SAP Gateway for Consumer Access

2071 Views Last edit Feb 10, 2017 at 04:36 PM 4 rev

Hi All,

We have a SAP Gateway licensing question we think @martin.bachmann or @andre.fischer might help!

The scenario is using SAP Gateway for Consumer Access (packages of 75,000 calls / year) for external portals that access SAP data through SAP Gateway, where we don't need SAP named users (anonymous access).

Just to confirm, is it ok to use this license type, regardless of whether the actual users are direct employees of the company, suppliers, customers or partners?

We understand that as long as there are no named users in Gateway/ECC system, SAP Gateway for Consumer Access is ok.

We are referring to a couple of typical cases, for example:

- An HCP Portal that reads online, anonymous data from SAP.

- Regularizing the situation of any external system making "indirect use" of SAP by calling funcions with a single, unlicensed communication user.

Thanks a lot,

Andres Nebel
