Kanban authorization checks (SU24, PK13N, PK*)



Does anyone know why the Kanban transactions (PK*) have mostly disabled authorization check indicators in SU24?

In PK13N, for example, there is functionality to do a goods receipt (MIGO GR) and also functionality to create POs (and maybe more that I have not looked into yet).

However, the related auth objects in SU24 are not enabled (check indicator = do not check). This seems strange for these authorization objects.

Especially in light of SoD. Users could create POs or do Goods Receipt via PK13 without proper auth check and these 2 functions conflict already (using default GRC ruleset).

But that's beside the point. The question is: Is there a good reason why these are disabled and how is this NOT a secuty risk?

Now, there is one object that is enabled: C_KANBAN

But, I feel that this is insufficient to really secure the goods receipt action and the PO creation action.

For reference, a list of disabled auth objects:
