Simplified menu System -> Status in version 753 based NW systems

On one of social networks, I came across a status pointing to “simplified” pop-up window for menu System -> Status in SAP GUI. In newer systems based on component, SAP_BASIS 753 the window looks different (left part of picture vs old window – right part of picture):

Most likely, a reason of this is a cloud. In cloud systems, there is no need to know that much of details. Information like license no, product versions, time zone info, host and database data are probably not important for users in cloud.  

However, for some of users this information are still useful and needed. Luckily, the old screen is still there. In function group called SHSY there are following screens representing both old and new windows:

Old: 0701 - Kernel information in System->Status

New: 0750 - Status Window for Repository Data in Cloud Systems

The screen that is shown to the users is driven via user’s authorization. It is authorization object called S_SYS_INFO. Users having it assigned will get detailed (old) screen and users without it will get to see the restricted (new) view.
