S_SYS_INFO : Restricting information in system>status

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 –
03 (Display)
  • 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)
…..and voila!
