User trace - Transaction: STUSERTRACE - With the transaction STUSERTRACE you call the user trace. Basically, this is the authorization trace (transaction STUSOBTRACE), which filters for individual users. So you can call exactly the authorization trace and set the filter on a user.

The use of suggestion values not only brings advantages when creating or maintaining PFCG roles, but also when maintaining permissions as a rework of an upgrade. Furthermore, these values can be used as a basis for risk definitions. Before creating PFCG roles, it is useful to maintain the suggested values for the transactions used. However, you do not need to completely revise all of the suggested values that are delivered by SAP.
For this very reason, there is a solution to automate the checking of authorizations with regard to critical authorizations and segregation of duties by means of tool support. This gives the authorization administrators more time to correct any errors that occur instead of having to search for them first.
