Authorizations for accessing background processing jobs can be set up for two types of users: administrators and end users.
Give administrator authorization only to a small number of trustworthy employees. This level of authorization allows a user to:
Have unrestricted access to background processing jobs
Perform any operation on any job, including:
Selecting jobs from all clients (from the Job Overview , Transaction SM37)
Releasing jobs to start
Changing jobs , including copying, canceling, checking, repeating, and capturing and debugging.
Displaying jobs, job steps , and job logs
Triggering events manually (transaction SM64)
Editing system events
Working with raised events in the event history (transaction SM62)
Using restricted job classes A or B
Scheduling an external program in a job.
Maintaining SAP definitions for external commands
All users can schedule, cancel, delete, and check the status of their own jobs with no additional special authorizations. By default, a job runs under the authorizations of the user who scheduled it. Special user-level authorizations are needed for:
Any operation on a job scheduled by another user
Displaying a spool request generated by a background job
Releasing a job to start
A user's jobs are defined and run in the user's current logon client, regardless of whether the user's background processing authorizations are set for user or for administrator.
