Authorization Variable

Hi All,

I have a requirement to make 0Plant IO as authorization object in queries. The Authorization object tick is not marked now. By the post I have read i understand that I have to tick the authorization object tick in the IO. But I have a qusetion I hope it will not affect the ODS and cube in which this IO is being using.

Secondly I am not able to understand how to maintain the values for the particaular users in RSSM for the 0Plant IO. Where is that we can define which plant a user can see or not when he runs the query.

Please send step by step solution for the issue ie what is to be done in PFCG.

I am doing the authorization for the first time.

Relevant solution will be rewarded.

Regards,

Samved

    hi Samved,

    basically you need RSD1, RSSM, PFCG transactions.

    1. RSD1 to make the authorization relevant. it wont affect to ods/cubes, we need to create authorization object with RSSM, even authorization object wont affect existing infoproviders, but all new created infoproviders will by default marked for authorization check.

    2. RSSM, create authorization object, give name, e.g RPLANT, and choose your infoobject.

    after that back to RSSM again, and option 'check infocubes', and mark ods/cube to check with authrorization.

    3. PFCG, create role, choose created authorization object RPLANT, and assign with values, choose user(s).
