“User Names” Rule

FlexNet Manager Suite 2021 R1 (On-Premises)

The User Names rule enables you to assign license types based on the user name.

Usage Scenario: This rule might be useful, for example, if you know—despite the lack of supporting usage data—that a specific user should receive a Professional license (the user might be a seasonal user who only performs operational tasks at the end of the financial year). You can define a rule specifically for this user, using their user name, rather than leaving it up to the SAP administrator to ignore that user’s recommendation during remediation.

Refer to Creating a License Rule Set and Adding Rules to a License Rule Set for information on creating a rule set and adding rules to it.

To create your rule, specify the following information:

  • Name—Enter the name of the rule.
  • Rule Set—The rule set that contains your rule. This information is non-editable.
  • User Names—Enter the user name or part of a user name that must match the actual user name of the user’s account information in order for a particular license type to be recommended. You can use the wildcards * (to replace multiple characters) and ? (to replace one single character). Separate multiple user names with a comma or semicolon.
  • Recommended License Type - Select the license type that should be recommended if the rule condition is met.

    Note that this license type set will be recommended for users within Classic Business Suite, S/4HANA and Non-SAP systems when the "Recommended License Type for S/4HANA" is set to "Same as above" (default).

  • Recommended License Type for S/4HANA - Select the license type that should be recommended for S/4HANA users if the rule condition is met.

    Specify a license type other than "Same as above" for cases where matching S/4HANA users should be recommended a different license type from Classic Business Suite users.

When you have provided all necessary information, click Create. The rule will be run, and you can examine the results immediately by clicking Show license recommendations in the Preview Results section.
