Client copy profiles: SAP_USER SAP_UONL SAP_PROF

Hello,

I have explained my understanding below and need you experts to confirm the same:

1) Client is not reset when used any of 3 mentioned copy profile.

2) SAP_USER copies Users, Roles, Authorization profile

SAP_UONL copies only Users WITHOUT Roles and Authorization profile

SAP_PROF copies only Roles and Authorization profile WITHOUT Users

I need to understand two things

1) what happens to Role assignment to Users:

As per my understanding using SAP_USER Role assignment of source client will be copied. Using SAP_UONL Role assignment of target client will be intact and not changed and same with SAP_PROF

Could any one please confirm above understanding.

2) If I export one client using SAP_UONL profile and another client using SAP_PROF profile then I perform a client copy (may be using SAP_ALL) on third client and then I import both transport requests (once carrying SAP_UONL from a client, another carrying SAP_PROF from another client) to the target client of copy would it mean that it would contain

Application data from source of client copy +

Users from a client +

Roles and Profile from another client +

Role assignment intact in target client (as have come from source of client copy)

I know it sounds very complex but please try and address my query.

Thanks & Regards,

    With SAP_USER master data including user assigment will get overwritten for existing users on the target system, SAP_UONL and SAP_PROF does not involve role assigments.

    2.Role assignment intact in target client (as have come from source of client copy)

    In theory yes.

    • I just carried out client copy in following sequence:

      Source client: 400

      Target client: 403

      1) Exported client 403 using SAP_UONL profile to SIDK90029 transport request.

      2) Performed a local client copy from 400 --> 403 using SAP_ALL profile

      3) Imported above transport SIDK90029 followed by Post-Client Import Methods (SCC7).

      I would like to share following results:

      1) All users existed on 403 came as it is along with role assignment as on 403 (subject to role existed on 400).

      2) But all roles appeared in RED so I had to carry out User Master Data Reconcillation (PFUD).

      Thanks & Regards,

    Hi,

    I have not tried this approach. But I am sure that if you will follow this approach then user assignment to Roles and profiles will not be copied. And there will not be any Role/Profile assignment to user.

    Thanks
