Using a Support User to Grant “Read All, Change Nothing” Access Rights to SLD Systems

The System Landscape Directory (SLD) of the SAP NetWeaver is a central provider of information on software and systems and SLD data is critical to many processes, so you need to protect it. In some cases, however, it is necessary that a person can see all SLD data – including those used by the SLD administrator – but need not change them: Often, this is the case when it comes to issues requiring support, so for this use case, a specific support role is available, sparing you the risk that might be caused by assigning an administrator user.

Steps to Create a Support User
