The SAP NetWeaver Business Client (NWBC), which is based on SAP ABAP Web Dynpro technology, is one of the front-end tools for accessing SAP GRC 10.0. Learn how to control the ability of end users to make changes to the user settings of their Web Dynpro-based application forms.
After reading this article, you'll know how to:
- Selectively control the ability of users to make changes to Web Dynpro application forms
- Globally control the ability of users to make changes to Web Dynpro application forms
Personalization involves the process of customizing services (for example, ABAP Web Dynpro applications) to suit users’ preferences. The WDDISABLEUSERPERSONALIZATION ABAP Web Dynpro parameter can be used to control the ability to change personalization settings, especially when the capability is abused by end users.
The capability to maintain user settings should be controlled in a business environment. If appropriate controls are not in place, it is common for users to play around with user settings. This often leads to unnecessary help desk calls as a result of end users tampering with the application forms, such as hiding fields or entering filter values. Changing user settings can lead to an avoidable error message. For example, if you have configured the description field of an access request form to be mandatorily filled before an access request can be submitted and the form is now personalized to hide the description field, then an error is displayed when the field is not completed because it has been unintentionally (or intentionally) hidden.
