To support the safe operation of SAP systems, SAP offers a whole portfolio of services. We present the security services offered by SAP Active Global Support (AGS). The security of an SAP system in operation depends on many factors. There are several security features in the SAP standard, such as user management, authentication and encryption capabilities, web service security features, and the various authorisation concepts. Vulnerabilities in the standard software are also regularly fixed in SAP notes and support packages. You are responsible for the safe operation of your SAP system landscapes; so you need to incorporate these features and fixes into your systems. The AGS Security Services support you by bundling the experiences of the AGS into consolidated best practices. We introduce these services and describe how they help you gain an overview of the security of your operational concept.
The topic-related audit structures are created based on area menus. On the one hand, SAP default audit structures are offered, and on the other hand, you have the possibility to create custom audit structures as area menus. The advantage of the audit structures as area menus is that you can use existing area menus or simply create new area menus. The SE43 transaction gives you an overview of the existing area menus; It is also used to maintain and transport area menus.
The simulation of the mixing process is delivered with SAP Note 1941325. When you call step 2c, you will get a list of all the roles with the information about whether the respective role is already mixed (green light) or still needs to be mixed (red light). Highlight a role in this list. Use the Mix button to get the simulation of the mixing process for the selected roll.
When assigning a new user group to a user, only the creation permission in the new user group is required. Alternatively, you can enable the check for activity 50 (Move) of the S_USER_GRP authorization object. In the USR_CUST table, set CHECK_MOVE_4_CNG_GRP to YES.
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
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.
Personally, I'm a big fan of the role-based authorizations in SAP SuccessFactors and I'm glad the system has such extensive capabilities.
