 Synchronizing User GroupsLocate this document in the navigation structure


For you to be able to copy users from a child system and from the central system or to distribute users from the central system to a child system, the user group to which the user is assigned must exist in all system in which the user exists.


You can create user groups in the following ways:

  • Use transaction SUGR to compare the user groups that exist in the relevant system and determine in this way which user groups are missing. Then create these missing groups manually in the system.
  • User groups are stored in tables USGRP and USGRPT. As these tables are not Customizing but application tables (master and transaction data), they are not automatically included in a transport request if you make changes. You have the following options:
    • You enter the missing user groups manually in the central system.
    • In the system in which the user group data is as complete as possible, set the objects of tables USGRP and USGRPT for a copy transport in transaction SE01. Before you store the objects in the copy transport, manually insert all missing entries in these tables from other systems. Then perform the transport.
  • Import SAP Note 395841. In this way, you the user groups can be automatically created at runtime, for example, the user group is created when you copy a user to the central system, if it did not already exist there. If you are distributing a user to a child system in which the relevant user group does not yet exist, the system also displays this.
