SAP Basis critical object : S_SPO_ACT
Thursday, April 2, 2009
Authorization to perform actions on spool requests protected with
authorization character strings.
Use in the system: Only checked if the explicit or implicit value in the
authorization attribute field of a spool request is not the same as the
user ID of the user accessing it.
The authorization is not checked if users access their own unprotected
Examples: Authorization is checked when users attempt to access the
spool request of another user. Authorization is not checked if users
attempt to delete their own spool request, and the authorization field
in the spool request is either initial or contains the user's ID.
The authorization is, therefore, mainly of interest for users who
administer spool requests in the output controller. These users must
access the spool requests of other users. This requires a S_SPO_ACT
(spool: actions) authorization, in addition to the spool administration
authorization (S_ADMI_FCD, system functions).
This object consists of the following fields:
Authorization field for spool actions: Operations permitted on
protected spool requests.
BASE: Check protected spool request in the output controller
(determine whether the spool request exists); display request
DISP: Display contents of a protected spool request
ATTR: Change attributes of protected spool request
AUTH: Change authorization value of a protected spool request
PRNT: Output protected request for the first time
REPR: Output protected spool request more than once
REDI: Redirect to another printer (of the same type). The printer
should be the same device type.
If used with ATTR, redirection to a different type of printer is
DELE: Manually delete request
USER: Change the owner
SEND: Send a request using SAPoffice
DOWN: Download a request
Value for the authorization check: Authorization value,for which the
user is authorized. The authorization value is set in the attributes
of the spool request.
A user is permitted to perform a spool action if the value stored for
this action in the user master matches the value in the authorization
field in the spool request. If no value is specified in the
authorization field of the spool request, all actions are permitted.
An authorization key can be entered at the time a spool request is
created, for example when a user selects Print. If no value is
specified, the spool system automatically uses the ID of the user
A user is always authorized for his or her own user ID and no
authorization check takes place in this case. This means that a user can
access his or her own spool requests without restriction unless an
authorization key is entered that does not match the user ID.
Users with the authorization value __USER__ can access all unprotected
requests for all users in the client according to the authorized action.
This authorization value is pre-defined and has the special meaning
described. It can no longer be used for other purposes.
With this authorization, a user can reprint all requests with an
authorization value beginning with FI.
Authorization field for
An additional authorization for S_SPO_DEV (spool: device authorizations)
for at least one printer is always required for the physical output of a
SAP Basis Critical Object : S_SPO_DEV
Authorization to use a specific printer or other output device.
The object consists of the field Spool: Output device.
In this field, enter the SAP names of the output devices for which a
user is to be authorized.
The value "LT*" authorizes a user to use all printers with beginning
with "LT" in spool administration.
