You received a popup notification that indicates that license usage limits will be coming in the 2023 Q3 release of SAP Analytics Cloud.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud  2023

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to SAC
  2. Get Popup


License Usage Limits will enforce licenses in SAP Analytics Cloud. This means that certain workflows will error if there are no licenses remaining.

The following workflows would involve license assignments:

  • creating users 
  • updating user’s roles (adding and removing)
  • activating a user. The previous role consumes a license that has reached the limits.
  • updating roles
  • adding users and teams to roles
  • updating teams
  • deleting teams and roles (users will get the default BI license)
  • approving roles for users
  • user creation / updates through scim (which include role and team assignments)
  • users that are dynamically created on login and the default role has reached capacity
  • users that are assigned roles through saml attribute mapping

Note: The same limitations apply whether the changes are done using API calls or through the SAC user interface.


To increase licenses, please reach out to or your SAP Account Executive

You can also reduce license usage by deactivating users and deleting users.
