAP.

    Need to perform on individual as desired by SAP Global license Auditing.
