Organization structure: "Legal Organization" flag

Dear Community,

In the SMACC, it is possible to set up the structure of the organization and there is a tickbox that allows to define if a node represents a "Legal Entity" or not:

Organization

 

As a result now that this setting has been adjusted for all our nodes, I cannot select the nodes that are not a "Legal Entity" in the "Search for applications" or "Search for computers" menu in SLM, they are greyed-out. Strangely I can still select all the nodes from the "Search for licenses", including the non-legal-entity ones. Since I understand the legal entities are the ones that can legally own licenses, I would have expected the opposite behaviour. The issue now is that I cannot filter my search for computers or applications by location (level-2 sub-node), only by country (level-1 sub-node).

 

Am I missing something? Is that feature configured that way on purpose for the search menu? What purpose?

Thank you for your insight.
