The authorization group enables you protect access to certain objects.

In order to carry out a specific activity, the user must have authorization for the combination of the activity and the authorization group.

Supplementary Documentation - BEGRU 0001


The authorization for activities (such as create, change, delete) is assigned in the Document Management System, and is dependent upon the document type.

In addition, you can limit the ability to edit certain documents by using the authorization group.

By entering an authorization group, you can ensure that only users, who have the required authorization in their user profile, are able to edit the document.

You can enter a reason for the multiplication factor in a number of ways:

  • Manual entry

    Enter the reason manually. If the input field is not long enough, go to the SAPscript text editor. To do this, double-click the input field.

  • Entry by key

    Enter the special character and the desired key, and then press ENTER. The system replaces the key with the defined reason.

    If you do not know the key, you can choose it from the input help.



You can only enter reasons using keys if you created the keys in Customizing for IS-H and assigned the corresponding texts to them.
