I am using 4.6C and I am looking to restirct end users to the creation of user specific reports only. With Global layouts being controlled by Business Process Owners.

Does anyone know if this is done by Authorization objects or via User parameters. If so whihc ones would I use

    I suggest to use authorization object. What do you mean by user specifec report? You have a standard auth. object S_DEVELOP that checks whenever you create a program using which you can restrict them from creating programs.

    Hope this helps you.

    • Hi Stefan!

      I don't think, there is a special authorization check implemented. Have a look a the documentation of function module REUSE_ALV_LIST_DISPLAY, parameter I_SAVE. Here you can see the different system behaviors - but only depending on this parameter. Looks like special program settings (i_save = 'U') are required for your requirement.
