The user record is either locked or inactive.


To unlock the user, navigate to the User record:

  1. Search for the "Locked" field and ensure user is not locked >
  2. Search for the "Status" field and ensure user is not inactive.

Upon "Save", the proxy option should be available again.


  • Please note that the "Locked" field won't be available for integrated users' records, as per 2986517 - Password Field missing/Unable to unlock Native Login User.
  • For such scenarios, it's necessary to engage SAP Professional Services, as per 2149831, to correct the data in the database.

Also, it's possible to run the "User Summary Data Audit Report" filtering by the affected users and checking the column "Locked" to see when the action happened.
