Authorization check without writing password?
I could really use a help with this issue...
There are several statuses available for transport requests in our SManager. Those are:
1. import of request
2. development finished
3. transported to test
4. test finished
6. transported to production
Now we're facing the problem that every SOL user can set any status he wants, which is not very wise thing to do (some external programmer can easily set status 'approval for production').
We tried to accept usage of digital signature (method: System signature) but couldn't deal with it, because it takes to much time to enter password for each and every one of the requests you want to change status... Everybody is full of administration and we want some kind of user exit that will perform authority check and inform user is he or is he not able to set the status.
Now, I realize there is another possibility to implement digital signature using another kind of method, but don't know what to do, where should I start with my programming :)?
I suppose I need to have some kind of Z* function module or BAPI or ABAP program to provide this?
Please help me.... Any kind of information will be useful...
Thanks and best regards,
