Allow SAP support engineers remote access to your systems, so they can troubleshoot your issues faster.
Your S-user ID requires the Open Remote Connections authorization to manage these remote connections. Check your S-user ID's existing authorizations, and contact your user administrator if you do not have this authorization.

The secure area is the area in the SAP Support Portal where customer logon data (user name, password, server name etc.) for remote access is stored. Remote access is sometimes required by SAP Support employees when investigating customer incidents.
On September 27, 2018, a revamped Secure Area following the SAP Fiori design principles replaced the previous one. It is based on a different data structure, which made it impossible to migrate all existing data. After the go-live of the redesigned Secure Area, log files have been recreated in an extended format (with additional data, for instance the reason for remote access).
More information can be found in SAP Note 2694570.
Your S-User ID must have either the Edit my Login Data or Edit all Login Data authorization.
The processor at SAP who is investigating the incident can access and update the login data. If the customer incident is in process at SAP, customer employees with either the Edit my Login Data or Edit all Login Data authorizations can access the login data.
To access the Secure Area and maintain the data use one of the following ways:
In the Secure Area you can choose from the following main activities:
Note: Save entries on each tab separately.
All entered logon data is shown at a glance. Only users that have maintained this data and users with the Edit all Login Data authorization can see the stored passwords. For users with the Edit my Login Data authorization, the stored passwords of other colleagues are not visible.
Important: SAP recommends that you do not store logon credentials for longer than necessary. Please choose an appropriate expiration date at all times. Expired logon data is deleted.
