SYSPRO Run Time Products
SYSPRO has commercial arrangements with several Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). The products that ISVs develop require integration into SYSPRO, often using e.net Solutions to call e.net business objects.
Run Time Product licenses are issued for this purpose as they allow third-party products to connect seamlessly to e.net Solutions at a SYSPRO site (if they've selected to license the Run Time Product) without any further e.net licensing implications.
Understanding Run Time Products
While the Run Time Product license doesn't require any additional configuration or assignment of licenses at the site, the SYSPRO site must have licensed the underlying required module.
If the Run Time Product accesses the Accounts Receivable Query Functional Area, then the SYSPRO site must have also licensed the Accounts Receivable module (which would inevitably be the case otherwise there wouldn't be any Accounts Receivable data).
Run Time Products were typically allowed open access to any e.net functional area. However, from SYSPRO 8 2021 R1 onwards, it's possible to have two types of Run Time Product access:
This means that all functional areas are accessible to the Run Time product.
This means that a limited number of functional areas are accessible by the Run Time Products.
In this case, the Run Time Products definition file lists the e.net functional areas required and the license generated and applied at the SYSPRO site ensures that only these functional areas are licensed.
You can check the type of access for your Run Time Product, by viewing the Run Time Products pane of the Company Maintenance program (indicated in the Access column).
Run Time Products are applicable where an ISV has a commercial arrangement with SYSPRO. Once agreed, a Run Time Product is added to the list of available Run Time Products that can be included in the SYSPRO license.
If a customer elects to include the Run Time Product, then the license is issued with the Run Time Product included.
Once imported at the site, the Run Time Product can then pass the product code at the time of logging into e.net Solutions. The login process validates the product code against the SYSPRO license and grants access to the applicable functional areas (i.e. Standard or Managed).
The Run Time Product connection to e.net is managed by SYSPRO and doesn't require or make use of any other e.net licenses (i.e. It doesn't use the e.net System Manager or e.net Functional Areas). As such, there is no requirement to apportion any e.net Functional Areas licenses across various operators.
If there are no other e.net requirements, then (as mentioned in the previous item) no other e.net licenses are required. Neither the e.net System Manager or e.net Functional Areas.
If you require additional e.net access (over and above the ISV's Run Time Licensed product) then the e.net System Manager must be licensed, together with the appropriate e.net Functional Areas for the other e.net usage.
For clarity: You don't need to take account of the Run Time Product requirements when licensing the e.net System Manager and e.net Functional Areas for the other e.net requirements.
