Configure Security Audit Log
This advanced functionality of the transaction SU53 is delivered via a patch. Please refer to SAP Note 1671117 for more information on the required support packages and technical background. Unsuccessful permission checks are now written to a ring buffer of the application server's Shared Memories. This will allow you to view failed permission checks in Web Dynpro applications or other user interfaces, which was not previously possible. Depending on the size of the ring buffer and system usage, up to 100 failed permissions checks per user can be displayed for the last three hours. The size of the ring buffer is calculated from the number of defined work processes. By default, 100 permission checks can be saved per workprocess. You can adjust this size using the auth/su53_buffer_entries profile parameter.
However, it is possible to include the same role in several tasks of different operators within each contract. This increases transparency for you, because all participants can instantly identify which users are editing the role. Before you enable the use of the SCC4 transaction setting for role maintenance, you should release existing role transports to avoid recording conflicts. As a rule, you do not choose the setting depending on your role-care processes; So you have to think very carefully about what the activation will do.

For each area, the connection to other modules is the first priority. For example, for the Controlling division, the connection to the Finance division is first established by connecting the accounting area (FI) to the cost accounting area(s). The assignment of the cost accounting area to the result area is then an internal allocation within the controlling. If no allocations are found for certain valid organisational values, one of the two modules or the relevant functional area shall not be used for the organisational units of the enterprise.
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.
You should therefore enforce cryptographic authentication and communication encryption by setting up Secure Network Communication (SNC). SNC provides a strong cryptographic authentication mechanism, encrypts data transmission, and preserves the integrity of the transmitted data. For some time now, SNC is freely available without a SSOMechanism (SSO = Single Sign-on) for SAP GUI and the RFC communication of all SAP NetWeaver customers. You should always implement SNC between SAP GUI and application server, as this communication can also run over open networks. For RFC communication, you need an SNC implementation if you think the data transfer could be intercepted.
However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".
Authorizations represent instances of generic authorization objects and are defined depending on the employee's activity and responsibilities.
These tables can be accessed either via classic table access transactions such as SE16 or via database administration transactions such as DBACOCKPIT.
