“Low Consumption” Rule

This rule enables you to assign license types based on the CPU time a user has consumed (used primarily for SAP systems), and based on the number of objects that were accessed (used primarily for non-SAP systems).

Usage Scenario: You could use this rule to identify users who should be assigned the Test User license type.

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.
  • CPU Time Limit—Select this option if the rule is primarily for SAP systems. Enter the CPU value that should set the threshold for the license type assignment. FlexNet Manager for SAP Applications holds CPU times with up to four decimal points. If the consumed CPU time is equal to or lower than the threshold, the rule condition is met and the license type you specify is recommended. If you specify a CPU limit of 0, this will match all users with exactly zero CPU consumption data.
  • Object execution limit—Select this option if the rule is primarily for non-SAP systems. Enter the threshold value for the license type assignment. The value represents the maximum number of times that an object has been accessed.
  • 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.
