Mapping authorization field IDs to field names (description)

Hello Folks,

I am trying to map the authorization field (technical ) names to field descriptions (long names)

Backgroud: I do not have enough input from the functional team yet on restrictions at data level. I have pulled out a list of orgfield values from USORG. Now i am trying to map the other authorization fields to their descriptions.

Table AUTHX only maps the field to the data element and while table DD04V lists the long field names for a given data element, i need to drill down before i get the description and thats for each fieldname / data element.

Question: Is going through SU20 for each object the best way to map the field description or is there a better way to map the auth field IDs to their description. And i mean for multiple input as there are scores of auth fields...

What you can try is the following:

Create a role based on the SAP_ALL template

Expand all nodes of the authorizations in PFCG, make sure 'technical names' are switched on.

From the menu, choose system -> list -> save -> local file

Choose 'unconverted' and save the text file.

With some fiddling in Ecxel you should be able to extract all field names from this file.

Hope this helps,
