Opening Cat & Ecatt in Production for Winshuttle


Hi Gurus,

We have recently upgraded our ECC system with EHP 5. Currently we are facing an issue with one of our third party tool "Winshuttle" [Non Batch scripts, we use them for park/post docs] to run its script as it requires the following authorization



also the client should be open "CAT & ECATT ALLOWED"


Implement one of their Transaction Function Module's and upgrade the version of their software.

The TFM has not been certified by SAP yet. and i am kind of nervous to have the client open for cat & ecatt. I can add the develop access with OBJTYPE - ECSC & SCAT to the winshuttle RFC role so that i can minimize the users who have this authorization. I can further restrict the type of file that could be run by OBJNAME.

I would like to know, would i be opening pandora's box if we have CAT & ECATT ALLOWED in Prod Systems ?

Any thoughts, suggestion are much appreciated..
