SAP Authorisation Objects Naming Convention

Print Friendly and PDF
The first letter of SAP authorisation objects is intelligently coded to represent the SAP module for which it belongs:
e.g. F_KNA1_BUK

A   Assets Accounting
C   Classification System
E   Consolidation
F   Financial Accounting
G   Special Ledger
K   Controlling
L   Logistic execution
M   Materials Management
P   Human Resources
S   Basis
V   Sales and Distribution


If the second character is an underline, then this indicates this authorisation object is a SAP standard one.

Use transaction SU03, SU21 or table TOBJ, to list the authorisation objects in the system and drill-down into the authorisation fields and their possible values.

If using the tables, you may need the other related tables to pull the texts: TOBJ, TOBC (classes), TOBJT.
