This flag can be used to prevent the current client from being overwritten by the client copy program or used as the basis for a client copy or Customizing comparison.

In protection level 1: No overwriting, the client cannot be overwritten by the client copy program. This setting should be used if

  • the current client is a production client
  • Customizing is just being performed in the current client

In protection level 2: No overwriting and no external availability, the client is also protected against read access from another client (during a client copy or Customizing comparison). This setting should be used if

  • the client contains sensitive data that should not be passed on.


To set this flag, you require CTS (Change and Transport System) administration authorization which is in the delivered standard authorization S_CTS_ADMIN.
