Customise Permissions After Upgrade
The SAP authorization concept
Add missing modification flags in SU24 data: This function complements the modification flag for entries that have changed since the last execution of step 2a in the transaction SU25, i.e., where there is a difference to the SAP data from the transaction SU22. The flag is thus set retrospectively, so that no customer data is accidentally overwritten with step 2a due to missing modification flags.
Every company knows the situation, every year again the auditor announces himself to perform the annual audit and to certify the balance sheet at the end of the audit. In the first part on this topic, the focus was on the relevant processes and documentation. In this part, the concentration is on a deeper level, namely directly in the SAP® system. The specifications for this should already be written down in the SAP® authorization concept.

A prerequisite for the indirect assignment of PFCG roles is a well-maintained organisational model. This may correspond to a line organisation consisting of organisational units to which posts are assigned. Use an organisation chart to visualise the employee structure of the company or department for which you are to assign roles. Assign to the posts the people to whom a user is assigned as an attribute. In addition, you can also include other objects from HR organisation management, such as the posts describing the post and assigning roles.
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.
In the only method of the BAdIs, CHANGE_ITEMS, programme the necessary checks, such as on specific data constellations or permissions. These can refer to all fields in the FAGLPOSX structure. You do this by specifying that all lines for which the test was not successful will be deleted during the execution of the method. This implementation of the BAdIs complements the Business Transaction Event 1650 described in the second example. You can also use the FB03 transaction to display receipts in the same way that you implement the FB03 filter. In this case, implement the required checks in the BAdI FI_AUTHORITY_ITEM.
For the assignment of existing roles, regular authorization workflows require a certain minimum of turnaround time, and not every approver is available at every go-live. With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you have options to assign urgently needed authorizations anyway and to additionally secure your go-live.
I recently discussed the special features of this in the article "SAP Authorizations Mass Maintenance Single Role Assignments in Composite Roles per Function Module (FuBa) or Transaction Code", but here I would rather discuss the roles and assignment of authorization object field values in role maintenance with the PFCG for an authorization overview.
The Organisation Level Value Helper (Orgebene) provides a list of all customer-specific organisation fields, because only these can be converted back to normal Permissions Object Fields.
