Use

You create the Central User Administration (CUA) with this procedure. The following steps are performed automatically in the background:

      The partner profiles are created.

      The corresponding ALE model is created or, in the case of changes, adjusted to the new CUA model.

      The text comparison for roles is performed with the child systems.

Prerequisites

You have created the logical systems and RFC destinations.

If you have already created the CUA, and now want to reinclude the child systems in it, execute report RSDELCUA with the Reorganize CUA Tables option in the central system and in the relevant child systems. By doing this, you delete all data that was in the previous CUA about the child systems, ensuring that you avoid inconsistencies when you reconnect the child systems.

Procedure

...

       1.      Log on to the central system (in this example, ADM, client 070).

       2.      In the Implementation Guide (IMG, transaction SALE), choose Modeling and Implementing Business Processes Predefined ALE Business Processes Cross-Application Business Processes Central User Administration Select Model View for Central Administration (transaction SCUA).

       3.      Enter the name of your distribution model, such as CUA.

       4.      Choose Create.

       5.      Enter the name of the child system(s), such as PRDCLNT324.

       6.      Save your entries, either with a complete save or selectively.  

The Display Logs  screen appears.

If you expand the nodes for the individual systems, you will usually see the following messages for each system:

       ALE Distribution Model saved

       Central User Administration was activated

       Text comparison started

If errors occurred, for example, when distributing the ALE model to the child system, the corresponding node is colored red in the system overview. Expand this node to display the error message, such as Error when saving the ALE distribution model in child system &. To display the long text for the message, place the cursor on the message and choose the icon under LTxt in the lower half of the screen (see Analyzing Errors).

Check

...

       1.      Log on to the child system (such as PRDCLNT324).

       2.      In the Implementation Guide (IMG, transaction SALE), choose Modeling and Implementing Business Processes Predefined ALE Business Processes Cross-Application Business Processes Central User Administration Select Model View for Central Administration (transaction SCUA).

If you have imported the Support Package from SAP Note 952349, the landscape information is read from the CUA central system instead of the CUA child system. If this is not possible, for example due to RFC connection problems, the child system displays the information available locally together with a message indicating this. If the data does not come from the central system, it may be incomplete.

       3.      To check that the distribution model was distributed, choose Distribution Model Display Structure.

You can now no longer create user master records in the child systems. However, you can maintain or delete users that already exist in the child system that have not yet been transferred to the central system.

If problems occur, see Checking the Setup of the Central User Administration and the sections following it for more information.
