Assignment of critical authorizations and handling of critical users
SAP Security Automation
To make changes to the table logger, you must have the same permissions as the SE13 transaction to customise, so you must have the appropriate permissions for all tables to modify. The changes are always written to a transport order. The RDDPRCHK report allows you to enable table logging for multiple tables; however, it is not possible to disable logging on multiple tables. This is still only possible through the SE13 transaction.
Create a message to be displayed to the user when permissions checks fail. The tests in this User-Exit are relatively free. This allows you to read table entries, store data from the ABAP application's memory, or read data that is already there. However, you are limited by the interface parameters of the application. In our example, these are the BKPF and BSEG structures and the system variables. If the information from the interface parameters is not sufficient for the test, you can use your programming skills and knowledge about the interdependencies of substitution and validation in finance to find additional data. The following coding allows you to identify the selected offset document entries that you can find in the POSTAB table (with the RFOPS structure) in the SAPMF05A programme. This way you can find many additional data. It is important that the supporting programme processes the User-Exits.
What are the advantages of SAP authorizations?
System trace - Transaction: ST01 or STAUTHTRACE - There is also a system trace for an evaluation. Unlike the authorization trace, a system trace is mainly designed for short periods of time. My preferred variant to call the system trace is via the transaction STAUTHTRACE. Here you can filter the evaluation directly and get a better evaluation representation. Over the individual Buttons one can switch directly the Trace on or off and display the result of the Trace.
A note box in which data of all kinds can be quickly filed and retrieved. This is what Scribble Papers promises. At first, the program looks very spartan. But once a small structure is in place, you realise the great flexibility of this little helper.
Your system landscape does not correspond to a typical three-system landscape? Find out what you should consider when upgrading the suggested values of roles. Your system landscape may differ from the typical three-system landscapes, for example, because you have several development systems or development mandates. Transports are then used to merge all developments and customising entries into one consolidation system. Perform your upgrade work in the SU25 transaction and use Step 3 to transport your SU24 data. By contrast, perform this step in all development systems, run all transports together in your consolidation system, and only the last import of the tables is used. The same entries are also recognised as deleted entries. The same is true with your PFCG rolls. Maintain these in multiple development systems or mandates, and if you now want to transport the rolls with their generated profiles, there is a risk that the profile numbers will be the same, as the profile names consist of the first and third characters of the system ID and a six-digit number. If the profiles originate from the same system (even if the client is a different one), import errors may occur due to the same profile names. In addition, the origin of the profile can no longer be traced afterwards. Therefore, you need a way to transport the data for the permission proposal values and the PFCG rolls in Y landscapes in a transparent and consistent way.
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.
You may have special requirements that are necessarily to be included in the naming convention, such as when you define template roles in a template project that can be customised locally.
As described in Tip 43, "Customising Permissions After Upgrading," administrators may see some upgrade work as a black box.
