DB users in SAP environment

Hi,

please if someone can tell me official SAP recommendation regarding creating users on DB level.

I know that is not recommended and also breaking licensing policy regarding to SAP note 581312, but I can not find any official documnet from SAP with recommendations for users on DB level.

Thanks in advance

Tomislav

    Hi Tomislav,

    Licensing says - You should not have non-standard users for database management but you can have nonstandard users for database administration.

    Since SAP application use it's own mechanism to interact with database using a schema owner, it is not recommended to have additional (non-standard) database management users.

    If requirement is just for database administration, then you can have non-standard users with defined roles.

    • Hi Nick,

      Thank you very much for your detailed answer.

      Exact requirement is that one of my customers wants to have direct access to DB and I was looking for official SAP document which I should give them with explanation that it is not allowed.

      Regards,

      Tomislav.

    Hi Tomislav,

    Are you looking for recommendations for creating DB admin users not related to SAP application ?

    As for users related to SAP application, it is created during the installation procedure itself and it is as per SAP standards.
