The programmer of a functionality determines where, how or whether authorizations should be checked at all. In the program, the appropriate syntax is used to determine whether the user has sufficient authorization for a particular activity by comparing the field values specified in the program for the authorization object with the values contained in the authorizations of the user master record.
If you have developed your own permission checks to use them in your own programmes or to make extensions to the SAPS standard, it is essential that you maintain the Z authorization objects as suggestion values for the respective applications. Thus, they do not have to be reworked manually in the respective roles. In addition, you have created a transparent way to document for which applications your customer's permissions are available. Last but not least, a well-managed suggestion value maintenance helps you with upgrade work on suggestion values and PFCG roles. This ensures that your changes and connections to the respective PFCG roles are retained and new permissions checks for the new release are added to the applications.
User & Authorization Management with SIVIS as a Service
For performance reasons, the SAP kernel checks whether a user is authorised in the permission buffer. However, only profiles and no roles are loaded into the permission buffer. Calling the SU56 transaction will cause you to parse the permission buffer, first displaying your own user's permission buffer. A pop-up window to change the user or authorization object will appear from the Other User/Permissions Object (F5) menu path. Here you can select the user you want to analyse in the corresponding field. The Permissions > Reset User Buffer path allows you to reload the permission buffer for the displayed user.
Changes in customizing and various security-relevant changes, such as the maintenance of RFC interfaces, can be viewed via table change logs. This authorization should only be given to an emergency user.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
The freeware Scribble Papers puts an end to the confusing paper chaos. The tool is also suitable for storing, structuring and quickly finding text documents and text snippets of all kinds in addition to notes.
To do this, open the authorization object in the SU21 transaction.
Therefore, it is always good to have a screen image of the actual error message sent to you as well.
