Archive change document management for user and permission management

The setting of the modification flag used to determine the proposed values to be matched is imprecise. Learn about a new process that uses timestamps. Upgrade rework for suggestion values and roles must be performed not only upon release change, but also after inserting plug-ins, support packages, enhancement packages, or other software components, such as partner solutions. These rework can be complex if the underlying selection of proposed values cannot be restricted. Therefore, a new procedure has been introduced in the transaction SU25, which restricts the proposed values to be compared using a time stamp.
The assignment of roles does not include any special features. Therefore, we only deal with the topics of time-space delimitation and logging. Time-space validation is implemented as an additional filter that runs after the usual permission checks. This additional filter logic works as follows: The first step is to check whether the user is entered in the tax verifier table (Table TPCUSERN, Configuration with the transaction TPC2). Only then will the further tests be carried out. If not, no additional checks will be carried out. The programme is then checked to see if it is included in the table of allowed programmes (table TPCPROG, configuration with the transaction TPC4). If the check is negative, the system cancels with a permission error. The time-space check is performed against the valid intervals in the table TPCDATA (configuration with the transaction TPC6). The time-space check works in context: In addition to the supporting documents of the audit period, older supporting documents are also included if they are still relevant for the audit period, such as open items that were booked in previous years but only settled in the audit period. Records that do not fall into the valid period according to the logic described above are filtered out.
Centrally review failed authorisation checks in transaction SU53
Authorization tools are a great help in designing a highly automated compliance management system that precisely fits the company's own requirements. The introduction of authorization tools takes some time, but should nevertheless be tackled by companies in order to increase efficiency in the long term and save costs at the same time.
The SU10 transaction, as the user administrator, helps you maintain bulk user master records. You can now also select the user data by login data. You're probably familiar with this. You have blocked users, for example, so that a support package can be included. Some users, such as administrators, are not affected. For collective unlocking, you only want to select users with an administrator lock. The mass maintenance tool for users in the transaction SU10 is available for this purpose. This transaction allows you to select by user and then perform an action on all selected users. Until now, users could only be selected by address data and permission data.
However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".
So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? Scribble Papers is a "note box" that makes this very easy.
In this process in particular, it is crucial that a clear dual control principle is established, which ensures that the developer is not also the person who ultimately carries out the transport into the productive environment.
Use an organisation chart to visualise the employee structure of the company or department for which you are to assign roles.
