Authorization objects of the PFCG role
SAP Authorization Trace - Simple Overview of Authorizations
You can use your own authorization objects to develop permission checks to authorise your custom applications or extend default permissions. So far, the maintenance of the authorization objects has been very unmanageable. Authorization objects can be displayed and recreated in the transaction SU21. Creating authorization objects over this transaction has not been very user-friendly. If the input was not done correctly, the dialogue was sometimes not transparent and confusing for the user. The same was true for storing a authorization object. Several pop-up windows indicate further care activities. Another problem is that the proof of use of the authorization object is limited to finding implementations of the authorization object. However, authorization objects are also used in other places, such as suggestion value maintenance and permission maintenance. Another problem is the use of namespaces. For SAPartner who want to maintain their permission checks in their namespaces, the classic name rooms, starting with J, are used up.
You want to create a permission concept for applications that use SAP HANA? Find out what you should consider in terms of technical basics and tools. As described in Tip 22, "Application Solutions for User Management in SAP HANA", there are different application scenarios where the permission assignment on the HANA database is required.

Since SAP NetWeaver 7.02, such a feature is available, which means that you can access the data from the system trace to maintain PFCG roles. In the following we show you how you can apply the permission values from the permission trace to your role. To do this, you must first record applications against their permission checks and then add them to your role menu.
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.
Look closely at the security advisory so that you can identify the affected programmes or functions and schedule appropriate application tests. Use a test implementation in the SNOTE transaction to identify additional SAP hints that are required for a security advisory and may also contain functional changes.
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
You can customise the AIS cockpit to your needs.
In addition, you can switch off the trade via the "Trace off" button or the F8 key and switch the trace back on via the "Trace on" button that is then displayed or the F7 key.
