Can anyone offer assistance on saving a global display variant? I'm attempting to do so on t-code MB52, but the user-specific option is grayed out and cannot be unchecked. Is this controlled by configuration? If so, is it transaction specific? Or, does it apply to all transactions.
i believe it is not an issue but your system policy.
it is correct situation - we have the same policy when users can't change the global variant.
usually it is controlled by roles assigned in SU01
for example, find out a user who can (is able) save the global variant (it must be super-user of someone form support team).
then compare this super user with normal user and see the difference (different roles).
if you need to change the global variants (create, change, delete) use a super-user or contact your support team.
or create a new super user , or just simply assign the SAP_ALL profile for particular one (the same t-code SU01).
