From our CUA child system I am able to run SU01 and RENAME a user. This is not good. (I cannot create users, or edit users using SU01)
I assume that I should not be able to RENAME a user from a child sytem. And once I rename a user I am able to edit it from the child system.
How can I disable the SU01 RENAME function? (for CUA child systems)
please tell us your release and hotpackage level on both basis and aba. this is definitely a bug.
Setting Up Field Distribution Parameters
If you are using Central User Administration, you can use the distribution parameters in
transaction SCUM to determine where individual parts of a user master record are maintained.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ In the central system
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Locally in the child system
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ In the child system with automatic redistribution to the central system and the other
CUA child systems
Every input field of the user maintenance transaction SU01 has a field attribute that you set
once in the central system with transaction SCUM during Customizing. As far as possible, you
should then not change the field maintenance indicator at all.
If you later change the distribution from Local or Proposal to Global or Redistribution, data inconsistencies can occur. When resolving these inconsistencies you must proceed with the utmost care. Otherwise data losses will occur.
The only exception to this is the Locks tab page. You can change the indicators
on this tab page at any time without any risk.
Log on to the central system
In the Implementation Guide (IMG, transaction SALE), choose Modeling and Implementing Business Processes → Predefined ALE Business Processes → Cross- Application Business Processes → Central User Administration → Set Distribution Parameters for Fields (transaction SCUM).
The system displays the User Distribution Field Selection screen, with tab pages of the fields whose distribution parameters you can set. To display additional fields, choose page down.
You can select the following options on the tab pages:
Global You can only maintain the data in the central system. The data is then automatically distributed to the child systems. These fields do not accept input in the child systems, but can only be displayed. All other fields that are not set to Ã¢â‚¬Å“globalÃ¢â‚¬
Ive set the Field Distribution Parameters correctly (as far as I can tell).
The problem is that I can run SU01/RENAME from a child system, and this probably should not be allowed. I cannot edit or create a user using SU01 which is correct.
Does anybody else have this problem? Is the RENAME option in SU01 greyed out, or available in your child systems?
sorry for delayed answer. i've checked in my own child-systems. i'm on ecc 5.0. it's also possible to rename a user. you are right - this should not be. i will open a call with sap and come back here to place their answer (as soon as i get one).
Thanks, I guess. It sounds like rename is allowed (in the child system). And I guess there is no way to disable it? The problem that we have, is that once a child system user is renamed, his user record is wide open to edit in the child system, and some cua users are not in sync with the child systems.
Let me know if you get any more info, thanks.
so long as in tx. SCUG is a system with the message:
New System: Not All Users Were Copied
it is possible to rename users in order to adjust those users for the copying to the CUA.
well - i told the solution: goto tx. SCUG, import all users and your problem is solved.
