How to delete an authorization object

Former Member

Hi, expert

I created an authorization object by t-code su21, but later we find another solution for this authorization, so we try to delete.

But failed, system runs a where use list check, and warning:

Object XXX cannot be deleted because it
still contains authorizations

and find out the below object

Authorization	&_SAP_APP

What is &_SAP_APP? How can I delete my authorization object?

Thanks,

Barton

Hi, Bala

Thanks for your reply.

Where-used lists find out "Authorization &_SAP_APP". Seems my authorization object is involved in &_SAP_APP, so system doesn't allow me to remove my object.

But I don't know what is &_SAP_APP. So I can't move on.

Any good idea?

Thanks,

Barton

&_SAP_APP is an automatic generated authorization profile, which you can't delete or edit manually.

You probably need to install the bugfix contained in SAP note 611977. After applying that bugfix the warning "Object XXX cannot be deleted because it still contains authorizations" should not come anymore.
