Authorizations in SAP BW, HANA and BW/4HANA
Compensating measures for segregation of duties conflicts
You can't keep an eye on everything. Therefore, avoid that your colleagues do not assign users to a user group, and thus ensure that the user master data maintenance permissions check is correct. You do not want a user without a user group to be able to be created in your SAP systems? Users without a user group can be changed by all administrators with permission for any user group. You should also prevent incomplete permission checks when assigning roles and profiles to users without a permission group. Because it is possible to assign roles and permissions to a user first, and then assign a user group that does not have permission to assign roles and profiles. Finally, do you want to change the user group for an existing user without having permission for the new user group? In the following section we will show you how to secure your user master data maintenance.
Using these authorizations, any source code can be executed independently of the actual developer authorizations and thus any action can be performed in the system. This authorization should only be assigned to an emergency user.
ACCESS CONTROL | AUTHORIZATION MANAGEMENT FOR SAP®
You can greatly facilitate the maintenance of permissions in controlling by defining the RESPAREA field as the organisational level, and thus using your cost centre and profit centre hierarchies. In the SAP system, you can define cost centre hierarchies and profit centre hierarchies. For example, they can map the expiration organisation or a matrix organisation in your company. To facilitate the mapping of permissions for the controlling reports, you can grant permissions to nodes in those hierarchies. You can do this by assigning permissions through the RESPAREA field, which is used in certain authorization objects in the controlling. We would like to facilitate the creation of roles for these permissions by explaining to you which activities are necessary in advance to define the RESPAREA field as an organisational level.

In such a case the last error is displayed in SU53 or the display is empty. Then you can't avoid analyzing the error message of the transaction. One more tip in the end: Instruct the user to take the screen shot with
, this will put the whole active window on the clipboard and you can see which transaction, system and context of the transaction it is. Smaller "SnagIt "s are mostly useless and lead to unnecessary queries.
During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.
