What is the Authorization Process Manager?

The Authorization Process Manager is an add-on module developed by Applicon Solutions. It targets SAP® customers who support the authorization role life cycle and are experiencing the traditional challenges that come along with it.

With the Authorization Process Manager, organizations will:

  • Ensure that projects are no longer blocked by authorization errors
  • Build roles to support the implemented business processes
  • Gain complete control of the authorization development process
  • Reduce cost and time (ROI 9-12 months)

Ensure that projects are no longer blocked by authorization errors

Authorization errors that normally block test cases for hours every time they occur waste precious time, generate risks, and build frustrations in projects. With the Authorization Process Manager, the authorization specialists and the authorization testers can work independently and report changes and errors in a new, simple and intuitive way.


With the test container functionality, the user can report authorization errors and still continue his work, because the missing authorization is added to the user's test container. Afterwards, the authorization specialist can evaluate if missing authorization is needed in a role. Consequently, the user does not have to wait for the authorization specialist to update the role. In addition, the authorization team can now simply wait until the entire test of roles is completed and execute all required role updates in just one complete process flow, thereby saving a tremendous amount of time.

Build your roles to support the implemented business processes

By using the test container, it is easy to involve the line of business to define roles without knowledge about authorization objects, field values or even specific business related values at the design stage. Authorization Process Manager documents the exact values missing in the role thereby making role development easier, quicker, transparent and accurate. Furthermore, the authorization team is not delayed due to limited access to business information or technical information.

Gain complete control of the authorization development process

With the Authorization Process Manager, you can obtain full control of authorization development. Based on system trace reporting, you can have the exact status of the test at any given time and be on top of the situation from the first day all the way through to go-live.

  • Structure and prioritize all incoming authorization errors
  • Run analyses in order to quickly identify required corrections
  • Execute the corrections
  • Real time reporting on the authorization corrections and test execution

A proven successful investment

Implementing Authorization Process Manager shows ROI in 1 year or less. In authorization projects, ROI can be as low as 2-3 months by significantly reducing the resources required and achieving much higher quality of the result.
