Authorization Object: S_SPO_ACT

Spool: Actions

Category: Print and Output Management



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
spool requests.
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).
