Property Description
Active License User account's license. The active license is loaded into the One Identity Manager database by synchronization or found from the calculated, employee-related license.

NOTE: The active license can be edited directly and changed. Changes to the active license are published immediately in the target system. The licenses stored with the roles and profiles are not effective in this case.

NOTE: If licenses are stored with roles or profiles in which the user account is a member and the task Publishing calculated licenses is run, the active license stored directly with the user account is overwritten by the calculated license!

The client related calculated license is entered for the most significant user account. For all the other employee’s user accounts, the employee related calculated license "11 (Multi-client/system user)" is entered. This also contains a reference to the calculated most significant user account (Calculated ref. name).

Calculated ref. name Link to the calculated most significant user account if "11 (Multi-client/system user)" is entered.

Measurement data is displayed for each user account assignment to the target system and to child systems if the user accounts are managed over CUA,

To display measurement data for a centrally administered user account

  1. Select the category SAP R/3 | User accounts.
  2. Select the user account in the result list.

Finding Licenses using SAP Roles and SAP Profiles

Finding Licenses using SAP Roles and SAP Profiles

The most significant license can be determined from role and profile licenses that are not managed through CUAClosed. You must make the initial assignment of licenses manually after synchronizing roles and profiles. One Identity Manager determines the user account's highest rated license through user account memberships in roles and profiles. The employee's most significant user account is found across clients and system. The most significant license is added to the user account as the active license and published in the target system.

To assign roles and profiles

  1. Select the category SAP R/3 | Roles.

    – OR –

    Select the category SAP R/3 | Profiles.

  2. Select the role or profile in the result list.
  3. Assign a license in License.
  4. Save the changes.

Determining an SAP User Account Rating

Determining an SAP User Account Rating

NOTE: In this section, roles and profiles are grouped under the term "SAP system authorizations" to make it easier to understand.

A rating for a user account is determined in One Identity Manager by rating profiles and roles in which the user account is a member. Licenses have to be entered for the profiles and roles as a prerequisite. You have to make this assignment once manually after the objects have been synchronized. When the most significant user account is determined, the license names and any manually issued license value are taken into account.

A recalculation task for the DBQueue Processor is generated to determine license rating. The recalculation task is generated when:

  • The option System measurement enabled for the SAP system is disabled/enabled.
  • The option Has user account management for the SAP client is disabled/enabled.
  • User account assignments to roles or profiles are changed
  • Role assignment validity periods are changed
  • License's rating changes
  • License assignments to roles or profiles are changed
  • Employee assignment to user accounts
  • The user account substitute is changed

The most highly rated user account is determined in One Identity Manager in a two step process.

  1. Determining the significance of a user account within a client (client related)

    Memberships in system authorizations within a client are calculated for a userSAP account. Through this, the SAP system authorization is found with the highest rating. The license for the most significant SAP system authorization is added to the user account as Calculated license (client). The most significant SAP system authorization fulfills the following criteria:

    1. The assigned license has the lowest license rating (in alphanumeric sort order).
    2. If several SAP system authorizations with the same license rating are assigned or no license rating has been given, the valid license is the one with the highest rating.
  2. Determining the most highly rated user account (employee related)
    1. The most significant user account is determined from all the employee’s user account sin all clients and all systems. The criteria from 1a) and 1b) apply for these user accounts. The license for the most highly rated user account is added to the user account as Calculated license (employee). A reference to the user account calculated with the most significance is entered for the all the employee's other user accounts in Calculated ref. name. These user account contain the license "11 (Multi-client/system) or "04 (substitute)".
      Table 81: Employee related license
      User accounts Calculated license (employee)
      Most significant user account Calculated license (client)
      Remaining user accounts in clients of the same systems as the most significant user account 04 (substitute)
      Remaining user accounts in clients of the other systems than the most significant user account 11 (Multi-client/system)
    2. If a user account is not assigned an employee, the rating calculated under 1) is seen as the most significant and the license entry is added to the user account as Calculated license (employee).
