We strongly encourage you to use the official SAP site to generate the modification key for an object. But what shall you do if you’re not allowed to register objects yourself and the person responsible for the task is on a sick leave or vacation? Or you’re facing a serious production issue, need to modify an object and cannot reach that person? Well, there’s a way…
There’s been a tool around “SAP R/3 License and Object Key Generator” which lets you generate the modification keys in a “less official way”. The tool is a Windows standalone application. Download zip file from here and extract it to any location. Run the application, enter your object’s details in “Object Key” section and click “Generate” button.
Another way is to use site “SAP Object Modification/Access Key Online Generator“. Go to the site, enter “SAP System and Object” details and click “Generate Key” button.
Modification and Developer Keys in S/4 HANA
SAP has deactivated modification/developer keys as a control mechanism in S/4 HANA (starting with S/4HANA 1511). Authorization object S_DEVELOP is sufficient to create and modify programs in S/4 HANA systems. For more information see OSS Note 2309060 – The SSCR license key procedure is not supported in SAP S/4 HANA (https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2309060)

I am not at all encouraging you to modify SAP standard programs or objects. But there are situations where you need to do this for example implementing form user exits in SD, creating objects as per sap notes etc. Whenever you modify an SAP standard objects or create object in SAP namespace system prompt you to enter access key. This is how you can generate this access key from service.sap.com.
You will get this dialog box if you try to modify SAP standard object. This gives you key of the object you are going to create or change along with SAP Release and Installation number. You need this information to generate key. In case you do not have authorisation to generate access key you need to pass these information to the person you are requesting.
Log on to service.sap.com with your credentials and click on link Keys & Requests.
Once you are in Keys and Requests click on ‘SSCR Keys’.
Now select Register Object.
Easiest way is to copy values from dialog box using Cntrl + Y method and paste it here in PgmID Type Object name and press Check button.
Ides Sap Access
You will then have object validated with system name in bottom. Match your installation number and select it using square tick-box in first column and press Register.
