How to keep user from changing query layouts ?

Hi ,experts.

I would like to keep users from changing layouts of a query.

However it is undesirable for users unable to save layouts of other transactions.

Could it be possible to grant those two requests ?

Best regards.

    Hi Takeshi

    If you are referring to ALV layouts then S_ALVO_LAYO and S_ALV_LAYR provide authorisation to the global display variants. These authorisations should not be assigned in Production to users - more preferable to design global layouts and transport. F_IT_ALV is an optional object whereby full authorisation to it is the same as no authorisation to it - i.e. ACTVT 03 restricts users to only selecting global variants and not entering their own.

    Select variants are not restricted through SAP authorisations so anyone can create them. However, you can protect a variant to only allow the creator the ability to maintain it and you can choose background to only allow it for background scheduling. If a variant is protected by a user and they leave you can run a function module to delete the protection and then allow another user to save it and protect it under their Id. Report RSVARENT will allow you to remove the protection and the data is stored in table VARID
