How to Lock all the Users in SAP System?

Lock all the Users in SAP System: Making user changes one-at-a-time can be extremely time consuming. SAP has provided mass change transaction to help making many user changes.  The mass change transaction is limited as to the changes that can be made.  For example we cannot change the password for multiple users. Also it is best to make one type of mass change at a time.

For example if we need to add a new role to and delete an existing role from 30 users. The best method to achieve this would be to first do a mass change to add the new role.  Save the changed users. Then delete the existing role from the same 30 users.

Step 1: To lo on to the appropriate SAP system and the client where the user changes are to take place.

Step 2: Go to transaction SU10.

Step 3: On the User Maintenance: Mass Changes Initial Screen, we need to select whether we will select users based on Address Data or Authorization Data and click the appropriate button. If we click Address Data, we can find users with any combination of First name, last name, User ID, Company, City, Building, Room, Extension, Department, and Cost Center.

If we opt to use Authorization Data, you can specify a combination of Groups, Reference User, Authorizations, Authorization Objects, and many other fields.  For either method, fill in the fields you want to search on in the Users by Complex Selection Criteria screen, and click the Execute button.

Step 6: On the Mass User Changes screen, scroll through the tabs, changing data and clicking the Add or Remove button for each correction.  Please note, each SU10 batch run must use all Adds or all removes but never a mixture.  Do all Adds in one run and then all Removes in another. Once all your changes have been made, click the Save button.
