User Information SystemLocate this document in the navigation structure

Use the User Information System (transaction SUIM) to obtain an overview of the authorizations and users in your SAP system.

In particular, you can display lists of users to whom authorizations classified as critical are assigned.


To explicitly search for authorizations that contain the full authorization asterisk (*), enter a number sign (#) before the asterisk, that is, search for #*. Otherwise, the system searches for any values.

You can also use the User Information System to:

  • Compare roles and users
  • Display change documents for the authorization profile of a user
  • Display the transactions contained in a role
  • Create where-used lists

    We recommend that you regularly check the various lists that are important for you. Define a monitoring procedure and corresponding checklists to make sure that you continually review your authorization plan.

    We especially recommend that you determine which authorizations you consider critical and regularly review which users have these authorizations in their profiles.
