Hi Vignesh,

Yes, you can open Dialog sessions with a Service user type. Here are the characteristics of each one:

Dialog (A):

  • Individual system access (personalized)
  • It is possible to log on using SAP GUI. The user is therefore capable of interaction through SAP GUI.
  • The system checks whether the password has expired or is initial.
  • The user can change his or her password himself or herself.
  • Multiple dialog logons are checked and, where appropriate, logged.
  • Purpose: for individual human users (including Internet users).

Service (S):

  • Shared system access for a larger, anonymous group of users.
  • It is possible to log on using SAP GUI. The user is therefore capable of interaction through SAP GUI.
  • During a log on, the system does not check whether the password has expired or is initial.
  • Only a user administrator can change the password.
  • Multiple logons are permissible.
  • Purpose: Anonymous system access (such as for public Web services). After an individual authentication, an anonymous session begun with a service user can be continued as a person-related session with a dialog user.

Regards,

Pau

Hello,

additionally, there is - beside some benefits using a service user in comparison to a dialog user - also a restriction. The "Generic Object Services" (GOS - that is the possibility to attach some files to business objects) are not available when using a service user.

See SAP note 598073 - Message "No service available".

Kind regards
