Analyse and evaluate permissions using SAP Query
Search for user and password locks
Make sure that reference users are assigned minimal permissions to avoid overreaching dialogue user permissions. There should be no reference users with permissions that are similar to the SAP_ALL profile.
Entry into role maintenance requires the transport permission (S_USER_AGR, ACTVT = 02) in addition to the modification permission (S_USER_AGR, ACTVT = 21). If role recording requires creating new transport jobs or tasks, you need permissions to the transport objects (e.g. S_TRANSPRT with TTYPE = CUST or TASK and ACTVT = 02).
Permissions must be maintained in every SAP system - a task that becomes more difficult the more complex the system landscapes and the greater the number of users. Especially in growing system landscapes, once defined concepts no longer fit the current requirements or the processes in role and authorisation management become more and more complex and cumbersome over time.
So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? That's what Scribble Papers is great for.
The security policy was introduced with the SAP NetWeaver 7.31 release; for their use you need at least this release. Security policies thus replace the definition of password rules, password changes, and login restrictions via profile parameters. The security policy is assigned to the user in transaction SU01 on the Logon Data tab. Profile parameter settings remain relevant for user master records that have not been assigned a security policy. Some of the profile parameters are also not included in the security policy and therefore still need to be set system-wide. Security policy always includes all security policy attributes and their suggestion values. Of course, you can always adjust the proposed values according to your requirements. You define security policy about the SECPOL transaction. Select the attributes for which you want to maintain your own values and enter the values accordingly. The Descendable Entries button displays the attributes that are not different from the global entries.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
Changes in customizing and various security-relevant changes, such as the maintenance of RFC interfaces, can be viewed via table change logs.
System performance also suffers as the amount of data increases.
