For BW Integrated Planning, users generally need the same authorizations as for analysis of data in a query. As well as the authorization for displaying data, they also need authorization to change it.
There are two types of authorization check:
Check for standard authorizations: Authorization object S_RS_COMP is checked with activity Execute. The user needs the authorization for the InfoProvider that the query is defined on.
Check for analysis authorizations: The user needs the authorization for the InfoProvider that the aggregation level is based on.
For a query on an aggregation level that was defined on a MultiProvider, the aggregation level is authorized for field RSINFOCUBE in S_RS_COMP. In the analysis authorizations, you use the MultiProvider however.
Aggregation levels are therefore transparent for the analysis authorizations.
The following graphic illustrates the basic modeling optoins:

You still need authorization object S_RS_PARAM to create global variants. This authorization is not needed for creating user-specific variants.
