      Note Note

      The logon screen cannot be used together with a trusted system relationship.

  • SNC (Secure Network Communications, available for types 3 and T only) If you have an active SNC-supported security system, you can activate additional security options that you have to set by choosing Edit SNC Options.

  • Authorization

    If you enter a literal in this field, the system performs a check on the client side at runtime to check whether the caller has the relevant authorization to call via this destination. The specified literal must be entered in the caller’s authorization profile in authorization object S_ICF.

    Example Example

    • For the destination in transaction SM59, enter the following data:

      • Value in field AUTHORITY of destination: "CHECK".

    • In authorization object S_ICF, define the following:

      • Value in field ICF_FIELD: "DEST"

      • Value in field ICF_VALUE: "CHECK".
