Report Painter: FAGLFLEXT, profit-center authorization not checked

Hi colleagues,

I am using a Z*-library in report painter based on FAGLFLEXT.

When a report beads on this library is executed, there is no authorization check for profit-center (profit-center groups,…). Wether auth. Object K_PCA is checked nor an entry in RESPAREA.

When I execute a report from FGI3 transaction (also based on FAGLFLEXT) I can see that RESPAREA is checked with PCxxxxyyyy (xxxx = comp. code, yyyy is profit-center).

I thought that, based on the information in the IMG node “activate authorization check for profit centers” which appears if FIN_GL_CI_1 is active, that PC authorization check for reporting is ALWAYS working and I guess, in the mentioned system the authorization check was working before the last support package upgrade.

The important text from the SAP IMG node “activate authorization check for profit centers”: “The profit center display authorization for reporting is not affected by this setting. The system always checks this authorization, be it in drilldown reporting or the Report Painter / Report Writer reports.”

The system is ECC60 on SAPKH60023, so FIN_GL_CI_1 is not available, but I believe, the auth. check for profit-center in report painter reports should work fine without this.

Does anybody know if in ECC60 with a report painter library using FAGLFLEXT the profit-center authorization is checked, which auth. object is checked,...?

Best regards, Christian
