Did you mean: 
Noticed something interesting while working on a S/4 HANA 1809 box today.



Problem: Launching system>status from the menu bar did not launch the usual, expected screen for me. Instead, what I got was a very restricted subset of the information under the header "Repository Data" -








Weird, where was the good old popup with the technical data and product information?




Solution: A bit of digging led me to the solution. SAP Note 2658772.




SAP_BASIS version 7.53 has now introduced a new authorization check on system>status. The contents of this popup is now restricted through the authorization object S_SYS_INFO. There was no restriction on this in the earlier versions.




In order to get back the unrestricted view, you will need to create a new role containing the above object, or add it to an existing role, with the below field values -




ACTVT:

03 (Display)



INFO:



  • USER (to view the "user data" section)


  • SYSTEM (to view the "SAP system data" section)


  • HOST (to view the "host data" section)


  • DB (to view the "database data" section)


  • KERNEL (to access the kernel information)


  • * (to view everything)











.....and voila!

Would you please suggest whats the alternative to find Product version with this restriction?

I have a question for the SAP development team:
Why are you not using the AUTHORITY-CHECK standard way of checking authorizations instead of checking this authorizations in a subtle way?
