Exporting Recommendations for Independent SAP Systems

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)
Before you can process license-type recommendations on independent SAP systems, you need to do the following:
  1. Calculate the current license position. For more information, see Recalculating the Optimal License Position.
  2. Create a recommendation set and release it to the SAP Admin module. For more information, see Releasing Recommendations to the SAP Admin Module.
  3. Review and accept the recommendations of the recommendation set you created in step 2. For more information, see Reviewing and Processing Released Recommendations.

You export license-type recommendations in SAP mode in FlexNet Manager Suite into an XML file. You then use this XML file to import the recommendations into an independent SAP system.

After you have performed the previously described prerequisite steps, the License Position page (available in SAP mode in FlexNet Manager Suite) shows the option Export recommendations sent to SAP in the Tasks section. You can export the released recommendations into an XML file.

To export license-type recommendations for independent SAP systems:

  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 Export recommendations sent to SAP.
    Depending on your browser, a dialog displays asking whether you want to open or save this file. Select the option to save, and click OK or Save.
  3. Depending on your browser, the file may automatically download to your default location, or a Save As dialog may display. If there is a Save As dialog, browse to a folder to store the exported grid, and enter an appropriate file name. Click Save.
The XML file that you saved contains all current recommendations that have been released to the SAP Admin module. Use this file to import the recommendations into the corresponding independent SAP system. The file can contain recommendations for several systems. During import, the independent SAP system will import only the recommendations that are appropriate for that system.
