    Hi Fawad Qureshi

    You can add the authorization object M_BANF_EKG in SU24 for the transaction code ME2A. Thereafter you can control authorization for specific objects.

    You can work with access control colleagues in your team if you are an IT Consultant or if you are an end user, raise a ticket with your IT Support team for the same. The below blog by arghadip kar provide additional information which would be useful:

    • Hi Fawad Qureshi

      If you are providing an update to an answer, it would help if you update as a comment and not as answer, so that it is beneficial to others.

      You could also include the steps that your access control colleague took step by step to include M_BANF_EKG in the role with authorization for ME5A. The authorization object is not available as out of box assignment and it needs to be updated as a configuration change by access control colleague. This might be useful for others in the community to be able to help you.

      Thanks & Regards

    Discuss with GRC/Basis team and follow authorization concept- Allow only that purchasing group only for users by creating role(PFCG) for authorization object of purchasing group and assigning the role(SU01) to the specific user/s

    I am already using this object for controlling PR creation. But this object is not working for ME5A.
