Check for permissions on the old user group when assigning a new user group to a user
Using eCATT to maintain roles
Roles can be cut so that, for example, they only have display or change permissions. Furthermore, it could be differentiated between customising, master data and movement data maintenance.
The P_ABAP (HR-Reporting) authorization object is not required to execute reports, but is intended to improve performance during execution. In addition, it can be used when reports require permissions for info types that the user should not receive in other cases, which is more common. For example, the right to display information type 0008 (basic salary) is also required for the execution of the travel statement reports. The Invoice Payer Programmes also require P_ABAP permissions to process personal data.
SAP Security Concepts
For these scenarios, there are several ways to determine which systems and clients to display to the user in the self-service selection. We therefore describe a possibility that you can use in all scenarios. To do this, use the BAPI BAPI_USER_GET_DETAIL, which you must call for the SAP User ID on all relevant systems. Check the entry for the RETURN table parameter first. If the entry is empty, the user is present in the SAPS system. Any error messages during the call are displayed in this parameter (e.g. if the user is not present). If the PROFILES or ACTIVITYGROUPS table parameters have entries, permissions in this system are assigned to the user. In addition, you can use the REF_USER export parameter to identify a reference user that is associated with it. However, you must also check that it has permissions. You can also determine if a lock exists when you call the BAPI BAPI_USER_GET_DETAIL. To do this, use the ISLOCKED export parameter, which returns a four-character combination of the L (locked) and U (not locked) characters.
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.
You can view the contents of the checked permission fields by double-clicking on the respective variables. The Variables 1 tab displays the variables with the respective values used for this eligibility check. These values correspond to the values that you also see in the System Trace for Permissions. If a permission check ends with SY-SUBRC = 0 when no appropriate permissions are available, verify that the check is turned off locally via the SU24 or globally through the SU25 or AUTH_SWITCH_OBJECTS transactions.
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.
This explains the large number of external services in the role menu.
This enables you to use the risk analysis of the SAP Access Control solution also in relation to critical HANA permissions.
