0TCAIPROV vs. 0TCAIFAREA

Hi

I am trying to understand, what the difference is between authorizing on the hierarchy of 0TCAIPROV and authorizing on 0TCAIFAREA (which is an external hierarchy for 0INFOPROV).

Can anyone try to explain the difference and when to use what?

Kind regards

Morten Ellgaard

    Hello ,

    Below are some points which will help you to understand the concept.

    The InfoArea (0TCAIFAREA) is acting as a external hierarchy to the InfoProviders (0TCAIRPOV), and can hence be used to authorize whole InfoAreas.

    S_RS_COMP can be used for the objects (in general queries) in a certain InfoArea for the usage in the query designer, whereas 0TCAIFAREA can be used to protect the data contained in a certain InfoArea / InfoProvider area.

    0TCAIFAREA: InfoObject to design hierarchical authorisation on the data (contents) within an InfoArea (structuring means for InfoProvider in the DataWarehousing Workbench).

    Thanks
