Authorization Objects in the CTSLocate this document in the navigation structure

The following authorization objects exist in the CTS:


    Used to secure the functions that change transport requests and tasks


    Used to secure the administration functions in the CTS

If you have just installed the system, use the role maintenance transaction to maintain authorizations. If you want to set up your own authorizations, use the authorization trace. For more information, see  Analyzing Authorizations Using the System Trace.

You can also assign the authorizations in the CTS for individual systems. This is particularly relevant for non-ABAP transports, since many non-ABAP systems can have the same ABAP communication system and this allows you to control the authorizations separately for the individual systems. For more information, see System-Specific Authorizations.


The authorization object S_TRANSPRT consists of the fields Activity and Request Type. The following values are used:

Activity Description
01 Add or generate
02 Change
03 Display
05 Lock
06 Delete
23 Change/edit object list manually
43 Release
50 Change source client

This is only possible if the request does not contain any client-dependent objects.

60 Transport
65 Reorganize requests/tasks
75 Release other user's requests
78 Edit transport proposal
87 Assign your own request to another user
90 Change owner
Request Type Description
CLCP Client Transports
CUST Customizing requests
DTRA Transportable change requests
MOVE Relocation transports
PATC Support Packages
PIEC Piece list
TASK Task (repair or correction)
TRAN Transports of copies

The authorization object S_CTS_ADMI, which is used to safeguard the administration functions, only has the field CTS_ADMFCT, whose values describe the various administration activities. Use the following values to assign the user authorization for particular administration functions.

Administration Function Description
  • Change the global configuration of Transport Organizer
  • Change the configuration of TMS
  • Schedule the transport dispatcher RDDIMPDP
  • Call certain administration tools (Transaction SE03)
  • Extended maintenance authorization when changing the object directory entries with the tool Change Object Directory Entries of Objects (Transaction SE03).
