In today’s knowhow post, I will show you ways around the authorization system in SAP ERP. Using these hints, you will be able to execute SAP transactions without the authorization to do it.
Disclaimer: Circumventing the authorization concept of your SAP system is a bad thing, and if you get caught you might be punished by your boss and/or system administrator. Do not use these tricks in a production SAP system!
The function module AUTH_CHECK_TCODE is used by many transactions to verify the validity of a transaction execution. If we have debugging rights on the SAP system of our choice, we can make use of this. Follow these steps:
IF sy-subrc = 0.
Moreover, if the above possibility does not work (the function module does not run always), you can try to execute the program directly. If the transaction you want to execute is a Report Transaction, this will work nicely. Execute the following steps.
If none of the above worked and you have access to SE37, SE38, SE80 or SE84, you can try the following programs and/or function modules. All of these basically execute CALL TRANSACTION without authorization checks, so you will get to the transaction you want. Here is the list.
Summing up, I hope one of these methods will help you in SAP to execute a transaction without authorization to do so. Please remember to not do anything disallowed with it.
