Activate Change Pointer auths.


I am trying to activate change pointers using the transaction BD61. When I click save, I get the message:

No changes for user 'waveset' allowed.

I've also tried it with user 'SAP*'. Can you tell me what profile my user needs to have to be able to do this? Thanks!

    Do an SU53 transaction immediately after your error and see what authorization is failing.

      This is just regarding the debugging scenario which Charles mentioned :

      a) If it is an authorisation issue, just use the Breakpoint at Statement - <b>AUTHORITY-OBJECT</b>

      And regarding authorisation issues, as Charles has mentioned, after running into authorisation problem, <b>immediately</b> do a <b>SU53</b> , take a screen-shot and send it to the basis guy with a pack of chocolates.

    Hello Vu,

    The concept of change pointers is closely related to the Transport Management System. There is no use trying anything with 'SAP*', because this user is explicitly forbidden from making any such operations. Look at the following code which is being executed....

    *** no modification by user SAP*   *************************************
      IF   sy-uname       =    'SAP*'.
        PERFORM  raise_error
                 TABLES lt_enqueue wt_e071 wt_e071k
                 USING  0 'TK' 690 sy-uname ' ' ' ' ' '
                        wi_with_dialog lv_old_call wi_send_message

    I'm slightly doubtful that you are getting this same message with a different user. Could you please re-confirm?

    Also, the other user you are using, "waveset", please check if that user has the authorization to create a transport request (better check for both, Customizing and Workbench Transport Requests' authorization.)

    I shall, in the meanwhile, look further into the issue and let you know if I hit upon something.

    1. The flag that you want to set is stored in the table TBDA1. This table generally has one entry per client.

    2. Have you checked the authority object specified for the Transaction in SE93?
