Create new Z transaction ex: ZOB08 same as OB08. But in the transaction parameter put SHOW = 'X' by removing UPDATE = 'X'.

Give the transaction code to Security team to assign relavant role. So that they can only view the table data.

Is there a reason you can't restrict with S_TABU_DIS or S_TABU_NAM for Activity 03 only? User will receive a pop up advising them that the only have display authorisation to the transaction as it first checks for ACTVT 02 and then falls back to 03

Before posting this one, I asked my basis person to check with S_TABU_DIS one.

But he told me to not working.


Is there a chance that the user you want to have display only is getting s_tabu* from another role (cross inheritance). Also, su24 might propose activity 02 but doesn't mean you can't do display

You could build test user and role then run a trace to see how it works


I will inform to basis person.

Hi Kali Charan,

However, avoid copying SAP standard transaction.

First of all, consider checking it with Business Consultant via configuration - SAP Transaction SPRO => SAP Reference IMG Transactions.
