SAP Product Topology Discovery Capabilities using Disc Jobs & SAP Products Recognition via SAI

SAP Product Topology Discovery Capabilities using Disc Jobs & SAP Products Recognition via SAI

Hi,

We are working for a global Customer & Customer has purchased UCMDB with an expectation that it will help them in discovering all their SAP Products ( Both at the Discovery Topology Level using OOB Discovery Packages and as Installed Software Level using SAI Libraries)

I believe till now we are just having the packages for SAP Solution Manager, ABAP and SAP Java Based Applications. On the other Hand, Our OOB SAI Libraries are not even discovering many of these products or its components.

Can you Please help us in getting some additional capabilities on SAP discoveries in UCMDB ? If not, at least some guidance how to convenience customers who are asking for these  kind of discoveries.

On the SW Compliance Level, SAP has changed its model to Indirect Licensing but I seriously doubt if both UCMDB and Asset Manager have any mechanism to support SAP Indirect Licensing as well).

Below is the List of Products which we need to discover. Do we have any OOB packages available for SAP Discoveries?

SAP Adaptive Server Platform

SAP Analytics Cloud

SAP Business Suite

SAP Business Suite - Employee/Professional

SAP Cloud Platform

SAP Contract Center

SAP Convergent Pricing Simulation

Thank you for sharing your idea! It’s open for comments and kudos, and we’re looking forward to input from the community. Once there is enough community traction, it will be further reviewed by the product team

The first step would be to see if we can train the SAI to recognize these applications.  Would there be scan files from servers that have these software packages installed?  If so, contact me directly at bill.dyck@microfocus.com and I can set up an FTP site for you to upload those scan files and we can attempt train SAI to recognize them

Thanks Bill. Unfortunately, Most of the SAP Products are not available as the Installed Packages & even customer is not aware where they have installed which Products. We have shown them the results of our OOB UCMDB SAP Discovery Jobs but customer does not seems very satisfied with the discovery results & finally they have decided to exclude the SAP Discoveries from our UD scope.  We will definitely try to reach the Team again if we are again hearing back from customer.
