Best Practices Benefit from PFCG Roles Naming Conventions
Copy values from the Clipboard to the transaction's PFCG permission fields
Additional permission check on the S_RZL_ADM authorization object: For security reasons, an additional permission check is performed on the S_RZL_ADM authorization object for special PSE (Personal Security Environment) files with access type 01 (Create). These files are called *.pse and cred_v2. These files are required for single sign-on, encryption and digital signatures. They are maintained using the transaction STRUST and the transaction STRUSTSSO2, which require the same permission (see SAP Note 1497104 for details).
Are you already using BAPIs in user care? For example, you can use them to set up a password reset self service. We show you how to do this and what you need to pay attention to. Especially with large system landscapes and systems that are only sporadically used, users often forget their password. Strengthened password rules (e.g. to change a password regularly or to require certain character types to be used), which are supposed to serve security, do their part. Forgotten passwords and the frequently resulting user locks are unfortunately often lost to the user when access to a system is most needed. Unlocking a user and assigning a new password is rarely done in real time, even with large 24-hour support service departments. This problem, which I am sure you are familiar with, does not exactly promote employee satisfaction and productivity. A self-service that uses the Business Application Programming Interfaces (BAPIs) can counteract this.
AUTHORIZATIONS IN SAP SYSTEMS
Do you want to automatically monitor the security settings of your systems and receive convenient evaluations? We will explain how to use configuration validation. If you have a large SAP system landscape in use, the control of the many different security settings can be complex. You define your security requirements for the entire SAP system landscape; they concern, for example, the settings of the profile parameters, the handling of safety instructions or critical permissions that may only be assigned to emergency users. You can define these requirements in the SAP Solution Manager Configuration Validation application and evaluate compliance with these requirements in all systems.
However, there is also the situation that eligibility fields are collected at organisational levels. If these permission fields have already been filled with values in the PFCG roles, you must refill these organisation levels after categorising the permission fields as organisation levels. The PFCG_ORGFIELD_ROLES report helps you to do this, which matches all the roles with the organisation level fields, i.e. with the permission fields maintained in the organisation level fields.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
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.
To do this, look for SAP hints about the BC-UPG-NA component in the system recommendations.
Even if you find the email address in the AD, we advise you not to send the email from there.
