Bypass Excel-based Permissions Traps
Existing permissions
For a call of transactions from SAP ERP from the SCM system to work, the RFC connection to be called for each ERP transaction must be maintained. To do this, click the More node details button and select the Target system item.

If you only want to translate the description of the role, it is recommended to record the PFCG transaction and to change the source language of the role using the Z_ROLE_SET_MASTERLANG report before the LSMW script runs through. The report on how to change the source language can be found in SAP Note 854311. Similarly, you can use the SECATT (Extended Computer Aided Test Tool, eCATT) transaction to perform the translation instead of the LSMW transaction.
Understanding SAP HANA Permissions Tests
Help, I have no permissions (SU53)! You want to start a transaction, but you have no permissions? Or the more complex case: You open the ME23N (show purchase order), but you don't see any purchase prices? Start transaction SU53 immediately afterwards to perform an authorization check. The missing authorization objects will be displayed in "red". You can also run SU53 for other users by clicking on Authorization Values > Other Users in the menu and entering the corresponding SAP user name.

With the help of the SAP-Note 1642106 it is possible to automatically perform the text comparison from SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.0. Inserting the note will automatically perform text matching for any changes to PFCG roles in the central system. We recommend that you install the support package that is appropriate for your release, which is specified in the SAP Note, because inserting the hint requires a lot of manual work. With the help of the SUSR_ZBV_GET_RECEIVER_PROFILES report, you can turn on the new functionality in all subsidiary systems where the correction information has also been recorded. If you run the report in the central system with the default selection, all subsidiary systems are included. You can check whether the function is present in the daughter systems in the report log.

If you get into the situation that authorizations are required that were not considered in the role concept, "Shortcut for SAP systems" allows you to assign the complete authorization for the respective authorization object.

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.

According to our project experience, some naming conventions are particularly attractive.

In the Permissions Comparison column, you can find out what exactly changed on the permission, such as whether a permission has been deleted or added anew, or whether the field values in the permission have been updated.
