Query Data from a Local Table
Dialogue user
In many SAP environments, there are historically grown authorization structures that cause unnecessary security gaps. These should be examined closely.

Note that the SAP_NEW_ individual profiles should be retained themselves, so that at any given time, traceability is ensured as to which release and which permission was added. For more information, see SAP Notes 20534, 28175, and 28186. SAP Note 1711620 provides the functionality of an SAP_NEW role that replaces the SAP_NEW profile. If you have added this note, the profile will no longer be used. Instead, you can generate your PFCG role SAP_NEW by using the REGENERATE_SAP_NEW report. When you call the report, in the source and target release selections, type in the appropriate fields, and the role is created for that release difference.
Permissions with Maintenance Status Used
It should be noted, however, that the system writes all authorization errors of the user into the memory area of SU53. I.e. if there is a so-called double hit, i.e. several authorization errors occur, only the last error is always in this area. I prefer to have the user run the transaction until the error message "No authorization...", then use the menu to display the error, and send me a screen shot of the first page of output. This way I avoid that the user creates another authorization error when calling transaction SU53, which covers the original one. As a user administrator or role administrator, you can also call SU53 yourself and display the error entry of another user via the menu. However, this does not always work.

No external services can be added manually in transaction SU24. To do this, you must turn on a permission trace that takes over. You can enable the permission trace using the auth/authorisation_trace dynamic profile parameter. You can enable this parameter by using the transaction RZ11 (Profile Parameter Maintenance) by entering the value Y as a new value and selecting the Switch to All Servers setting.

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".

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.

Identify the user master record in the Active Directory associated with the user ID that you are creating in the SU01 transaction.

Here you can import individual certificates by selecting the corresponding certificate in Certificate > Import Certificate.
