I'm new to security.
I want to know the procedure to provide authorization to a single user for a particular transaction code. I know the SU53 or the ST01 trace and how to find the objects being checked. But what I want to know is how you actually add them to the user profile. I do not want other users to get access to the transaction (for eg when I assign it to a role, other users having that role will also get the accesss?)
I have tried looking at resources, reading notes etc. but haven't found a step-by-step explanation of this.
you should open the role for editiong with transaction PFCG and then switch to Menu. Here you can add the Transaction to the role. Next switch to the tab authorizations. Open the Profile and maintain the missing authorizations. Activate the profile and the role and you should be done.
