fax authorization

Dear community members,

I'm trying to prevent sending faxes from our sap-system. I identified the authorization object "s_oc_send" with com_mode "fax". After removing this object from all roles assigned to our users, they are not able anymore to choose "fax number" from "Recipient Type" within Transaction "SBWP" => New Message.

Unfortunately, they are still able to send faxes, e.g. purchase orders with medium "fax". Any input which authorization object should be modified, to prevent fax ?

Any help appreciated,many thanks in advance,

best regards, Achim

    Hello Achim,

    did you trace the "case" with purchase orders with medium "fax"? Which transaction was used? I think there is no authority check by doing this.

    Hi Stephan,

    many thanks for your reply. I just did an authorization trace today and that's the outcome of the trace:

    |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| |hh:mm:ss,ms |Typ  |Dauer(us)|Objekt          |Text                                                                   |
    |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    |16:12:52,963|AUTH |      ---|S_TCODE    RC=0 |tcode=ME22N;TCD=ME22N;type=TR;name=ME23N;                                |
    |16:12:52,975|AUTH |      ---|M_BEST_EKO RC=0 |tcode=ME22N;ACTVT=02;EKORG= ;type=TR;name=ME23N;                         |
    |16:12:52,984|AUTH |      ---|M_BEST_WRK RC=0 |ACTVT=02;WERKS=DRP;type=TR;name=ME23N;                                   |
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This was just a general authentication trace. So maybe you are right, that ME23n do not have any AUTH-checks in it.

    Any idea how to prevent fax?

    Best regards,

    Achim
