License users issue in portal


We have a AS java only Portal 7.3 which has UME linked to my ECC Client.

We have 5K licenses for portal and 2K licenses to my ECC.

1. Now, with my portal linked to the ECC Client, how am I supposed to create portal user (using useradmin alias in browser or using su01 in the ecc client that is set as UME)

2. Also, if I create a portal user in my browser, the same user will be created in ECC client (backend)... In this case I'll have all 5000 users of portal created in ECC.. and I only have 2K licenses for ECC.

3. What is considered as a good strategy for UME for Portal ?

    I think this should be cleared with your license contact at SAP.

    Generally it may be fine to let ABAP backend be the UME for Portal too, and define the users as (license type) "SAP Application ESS User".

    But this option is meant for HR purposes as far as I know, so it would be safer to contact SAP account manager to be sure.
