ESS MSS License for Users

Hello Sap Guru's

I have some doubts & want to have clarrification regarding ESS MSS License and the ERP System.

We have a scenario for ESS/MSS where the end users will be using for applying leaves ,payslips etc.We have procured license for ESS 80 & MSS 40 and ECC 140 end users.

Now we have 2 issues as below

First Scenario : AD(LDAP) User ID's are different from ECC system .For example AD will have UserID as JohnT and Backend its created as JohnTom and in order to access from portal USERID should be same .Over all there is mismatch in ID's.Is there any way we can use it without changing in backend system or at AD level.

Second Scenario : Many End user doesn't exist in ECC system and we want to give access for ESS/MSS through portal but this obviously won't work until and unless you have user created in backend system through  ECC.

Will there be a license count if we create users in backend system for ESS MSS Employees.

Is there any document or link where we have clear picture on this part .

Expected to have your suggestions

Hello Irfan,

If a user is running only ESS or MSS user activities (they are described in the excel list that I gave link in previous reply) in ERP system you can count them as ESS or MSS users.

You cannot rely on users' answers. Because they are not aware of activity types. They say that nothing is done except ESS but USMM does not think so. Measurement program is looking for some tables. If there is any records related to a user in those tables they cannot be counted as ESS or MSS. USMM warns you about those users.

You can perrform measurement like this.

1- Classify all users (except technical,developer users) as ESS users.

2- Run measurement

3- In logs you will see that some users cannot be classified as ESS. Take the list and classify them as employee. Rerun measurement and check logs again. You will see some of them still in wrong classification. Make thosse users limited professional. Rerun measurement.

Do this till classifying users as professional.

4- You will see users that cannot be measured as ess, mss or employee.

I am doing measurement with this approach.
