authorization check

Checks whether the current user has a certain authorization. For each authorization field of an authorization object, the system checks a value against the corresponding entries in the user master record. Check indicators are used to control whether an authorization check takes place. Authorization checks are either implicit, for example when calling programs, or explicit using the ABAP statement AUTHORITY-CHECK.
