    Are you refering to the "Reference User" field on the roles tab?

    • Hi Arthur,

      found something:

      http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70/helpdata/EN/52/671191439b11d1896f0000e8322d00/frameset.htm

      Saying:

      This function allows the application developers to assign a business object to a user, to, for example, display this useru2019s own data. In transaction SU01, it is used only for display.

      A table appears in which you can assign business object types to a user. An object type is a description of data (objects) used in the system, created at definition time in the Business Object Builder. An object is any type of connected information that is addressed with a unique key; such as master data (customer, material, vendor, and so on).

      The possible entries help for the Object type field lists all available object types.

      This function is not the same as assigning reference users on the Roles tab page.

      This is another example where user administration only provides the possibility of maintenance of data, which is not belonging to user administration (like personalization data). Unfortunately I don't know where those references are used (propably CRM-ISA does).

      b.rgds,

      Bernhard

    Hi,

    This query is related to the BASIS/ SECURITY People. This is not related to the ABAP Stuff.

    Thanks,

    Only (short) doc im aware of

    You can assign business object types to a user in a table. An object type is a description of data (objects) used in the system, created at definition time in the Business Object Builder. Object types include:

    - Documents (invoices, purchase requisition, applications, etc.)

    - Master data (customer, material, vendor, etc.)

    - Transaction data (order, quotation, etc.)

    An object is any kind of set of information which can be addressed uniquely with an identifying key.

    The possible entries help for the Object type field lists all object types.

    Regards
