    Hello Keerti,

    this report is used to mass-maintain the license assignment of users via roles. Instead of assigning the category for each user you can also use the roles to determine the license.

    The license assigment is used to determine the amount of users assigned to a licensed category during license audit.

    Regards,

    Frank

    Hi Frank,

    Here are my questions.

    1)what is the difference between license count by users which we do from USMM and License count by roles.

    2) which can be preferred to reduce overall cost of license and maintainence.

    3) Do this come into consideration only if we are using copies of predefined roles?

    4) how they count on custom roles?

    5) Are there any set of rules of assigning priority to roles?

      Hello Keerti,

      I have never used the assignment of licenses via roles since it doesn't fit in our licensing concept,

      but:

      1) I think there will be now difference except the way how you assign the license

      2) I would prefere user licensing...

      For sap a user typically has one role that describes all his activities. But in our small company we have many user with acivities cross applications. So we cannot use sap standard role concept. Instead I have created a structure based on our company organization and use multiply roles to combine a end user role.

      Think also about DUMMY users (for example for background processing or mailing) - normally these users need permissions for the corresponding applications but you will license them as test users.

      3) when you look at the predefinied values you will see that there is not really a great number of preassigned roles

      4) you can add your own roles to the list of license/role assignment

      5) no idea, just try..
