You can use the following checks to determine whether your Central User Administration (CUA) is correctly set up:

Checking the Distribution Model

...

...

        In the Implementation Guide (IMG, transaction SALE) in the central and child systems, choose Modeling and Implementing Business Processes Maintain Distribution Model and Distribution Views (transaction BD64).

        Check whether the entire model is displayed.

        If the entire model is not displayed the model is incorrectly installed. Check the target systems in the RFC destinations and perform the steps in transaction BD64.

Checking the CUA Model

        In the Implementation Guide (IMG, transaction SALE) in the central and child systems, 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).

        Check if the name of the model is displayed and, if appropriate, if all child systems are displayed.

        If the name of the model is not displayed, it is not installed correctly.

        If not all child systems are displayed, the model is incorrectly installed.

        Delete the CUA with report RSDELCUA and install the CUA again.

Creating a Test User in the Child System

        In the child system, call user maintenance transaction SU01.

        Check whether the Create New User function still works.

If you can still create users, the CUA distribution model is incorrectly set.

Creating a Test User with Roles

        Create a test user in the central system with transaction SU01.

...

Enter the logical name of the central system and all child systems on the Systems tab page.

On the Roles tab page, choose the Text comparison from child systems pushbutton.

Note

The text comparison is necessary to tell the central system the names of the roles and profiles in the child systems. You can only display and select roles from child systems in the central system from the possible entries help after this step. You cannot assign roles from child systems manually without a text comparison.

        Assign a role to the test user in each logical system in the system group. To do this, enter all logical systems in the System column and the role that you want to assign to the test user in the corresponding system in the Role column.

        When you save, the distribution process is automatically triggered and the user is created in the specified systems with the appropriate role assignments.

        Check the result in transaction SCUL.

Creating a Test User with Profiles

Assign a role to the test user in each logical system in the system group. To do this, enter all logical systems in the System column and the role that you want to assign to the test user in the corresponding system in the Role column.

When you save, the distribution process is automatically triggered and the user is created in the specified systems with the appropriate role assignments.

        Create a test user in the central system with transaction SU01.

...

Enter the logical name of the central system and all child systems on the Systems tab page.

On the Profiles tab page, choose the Text comparison from child systems pushbutton.

You can only display and select roles from child systems in the central system from the possible entries help after this step. You cannot assign roles from child systems manually without a text comparison.

        Assign a manually created profile to the test user in each logical system in the system group. To do this, enter all logical systems in the System column and the profile that you want to assign to the test user in the corresponding system in the Profile column.

        When you save, the distribution process is automatically triggered and the user is created in the specified systems with the appropriate profile assignments.

        Check the result in transaction SCUL.
