Checking at Program Level with AUTHORITY-CHECK
Lack of definition of an internal control system (ICS)
I will go into more detail on the subject of further training in the SAP environment at the next opportunity. As a small anticipation, I may refer here to some SAP blogs on the subject of SAP Basis or also the VideoPodcast "RZ10 LIVE SAP BASIS AND SECURITY" from rz10.de picks up topics in the area of authorizations again and again and is instructive here :-).
Now maintain the permissions and organisation levels. If possible, use organisational level values in the note, which you can find well in other numbers later on, i.e. about 9999 or 1234. After generating and saving the role, you will be returned to eCATT. There you will be asked if you want to accept the data and confirm with Yes. You have now successfully recorded the blueprint. Now the slightly trickier part follows: The identification of the values to be changed at mass execution. In the editor of your test configuration, the record you created is located at the bottom of the text box. We can now execute the test script en masse with any input. We need a test configuration for this. In the example Z_ROLLOUT_STAMMDATEN, enter a corresponding name and click the Create Object button. On the Attribute tab, specify a general description and component. On the Configuration tab, select the test script you created earlier in the corresponding field. Then click the Variants tab. The variants are the input in our script. Since we do not know the format in which eCATT needs the input values, it is helpful to download it first. To do this, select External Variants/Path and click Download Variants. A text file is now created under the appropriate path, containing the desired format with the input parameters. Open the data with Microsoft Excel and set your target value list. To do so, delete the line *ECATTDEFAULT. In the VARIANT column, you can simply use a sequential numbering. Save the file in text format, not in any Excel format.
Limitations of authorization tools
Authorization tools in the SAP GRC Suite ensure that every company can design a highly automated compliance management system that fits exactly. The majority of German companies with an SAP system do not yet use authorization tools. However, the use of SAP authorization tools is a great advantage for many companies. The extent to which the use of authorization tools makes sense depends on the size of a company.
Roles are assigned according to the function of employees in the company and their validity is limited depending on the task. Removing role assignments manually in user master kits is very tedious. We'll show you how it's easier. Over time, users of your SAP system have accumulated many roles in the user master set. These roles have different validity periods. Some roles have already expired, and other roles may be assigned multiple times, because a user might perform multiple roles in the organisation, some of which have the same roles. Now you are looking for an easy way to delete role assignments that have expired or to remove multiple role assignments.
During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.
The freeware Scribble Papers is a "note box" in which all kinds of data can be stored. It takes in typed texts as well as graphics and entire documents. The data is then organised in folders and pages.
The SAVEFLAG = X switch defines that these files will be included in a backup procedure; however, this is not relevant for the permission award.
Before you start and define critical permissions, you should identify your core business processes or functions and then map the conflicting processes in meaningful combinations as so-called risk.
