ECTR 5.2: PLM_START in combination with PLM_APPLIST

213 Views Last edit Feb 17, 2021 at 03:02 PM 2 rev

Hi,

Let's assume we have the two fictive SAP roles "CAD_USER" and "CAD_REVIEW".

The role "CAD_USER" has permissions for ECTR Professional (PLM_START 7523) and also for some of the CAD units (PLM_START 7520).

The role "CAD_REVIEW" has permissions for ECTR Standard (PLM_START 7522), but not for the CAD units.

Inside the file "plm_setenv.bat", wich is part of the ECTR configuration on the local machine, we define the variable "PLM_APPLIST" dependent on the two SAP roles:

The variable for the role "CAD_USER" would look like this: set PLM_APPLIST=INV;PPT;WRD;XLS

The variable for the role "CAD_REVIEW" would look like this: set PLM_APPLIST=PPT;WRD;XLS

On all of the local machines is ECTR installed inclusive the CAD units.

What happens now, if a user with permission "CAD_REVIEW" is logging in to SAP on such a local machine?

Can the user start only ECTR Standard, even if there are CAD units installed but PLM_APPLIST would not load them?

Or does the user get the logon error as described in SAP note 2767815 anyway?

Regards
