Authorisation for ALV Icons

Hi All,

Is there any standard authorisation object available to control the display of certain icons ( Say export to excel or Filter option ) in the ALV Grid.

We can of course control this at ABAP level using IT_EXCLUDING at a particular program level. But is there any mechanism to disable or hide an icon(say export to excel) for all users systematically by authorisation object method. This will help us to avoid coding in all the Z programs which are currently in place

This can be easily answered by running authorization trace (ST01). If it does not show such authorization checks then there is no standard functionality.

If your functionality is, essentially, the same then you can create a global class (or FM in the worst case) and call it instead of standard FM in the custom programs. While at it, also replace REUSE... FM with SALV, version permitting.
