User type 91 (USMM)

Hello,

I'm reading several articles about license audit and user classification. But I'm not understanding when I can create user type 91 in production system. Could you help me to understand about this?

Best regards

    Hi Giulia,

    I adjusted the tags slightly on your question.

    License type 91 is "Test." You can use this in production for service accounts that for whatever reason need to be classified as dialog accounts (for instance, DDIC, SAP*, and all the various service accounts that Solution Manager creates). This might also be accounts used only for running regular batch jobs or interfaces. While normally you would want such accounts to be non-dialog (and thus they would not be part of the USMM audit), sometimes this isn't practical.

    The key is to be sure you don't assign this to user accounts that are, well, actual users. That would probably be a license violation. And, of course, you generally shouldn't have actual "test" accounts in PRD. But for the scenario I outlined above, this classification is perfectly legitimate, so that you aren't being dinged for all the various service accounts necessary to run the system.

    Cheers,
    Matt
