Define Check of Information Access for Financial Programs and Accounting Dimensions

This document explains how you set the rules for accessing information in the financial system.


Programs within the financial system are included in the authorization check routine. For each program, the accounting dimensions to be checked are selected.

When you start one of the included programs, the accounting identity used for the selected dimension is automatically checked against the object access group in 'Accounting Identity. Open' (CRS630/F) to verify that the user is authorized.

The parameter file (CSYTAB), key AACH, is updated.
