About SAP License Audit

Hi Gurus,

Here below is the turnover about a message I send to SAP.

If someone is familar to SAP Application Developer registration (got SSCR key), please give some suggestions about the latest question at your convenient time.


The message I send to SAP Service Marketplace----

Dear Expert,

I received an email from 'SAP License Audit China'.

I hope you can kindly help me to count active sap user. I have some

questions here:

(1)Do I need to calculate active sap user in PRD and XIP system only?

How about ECT(our QAS) and DEV system?

(2)How to calculate developer licence?

(3)There is a SAP user U123 in PRD and QAS system. Do you think it is

one license or two?




SAP's reply----

Dear Customer,

Following the answer for your questions:

1. All the systems you are using need to be measured. For test and

development system, only developer user will be calculated.

2. Please classify developer users as SAP Application Developer User in

User Classification, then running the system measurement. The number of

SSCR key will be taken as reference.

3. Each person needs be licensed once only. And all test users in Test

or Development system will not be calculated as chargeable users. But,

if this user is working in PRD as a professional user and in DEV as a

developer, we will count both.


My latest question:----

Dear Expert,

At the begining of our SAP project, Our implement consultants registered a couple of SAP Application Developer Users at SAP

Service Marketplace. Definitely, they got the SSCR keys.

Now here is my question:

Can I delete them? If I can, How to proceed?

There are some ABAP programs developed by consultants. If I delete their(consultants with SSCR keys) SAP accounts in DEV

circumstances. What affection or risk we have to consider?

Thank you in advance!

    Hi Jason

    You can delete the SCCR key from the Marketplace, just make sure that you delete the entry in DEVACCESS table as well. Then lock the user and if you have defined him as Developer in the Contractual User Type ( In SU01 -> License Data) remove the developer tag and keep it blank. ( That's the practice we follow since we have so many developers)

    Please note that if you don't remove the entry from DEVACCESS table, the user can be recreated and and can be used a developer.

    Hi Jason,

    All the SSCR keys that you obtain from SMP, are stored in a table called ADIRACCESS. You should be able to edit thsi table (though I am not sure about this). Also for the purpose of system measurement/user measurement, use the TCode /nUSMM.

    Anyways after a release upgrade, the keys are all gone from ADIRACCESS. I do not think if you change the contenst of the table, it will make a difference as you have alreday modified the objests.

      I dont know how SAP guys can track those registered developers. But you can delete them as some of our developer left the company we delete their user id as well as the access key also. There is not any impact of that according to me as its our company policy .
