How to delete developer's SAP UserID and his SSCR key on SMP?

How to delete developer's SAP UserID and his SSCR key on SMP?

Dear Experts,


I want to delete developer's SAP UserID and SSCR key in QAS and SMP.

Because as I known, developer's SAP UserID(registered SSCR key) is belonging to the SAP License measurement.

I want to rid of the useless developer's SAP userID and the SSCR key registered on SMP.

====================Here below is the message I created===================

Dear Expert,

One of our developers whom registered SSCR key left, I want to delete

his SAP UserID and his SSCR key.Can you pls tell me how to implement?

What might have happened(expecially the downside) in the corresponding

SAP Client if I delete the developer's SAP UserID and SSCR key? Will

it cause our system screw up?

I've searched the answer on SDN. Someone told me I should carry out the

follow steps below:

(1)Delete the Developer's SSCR key on Service Market Place(SMP).

(2)Cancel all the Jobs defined by the Developer in DEV.

(3)SU01, Replace the value 'Developer' with Blank at the 'LicenceData'


(4)Delte corresponding item of the Developer in 'DEVACCESS' table.

(5)Lock/Delete the Developer.

Is that right?



====================Here below is the reply from SAP===================

Dear Customer,

When the SSCR Developer/Object keys are transfered to the system, the

keys are stored in the following tables:

o DEVACCESS : Developer keys

o ADIRACCESS: Object keys

But we do not have any report programs to delete the entries from these

tables. If the customer wants to delete the entries, he has to write a

local program to delete the table entries.

SAP does not recommend ever cleaning out these developer keys, as long

as the user ID is Locked / Deleted, that is the main thing.

please Cancel all the Jobs defined by the Developer in DEV.

So my recommendation to you is to first lock the user id of the user.

Then Assign him a new userid which is not identical to the first one andthen subsequently delete the old userid.

If you have an absolute need to delete a developer key without deleting

a user then the easiest way to do this is probably to

write a report with the instruction :

delete from DEVACCESS where UNAME = ....

Please note :

There is no recording, who did what in the table, that is why SAP strong-ly does not recommend this, and customers will have to take responsibil-ity for this action.


====================My question is:===================

Do you have any better suggestions?

Hi Jason,

If this is not solved then you can remove the entries using SE16N. Go to this txn. Give the table DEVACESS and then press enter. Input the user details and then in command field give $SAP_EDIT and press enter. next execute. You will get the list of all users you wanna remove from DEVACESS.

Select all and use the delete option.

You got to be careful when doing it.

But as SAP says best option is to go for a report program.
