zero cool
Currently Being Moderated

Hello experts,


Iu2019m working on a project with a team of NON SAP architects and weu2019ve been asked to come up with some idea to keep a track of all the changes happened in SAP system by any user. So for instance let say if use makes a change and save it then this change should be gets recorded somewhere in SAP with the use, date, time, new data and pervious data. Also it should only happen when a change is made. So let say of there any change happens in SAP regardless of any t-code it should get save. Iu2019m not certain how to accomplish it. I need your expert advice please.


Thanks a lot in advance

    There is standard table CDHDR (which has user id option) and CDPOS which store changed data....

    the prerequisite:

    data element of field should have change flag marked...

    In addition to the information given by  Krishnendu Laha you can evaluate every change document with one of the reports the names of which start with RSSCD* (SA38) as well as in the causing transaction.


    Keep in mind, though - not all transactions create change documents, some use other kinds of histories and some don't even do that.


    You should gather the team that has been demanding those change-documentation and have them specify the business processes (or -steps) where change-documents are a conditio-sine-qua-non and check what SAP standard has in to offer you. Evaluate the gaps (if there are any) and then you can define how to bridge them.
