How to work with RSADMIN table

RSADMIN table is important table from BW system customizing point of view. It does contain a lot of crucial parameters which are influencing BW system. For list of all parameters of consult to note 912367 - Composite Note: RSADMIN Parameter.

In case you need to either insert/update/delete any parameter of RSADMIN table you can use following ABAP report: SAP_RSADMIN_MAINTAIN

If you need to read parameter’s values on the fly e.g. from your routines in transformation you can use following function module: RSA2_RSADMIN_GET. 

There are couple of methods in ABAP classes which do the same however most of them are private one (e.g. CL_RSDRI_INFOPROV->_RSADMIN_PARAM_READ). Anyway nothing stops you to write short ABAP code snippet which would look like:

  SELECT SINGLE value INTO lv_par_value
FROM  rsadmin
WHERE object = lv_param.

Best practice is to maintain parameters in the table separately in every BW system in your landscape. Simply speaking you should not have a necessity to transport entries of the table. However if for some reason you want to do it, it is possible:

Use TA SE10 -> Create new transport. Edit new transport manually with following entries:

Prog ID:        R3TR
Object Type: TABU 
Object Name: RSADMIN
Object Key:   names_of_parameters_that_you_want_to_transport

There is a dedicated ABAP class CL_RS_SWITCH and method GET_VALUE that can be used for reading an RSADMIN table entries. This class is used in reading the entries in most case s of BW4/HANA systems. Here’s an example how to use it:

TYPE rsadmin-object VALUE 'BW_USER',
TYPE rsadmin-value.
l_value ).
