How to copy an authorization object

Hi Experts,

I want to copy an authorization object in tx su21 but I can´t find the way to do it.

On the other hand, could it have the programs associated to the original object?

Regards.

    What do you mean by 'copy'? If you want to create a new object with the same fields but a different name what is wrong with just creating it?

    On the other hand, could it have the programs associated to the original object?

    Nope, all checks refer to the name of the original objects and you cannot have two objects with the same name.

    Maybe you can enlighten us on your real requirement so we can think along with you.

      That is generally good advise.

      > However I think my question was not clear enough.

      There might be a language barrier here as well, in which case I apologize for my comment but still recommend some training and reading the documentation.

      For example in transaction ABAPDOCU you can click on the yellow "?" button and then type "AUTHORITY-CHECK" into the keyword field and hit enter. It is well explained there.

      Cheers,

    NO. There is no such option exist in SAP to copy an exiting Object. This is also not at per the Authorization concept if you think yourself to provide copy option for copying an aithorization object.

    On the other hand, could it have the programs associated to the original object?

    Authorization Objects are not the representation of some programs, rather they are used in the programs with some specific Program statements to check the fields defined in the Object which are being availed through the dynamic program as per the screen design and the values collected during runtime whether these values are supposed to be available for the online user id in use at that moment.

    A suggestion is to go through the " Authorization Made Easy" book (available in SMP). Also try to attend the ADM courses for Security.

    I think you need to read the documentation on several doubts and should be restricted to display only until you have attended some training...

    Just being honest.

    Cheers,

      Julius I have no comments for you to be honest. Otherwise I am not going to do anything until I'm shure of what I'm doing.
