Noticed something interesting while working on a S/4 HANA 1809 box today.
Problem: Launching system>status from the menu bar did not launch the usual, expected screen for me. Instead, what I got was a very restricted subset of the information under the header “Repository Data” –
Weird, where was the good old popup with the technical data and product information?
Solution: A bit of digging led me to the solution. SAP Note 2658772.
SAP_BASIS version 7.53 has now introduced a new authorization check on system>status. The contents of this popup is now restricted through the authorization object S_SYS_INFO. There was no restriction on this in the earlier versions.
In order to get back the unrestricted view, you will need to create a new role containing the above object, or add it to an existing role, with the below field values –
USER (to view the “user data” section)
SYSTEM (to view the “SAP system data” section)
HOST (to view the “host data” section)
DB (to view the “database data” section)
KERNEL (to access the kernel information)
* (to view everything)
