Rebuilding the authorization concept
Customise evaluation paths in SAP CRM for indirect role mapping
It is important for consolidated financial statements to have the same number range in the G/L account masters in different company codes. This is ensured by the tools in the FI module. In addition, the master records can be adjusted so that it is possible to work with the different currencies of the company codes across countries.
After defining the roles and generating the corresponding authorization profiles, the individual persons in the company are then assigned to the roles. In the process, the so-called user comparison takes place and the role-specific authorizations are stored in the user master record. The master record contains all information about an SAP user, including authorizations.

The authorization objects are attached by analogy to the forecast and item-based reports. The authorization objects of the item-based reports are checked in addition to the authorization objects for the information system when the report is selected. There is a trick in maintaining the CO-PA-specific authorization objects, because a once selected result area is set for the entire session of your login. This is of course hindering the maintenance of authorization objects for different result areas. Therefore, simply change the result area in the Customising window using the following path: Controlling > Income and market segment accounting > Structures > Set result area.
You can find the evaluation methods in table T77AW. A valid evaluation method for our example is US_ACTGR. To assign the roles indirectly, the following requirements are required: Organisational management must be active, i.e. you must have defined an active plan variant in the client. To be able to use the employee-user connection in a SAPERP-HCM system, Info Type 0105 (Communication) and Subtype 0001 (User ID) must be maintained. To enable role management via organisational management, you must set the HR_ORG_ACTIVE switch in the PRGN_CUST table to YES in the Customising.
The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
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.
Here you can also assign manually created permission profiles from the transaction SU02 - even without direct role mapping.
