What are the advantages of SAP authorizations?

The SAP authorization concept must generally be created in two versions: for the ABAP stack and for the Java stack. Which roles are required, which role may call which SAP functions, and other conceptual issues are identical. However, there are fundamental differences between the two versions.
Remove improperly defined SAP Orgebene ($CLASS): This function deletes the $CLASS organisational level that was incorrectly delivered with the GRCPlug-in (Governance, Risk and Compliance). Use the test mode of the report to look at possible corrections in advance.
Maintain batch job suggestion values
Users' favourite lists provide valuable information about the transactions they use. With the knowledge of the favourites, you can therefore avoid gaps in your authorisation concept. In the SAP system, each user has the ability to save frequently used functions as their own favourites. In practice, we have found that this feature is very often used by users. If you create a new permission concept, it is useful to include the favourites in the viewing. Because the favourites don't just store used transactions over and over again, but also transactions that users use only occasionally. These occasional transactions could be quickly forgotten when redesigning a eligibility concept. Therefore, we always recommend that you match the transactions you have considered with the favourites stored in your system.
SAPCPIC: SAPCPIC is not a dialogue user, but is used for EDI usage in older releases (EDI = Electronic Data Interchange); in default, SAPCPIC has permissions for RFC access. However, you should not use this user for them, nor for batch processes, but you must create other users for these applications. Safeguard measures: Lock down the user, change the password, assign it to the SUPER user group and log it with the Security Audit Log.
The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
