The processing type Authorization enables variables to be filled with values automatically from the authorization of a user.
The processing type Authorization can be used with characteristic value variables and hierarchy node variables.
You have maintained the authorizations in transaction RSECADMIN.
If you choose Process with Authorization when you create a variable, the variable is automatically filled with the values of the user's authorization. When the user opens a query, the data is selected automatically according to his or her authorizations.
Note that when variables are filled automatically, they do not have to be input ready, which means a variable screen does not need to appear when you execute the query or Web application. The user opens the query with the authorization variable, and only the data that corresponds to his or her authorizations is displayed.
In the variable editor, on the General tab page, choose the processing type Authorization.
