SAP Screen Personas Troubleshooting

What to do if SAP Screen Personas throws you away with timeout error?

Double check:

  • There is enough memory for ITS server/service. You can’t find this error in system logs, only in web browser console mode (for developers)
  • Set handler CL_HTTP_EXT_ITS_BASIC for restgui service in SICF transaction

It works for SAP Screen Personas version 2.

Unlock variants

There is a program RSVARENT to unlock locked system variants (for reports).

Automatic PFCG roles assignment

There is a magic tool in the system that allows you to assign PFCG roles based on organization position. It means we can use org chart to say what roles and structure profiles to assign to users who holds that position. Let’s say for HR department we can assign role “HR Manager” and ALL structure profile. WHen somebody moves to HR department system will automatically assign that role and profile to him. The same if somebody leaves HR department role and profile will be revoked. There is no need to call IT to grant/revoke access. This is old mechanism, not very flexible, bo SOD control, but it works. New solution is SAP GRC.
