Consumption of SAP Live Access is centrally managed and controlled within the SAP Live Access environment. You have full transparency about your usage in the Contingents page which shows a list of all contingents that were purchased and can be used for hands-on practice within SAP Live Access.

SAP Live Access contingents have the following attributes:

  • Unique contingent identifier
  • Contingents are assigned to a training system after logging in SAP Live Access portal and using them to start a course in the Course Catalog
  • Validity - defines the timeframe during which you can do hands-on practice
  • Consumed time - number of hours on contingent that were already used for practicing
  • Total time – the total number of hours on contingent that can be used for practicing
  • A Contingent can be used to access more than one training system, but not at the same time.
  • If the contingent is fully consumed or its validity end date is reached, it cannot be used anymore.

For more information about SAP Live Access contingents read the General User Guide.
