Backing up and restoring data
Have you ever wondered what there is actually a tab personalisation for role maintenance in the PFCG or for user data maintenance in the SU01? I will answer this question for you in this blog post. What do we need the Personalisation tab for? This tab gives you access to the central repository for personalisation data. The purpose of this repository is to create a storage facility for user- and role-specific data without the need to create additional database tables. This data should then be taken into account in all manipulations of users and roles. The functionality initially includes a generic repository for user- and role-specific data and centralised access to that data by user and role maintenance. It also provides the ability to connect existing tables with user-specific data to the central access via a defined interface. To store personalisation data in the central repository, a key must be assigned to the data: This is done via the registration transaction PERSREG. The personalisation data that you create is stored in the generic drop table. Access to it is provided by the class methods of the CL_PERS_ADMIN class. Different levels of personalisation The data can be stored either to the user, to roles or to the system. A user can then read all data assigned to him (via role or his own settings) at once.
This is where all the system's data resides. These are composed of the actual database and the DBMS, the "database management system". In earlier versions, the database here came from different manufacturers. For example, Microsoft SQL or Oracle. Since SAP HANA, a lot has changed for IT in this data layer. This is because the database comes from SAP itself and is automatically monitored by the system. There is more to this database layer than just the working data. Important elements such as the configuration tables and system data for control and application content are also stored here. This is the repository data used by applications.

Database layer: The database layer contains a database server on which all the data of the SAP ERP system is managed. This includes the database management system (DBMS for short) and the actual dataset. The dataset includes user data and data tables as well as applications and system control tables.
