 AUTSW ORGPD (HR: Structural Authorization Check)


Authorization main switch that controls whether the organizational structure should also be included in the authorization check in Personnel Administration .


In the standard system, the switch is set to 0 .If you want to activate the structural authorization check, set the switch to 1 , 2 , 3 or 4 . The different switch settings specify how the system should react to personnel numbers that are not linked to the organizational structure (in other words, personnel numbers that have position entered as the default position in the Organizational Assignment infotype (0001)).

For these personnel numbers, you may want to refer to the organizational unit stored in the Organizational Assignment infotype (0001) for the authorization check (if the organizational unit exists). If you want to do so, you must set the main switch to 1 or 3 , otherwise to 2 or 4 .

If the person is assigned the default position and no organizational unit is specified in the Organizational Assignment infotype (0001) (or should not be evaluated), no authorization check by organizational assignment can take place. In this case, you can specify whether the system should grant or deny the authorization by default. If you want to deny the authorization by default, set the main switch to 1 or 2 , otherwise to 3 or 4 . The following combinations are possible for the switch settings:


Evaluate Organizational Unit (if available)

Never Evaluate Organizational Unit

Deny Authorization by Default



Grant Authorization by Default
