The Data Inspector tool is designed for professional user to check raw data for trouble shooting purpose.
As of now, the tool shows the technical data mostly.
There is no Personally identifiable information (PII) data shown, like first name, last name, e-mail, age, title, position, etc.
The intended target roes for this tool are:
- Customer System Administrators
- Customer Implementation Team
- Partner Implementation Team
- SAP Customer Support Team
- SAP Engineering Support Team
The Data Inspector tool is not designed for the following roles since it contains technical data and not easy to understand:
- HR Manager
- Employee (Business User)
Step 1: Assign the permission for Data Inspector to intended users only.
