For ex:

User try to starts a transaction which he's no authorized and gets the message not authorized to transaction xxxx.

    SM20N/SM20 will show you what transactions a user has attempted to execute and if they recieved an authorization failure. The text will read "start of transaction XXXX failed (Reason=6)".

      Which release are you on?

      It is theoretically possible for a developer in the system to create a transaction "on the fly" and call it, so you would want the audit log to know about both, if it came to that.

      I agree that it would be nice to be able to distinguish between:

      - a real failed tcode check at tcode start itself.

      - a tcode called (successfully) using CALL TRANSACTION for which there is not SE97 relationship (this might explain your observation, if there is a "No Check" flag!)

      - a tcode which does not exist (anymore).
