Introduction

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.

Good to Know

Note that when variables are filled automatically by authorizations, they do not have to be input ready, which means a variable screen does not need to appear when you execute the query or Web application. The user opens the query and only the authorized data is displayed without the user noticing the authorization variable restricting the query result.

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 "OLAP Authorizations".
