About #

The Theobald Software custom function module Z_XTRACT_IS_REMOTE_REPORT enables the extractions of reports from SAP systems. If no authorization group is assigned to a report, Z_XTRACT_IS_REMOTE_REPORT uses a custom authorization object Z_TS_PROG to verify whether the SAP user is allowed to extract a report.
The access to reports is granted based on the name of the report.
