Understanding and Managing Licensing Options in Oracle E-Business Suite

Guest Author

License Manager is a utility that registers additional products, country-specific functionalities, and languages for your Oracle E-Business Suite system. Application products that you use after the initial installation must be registered as active in order to be included in various system maintenance tasks.

We receive a lot of questions on this particular area:

  • How does the activation process work?
  • Which tables are involved?
  • How are dependencies between products calculated?
  • What if a product is activated by mistake?

We are pleased to announce a new document that answers all these questions with extensive coverage on how License Manager works:

    This document came at the perfect time for many of us upgrading to R12.2.x. With the new tech stack, new functional modules/features and just plain new look and feel, this is a great time to review what's licensed, what's not and what needs to be done.

    After browsing the R12.2 Setup document yesterday, I was planning on composing an email to our sales rep but I'm going to read your document first. You can't have enough information when you talk to sales...:-)

    Thanks Max!

    we are using R12.1.3, now my client is asking me, are we enough license in our all modules.

    let me know/understand how to findout.

    license is based on the number user in the module or

    if you enable licenses thru OAM in one module. that is enough.

    and than we can assign the module to 100 user. if we needed we can assign the resp. to 500 user.

    Hello, Ambu,

    This blog is maintained by EBS Development. I'm afraid that we do not have any visibility into contract-related issues like this.

    You should contact your Oracle account manager for questions about licensing.
