    Hello,

    Authorisation is a generic term which is same as it's literal meaning.

    Authorisations can be given with the help of several authorisation objects in BW those are assigned to roles. these roles are assigned to users.

    check out the transaction su01 -> roles tab.

    you can check pfcg-> roles. Here you can see the authorisation objects assigned to a particular role.

    Hope it helps..

    thanks,

    Giftedbrain,

    Authorization Object:

    An authorization object groups up to ten fields that are related by AND.

    An authorization object allows complex tests of an authorization for multiple conditions. Authorizations allow users to execute actions within the system. For an authorization check to be successful, all field values of the authorization object must be appropriately maintained in the user master.

    Authorization objects are divided into classes for comprehensibility. An object class is a logical combination of authorization objects and corresponds, for example, to an application (financial accounting, human resources, and so on). The line of the authorization object class is colored orange in the profile generator.

    For information about maintaining the authorization values, double click an authorization object.

    The line of the authorization object is colored green in the profile generator.

    Authorization:

    Definition of an authorization object, that is, a combination of permissible values in each authorization field of an authorization object.

    An authorization enables you to perform a particular activity in the SAP System, based on a set of authorization object field values.

    Authorizations allow you to specify any number of single values or value ranges for a field of an authorization object. You can also allow all values, or allow an empty field as a permissible value.

    If you change authorizations, all users whose authorization profile contains these authorizations are affected.

    As a system administrator, you can change authorizations in the following ways:

    · You can extend and change the SAP defaults with role maintenance.

    · You can change authorizations manually. These changes take effect for the relevant users as soon as you activate the authorization.

    The programmer of a function decides whether, where and how authorizations are to be checked. The program determines whether the user has sufficient authorization for a particular activity. To do this, it compares the field values specified in the program with the values contained in the authorizations of the user master record.

    The line of the authorization is colored yellow in the profile generator.
