Set up permissions to access specific CO-PA measures
If you want to use reference users and use the User menu, you should also ensure that users also see the role menus associated with reference users. To do this, enter the corrections in SAP Note 1947910. They include two switches for customising in the SSM_CUST table.
You assign a reference user to a dialogue user by registering the reference user for additional rights in the SU01 transaction on the Roles tab in the Reference User field. If you are using Central User Administration (ZBV), the assignment applies to all connected systems. If the reference user does not exist in one of the systems, the mapping is ignored. However, the use of reference users also creates risks. This makes it easier to summarise permissions because it is difficult to keep track of the assigned permissions. In SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.0 and above, reference users are considered in the reports of the user information system.
Controlling permissions for the SAP NetWeaver Business Client
If a release change occurs, the adjustment of permissions is also required as a rework. You will have already learned that this task can be very complex. Many innovations make this work easier and make the whole process more transparent. In the event of a release change, not only new applications are often added, but also new or modified authorization objects, permission checks, and, as a result, modified suggestion values. With the SU25 transaction, you can update the suggestion values step by step and then update all the affected roles. So far, however, the transaction has been a kind of black box for you. You have performed each step without seeing how your suggestion values or roles have changed. We will now show you how to use the new features of the SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP to increase transparency in upgrading suggestion values and mixing PFCG roles.
All permission checks are issued in table form as an ALV list. You can sort or filter this list by column. Furthermore, all the new features of the transaction ST01, which we listed at the beginning of this tip, have been applied for evaluation. Double-clicking on a authorization object will direct you to the authorization object definition, and double-clicking on the transaction will direct you to the programme location where the permission check is performed. For more tips on how to use this trace, see Tip 32, "Maintain permission values using trace evaluations," and Tip 39, "Maintain suggestion values using trace evaluations.".
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.
Access authorizations to the two types of data mentioned above should be assigned only very restrictively.
There are several possible data sources for the user master data that you can access from the BAdI.
