Users of your Web applications should have access to the applications that correspond to their particular business roles. You can use the S_START authorization object to map this request in the PFCG roles. Applications based on SAP products offer users different access methods, of which the use of SAP GUI with application-related SAP transactions is to be called "classic". In Web applications, application interfaces are represented in a Web browser. Not only transactional processes, but also the display of results from data analyses or static facts should be supported. The SAP transaction model, which controls access through the S_TCODE authorization object, does not meet these requirements.
By adding certain SAP standard reports and the user information system ("SUIM"), you can quickly identify security-relevant issues and correct any errors. This improves basic management of your existing security concept and protects you against external and internal intrusions. If you need help with your system analysis, please feel free to contact us. Xiting offers you a wide range of services related to SAP Security. Above all, our proprietary security tool, the Xiting Authorizations Management Suite, or XAMS for short, allows you to build a new role concept based on your usage data and even generate a revision-compliant security concept at the push of a button. Why not see for yourself and join one of our many different webinars.
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.
If a release change occurs, the adjustment of permissions is also required as a rework. You will have already learned that this task can be very complex. Many innovations make this work easier and make the whole process more transparent. In the event of a release change, not only new applications are often added, but also new or modified authorization objects, permission checks, and, as a result, modified suggestion values. With the SU25 transaction, you can update the suggestion values step by step and then update all the affected roles. So far, however, the transaction has been a kind of black box for you. You have performed each step without seeing how your suggestion values or roles have changed. We will now show you how to use the new features of the SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP to increase transparency in upgrading suggestion values and mixing PFCG roles.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
Nevertheless, there are topics that should be considered in an authorization concept.
The dev_ and gw_ entries allow you to view files from the developer trace and Gateway Log in the ST11 transaction.
