Authorizations are checked against objects in the system. Authorization objects enable complex checks (linked to several conditions) of an authorization. For the authorization check to be successful, the user must pass the check for each field contained in the object. Assign this auth object to a role and assign this role to user who suppose to create BOM.

example - to crete BOm you need auth object - C_STUE_BER

In this the fileds

STLTY BOM category


ACTVT Activity

BEGRU Authorization gr

This authorization object allows you to restrict maintenance of bills of material.

The system checks this authorization when you call a transaction for maintaining bills of material. If the authorization group is changed while the BOM is being maintained, the system checks the authorization again.

Defined Fields

The table below shows the fields and values of the authorization object.

Fields Possible Description


ACTVT 01 Create

(Activity) 02 Change

03 Display

Hii piyush!!!

This is something related to basis activity. When end user ask for some activity in their logon data, functional consultant give the SU53 information, which consist of authorization check data by which basis consultant get to know, what authorization object is missing for the particular user.

I hope I have cleared you. I should get some points...

Dear Kapil,

First thanks.

You may be knowing Piyush, whether he is a infant or consultant. I may not be knowing...I am giving the std answer in which he will take what is required for him. In our company we are giving all these data because i will be knowing which value has to be inserted and I am designing the role...I am thing in that way and answering. On the other hand Piyush should come back if he needs clarification if required,

Piyush - At least we expect a thanks from the member who got benefited from the answer, if not we are also investing time on his issue and giving our answer...

Thanks any way for your suggestion..
