Procedure documentation Displaying and Processing Distribution Logs  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


You can use the log display (transaction SCUL) primarily to check the status of the IDoc distribution when you change company addresses or users. If you change a company address in the central system of a central user administration (CUA), the address is replicated and a CCLONE IDoc is sent to every child system of the CUA. If you change a user in the CUA central system, its data is also distributed to the child systems assigned to it. Up to three USERCLONExx IDocs are sent for each user:

        User attributes USER

        Profile assignment PROFILE

        Role assignment ACTGRP

You can then see in the result list of the log display whether a user or a company address has been successfully replicated to the child systems.

Displaying Logs


       1.      In the user maintenance (transaction SU01), start the log display by choosing Environment Distribution Log (transaction SCUL).

The system displays the Central User Administration Log Display screen.

       2.      Restrict your selection on the Users and Company Address tab pages using characteristics such as receiving system, date and time of last change, and last changed by.

You can choose to take into account only those IDocs that have the status Error, Warning, Unconfirmed, or Successful in one or more IDoc types.

By default, the deleted system assignments are not displayed. To display users that have been deleted in the child system, you must activate this option using the checkbox Display Deleted System Assignments.

       3.      Choose Execute.

The result list appears, and is structured as follows: the IDoc type is displayed as the first subentry below the user and child system node. The status of the distribution of this IDoc type is then displayed:

        Unconfirmed IDocs (gray)

O: Creation/change started

A: Deletion started

        Processed IDocs

S: Successfully created/changed (green)

D: System assignment for the user deleted (green)

W: Created/changed with warnings (yellow)

W: Created/changed with errors (red)

The number of the IDoc with which the relevant data was sent is displayed in the third position, followed by the short text for the status message, the date and time of the last change and the user name of the last user to change it.

Processing the Result List

You can display the result list by user or by system and then later switch this setting with the button System View/User View. You can also display the list sorted alphabetically or by distribution status, and then change this setting later with the button Alphabetical Sequence/Sequence by Distribution Status.

You can select any users or company addresses from the result list and redistribute them by choosing Distribute. If you redistribute users, a dialog box appears, in which you determine which IDocs are to be sent.

Process the entries in the result list depending on the distribution status displayed:


        Distribution with Errors (red)

The IDoc could not be updated. The error messages are listed. You must correct the errors and redistribute the user or the company address.

        Distribution Unconfirmed (gray)

The IDoc was not processed by the child system. This can be due to the fact that

        The IDoc was not distributed to the child system (depending on the ALE settings of the central system in transaction WE20)

        The IDoc has not yet been processed in the child system (depending on the ALE settings of the child system in transaction WE20)

        There is an error in the distribution itself. Check whether central user administration is correctly installed and whether the RFC connections, including the system user, its password, and authorizations (see Defining Authorizations for System Users) from the central system to the child system and from the child system to the central system are correctly set up.

In the first two cases, you can use the Status Monitor for ALE Messages (transaction BD87) to check the distribution status of the IDoc in the central system and in the child system.

        Distribution with Warnings (yellow)

It was possible to update the IDoc. However, there are warnings. Check the messages, and remove the cause of the warnings. Then redistribute the user or the company address.

        Distributed Error-Free (green)

The IDoc was successfully updated.
