FMRP_RW_BUDCON - Authorization

Hi All,

We want to control the way the Budget Consumption Report (FMRP_RW_BUDCON) is viewed by different users. The users from the respective Funds Centers must be able to view only their budget through the selection at the start.

For that we used an Authorization Group when creating the Funds Centers. Say, a Fund Center called PRODUCTION, has the Authorization Group "PRODUCTION" defined in it. Similarly we did the same for the other Fund Centers. (We did not define the Authorization Group anywhere else - not sure if we need to).

Then for a particular user, who works in the Production department, we used the Authorization Object "F_FICA_CTR" and in it, we gave activity as '03' and Funds Center as "PRODUCTION".

This in turn led to other authorization objects like "F_FICA_FKR", "F_FICA_VER", "F_FMBU_ACC" and "F_FMBU_VER", all of which we added manually.

In F_FMBU_ACC, we were asked for Funds Center Authorization, which we gave as "PRODUCTION" and Fund Authorization Group which we again gave as "PRODUCTION". This is because, we want this user to see the budget value allocated and spent in FMRP_RW_BUDCON, just for "PRODUCTION" department and not for others.

After doing all these, we are still able to see the budget for other departments too from this user-ID.

Can any of you suggest what are we missing, and how we can have the user just to see his own department from FMRP_RW_BUDCON tcode ?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Raj,

    I suggest you to check the authorizations available for FMRP_RW_BUDCON in transaction SU24.

    Also, please check the following menu path in your IMG:

    PSM -> Funds Management Government -> Basic Setting -> Authorization check -> Activate Old authorization check.

    • check if you have flagged to use the old authorization check.

    Now, please check the documentation available in the same menu path (the button in front of the line 'Activate Old authorization check'). I copied a part of this documentation below, but please read all the information available there:


    Check Old Authorization Objects

    If you activate the old authorization objects, the following objects are used for the authorization check:

    F_FICB_FPS Cash budget management/Funds Management commitment item

    F_FICA_FTR Funds Management FM account assignment

    F_FICA_CTR Funds Management funds center

    F_FICA_WCT Funds Management funds center internal

    F_FICA_CCT Funds Management cross-funds center

    F_FICA_FCD Funds Management fund

    These objects were referred to for the authorization check in Funds Management (FI-FM) up until release 46C.

    Therefore if you are using authorization object F_FICA_CTR for example, you must flag the customizing above otherwise your authorization checks will not work.

    In addition, authorization object for funds center group is F_FICA_FSG - Funds Management: authorization group for the funds


    I hope this helps.

    Best Regards,
