SAP users can be created using transaction code SU01. While creating SAP users there are only 2 mandatory fields User name on the Address tab and Initial Password field on the Logon Data tab page. All other entries on this screen are optional. But if proper roles are not assigned to the user, then the user won’t be having authorization to open any transaction code. Users and authorization data are client-dependent.Main tasks that can be performed using transaction code SU01 are

1)Creating a User

2)Copy an Existing user to a new user

3)Modifying a User

4)Deleting a User

5)Lock/Unlock a User

6)Modifying a User’s Password

7)Add a Role to a User

There are five types of users in sap

Dialog users (Type A)These type of users are used for Individual and interactive system access. Dialog users can log into the system using interface called SAPGUI (Newer versions of GUI can be downloaded from SAP Marketplace). During first logon, the user has to change the initial password. Also multiple logons are possible with SAPGUI (default value is 6).Multiple logons can be restricted using the parameter login/disable_multile_gui_login.

System Users (Type B)System users are used for Background processing and communication within a system (such as RFC users for ALE, Workflow, TMS, and CUA). Dialog logon is not possible for these type of users.

Communication Users (C)Dialog-free communication for external RFC calls.Service Users (S)Dialog user available to a larger, anonymous group of users. The system does not check for expired/initial passwords during logon. Only the user administrator can change the passwords.

Reference Users (L)General, non-person related users that allows the assignment of additional identical authorizations, such as for Internet users created with transaction SU01. No logon is possible.

Hi,

SU01 is for User maintainence. PFCG is for profile generation.

Via Su01 you can create new users, change password for them assign roles and profiles to it and also assign them to Groups like SUPER. You can lock and unlock a particular user. Personalization can also be performed here.

The roles which you assign them can be either existing one or a new one and in such a case you need to create a new role in PFCG. Perform the necessary activities like assigning the transactions or assigning the authorization objects.

Here you can create a single role or a composite role.

Also after assinging the role to a user authorization check and user comparison should be done.

A lot can be done.

Hi

basic user maintanence like unlocking user and changing the passwords can be done using the initial screen of su01 and also using this one can create user and edit the user profile and role.

many screen got changed with the upgrading the versions of SAP but su01 screen is the same.

Hi

SU01 is used for User maintanence. PFCG is used for Generation of Profiles. SU01 is for the case where the user administrator is logged onto the system and wants to go directly to the user and do some security administration (editing address data, assigning roles, resetting passwords, etc).

SU01 is used for Creation of users, Lock/ Unlock Users, Specifying User type( Dialog, Communications etc) , Deactivation of passwords etc. You can also use SU01 to assign roles to a User. These roles are generated and maintained using PFCG. Using these roles you can restrict the access to the user of an organization. You can use various objects provided by SAP for defining roles thru PFCG.

Hope this helps,
