The most important authorization objects for project management are:

  • S_PROJ_GEN (general project functions, such as cross-system maintenance (SYST))
  • S_PROJECT (project work)
  • S_PROJECTS (project administration)
    For detailed documentation for individual authorization objects, call the documentation in the authorization maintenance.

These authorizations are in the following individual roles:
SAP_SOL_PROJ_ADMIN_ALL (full authorization)
SAP_SOL_PROJ_ADMIN_DIS (display authorization)

Note: You must adjust the roles according to your requirements.


The system administrator creates the system landscape for your project. The project manager maintains all other data for the project in project management. Your system administrator should not have access to other project data than the system landscape. They should use the value SYST for S_PROJECT 03 and S_PROJ_GEN.
