Use SAP_NEW correctly
If you use configuration validation, we still recommend that you use the AGS Security Services, such as the EarlyWatch Alerts and SAP Security Optimisation Services, which we describe in Tip 93, "AGS Security Services." SAP keeps the specifications and recommendations in the AGS Security Services up to date and adapts them to new attack methods and security specifications. If you have identified new security issues within a security service, you can set your target systems accordingly and monitor these aspects in the future.
Two equal permissions that meet the first maintenance status condition are also combined when all the values of the two permissions differ in one field or when a permission with all its fields is included in the other. However, if there are open permission fields in a permission, they will not be combined unless all permission fields in the permission values are the same.
Put the values of the permission trace into the role menu: The applications (transactions, web-dynpro applications, RFCBausteine or web services) are detected through their startup permissions checks (S_TCODE, S_START, S_RFC, S_SERVICE) and can be added to the role menu of your role. In your role, go to the Menu tab and import these applications by clicking Apply Menus and selecting Import from Trace. A new window will open. Here you can evaluate the trace and view all recognised applications in the right window. To do this, click the Evaluate Trace button and select System Trace (ST01) > Local. In a new System Trace window, you can specify the evaluation criteria for the trace, such as the user using the Trace field only for users or the time period over which to record. Then click Evaluate. Then, in the right part of the window, you will see all the applications logged. Select the applications you want to apply to the Roles menu and click Apply. You can now decide how the applications appear in the Role menu. The application can be added to the role either as a permission proposal or as a menu item through the Add drop-down box. They can be displayed as a list or as a panel menu (insert as list) or according to the SAP menu tree in which the application is stored in the SAP menu (insert as SAP menu).
A mass rolling out of rolls is a very useful thing. It is also possible to use Excel-based data - as in the case of the outlined application case with eCATT - because it is a one-time action for the roles considered and SAP standard programmes are used in the background. However, ongoing maintenance of the permissions system, with continuous changes to roles and their detail permissions, requires the mapping of much more complex operations. An exclusive control over Office programmes should be well considered. This does not mean, of course, that there are not very good partner products for the care of roles. Simply verify that SAP standard procedures are used and that authorisation is managed in accordance with SAP best practices.
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.
The report PRGN_COMPRESS_TIMES provides a remedy.
This folder structure can also be found in the SMEN_BUFFC table.
