ACCESS CONTROL | AUTHORIZATION MANAGEMENT FOR SAP®
Reset Manually Maintained Organisation Levels to Roles
With the SAP NetWeaver 7.03 and 7.30 releases, Web Dynpro ABAP applications (as well as other Web Dynpro ABAP functions, see SAP Note 1413011) have been tested for permission to launch such applications. The authorization object that controls this startup permission is S_START. This authorization object is used in the same way as the S_TCODE authorization object.
The path with the associated permission group DEVL contains the local temporary files of the ABAP Frontend Editor of the ABAP development environment (transactions SE38, SE80, SE24, etc.). The two paths with the ADMN permission group show how logically related paths can be grouped into a S_PATH permission check. The two entries with the FILE permission group show how paths for Windows can be completed in systems with application servers of different operating systems. The core.sem and coreinfo entries are required to write run-time errors in the SNAP snapshot table. The dev_ and gw_ entries allow you to view files from the developer trace and Gateway Log in the ST11 transaction. If the suggestion in the first entry of the table is too restrictive, you can choose the alternative in the following table. This entry only forces a permission check on S_PATH and the ALL permission group; You should, however, only grant such permission very restrictively.

In addition to SAP standard software, do you also use custom ABAP programmes? Learn how the SAP Code Vulnerability Analyser can scan your customer code for potential security vulnerabilities and resolve them if necessary. Permission concepts, firewalls, anti-virus and encryption programmes alone are not enough to protect your IT infrastructure and IT systems against internal and external attacks and misuse. Some of the risks are identified by potential security vulnerabilities in the ABAP code, most of which cannot be addressed by downstream measures and therefore need to be addressed in the code itself. It should also be noted that the permission concepts used can be circumvented by ABAP code, which underlines the weight of security vulnerabilities in the ABAP code. While SAP is responsible for providing security information to help close security vulnerabilities in standard code, it is up to you to address security vulnerabilities in custom ABAP programmes. Companies are subject to a whole range of legal requirements on data protection and data integrity, and you can fulfil them as far as possible with the help of a new tool. The SAP Code Vulnerability Analyser is integrated into the ABAP Test Cockpit (ATC) and thus available in all ABAP editors such as SE80, SE38, SE24, etc. Developers can use it to scan their code for vulnerabilities during programming and before releasing their tasks. This reduces testing costs and costs.
You can access the ABAP Test Cockpit from the context menu of the object to be checked via Verify > ABAP Test Cockpit. Note that the global check variant of the Code Inspector that you created in the transaction SCI and that is entered as the default in the transaction ATC (ATC configuration) includes the security tests of the extended programme check of the SAP Code Vulnerability Analyser.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.
Assign tables or views to a table authorization group using transaction SE11 or SE54.
The authorization objects are attached by analogy to the forecast and item-based reports.
