      Hello Sahil,


      Please clarify; is 5XU and 1J2‏ available at no additional license cost to Indian customers with SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud licenses? Purchased in November 2022.

      Dear Jayalakshmi,


      5XU is license and  1J2 is non license (non standard scenario). You can check with your sales team if customer has bought 5XU.

      Hi Sahil,


      Is additional license required for scope item "1J2"?, If so how to activate the scope item,  as it is currently locked in our client?, Do we need to raise OSS to activate it?
