Find SAP Roles for Missing Authorization using SU53 & SUIM

ABAP developer and SAP professional can identify roles required for missing authorization using SU53 and SUIM transactions easily. This tutorial shows methods to search and find missing SAP roles for specific authorization data.

Recently when I tried to launch SAP transaction code RSRT2, I got an unauthorized error message:
You are not authorized to use transaction RSRT2

Then to check the required authorizations, I executed SU53 SAP transaction.

As seen in below SAP SU53 transaction screenshot, I can see that the authorization object is S_RS_COMP.
Only RSZCOMPTP authorization field has REP value to filter for the corresponding role.

Using the authorization object and authorization field values, I can try to figure required roles for the SAP transaction.

Launch SUIM (User Information System) transaction.
Under root node User Information System, drill down to Roles > Roles by Complex Selection Criteria > Search for Single Roles with Authorization Data

SAP user information system transaction SUIM

Execute the node "Search for Single Roles with Authorization Data" using the execute icon

When the search screen is displayed, enter the Authorization Object name which we already know from SU53 logs in the "Selection by Authorization Values" section.
