Basis system access for client copy from production to dev / QA
I've got a request from my Basis team to give them access to SCC7 and SCUA with delete in production to support client copies from there to deveopment / quality. I haven't been able to find any best practices for how to handle this. I'm not sure SCC7 is something we want people to have in production. Deleting CUA doesn't give me a warm fuzzy, but it isn't as big of a deal because I can easily reactivate it from the central system.
What have you guys done in similar situations? The idea is that the access is needed in the source system so that it will be available in the target system when it comes up.
