Top 5 Common Dummy Authorization Checks in ST01

Below is a list of the top 5 common dummy authorization checks that you will come across in transaction ST01. For those who are unfamiliar with transaction ST01, from a SAP security perspective, transaction ST01 is primarily used to identify authorization errors a specific user is hitting.

This is useful when the SU53 screenshot is not helpful. The SU53 screenshot only gives you the last authorization error that had occurred even when there are multiple authorization errors and/or if the actual error occurred way before the most recent error.

The dummy authorizations listed below should almost always not be assigned to the business users.
