“Roles” Rule

Use this rule to maintain the assignment of license types to user roles. User roles enable users to perform certain transactions in SAP. FlexNet Manager for SAP Applications enables you to assign a license type to a role.

Usage Scenario: If you have a small number of well-managed roles that accurately represent the employees’ responsibilities, mapping roles to license types can be a simple way of determining appropriate license types (assuming that all users make use of all responsibilities to which they have been assigned).

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.
  • Roles—Specify the role or roles that are currently assigned to users, which should be used as a basis for license recommendation. You can use the wildcards * (to replace multiple characters) and ? (to replace one single character). For example, you can enter the role SAP_BC_*. As a result, all roles starting with ‘SAP_BC_’ are taken into account. Separate multiple roles with a comma or semicolon.
  • 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.

When you have provided all necessary information, click Create. The rule will be run, and you can examine the results immediately by clicking Show license recommendations in the Preview Results section.
