Assigning ABAP reports to roles

Hi All,

I have a problem here.

I am using ECC 5 here.

I want to assign a ABAP program with a variant to a role.

I tried it through PFCG -> Menu Tab-> and clicked on reports-> selected ABAP Report -> wrote report name and its variant.

It created a Y transaction.

Now i assigned the role and transaction to the user and he is able to execute the transaction. But the problem is he is also able to see and choose other variants too. I want to restrict that so that he cant see or choose any other variant.

I ran authorization trace and a few objects were checked.

I added those objects in su24 for check indicators.

I left those auth objects empty in the role.

but the user is still able to execute the transaction and also see and choose the variants.

I do not want to give any rights of SA38.

Kindly help me in this in restrcting the variant access

    shouldn't checking the checkbox "skip selectionscreen" in the menutab for your Y transaction solve this issue?

      Hi All,

      Thanks for your valuable inputs.

      I assigned a auth group to the program and added s_program to the role's auth data and did not assign variant.

      Its working good and the user is not able to see or choose variants.

      Now i will deploy this in production

      I am happy to award points to you
