Some user created a purchase requisition (PR) with ME51n transaction or via BAPI_PR_CREATE function module or via Fiori app. The PR's creation and saving was possible without any error.

Later another user tries to edit the PR with any of transaction or suitable BAPI or Fiori app.

But the editing fails with error: "Authorization missing for..." - MMPUR_REQ_COMMON 097

If you check SU53 transaction's authorization check log, you can see that not the user was validated for authorization who tried to change the PR but the user whose name is in SC_REQUESTOR field of EBAN database table.
