LIcense allocation through role inheritance - transfer to child syst



Our ERP (Production) system is our Master CUA. the child system is BW (Production)

We maintain Licence data for users through role inheritance rather than using SU01 or USMM.

We have created - for this purpose - a custom table that includes all our roles. Each of them is assigned to a licence category - beside a Portal Group.

At the end of each month we run a licence population program that will assign the category to our users. The highest category will count for costing purpose

This table also includes BW roles which are physicially not in ERP but they are in BW. What happens though is that the users will be classified in ERP only and not in BW.

A few weeks ago I had to run the SAP Audit using LAW and as a result when I was measuring BW a lot of users were unclassified and therefore SAP put by default Licence 52 which is higher that what we normally use in that system (54)

What do I have to do to ensure that the classification gets done in BW when I run the population program?

Have the same program in BW or run something else?

Hopefully I have explained the situation, if not please let me know
