Authorization concepts in SAP systems
Only current profile data is always recorded, so that obsolete profiles and permissions in the target system cannot be deleted by transport. This data remains associated with the users and remains effective until it clears a user synchronisation with the Cleanup option (transaction PFUD).
On the one hand, sensitive company data must not fall into the wrong hands, but on the other hand, they also form an important basis for decisions and strategic company directions. Avoid a scenario of accidentally accessible data or incomplete and thus unusable reports by implementing your SAP BW authorizations properly.
SAP AUTHORIZATIONS: THE 7 MOST IMPORTANT REPORTS
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? Scribble Papers is a "note box" that makes this very easy.
Once you have archived the change documents from the User and Permission Management, you can use a logical index for change document properties to significantly improve performance. First, however, you must ensure that SAP Notes 1648187 and 1704771 are installed in your systems. These notes provide the SUIM_CTRL_CHG_IDX report, which adds key characteristics for change document characteristics of the PFCG and IDENTITY object classes to the SUIM_CHG_IDX table when you have marked the Indices key change documents field. All change documents are indexed (this can lead to a very long run time when the report is first run). Later, the newly added change documents are indexed regularly (e.g. weekly or monthly). To do this, specify the target date in the selection of the report and schedule it as a regular job. Note that you can only create the index until the previous day - otherwise inconsistencies may occur.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
In addition, the auditor examines whether the four important concepts of SAP Security, namely the data ownership concept, the proprietary development concept, the authorization concept and the emergency user concept, meet the requirements.
