DDIC: DDIC is the only user able to log in or make changes to the ABAP Dictionary during installations and release changes. It is also used in the client 000, e.g. for certain jobs or Unicode conversions. DDIC exists in all clients except 066. Safeguard measures: In all systems (except for client 000 due to upgrade features), set DDIC to the System user type. If necessary, you can switch it back to a dialogue user using the Emergency User. Change the password, assign the user to the SUPER user group, and log it with the Security Audit Log.

You should then enable the latest version of the hash algorithms by setting the login/password_downwards_compatibility profile parameter to 0. This is required because SAP systems maintain backward compatibility by default. This means that, depending on your base release, either the new hash algorithms will not be used when storing passwords, or additional outdated hash values of passwords will be stored. You should then check to see if there are any old hash values for passwords in your system and delete them if necessary. Use the report CLEANUP_PASSWORD_HASH_VALUES.

This can, in the worst case, constitute a DSGVO violation and lead to a fine for the company.

In the selection mask, you can either enter your new Z transaction, or you can enter the SE16 transaction in the Called TA search box. This will search for all parameter transactions that use the SE16 transaction. In the result list, you will find all parameter transactions that use the SE16 transaction as the calling transaction. The last two columns indicate whether the S_TABU_DIS or S_TABU_NAM authorization objects have suggestion values maintained in the SU24 transaction.
