In the Business Analyst role in an SAP shop, it may be helpful to know what Roles or Users have access to a particular transaction code. Here’s a little tip that lets you do all sorts of queries about the authorizations in your SAP system.
Use T-code: AUTH to Access “Infosystem Authorizations” Menu
To get started, enter AUTH into the command bar in SAP and then hit ‘ENTER’ or the Green check ball. The menu will change to the “Infosystem Authorizations” menu, which contains various t-codes for viewing the authorizations in the system.
There are numerous options to view authorizations by: User, Roles, Profiles, Authorizations, Authorization Objects, Transactions, etc.
I recently wanted to see the Users and Roles that had access to FI12. I used:
- Users / Users by Complex Selection Criteria / By Transaction Authorizations
- Roles / By Transaction Assignment
- Roles / By Authorization Object
When you’re working on security or trying to figure out who can get something done for you in Production, this is indespensible!
