Creating Scenario Definitions for Authorization ChecksLocate this document in the navigation structure

When you use scenarios for authorization checks in your coding, you must create the scenario objects as workbench objects.


You call the method AUTH_CHECK_SPEC in your code.


  1. Start Workbench for Switchable Authorization Check Scenarios (transaction SACF).
  2. Choose Create (Create).
  3. Enter a unique name.

    The scenario name must match the name you used when you called AUTH_CHECK_SPEC in your code.

  4. Set the scenario status.

    For more information, see the F1 help for the field in the system.

  5. Save your entries.
    You can ignore the following fields:
    • SAL Status

      While you can set the security audit log status for the scenario definition, it is only relevant in active scenarios.

      For more information, see the F1 help for the field in the system.

    • SAP Note Number

      The SAP Note Number field is used by SAP to document scenarios that SAP delivers. For partners and custom developments, this field uses the SAP Note for the switchable authorization check framework FAQ as the default value.

      For more information, see 1860162 Information published on SAP site.

Next Steps

Depending on the scenario status, you must run through your scenario to record the authorization objects required.
