Disable Copy/Paste / Ctrl-Y and CTRL-V

Hi,

is there any way to disable the Copy/Paste function in the SAPGUI? Especially disabling the key commands CTRL-Y and CTRL-C.

The customer would like to disable any kind of copy function

Thanks in advance

    I have seen this before for ALV grids, but am not sure whether it was a missing feature or infact an intended and possibly optional one.

    I suspect the former case to be true, so you will need to use SAPGui engineering to disable it and ensure that the users cannot connect from a machine they have control over to the server or an older SAPGui version. These sort of preferences have typically also been HKEY_CURRENT_USER settings so you might have trouble retro-fitting it as well.

    Which SAPGui version are you using? There is a new "SAPGui Security Center" available in 7.20 which might offer this control (amongst several others).

    Cheers,

    Julius

    @ Nishant: Personally I have used the camera on my iPhone but some installations ban cameras, so I bought a "Teach yourself photographic memory in 21 days" course and have not looked back since. I can also count cards if they let me see them... 😊

    • Hi Nishant,

      the customer wants tight security on his system: The user should not be able to cut&paste HR data for example into emails or other application that could be sent to the outside world. ALso all usb ports etc are disabled.

      I can't go into details here - security issue! 😉
