For an authorization concept, a clear goal must be defined that is to be achieved with the help of the concept. This should list which regulatory requirements the respective system and the associated authorization concept must take into account. In this way, the legal framework is defined, which is a legal necessity for successful implementation.
The SAP authorization concept ensures that no unauthorized access can be made to transactions, programs and services in SAP systems. To call up business objects or execute transactions in the SAP system, a user therefore requires the appropriate authorizations. When called, the application started via a transaction checks whether the authorization exists and whether the user is allowed to perform the selected operation.
The call to your implementation of the BAdIs is the last step in the process of storing user data. This applies to all transactions or function blocks that make changes to user data. Therefore, the BAdI is also called during maintenance by the BAPI BAPI_USER_CHANGE. You use this BAPI when you implement a password reset self-service as described in Tip 52, "Reset Passwords by Self-Service." This enables encrypted e-mail delivery of initial passwords within a self-service framework.
Furthermore, automation is possible with the help of a customer-specific ABAP programme. To do this, you should take a closer look at the AGR_TEXTS table. The table contains the different text blocks in different languages. Here we show you a section of the table with our example role Z_SE63. Short texts are assigned a value of 00000 in the column LINE, and long texts are assigned a value of 00001 to 0000x. The language keys are displayed in the SPRAS column. An ABAP programme now allows you to write the counterparts for the text fields in the target language into the fields in the tables.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
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.
A pop-up window to change the user or authorization object will appear from the Other User/Permissions Object (F5) menu path.
The context-dependent authorizations can be separated so finely that a separation of functions can be made possible without any gaps.
