I need your inputs on my thoughts regarding client opening in production or quality systems.
Am a BASIS administrator and sometime we get requests from functional teams to open a production or quality client to do some direct changes which are non-transportable from Development.
So, my question is should we open the client with a setting "Automatic recording of changes" or "Changes without automatic recording". If they are really non-transportable, i guess there is no harm with the setting "Changes without automatic recording", but in case if they do some changes directly in production which are transportable from development, then it becomes an issue if the recording is not allowed so there will not be any log.
So please suggest if it better is to set it as "Automatic recording of changes" so that it will create a request and log the changes. It will be helpful to trace of the changes in case those changes are transportable. Is there any harm or audit violation if we set "Automatic recording of changes" in a porduction or quality system?
Am awaiting your thoughts on it.
