Releasing Recommendations to the SAP Admin Module

FlexNet Manager Suite 2021 R1 (On-Premises)

By releasing recommendations to the SAP Admin module, you create a snapshot of the latest recommendations. This snapshot, or recommendation set, consists of license assignment recommendations and duplicate user recommendations. Only recommendations for SAP systems (as opposed to non-SAP systems) can be released to the SAP Admin module. After the set has been released to the SAP Admin module, it can be reviewed and processed. For more information, see Reviewing and Processing Released Recommendations.

All recommendation sets that have been released will be available on the History page. For more information, see License Position History.

There can be only one released recommendation set at a time. Before releasing another set, you need to process—accept or reject—the recommendation set that is currently released. For more information on processing recommendation sets, see Reviewing and Processing Released Recommendations.

Important: Until the recommendations have been made available to the SAP Admin module (which involves releasing the recommendations and accepting them in SAP mode in FlexNet Manager Suite) and changes have been made to the SAP systems, the optimal license position is only theoretical and the current baseline license position remains the true position.

To release recommendations for processing:

  1. In FlexNet Manager Suite, click SAP, point to License Position and click Current Position.
  2. On the License Position page, in the Tasks section, click Release recommendations to SAP.
  3. In the Create SAP Recommendation Set dialog, type a name and a description (optional) for this recommendation set, then click Create.
The Recommendations: recommendation set name page is displayed, and you can view the details of the newly created recommendation set in the License Assignment Summary section (available after clicking on Show user license recommendations below the grid).

After you released a recommendations set, you need to review and process (accept or reject) the recommendations. To process the set immediately, complete the procedure under Reviewing and Processing Released Recommendations. If you do not want to process the set at this time, you can return to it later. To do so, click License Position in the navigation bar and select Current Position. Then click Review pending recommendations in the Tasks section on the License Position page.
