will there be an authority check ?

Hi all,,

am an ABAPer, i want to know that will there be any authorization issue in fetching the records from the table. ie. for a particular user, the retrieval of records of certain particular company code is not possible.

The user was able to run the transaction these days, but recently she was encountering the issue. It means that even for the roled she has, she would be able to run the transaction.

But would the authority may not be given at the table level, or while fetching of data, will it verify that the data could be given to the user or not.

please clarify me, whether it is possible to block the user retrieving certain data.. especially data specific to company codes.

She is able to work with other company codes, but not with just one Company code?

thanks in adv


It completely depends on what kind of program you run.

Most SAP created programs have authority checks build in.

Most customer programs don’t have that, because abapers did not include Authority checks.

Would suggest to contact your security admin and together investigate this (by creating a test user).

Remember: only authority checks that are build in by the designer will work! And the "normal"way of assigning authority checks to a program is by calling a sub routine!
