Task & functionality of the SAP authorization concept
Note the effect of user types on password rules
Many tools that offer to simplify care operations of the transaction PFCG work Excel-based. The complete roll data is stored and processed in Excel. Then the Excel file is uploaded with a special programme and generates roles and role changes. While this all looks very comfortable (and probably is at first), it has its drawbacks in the long run.
Have you ever wondered who has critical permissions in your system? Have you lacked the tool and approach to identify these users? The user system in an SAP system is always connected to a permission assignment. Over the life cycle of a user in the SAPS system, more and more permissions are accumulated if they are not withdrawn once they are no longer needed. This accumulation is bound to result in users being able to perform more actions than you would like as the permission administrator. To avoid this, we want to give you a suitable tool.
Compensating measures for segregation of duties conflicts
Add SAP Note 1433352 to your system. This note ships with the RSAUDIT_SYSTEM_STATUS report. This report documents the current status of the Client and System Modification Settings in an overview, which you can also print out for evaluation if required. The advantage of this report is that pure display permissions are necessary to execute it.
The background to the mass presence of authorization objects in a PFCG role after a role menu has been created is usually the mass of generic OP links that are not actually necessary for the CRMBusiness role. The existence of proposed values from the transaction SU24 loads the proposed authorisation values associated with the respective external services into the PFCG role, which results in too many unnecessary authorization objects being placed there. By excluding the GENERIC_OP_LINKS folder, you only need to take care of the external services and their authorization objects configured in the CRM business role in your PFCG role. For a user to have all the necessary permissions, you now assign the basic role with the permissions to the generic operating links and the actual role that describes the user's desktop.
Assigning a role for a limited period of time is done in seconds with "Shortcut for SAP systems" and allows you to quickly continue your go-live.
So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? Scribble Papers is a "note box" that makes this very easy.
In the SAP system, each user has the ability to save frequently used functions as their own favourites.
If a function block is not stored there, the call will be blocked.
