Examples of a Job Log Authorization Issue
  • RFC_READ_TABLE of [TABLE_NAME]. Error: NOT_AUTHORIZED
  • RFC_READ_TABLE of E070. Error: NOT_AUTHORIZED
  •  <ETL_JOBLOG ORDER="00212" DATE="20161123" TIME="101144" MESSAGE="Extraction of AGR_USERS from PANAYA_HRP failed. Error: NOT_AUTHORIZED"/>

  4. In the upper menu, select Utilities (1) and then Table Maintenance Generator (2)
  5. Take note of the Authorization Group

  7. Run the extractor
