Authorization concept of AS ABAP
What are SAP authorizations?
The context-dependent authorizations combine the general and structural authorizations and avoid situations like in the example above. The context-dependent authorizations can be separated so finely that a separation of functions can be made possible without any gaps. Basically, with context-dependent authorizations, the authorization objects are supplemented by structural authorization profiles. This means that authorizations are no longer assigned generally, but only for the objects in the authorization profile. The use of context-dependent authorizations means that the familiar P_ORGIN authorization objects are replaced by P_ORGINCON and P_ORGXX by P_ORGXXCON. The new authorization objects then contain a parameter for the authorization profile.

Now, if a user attempts to execute a report (for example, by using the KE30 transaction), the user's permissions for that authorization object are checked. Therefore, you must adjust your permission roles accordingly. If the user does not have permission to access the object, his request is rejected. If it has a corresponding permission, the display will be restricted to the permitted area. Access is still allowed for all characteristics or value fields that are not defined as fields of the authorization object.
Dissatisfaction and unclear needs in the process
You can view the change documents of the permission proposal maintenance using the report SU2X_SHOW_HISTORY (available with the support package named in the SAPHinweis 1448611). If the note is not implemented, use the USOBT_CD and USOBX_CD tables. We recommend that you run the SU24_AUTO_REPAIR correction report regularly. This report cleans up inconsistencies and adds missing modification flags in the transaction SU24 data that may turn up as errors when the transaction SU25 is executed. Read SAP Note 1539556 for this. Modification flags are added to the records in transaction SU24, if they have been modified by you. You can see these flags in the USOBT_C and USOBX_C tables.

Adapting business processes to legal requirements requires control of users and authorizations. Manage your compliance control permanently without risks. Manage users and their authorizations in all SAP systems centrally and efficiently with our solution for your SAP authorization management: Automatically generate authorization roles for users and assign them.

The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
