SAP Authorization, Profiles, Address

The R/3 authorization concepts permits the assignment of general or finely detailed user authorizations. These assignments can reach down to the transaction, field and field value level.  These authorizations are centrally administered in user master records and most allow the handling of certain R/3 components applicable to specific operations.  Actions by a user may required several authorizations.

For example, to change a material master record, authorizations are required for the :

RSUSR010 - Transaction Lists According to Selection With User, Profile or Object.
                       List of Transaction codes of the user.
