Further Developments in SE16_PERSONAL

Use table variants of other administrators

Assignment of several table variants

Assign table variants to other administrator

With SE16_PERSONAL, PBS has developed a role-based authorization concept to restrict the extensive powers of the SAP transaction SE16N. This authorization concept enables predefined authorizations to be assigned both to individual users as well as to entire user groups. In addition there some further developments:

Assignment to posting data

The assignment of a new posting year and/or posting date respectively no longer has to be performed for each role individually, but instead can be extended to a complete user group, which of course considerably reduces the effort involved. Date changes, for example, only have to be maintained once in the table maintenance transaction and are then valid for all roles.

Use table variants to other administrators

An administrator no longer sees just their own table variants via the function “Display all table variants”, but also those of his or her colleagues if applicable, and can execute them. However, it is not possible to change or delete variants that belong to others.

Assignment of several table variants

Several new table variants can be assigned to a particular user group using a utility program. The program recognizes, if applicable, whether these variants are already available. The assignments are logged. Already existing table variants of a particular user group can be copied in order to assign them to another user group.

Assign table variants to other administrator

Table variants can switch from one administrator to another. This can be necessary, for example, if an administrator leaves the company. Another conceivable scenario could be that a certain administrator has created table variants in the test system and that these were transported at a later point in time into the production system, where the variants have to be changed once again. It is possible that the administrator does not have any user authorizations in the production system.

You can find a detailed description of all new functions in the user manual.
