    This is not possible with standard SAP.

    Use an alternative control such as process (e.g. tell user not to use role) and monitoring (check when it is being used)

    I think this is best achieved by not implementing this restriction in SAP, but on an operating system level.

    it will be difficult to control time when users are logging on from different timezones for example, or when logging on multiple times a day.

    there are many programs around (I found quite a lot when googling) which will do exactly what you require and you don't have to custom make such functionality in SAP.

    I at least have not seen this done within an SAP environment.

    Sekar,

    If you use external authetnication for users when they logon to SAP, then you can control the times they can logon and which days of week (if required). For example, it is possible to use Active Directory authentication to authenticate users to SAP application via SNC or using a custom login module in WebAS Java, and in AD you can set times when logons are allowed. This might be what you are looking for ?

    If you want to log somebody off SAP when they have been using it for a period of time, then this can be dangerous if they are in the middle of a complex transaction when they are logged off. Also, I don't think this functionality is included in SAP product. If you don't want somebody to use SAP at certain times of day, then it might be better to force a screen saver at workstation instead, if this is what you want.

    Regards,

    Tim
