    So you used status profile to prevent the UD if the results were not recorded.. Correct?

    But you've found that the user status can be manually changed without recording results and than the UD is allowed. Is that correct?

    In the configuration where you created the status profile, there should be a field for "Authorization Key". You can set a different authorization key for each status maintained in the status profile if you want, or just one key on specific statuses.

    You than assign the users the appropriate authorization key. Only assign the key to people like the lab manager or QA who can authorize overriding the status profile and make a UD without all the results being recorded.

    I've pasted in the help file for the authorization key field below.


    From SAP help:

    Authorization key

    The authorization key is the basis for status-dependent authorization verification.


    Whenever a user status is set or deleted, the user's authorization to do so is checked. The status profile, the object type and the authorization key for the user status concerned are checked.

    If, for example, you want to ensure that certain user statuses can be changed only by people in a particular group, you assign all those user statuses an authorization key.

    Then use authorization object B_USERSTAT to give authorizations for those authorization keys.
