How to include an authorization group restriction in an SAP query

Some reports can be sensitive and should be protected. Here's a quick method for restricting access for unauthorized users.

The field 'authorization group' allows you to enter an authorization group up to eight characters long. If you...

specify an authorization group, it is inherited as an attribute by every report generated for a query via this InfoSet. This means that only users authorized in their user master records to execute programs from this authorization group can execute these queries. Authorization groups thus provide a way of protecting reports generated by the query from unauthorized execution.

In SQ02: Change InfoSet > Goto Global Properties > Enter in Authorization group
In SQ01: Query > More functions > Generate program
