Data ownership concept
Rebuilding the authorization concept
Is it necessary for your evaluations to select the blocked or invalid users? This is now directly possible with the extensions of the user information system. There is always a requirement to evaluate the existing users in your SAP system. Examples may include lists requested by auditors. In such a case, you naturally want to exclude invalid users and those with administrator lock from the selection. Up to now, you have had to perform various evaluations with the reports RSUSR200 and RSUSR002 of the user information system (transaction SUIM) and subsequently edit the lists. The findings may not have been accepted by the auditors as the lists were visibly manipulated, even if this manipulation was justified. You can now enter this selection directly. We will show you below how to search for users with password or administrator lock or exclude them from your selection.
This solution is only available with a support package starting with SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.31 and requires a kernel patch. For details on the relevant support packages, see SAP Note 1750161. In addition, the SAP Cryptographic Library must be installed; but this is ensured by the required kernel patch. Only if you have manually made a different configuration, you must check this requirement.
Statistical data of other users
We recommend you to transport all these changes. Basically, you should always make changes to organisation levels on your development system and then transport them. If you use multiple clients, you should note that the organisation levels and the proposed permissions are client-independent data, whereas the roles and profiles in question are client-dependent. If you are using more than one client, you must also run the PFCG_ORGFIELD_ROLES report in the other mandates to determine the roles that the new organisation level will contain. With the help of this report, you must then rearrange all the roles listed in the Status column: Orgebene in Role are indicated in red. You can select these roles and then use the Reduce in Roles button to adjust them to the new organisation level.
So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? That's what Scribble Papers is great for.
From the result of the statistical usage data, you can see which transactions (ENTRY_ID) were used, how often (COUNTER), and how many different users. There are various indications from this information. For example, transactions that were used only once by a user within 12 months could indicate a very privileged user, or inadvertently invoking a transaction for which a user has permissions. The future assignment of such transactions in the SAP role concept should then be critically questioned. In contrast, you should consider transactions with a high level of usage and a large user circle (e.g. with more than ten users) in an SAP role concept.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
Diese Abfrage können Sie aber auch mithilfe des Profilparameters login/password_change_for_SSO ausschalten.
It is also used in the client 000, e.g. for certain jobs or Unicode conversions.
