Best Practices Benefit from PFCG Roles Naming Conventions
What are the advantages of SAP authorizations?
You use Central User Management and wonder why you still need to evaluate the licence data individually in the attached systems. This does not have to be the case, because a central evaluation is possible! There are licence fees for using SAP systems, and you need SAP licence keys. The amount of your licence costs will be determined during the current operation, depending on the number of users and the features used in the SAP software. The survey programme (transaction USMM), the results of which you transmit to SAP, serves this purpose. Not only the number of users is relevant, but also their classification, the so-called user types. You assign these to the user via the transaction SU01 or the transaction SU10 (Licence Data tab). Alternatively, you can let the user inherit the user type of a reference user or classify it via an associated role. This is done by analogy when you use the Central User Administration (ZBV). So far, there has been no central evaluation of the data of all systems connected to the ZBV. Now this has changed, and we'll show you how you can use this analysis.
If a user is assigned SAP_ALL, he has all permissions in an ABAP system. Therefore, particular care should be taken in the dedicated award of this entitlement. SAP_ALL can be generated automatically when you transport authorization objects. The SAP_ALL_GENERATION parameter must be maintained in the PRGN_CUST table.
The programmer of a functionality determines where, how or whether authorizations should be checked at all. In the program, the appropriate syntax is used to determine whether the user has sufficient authorization for a particular activity by comparing the field values specified in the program for the authorization object with the values contained in the authorizations of the user master record.
The freeware Scribble Papers is a "note box" in which all kinds of data can be stored. It takes in typed texts as well as graphics and entire documents. The data is then organised in folders and pages.
Users can activate or deactivate processes without affecting other processes. For example, they can activate Succession & Development without affecting position management in Employee Central. With the help of the tool, users always know for what purpose a particular user has been given a particular permission. Basic authorizations, which are identical for every user, are only stored once in a platform role. This ensures that system performance remains optimal.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
A text file is now created under the appropriate path, containing the desired format with the input parameters.
You can transfer this folder to a separate PFCG role by locally specifying the PFCG role that contains the GENERIC_OP_LINKS folder in the new PFCG role under Menu > Other Role >.
