SAP Authorizations - A Common Perspective of Developers and Consultants
This advanced functionality of the transaction SU53 is delivered via a patch. Please refer to SAP Note 1671117 for more information on the required support packages and technical background. Unsuccessful permission checks are now written to a ring buffer of the application server's Shared Memories. This will allow you to view failed permission checks in Web Dynpro applications or other user interfaces, which was not previously possible. Depending on the size of the ring buffer and system usage, up to 100 failed permissions checks per user can be displayed for the last three hours. The size of the ring buffer is calculated from the number of defined work processes. By default, 100 permission checks can be saved per workprocess. You can adjust this size using the auth/su53_buffer_entries profile parameter.
To create a authorization object, you must first select the result area and the form of the result invoice, whether calculating or accounting, for which you want to validate the authorization object. To do this, you must enter the name of the authorization object to be created and click the button (Next). You then set a text for the authorization object and select a maximum of ten permission fields for the object using the Fields button. Only a selection of the characteristics defined for the result area - and for the calculation of the result account also the value fields - is possible. You can now create different authorization objects for the key numbers and characteristics, or you can group the relevant fields into a authorization object. We advise you to define only one object with all relevant fields, as this will facilitate the maintenance of permissions. In our example, we created an accounting authorization object for the characteristics of the profit centre, distribution channel and work in the information system.
SAP Security Automation
SAP authorizations are a security-critical and thus an immensely important topic in companies. They are used not only to control the access options of users in the SAP system, but also the external and internal security of company data depends directly on the authorizations set.
Most client programmes are additions to the standard functionalities or variations of the same. Therefore, when you create your own programmes, you can follow the eligibility checks of the standard programmes or reuse the permissions checks used there.

To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.
This information may only be used with the involvement of a co-determination body of your organisation, since this information can of course also be derived from individual users for performance control purposes.
In this case, no value is reported in the Value column in the control centre.
