Hi folks,

I'm new here and I'm starting do work with SAP now.

I'm participating in a project to update a company's Business Risk Matriz and I've found values like "$", "!^" and "*" in the "value from" columns of Function Permission. Could anyone tell me how does GRC interprets these values?

"$" : This is used for ANY value. so, if the field contains anything, it is covered by using "$".

"!^" : This is generally used while defining critical permission rules, check NOTE 2130951 for more details.

"*" : This is nothing but the actual value *. Though in SAP authorization it means "ANY" value.

Kind regards,
