  Authorization Management


You can use the following authorization objects to control the authorizations for maintaining business partner data:

  • Authorization objects for the business partner:

    • B_BUPA_GRP

    • B_BUPA_ATT

    • B_BUPA_FDG

    • B_BUPA_RLT

  • Authorization objects for relationships:

    • B_BUPR_BZT

    • B_BUPR_FDG

In addition, you can assign an authorization group to a business partner in the dialog. The authorization group controls which users may maintain data for this business partner.

You can also define authorizations for fields and field groups using the Business Data Toolset (BDT). Depending on the settings you have made, the system carries out the relevant authorization checks.

In the SAP GUI dialog, you can display an overview of the authorizations assigned to you by pressing the Settings pushbutton.

For more information about authorization management, see Customizing for Business Partner, as well as the Developer’s Handbook for the BDT under Start of the navigation path Function Overview Next navigation step Dialog End of the navigation path.
