    the number infoobjects

    10 fields a 10 chars

    changeable unlilmited number of info object

    navigational attributes

    only on global basis

    in 7.0 it is individually

    hierarchy authorizations

    via GUID and 0TCTAUTHH

    in this it ss equivalent to value authoriations

    composition of autorizations

    only intersection of auth object AND info cube

    in 7 it si union ( , as expexcted')

    authorization relevance

    per infoobjects settings

    Central maintenancefor (analysis) authorizations /transaction RSECADMIN

    Navigational Attributes��Can be assigned individually��The referencing characteristic( ) needsnot be authorization-relevant

    On the same level like the value authorization, you can also grant authorizations on hierarchy levels.Assume you’ll have a sales organization as depicted.

    You can also use variables for flexibly and dynamically determine hierarchy nodes.

    Type of Authorization��Only the Selected Nodes��SubtreeBelow Nodes��SubtreeBelow Nodes to Level (Incl.)��Complete Hierarchy��SubtreeBelow Nodes to (and Incl.) Level (Relative

    Use case: hierarchies that happen to be restructured regularly.
