    Hi Swetha

    P_ORGIN is a standard SAP auth. object, you cannot modify it. You can create a custom auth. object and then add this new field to it. We have done similar approach for the same auth. object. So in your role assignments you can use this auth. object instead of the previous standard object.

    Hope this helps !

      Hi Swetha

      I can see that the case mentioned is some thing which needs structural authorizations. If the departments in your org. structure is maintained as Personnel areas then you can use the existing P_ORGIN itself... But if you departments are maintained as Personnel Sub area then you have add BTRTL to your std. auth, object and do the necessary checks.

      Other option i can think of for you is,

      If the PA30 is working the way you want then you can try to do auth. check similar to that. PA30 does the auth. check using the class "if_ex_hrpad00auth_check" and method which does this is "check_authorization".

    Authorization object can be edited i.e fileds can be added or deleted using the Transaactions SU21 and Su22 provided user has authorizations to do so.

    Kind Regards,

    hope it will help you.

    reward if help.

    In general different users will be given different authorizations based on their role in the orgn.

    We create ROLES and assign the Authorization and TCODES for that role, so only that user can have access to those T Codes.

    USe SUIM and SU21 T codes for this.

    Much of the data in an R/3 system has to be protected so that unauthorized users cannot access it. Therefore the appropriate authorization is required before a user can carry out certain actions in the system. When you log on to the R/3 system, the system checks in the user master record to see which transactions you are authorized to use. An authorization check is implemented for every sensitive transaction.

    If you wish to protect a transaction that you have programmed yourself, then you must implement an authorization check.

    This means you have to allocate an authorization object in the definition of the transaction.

    For example:

    program an AUTHORITY-CHECK.

    AUTHORITY-CHECK OBJECT <authorization object>

    ID <authority field 1> FIELD <field value 1>.

    ID <authority field 2> FIELD <field value 2>.


    ID <authority-field n> FIELD <field value n>.

    The OBJECT parameter specifies the authorization object.

    The ID parameter specifies an authorization field (in the authorization object).

    The FIELD parameter specifies a value for the authorization field.

    The authorization object and its fields have to be suitable for the transaction. In most cases you will be able to use the existing authorization objects to protect your data. But new developments may require that you define new authorization objects and fields.

    To ensure that a user has the appropriate authorizations when he or she performs an action, users are subject to authorization checks.

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

    You program the authorization check using the ABAP statement AUTHORITY-CHECK.


    ID 'ACTVT' FIELD '02'


    IF SY-SUBRC <> 0.

    MESSAGE E...


    'S_TRVL_BKS' is a auth. object

    ID 'ACTVT' FIELD '02' in place 2 you can put 1,2, 3 for change create or display.

    The AUTHORITY-CHECK checks whether a user has the appropriate authorization to execute a particular activity.

    This Authorization concept is somewhat linked with BASIS people.

    As a developer you may not have access to access to SU21 Transaction where you have to define, authorizations, Objects and for nthat object you assign fields and values. Another Tcode is PFCG where you can assign these authrization objects and TCodes for a profile and that profile in turn attached to a particular user.

    Take the help of the basis Guy and create and use.

    Sy-SUBRC values

    4 User has no authorization in the SAP System for

    such an action. If necessary, change the user

    master record.

    8 Too many parameters (fields, values). Maximum

    allowed is 10.

    12 Specified object not maintained in the user

    master record.

    16 No profile entered in the user master record.

    24 The field names of the check call do not match

    those of an authorization. Either the

    authorization or the call is incorrect.

    28 Incorrect structure for user master record.

    32 Incorrect structure for user master record.

    36 Incorrect structure for user master record.
