Retain the values of the permission trace to the role menu
In addition to existing authorization objects, you can also create your own authorization objects and select existing authorization fields such as Activity (ACTVT). To the individual fields then, as with ACTVT, the permissible options which are deposited at the field can be specified. Thus, for an own authorization object with the authorization field ACTVT, the activity 01 Add or Replace, 02 Change and 03 Display can be selected and would then be available as a selection in the authorization field in the role maintenance.
You know that changing your SU24 data involves mixing the roles in question. Previously, the permission administrators had to select roles from, for example, the SUIM transaction to edit them. Often, the remixing of the respective roles is also forgotten. In order to ensure that you can set the mixing mode for the respective roles directly when maintaining the data in the transaction SU24, the function has been provided here with the respective support packages named in SAP Note 1896191. Correction is used to change the mixing mode for PFCG: On/Off/Roles. The function assigns the shuffle mode to the roles, which corresponds to step 2c of the transaction SU25 (see tip 43, "Customise Permissions After an Upgrade"). You can enable this function by using the value Y for the parameter SU2X_SET_FORCE_MIX in the table PRGN_CUST. The status of the mixing mode can be checked by clicking the button Mixing mode for PFCG: Enquire On/Off. By default, this feature is off. The Roles button (Use in Single Roles) identifies all the roles that the selected application contains and displays them directly in the SU24 transaction. You will receive a list of all matching roles in the SUPC transaction by selecting the Also-to-be-matched roles option, and you can now gradually update the roles.

The advantage of this feature is that administrators can parse failed permission checks regardless of end users. End users can save their unsuccessful checks to the database using the Save ( ) button. As an administrator, you can also back up failed permission checks from other users. The Saved Checks button also gives you access to this information afterwards. The automatic storage carried out when the old transaction SU53 was called is omitted because it overwrote the last recording. You can also load the results into an Excel file to allow a more comfortable evaluation.
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.
Cybersecurity is a broad field. Starting with the technical infrastructure of companies and extending to the business processes in SAP systems. Such projects must be well planned and prepared. We have already seen some negative examples of companies that wanted too much at once and then "got it wrong." When it comes to securing business processes in particular, it is important to ensure that the employees affected are picked up and involved. Therefore, use a risk analysis to select the topics and processes that should be at the top of the list when securing.
During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.
Secure management of this access is essential for every company.
Over the button field maintenance also own-developed authorization fields can be created to either a certain data element is assigned or also search assistance or check tables are deposited.
