Funds Management Error
We are doing an upgrade from 4.6 C to ECC 6.0. My question is related to Intergration testing.
in both unit testin and user acceptance testing the MM transactions (MM22N, MM52n, MM53n and MM23n) were working just fine. now while doing intergration testing, when we try to post or change these transactions we get an error "No Authorisation for FM Area 0001 action Post message no FI020" and also error with message no FI023 which is also not a consistent error, sometimes the transaction works and sometimes it doesnt.
when we trying using the "SAPALL" authorization profile , the transaction works fine but when we use the sap user's authorization profile according to their 4.6c profile we get this error. its strange because it has worked fine UA testing but changed in Intergration testing whereas both are tested in one client, QA client.
can anyone explain what caused this and how we can change it on the system?
Thank you in advance

Just a hint, any issue with FI-FM which calls in ECC6 now, kindly report in one of the following forums:
Expert Forums - Industries - Public Sector (specific for PSM-FM)
Expert Forums - SAP Solutions - ERP Financials (FI in general but you can find also PSM issues there)
There you will find a lot of people that works with FI-FM (new name PSM-FM) and can help you with future issues, including me
I hope I could help you
