I've noticed several threads stating that the PISUPER should be a service user. However, the PISUPER was created as a dialog user during my install of PI 7.1.
Can anyone tell me why it would be created as a dialog user? I would like to change this user to a service type rather than dialog. Will this cause any problems?
Thanks in advance for your input.
Please see this help and see what all the service users are being created after installation:
Thanks for your input. Unfortunately, the PISUPER user ID does not show up in that link. This ID was created either by the installation or the configuration wizard.
There are several other users created by the install or the configuration wizard, but, they are all created as system users. The only one created as a dialog user is PISUPER.
Any help in clarification will be greatly appreciated.
pisuper is always created as a dialog user and should be used to logon to the system as administrator, rather than sap* or ddic: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nwpi711/helpdata/en/48/a9b9357e28674be10000000a421937/content.htm
Generally Service users are used to navigate between the application to application.
These users will not be expired..
In case of Dialog users these will be expired after certian duration.
I doubt if that would affect much in case you continue useing the PISUPER as dialog user. But make sure that, it will have facility to logon via SAP gui.
