Handling over-consumption of license types

This option indicates how FlexNet Manager for SAP Applications calculates the license position for license types that are over-consumed.

  • Recommend promoting users to spare superior licenses — Over-consumed licenses can be covered by spare licenses of a superior license type of which the over-consumed license is a sub-type. This is the default setting.
  • Show deficits against this license (license is at risk) — Spare superior licenses are not used to cover over-utilized licenses. Instead, the over-consumed license is over-utilized, and the resulting license deficit can be viewed on the License Position page.

For more information, see Handling Over-Consumption of License Types.
