If the authorization object includes a setting permitting automatic conversion, the conversion will be executed when authorization data is entered that matches the conversion attributes of the corresponding authorization field. This means that when creating authorizations, a number can be entered directly (instead of "0002" for "Edit", you can just enter "2", for example). When the authorizations are saved, the number is automatically converted to "0002". This is necessary, as the language command AUTHORITY-CHECK checks the value "0002".
