logical system name vs. destination name - CUA -

Hey experts,

at the moment I´m thinking about using the CUA in our SAP environment for role distribution.

In this scenario I need destinations to the child systems (of course!). In all manuals I found it say, that i HAVE to create destinations which have the same name as the logical system. However, this is not possible cause this is against corporate name conventions.

So I tried to use different destination names, but when I use the function "text comparison" (SU01->Roles) it always fails and says that the destination to the child system is missing.

So here my question: How can I tell the CUA not to search for destinations named like the logical system????

Thx in advance, nice weekend ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oliver

    Oliver,

    When you run "text comparison" it checks for the SCUA settings. I'm almost certain if you run SCUA and click change and click SAVE without changing, it will have the same error as the "text comparison". If this is the case you have to repair your CUA. Let me know if you need help with CUA repairs.

      Hey Oliver,

      Well, you're not the only one being bugged by this feature. 

      Do you have any news on when SAP may fix this?  My issue is that I have 'overloaded' user ids - either my CUAUSER ID must have all the ALEREMOTE authorisations or my ALEREMOTE ID must have all the CUAUSER authorisations - and I'm not too happy with that.

      I think that also means I cannot protect the RFC destinations themselves with separate authorisations.

      Thanks for starting the thread.

      Sean

      PS - Later edit: Or maybe I should create Trusting relationships with current user checked?

    Oliver,

    My understanding of ALE is that the logical system and the RFC destination must be the same name. That's how the it determines the relationship when creating the model.

    The naming standard outlined in the CUA cookbook and other documentation is an SAP standard at many places.

    Cheers,

    Ben
