Given SAP's new policy of charging a license cost for “indirect accesses” to SAP, we have the question of whether it would affect our platform. The way to "interact" SAP with our Platform is as follows:
We have developed a SAP Addon (developed with ABAP) that invokes Platform web services to bring the information you need to create invoice transactions in SAP (MIRO, FB60). Therefore, it is SAP, the "Digital Core", who generates invoices automatically based on the information that has been brought by invoking an Platform web service. We understand that in this scenario it would not apply to charge costs associated with "indirect access", but a client asks us to assure it and, since it is a new policy, we would like to confirm it.
Well Former Member,
SAP account executive is the right person to review with topic along with the customer. The data flow, the users accessing your development and the volume of the documents are just some components that needs to be reviewed against your customer SAP licensing/subscription contract.
Rule of a thumb that I go along with to avoid issues is - you need a license for each named user accessing the functionality, just like as if they were doing it from SAP.
