CAT2 Personal number unlock ??


We have web enabled the transaction CAT2 for filling in the time sheet from the Portal through ITS.

The problem is that , when a user click on the time sheet link a number if times the prosonal number associated with that user id gets locked.

We want to some how unlock this personal number from R/3 automatically after some time, say 20 minutes.The locked number can be seen by going to sm12.

I tried changing the parameter ~timeout in global.srvc file but that does not seem to make any difference.

We are on ITS 6.2 patch 17.

Please help.

Thanks in advance,

    Hello Vivek,

    The ~timeout value should work properly. You might need to see if the ~timeout value is also set in the cat2 service file, if one should exist. Double check in SM04 after 20 minutes of inactivity to see if the user's session is ended.

    best regards,

      Hello Edgar,

      Can I have a question as well according to the topic?

      I have an issue with cat2's personal numbers. I would like to make the "personal number" selection screen field unchangeable by users, and have the field automatically loaded. The aim is to allow record working times only for the user who actually signed in the SAP/ERP.
