Two Simple methods to Analysis Authorization Issues

In this document we will learn about two different methods to identify authorization issues.

  1. SU53 or /nSU53
  2. ST01

SU53 or /nSU53

     Using this transaction you can analyze an access denied error in your system that just occurred. It displays the last failed authorization check, the user’s authorization and the failed HR authorization check.


User gets an authorization error on releasing a notification from IW22 transaction



On clicking the release icon, users gets below error message

Authorization Object Authorization Field Authorization Field Values
QMART                M1

These values can be used in SUIM transaction to identify the roles which you can assign to user.


          ST01 is one of the primary tools in the SAP Security Module. ST01 gives us a peek inside running ABAP program or standard transaction to record the SAP Authorization checks in your own or external system. The trace records each authorization objects, along with the object’s fields and the values tested.


          User is having access to perform “Do not Execute” in the work order, need to restrict the user with the functionality.

This particular access cannot be captured via SU53


When the Work order is in CRTD status, system will allow you to set “Do Not Execute” from the Path Order – Functions – Complete – Do not Execute


To identify the access provide to this user, you can identify via Trace
