Inconsistencies with SU21 and SU24
While working on SAP Technical Upgrade From R/3 4.7 to the higher version as ECC 6.0, I encountered with an unique issue, however I am not sure if this has already been known to you So, I wanted to have it circultaed on SCN.
During execution of the SU25 steps: 2A, it compares the SAP values and so the tables will get updated with the new propsed values. But I found for some of the authorization objects the authorization fields from SU21 and SU24 are not in sync, which should be in sync.
Ex: For Authorization object: S_CTEMPLAT, under SU21 there were only 3 authorization fields as: ACTVT, BRANCH and OBJNAME but for the same authorization object, under SU24, in addition of these 3 fields, there were another 4 fields available. Detail can be viewed in the depicted diagrams.
So, when I raised OSS note seeking SAP involvement in order to rectify the issue, I was provided with a solution to implement OSS:# 1539556
So, as per the instructions, I was instructed to run a standard ABAP report: SU24_AUTO_REPAIR
This report helped me in getting all such missing authorization fields available in SU21 as available in SU24. There were around 10 other authorization objects where I had noticed the discrepancies which I was finally able to correct/overwrite after runnig the report mentioned above.
