Authorization Objects - SAP User Rights

To use ERPConnect you need an SAP connection user with sufficient authorization in SAP. Authorizations are assigned via authorization objects in SAP. Redirect this page to your SAP Basis administrators to get the relevant authorization objects for your SAP connection user.

The authorizations in the section General authorization objects are required to establish an SAP connection with the SAP application server. The required authorizations for each feature / SAP object are listed in their respective section.

SAP Authorization Profiles

Theobald Software collected and combined the necessary authorizations for all features / SAP objects into SAP roles. You can download the SAP profiles and upload them to your SAP system:

Feature / SAP Object SAP Role File
General Authorization Objects ZXTGENERAL.SAP
BAPI ZXTBAPI.SAP
BW Cube ZXTQUERY.SAP
Query ZXTQUERY.SAP
Table ZXTABLE.SAP

Note

If you still get an authorization error, ask SAP Basis to record an ST01-/ or SU53-authorization trace in SAP. This trace shows which authorizations objects are missing.

XXXX (stands for a placeholder) is the authorization group for the table. To determine, which authorization group belongs to which table, check the table TDDAT - Maintenance Areas for Tables. If the table is not listed, the authorization group is &NC&. For authorizing specific tables use authorization object S_TABU_NAM instead of S_TABU_DIS.
