Efficient SAP rollout through central, tool-supported management

This approach makes authorization management considerably more efficient, since functional changes do not have a global impact on the entire authorization structure. This ensures the quality of authorizations in the long term. Authorizations in SAP systems enable users to access the applications relevant to their activities. To ensure that processes are mapped securely and correctly, SAP authorizations must be regularly checked and reworked.
SAP*: The SAP* user is part of the SAP kernel, and since it is hard-coded in the SAP system, it does not require a user master set. If there is no user master set for SAP*, anyone can log on to the SAP system after rebooting with this user, as the default password will then apply. The user thus has access to all functions, since Authority Checks in this case do not take effect. You can prevent this behaviour by setting the login/no_automatic_user_sapstar profile parameter to 1. If you want to copy clients, you have to set this parameter to 0 again before you do so, because the user SAP* is required for this. Safeguard measures: Despite the parameter setting, the SAP user should have a user master set in all clients. However, you should remove all profiles and lock the user. In addition, change the password, assign the user to the SUPER user group, and log it with the Security Audit Log.

The Three Lines of Defense model is used to systematically approach risks that may arise in companies. It integrates operational controls as well as risk management, information security, and internal auditing. It can be used to assess and classify the risks arising from SAP authorizations. The monitoring of risks is incorporated into the processes, so that there is constant control by various bodies. This reduces the risks considerably and ensures a clean authorization assignment.
Our example role MODELING makes it clear that it is possible to assign different types of privilege to a role. The SAP HANA Studio shows you in the administration interface which user (the so-called grantor) has assigned the respective privilege to this role (granted). By filtering and sorting, you can optimise the appearance of the role content. Depending on the type of privilege, you will be presented with the appropriate details by selecting an entry.
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.
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.
If the security advice change affects normal programme flow, you should schedule application tests.
After you select the audit, the audit tree will appear in the cockpit.
