Program not showing entry for Created by and Changed by in TRDIR table in SAP

Hello Experts,

We saw a program in TRDIR table which has no entry for Created by and Changed by. Other programs have this but only this one is not there. Please suggest on the cause.

    Ah, your "Created by" and "Changed by" is the column description from SE16N result screen. So it's not the technical name, it's the field label from data element.That explains the difference between your "Changed by" and my "Last changed by".

    Did you already checked, if RSRSCAN1 is the only entry with TRDIR-CNAM = '' and TRDIR-UNAM = '' ?

    You can do this in SE16N selection screen by (1) clicking on the button in column "More", then (2) clicking on the 1st button in pop-up window (looks like a tree/Flower) and (3) selecting the equal sign ("Select: Equal to"). If you do this for both fields CNAM and UNAM, you will select all entries in TRDIR, which have this pattern from RSRSCAN1.

  • Why is this a concern?

    Maybe someone has hacked the system and want to hide this actions. Or it is just artifacts over time. I see no pattern, I have found 10 lines with CNAM = UNAM = '' in a IDES system. All looks like automatic generated or Z* Y* programs for training.

    RSRSCAN1 is a regular program, but is replaced in newer EhPs, so could be an upgrade artifact.

    But as long as there is not more informationen...

    Please contact SAP Support with the concerns about the standard SAP programs.

    TRDIR is a view, by the way, not a table. There is no check / foreign key for this field in the table though, so I'm still not clear what exactly is a concern in this case.
