In Change Mode in the lower folder hierarchy, double-click the Critical Permission folder, and then select New Entries. In the right-hand pane of the screen, enter the appropriate data for the Eligibility, Text, Colour, and Transaction Code fields. Save your input. When saving, you are asked for a customising job. Please specify it accordingly. Select the entry you just created and double-click to open the Permissions Data folder to maintain the permissions data. Then create a variant. To do this, double-click the Variants to Critical Permissions folder and select New Entries. Enter the name and description of the variant and save your input. Now assign the identifier of the created critical permission to the variant. To do this, select the variant and then double-click in the Variants subfolder to get critical permissions > critical permissions in the input mask. Now click on New Items and select your variant from the list - in our example ZB01. Then save your input. Finally, you can run your report variant with critical permissions. To do this, go back to the RSUSR008_009_NEW entry screen and select the critical permissions option in the variant name pane. Now use the Value Help to select and run the variant you just created.

The most important security services regarding permissions are the EarlyWatch Alert (EWA) and the SAP Security Optimisation Service (SOS). You compare the settings in your SAP systems with the recommendations of SAP. Both services are delivered as partially automated remote services; You can also use the SOS as a fully automated self-service. The EWA and SOS shall carry out eligibility tests, the results of which shall always be as follows: The heading indicates the check in question. A short text describes the importance of the audited entitlement and the risk of unnecessary award. A list indicates the number of users with the validated permission in the different clients of the analysed SAP system. The SOS also allows you to list the users. In the SOS, a recommendation is made for each check to minimise the identified risk. A final formal description represents the checked permissions. However, not only the explicitly mentioned transactions are evaluated, but also equivalent parameter or variant transactions.
