OB52 is Still Accessable


I removed OB52 from all users roles by going to SUIM --> Roles by transactions then removed it from all roles as the company wants only users who have sap_all to do the work in OB52.

I did the above but when I check I still find two users who still can access OB52.

Can you please suggest how I should remove it from all users except admins

    when you ran SUIM report did you run by authorisation S_TCODE = Ob52 or via transaction in menu?

    Also to consider, Ob52 is not the only transaction code to maintain period end closing: SM30 with S_TABU_DIS or S_TABU_NAM authorisations to the table or table group. also, transaction s_alr_87003642 give yous OB52

    Finally, if it's a specific user with who still has access, you can look in their user buffer via SU56 to see what S_TCODE and S_TABU* access they have

    • glad to hear you had it working. The SUIM report roles by complex criteria with a filter on User Id and authorisation S_TCODE= OB52 should have found all of the roles for the user as well. Much faster than going through SU01

      I use SU56 as final resort in case there is a need to refresh user buffer or a corrupt profile that needs to be generated again.

    Can you do an STAUTHTRACE on the 2 users who have OB52 and see what authorizations they have?
