If the processing type of a variable is set to "Authorization", the variable is automatically filled with the values of the user's authorizations. When the user opens a query, the data is selected automatically according to his or her authorizations. This processing type can be used for both characteristic value variables and node variables.
Please note that it is a prerequisite to have authorization-values maintained in transaction RSECADMIN and assigned to the user. The authorization concept is described in the WIKI-page "".
