Once the UPL is activated, you can access the usage data as follows: Solution Manager: BW Query 0SM_CCL_UPL_MONTH (other predefined Querys available) Managed System: Report /SDF/SHOW_UPL Based on the UPL's data collection, you can now use additional functionalities of the CCLM to depick, for example, proprietary developments that are unused for a long time. Do you know the UPL of SAP and already use it to gain more information about its existing system landscape?
In the area of SAP Basic Administration there are many tasks that occur at long but irregular intervals, such as adjusting the system modifiability. As a result, the know-how is often lacking and it is quickly taken to the next search engine, where long and partially incomplete forum entries make finding the right approach even more difficult. For this reason, I will regularly record recurring tasks from the SAP basis Administration for you in simple tutorials. This blog post will start with the topic system modifiability and client control. If you want to jump directly to a step-by-step guide, just scroll down to the bottom, where I summarised everything once. System Modifiability - What Is It? The system modifiability allows you to set which objects of the repository and the client-independent customisation are modifiable or not. Repository objects can also be customised even further, with respect to the software component and the namespace. You can choose whether an object should be modifiable, restricted, or non-modifiable. In this context, restrictively modifiable means that repository objects can only be created as non-originals (small note: for packages the setting "restricted modifiable" and "modifiable" is identical in the function). Let us now turn to the direct approach to the changeover to system variability. Change system modifiability As a preparation, you should clarify how long the modifiability should take place in your system. I have learned from my clients that it is often desired to set the system to "changeable" for certain tasks from the specialist areas only temporarily. If you have organised this, call the transaction SE06 in the 000 client and click on the button "System Modification". If you do not have permissions for this transaction, you can try either the transaction SE03 —> System Modifiability or the transaction SE09 -> Jump -> Transport Organiser Tools -> System Modifiability (under "Administration"). The following screenshot shows the way across the SE03: Here you can change the desired namespaces and software components depending on your request.

Let me show you how EasyReCert can simplify this process. Automatic representation of employees & role assignment Each user of the application automatically receives the employees assigned to him. In the first step, the user verifies the assignment of the employees assigned to him. In the second step, the user is shown the roles of his employees. It is now possible to mark the assignment of the role as correct or incorrect. Understandable explanation of the roles Often roles have no talking names and for the decider it is not clear which specific permissions are behind a role. The tool offers the possibility to provide a description for each role, which is available by pop-in. Looking up which role has which permissions and which is meant for which is completely omitted. Flags & Criticality The tool offers in its options the possibility to set flags for critical roles and highlight them in particular. At a glance, the decision-makers see that one of their employees has a critical role and can examine it carefully. Since roles are classified differently in each company, you are completely free to decide which roles you want to consider critical. Roll Whitelist Do you want to exclude certain roles from the audit? Or do you want to test only critical roles? The tool offers you a whitelist function for this. This whitelist allows you to include roles that you do not want to check in the recertification process. So you completely decide which roles the tool should take into account. Logging of the results The results of the tests are logged via the application log and can be viewed both by SAP standard means and directly by the tool. It is also possible to export the audit logs or add optional comments to the logs later.
