Change Variant Created by Another User
Is there a way to make changes to a variant created by user ID other than yourself? I want to modify an existing variant that was created by a user ID that is no longer with the company. I don't want to use the user ID that created the variant.
Please read the threads here in the forum about report RSVARENT, which will unlock the protection again.
I recommend that you give it a test run in a sandbox first together with a developer. ( Very NB! )
The report has some nasty features for the unsuspecting...
- It contains no authority-checks what-so-ever.
- By default it is not protected by an authorization group (see SAP notes on report RSCSAUTH).
- In earlier releases, if you do not specify which report variant you specifically want to unprotect, it unprotects them all.
- It does not raise any exceptions or error messages or warnings before you make mistakes.
To be treated with caution, but it does the job.
