Altering Scripting per system user for SAP GUI Scripting security

Rohit Mahajan || 28 Apr 2016 6:43 pm || 1

What extension aids to enable SAP GUI scripting for specific users only? It was until now that the SAP GUI Scripting had to be altered for a particular application server and it was then that it was open to all people using that server.

    The scripting allows each user enhancement user_scripting_per_user. It has been observed in the past that SAP GUI Scripting has to be changed on the application server first by adjusting the profile parameter sapgui/user_scripting to TRUE. The new alternative is enabled by adjusting the additional profile parameter sapgui/user_scripting_per_user to TRUE as well. If in case this particular parameter is fixed then only the people who have the S_SCR authority can access SAP GUI Scripting for actin execute.

    It has to be understood that the Scripting will appear to be accessible to one and all on the login screen but people sans the authority will lose it after logging in. There are some minimum requirements for considering the option. The SAP GUI version is compulsory for the people who do not have the Scripting Authority.
