    Hi Sagar,

    Please follow the below procedure to add a field to an existing auth. object.

    1. Run transaction SU21.

    2. Double click on the authorization object you desire to modify.

    3. In the pop up window, click 'F5'.

    4. Go to "Authorization fields", click on an empty field and then press F4.

    5. Double click on authorization field that you want to add, it will be added into the authorization object .

    6. Click Save button.

    Thanks,

    Saby..

    Hi,

    you have to perform the 'where used' check first (pops up automatically when changing to edit mode), then it will work.

    Here's the info from the pop-up information dialog

    Creating and changing authorization objects Note that when creating authorization objects, the structure of the object must be planned exactly. Changes to the structure are very complicated. If, for example, you want to change authorization fields for an object, this is only possible after all authorizations the object uses and all calls of the AUTHORITY-CHECK language commands have been deleted. o The authorization object must be deleted and recreated, if you want to remove fields from the object. o You can add authorization fields to the object if the object is no longer used. Only then can the corresponding fields accept data.

    Hope it helps.

    Gp.
