Removing empty entry from USGRP - users without a user group

Dear gurus,

In ancient times it was possible "click around" in transaction SUGR and create a user group which only has the field MANDT (client) populated. This is a small pest in F4 on the user group in SU01, displaying an empty but existant user group.

There was an old OSS note (it seems to have been removed) how to remove this empty field. Now you can even delete it in transaction SUGR (basis release 7.10) but it still exists by default.

You cannot insert it again, unless you have read the old SAP Note and use the ANVO code field of SE16 to copy an entry again and change it to an empty field in the debugger.

My question is (if you have followed this far): Is there some use case for this empty entry?

I tested it in SU01 and CUA (both master and child) without the empty entry and it works fine.

Does anyone know any reason why this empty entry is needed and the cursor of F4 finds it at the top (sometimes people hit "Enter" if not sure about the others......!!!)

It is not a bug, but just an invitation to hit "Enter"... in which case any value what so ever will satify the ACTVT check.

Cheers,

Julius

    I doubt it because according to note 426758 you can delete it.

    F4 returns entries in sorted order and blank is always first.

    Cheers

      Bingo!

      That was the note I was looking for --> https://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/426758

      It seems that in new releases the system behaves exactly the same way as described in the note, except the standard system in its factory settings rollsout the old blank entry from it's original source development systems.

      Someone needs to hit the delete button in Walldorf as well... 😉

      Cheers,

      ps edit:

      What I meant to have written was: "Does anyone know any reason why this empty entry is needed and because the cursor of F4 finds it at the top sometimes people will hit "Enter" if not sure about the others...
