SAP FICO Authorizations
Without generic table logging, certain changes in the system are not traceable. Learn how to turn on table logging in the system for a large set of tables. The SAP system writes change documents for most changes - but not all. Specifically, changes to tables in which the customising is performed are not recorded in the modification documents. This may lead to a lack of comprehensibility of changes. Avoid this by basically enabling table logging and then setting logging for specific additional tables. You should always enable table logging for all clients. However, during a release upgrade it may be necessary to temporarily disable table logging.
However, the permission trace is a long-term trace that you can turn on using the auth/authorisation_trace dynamic profile parameter. This trace is user- and client-independent. In the USOB_AUTHVALTRC table, the trace supplements the permissions checks that were not captured before the application ran. This function can also be used for customer-specific developments. Now, go to the RZ11 transaction, enter the auth/authorisation_trace parameter name in the selection box, and click View. You will now get to the detailed view of the profile parameter with all properties and the link to a documentation. To turn the trace on, click Change Value and a pop-up window will open. Enter "Y" or "F" for filters here if you want to define a filter (see Tip 38, "Use SU22 and SU24 transactions correctly") and save your input. A warning appears informing you that the parameter value would be reset when the application server is launched.
Security within the development system
If the security advice change affects normal programme flow, you should schedule application tests. If only exceptional treatments are adjusted, you can omit or severely limit the test.
HR authorizations are a very critical issue in many companies. On the one hand, HR administrators should be able to perform their tasks - on the other hand, the protection of employees' personal data must be ensured. Any error in the authorization system falls within the remit of a company's data protection officer.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.

Many innovations make this work easier and make the whole process more transparent.
