Only one transaction code can be entered here, otherwise a single role would always be searched, which includes all transactions searched for and is assigned to the respective user. However, since the transactions can also be assigned to the user via different roles, this would not be useful. If you use the above Input variants are also only considered transactions that have been maintained in the role menu. If it is not certain whether the transaction was entered in the menu or in the S_TCODE privilege object of the role, up to four transactions can also be checked by searching through the S_TCODE permission object. Important is the attention and appropriate use of the AND/OR relationship. After the query is executed, the roles that contain the requested transaction and are associated with the user are now displayed. If you use the search through the S_TCODE permission object, the following result page appears. When looking at the result, in addition to limiting the number of transactions that can be entered, another drawback of this variant becomes apparent: Although both associated roles are displayed, at first glance it is not possible to see which transaction is contained in which role. To do this, the roles would have to be considered individually. If more transactions with user assignment are to be identified at the same time and the role assignment is to be seen directly, the use of the transaction SE16N is recommended.
If you have already defined a Queue, but the Queue does not meet its requirements or has encountered errors, you can delete it again. Note that your system is inconsistent when you delete the queue after objects have been imported (for example, after an error in the DDIC_IMPORT step and following). The deletion in these SPAM steps should only be used for troubleshooting and you should repeat the insertion of the support packages as soon as possible. Note that starting with SPAM/SAINT version 11, you cannot delete the queue after the DDIC_IMPORT step and following. Procedure Select View/Define SPAM in the entry image of the transaction. You will get a dialogue box that displays the current queue. In this dialogue box, select Delete Queue. Result The queue has been deleted. You can define a new queue.
