Organisationally restrict table editing permissions
Dissatisfaction and unclear needs in the process
The applications (transactions, Web-Dynpro applications, RFC building blocks, or Web services) are detected through their startup permissions checks (S_TCODE, S_START, S_RFC, S_SERVICE) and can be placed in the role menu of your role. In your role, go to the Menu tab and import these applications by clicking Apply Menus and selecting Import from Trace. A new window will open. Here you can evaluate the trace and view all recognised applications in the right window. To do this, click the Evaluate Trace button and select System Trace (ST01) > Local. In a new System Trace window, you can specify the evaluation criteria for the trace, such as the user using the Trace field only for users or the time period over which to record. Then click Evaluate.

The evaluation performance of the Security Audit Log was optimised from SAP NetWeaver 7.31. For this extension, you need a kernel patch. For the fixes and an overview of the required support packages, see SAP Note 1810913.
Maintain table permission groups
Critical permissions are permissions that allow you to view or modify security-related configurations in the SAP system, or perform activities that are critical from a legal or business perspective. This also includes access to sensitive data, which are e.g. personal. Critical permissions are really critical in themselves and pose a risk only if they get into the wrong hands. In any case, when using critical permissions, you should observe the principle of restricting rights. There are no general definitions of risk; Therefore, each company should define the compliance requirements for itself. Identifying critical SAP permissions is an important task and should be performed in every company. Particular attention should be paid not only to the award of transactions but also to the value characteristics of each of the eligible objects. It is important to mention that preventive regular inspections do not have to be burdensome. However, they will lead to greater transparency and security.

After successful implementation of your permission check, the new authorization object for your application must be maintained in transaction SU24. If your solution is distributed in other system landscapes, the authorisation proposals in the transaction SU22 are maintained. In addition, with the permission proposal value maintenance, you can make sure that the new authorization object is not forgotten in a role system, because it is now loaded automatically into the PFCG role when the application is called up via the role menu. In the final step, the permission administrator can create the PFCG role or must remix the existing PFCG roles.

However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".

The freeware Scribble Papers puts an end to the confusing paper chaos. The tool is also suitable for storing, structuring and quickly finding text documents and text snippets of all kinds in addition to notes.

If you use multiple clients, you should note that the organisation levels and the proposed permissions are client-independent data, whereas the roles and profiles in question are client-dependent.

The second example requires additional permission checks to display certain documents in the FBL*N transactions.
