Data Description

The RZ10 event is used in SAP to change profile parameters. The system automatically generates or updates the profile files at operating system level after an installation, upgrade, or the addition of a new application server instance. The installation program does not save profile files directly in the database. These profiles must be manually imported into the database. Changes are made to profiles at database level using transaction RZ10 (edit profiles). 

Potential Use Cases

This event could be used for the following scenarios:

  • Monitor to determine if critical profile parameters are being changed.

  • Use to correlate with other metrics within the SAP ecosystem to determine if parameters are being exceeded.

  • Determine which parameters have been customized.

Splunk Event

The event will look like this in Splunk:
