Service User
Grant permissions for SAP background processing
Each pass of the profile generator collects all the permission suggestions from the SU24 transaction to a transaction added through the role menu of the single role and checks the permissions to be added to the permission list. The following effect is to add transactions to a role when the added transaction is announced through the role menu of the role and various criteria are met.

With the introduction of security policy, it is now possible to define your own security policy for System or Service users. This way you can ensure that backward-compatible passwords are still used for these users. This eliminates the reason that password rules were not valid for System/Service type users; Therefore, the rules for the content of passwords now apply to users of these types. Password change rules are still not valid for System or Service type users. If you are using security policy in your system, you can use the RSUSR_SECPOL_USAGE report to get an overview of how security policy is assigned to users. This report can be found in the User Information System (transaction SUIM). In addition, the user information system reports have added selected security policies to the user selection. This change was provided through a support package; For details, see SAP Note 1611173.
The SAP authorization concept
Customer and vendor totals statements: The Customer or Vendor Accounting Sum. Rate Tables (KNC1/KNC3 or LFC1/LFC3) do not include the Profit Centre field. Therefore, authorisation control with regard to the profit centre is not possible for evaluations such as the customer and vendor balance lists (transactions FD10N or FK10N).

Optional: S_PATH authorization object: If the test identifies 3 additional permissions checks for individual paths for the S_PATH authorization object, these are checked in the fourth step. The access type and the permission group stored in the SPTH table are checked.

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".

To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.

However, you can also search only for a specific selection criterion (e.g. only for transactions, only for authorization objects...).

For example, if an administrator should have access to user management tables, check the permission status using the SE54 transaction.
