SAP Inventory Agent

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

The SAP Inventory Agent (SAPReader.exe) accesses and collects the user primary record information from SAP Admin module systems and independent SAP systems via Remote Function Call (RFC).

The SAP Inventory Agent collects the data that is staged on the database in the SAP Admin module and uploads it to the FlexNet Manager Suite database. The data was collected from the dependent SAP systems that are connected to the SAP Admin module; it usually includes user information (user name, first and last name, validity dates, user type, user group, accounting number, cost center, and login times), transactions, CPU and memory consumption, roles and sub-roles, and license types and their hierarchy. After the SAP Inventory Agent has uploaded the data to FlexNet Manager Suite, it is cached in the FlexNet Manager Suite database and can be used to optimize your organization's license position.

The SAP Inventory Agent is run using the Windows scheduled task Import SAP user and activity information. You can adjust the timing of the automated data collection from the SAP Admin module. The default setting for the SAP Inventory Agent is to run weekly. However, you can configure the SAP Inventory Agent to run more often or less often. To change the scheduling of the SAP Inventory Agent, open the Microsoft Windows Task Scheduler and configure the task Import SAP user and activity information. For information about the Task Scheduler, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd363654(v=ws.10).

In a default installation, SAPReader.exe is located in the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Flexera Software\FlexNet Manager Platform\DotNet\bin. The SAP Inventory Agent is installed automatically during installation of FlexNet Manager Suite.
