Full verification of user group permissions when creating the user
You have read that it is possible to perform mass activities, such as mass roll-offs, using standard means. This is all too complicated for you, and you are still looking for simple solutions for role maintenance? I'm sure you'll have a look at tools from SAP partners that promise to help. In this context, we would like to give you some more information in this tip. There is a very practical occasion: We have too often found a "broken" authorisation system with SAP customers, caused by the incorrect application of additional programmes. Sometimes, the role content was misaligned and the suggestion values were not neatly maintained, so at some point the permission administrators couldn't figure out what to do. Therefore, you should check very well whether the tool you are considering is actually suitable for your purposes.
You can implement the first request for additional verifications when performing document transactions by using document validation. In this example, we assume that the document is posted through an interface and that you want to check permissions for custom authorization objects and/or certain data constellations. There are different dates for document validation. The complete document can always be validated, if only the information from document header (time 1) or document position (time 2) is available to you, this can also be sufficient depending on the scenario. In such cases, you need to create validation at the appropriate times. Before you can write a User-Exit in a validation, you have to make some preparations.
Correct settings of the essential parameters
With Managed Services, you receive professional management and improvement of your SAP authorizations. In doing so, we analyze your existing workflows and processes and work out optimization potentials. The implementation of the potentials takes place within a few months. As a basis for central and efficient administration, we implement an underlying tool, working continuously and directly with your SAP key users.
You use Central User Management and wonder why you still need to evaluate the licence data individually in the attached systems. This does not have to be the case, because a central evaluation is possible! There are licence fees for using SAP systems, and you need SAP licence keys. The amount of your licence costs will be determined during the current operation, depending on the number of users and the features used in the SAP software. The survey programme (transaction USMM), the results of which you transmit to SAP, serves this purpose. Not only the number of users is relevant, but also their classification, the so-called user types. You assign these to the user via the transaction SU01 or the transaction SU10 (Licence Data tab). Alternatively, you can let the user inherit the user type of a reference user or classify it via an associated role. This is done by analogy when you use the Central User Administration (ZBV). So far, there has been no central evaluation of the data of all systems connected to the ZBV. Now this has changed, and we'll show you how you can use this analysis.
For the assignment of existing roles, regular authorization workflows require a certain minimum of turnaround time, and not every approver is available at every go-live. With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you have options to assign urgently needed authorizations anyway and to additionally secure your go-live.
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.
Access to this data is critical, since the hash values can possibly be decrypted using tools, thus enabling unauthorized logon to the SAP system.
By contrast, perform this step in all development systems, run all transports together in your consolidation system, and only the last import of the tables is used.
