Customise evaluation paths in SAP CRM for indirect role mapping
AUTHORIZATIONS IN SAP SYSTEMS
Do you want to automatically monitor the security settings of your systems and receive convenient evaluations? We will explain how to use configuration validation. If you have a large SAP system landscape in use, the control of the many different security settings can be complex. You define your security requirements for the entire SAP system landscape; they concern, for example, the settings of the profile parameters, the handling of safety instructions or critical permissions that may only be assigned to emergency users. You can define these requirements in the SAP Solution Manager Configuration Validation application and evaluate compliance with these requirements in all systems.
Increasingly, it is possible to make use of automation in the security environment. Although these are not yet used by many companies, they are the next step in digital transformation. By using automation intelligently, companies can free up resources for the innovation topics that really matter. In the future, we can expect both the number and power of automation tools to increase. It is therefore only a matter of time before SAP itself also delivers optimized support in the form of tools as standard.
Our services in the area of SAP authorizations
Are you already using BAPIs in user care? For example, you can use them to set up a password reset self service. We show you how to do this and what you need to pay attention to. Especially with large system landscapes and systems that are only sporadically used, users often forget their password. Strengthened password rules (e.g. to change a password regularly or to require certain character types to be used), which are supposed to serve security, do their part. Forgotten passwords and the frequently resulting user locks are unfortunately often lost to the user when access to a system is most needed. Unlocking a user and assigning a new password is rarely done in real time, even with large 24-hour support service departments. This problem, which I am sure you are familiar with, does not exactly promote employee satisfaction and productivity. A self-service that uses the Business Application Programming Interfaces (BAPIs) can counteract this.
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.
In the course of a comprehensive protection of your system from the inside as well as from the outside it is indispensable to have a closer look especially at the SAP standard users. They have far-reaching authorizations that can cause great damage to your system if misused. It should be noted that they are very important for the operational execution of your SAP system and must not be deleted. However, since the associated standard passwords can be quickly researched, they must be changed immediately after delivery of the SAP ERP. You can perform a detailed check of these users using report RSUSRS003. It is also recommended to set certain default users inactive until they are actually used.
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".
In the PRGN_CUST table, set the customising switch REF_USER_CHECK to E.
SAP's proposed permissions for the S_DATASET authorization object do not provide much help, and S_PATH has virtually no information, because you must activate this authorization object only by customising the SPTH table.
