Redesign of SAP® Authorizations
By inserting SAP Note 1723881, you resolve the third of these problems by banning the recording of the same role on different transport orders. To enable this change in system behaviour, you must set the CLIENT_SET_FOR_ROLES customising switch to YES in the PRGN_CUST table. This toggles the setting in the SCC4 transaction for changing and recording custom customising objects ("Client modifiability") for role maintenance.
You can also monitor security alerts from the Security Audit Log via the Alert Monitoring of your Computing Centre Management System (CCMS). The security warnings generated correspond to the audit classes of the events defined in the Security Audit Log. Many companies also have the requirement to present the events of the Security Audit Log in other applications. This requires evaluation by external programmes, which can be done via the XML Metadata Interchange (XMI) BAPIs. You must follow the XMI interface documentation to configure it. You can also use the RSAU_READ_AUDITLOG_ EXTERNAL sample programme as a template. A description of this programme can be found in SAP Note 539404.
Authorizations are assigned to users in SAP systems in the form of roles. The goal is to create a system that is as secure as possible and to keep the complexity and number of roles as low as possible. This is the only way to achieve a balanced cost-benefit ratio.
SOS reports can be very comprehensive. In particular, if the Whitelists are not yet maintained, reporting volumes of up to 200 pages are not uncommon. Do not be discouraged in such a case, but start by cleaning up a manageable amount of critical SOS results. You can then edit the further results in several rounds. The AGS recommends which critical SOS results you should consider first; You can find these in the AGS Security Services Master slide set in the SAP Service Marketplace Media Library.
Assigning a role for a limited period of time is done in seconds with "Shortcut for SAP systems" and allows you to quickly continue your go-live.
A note box in which data of all kinds can be quickly filed and retrieved. This is what Scribble Papers promises. At first, the program looks very spartan. But once a small structure is in place, you realise the great flexibility of this little helper.
You can select here whether only SAP standard applications or customer or partner applications should be considered.
Developers can use it to scan their code for vulnerabilities during programming and before releasing their tasks.
