Further training in the area of authorization management
Sustainably protect your data treasures with the right authorization management
It is very important that critical authorizations are generally subject to a monitoring process in order to be able to ensure that they are assigned in a productive system in a very restricted manner or not at all. Law-critical authorizations in particular, such as deleting all change documents, debugging ABAP programs with Replace, and deleting version histories, must never be assigned in a production system, as these authorizations can be used to violate the erasure ban, among other things. It must therefore be ensured that these authorizations have not been assigned to any user, not even to SAP® base administrators.
To do this, first define what information should be checked. In the SU20 transaction, verify that the required fields may already exist as permission fields. If you want to check custom fields, you must create your own permission fields in the transaction SU20. Please pay particular attention to the (F4) help provided. When defining customised permission fields, you assign a name in the Field Name field that is in your Customer Name Room and assign the corresponding data element and, if desired, a table name for a value help. The next step is to create your own authorization object and assign your permission fields and, if necessary, default permission fields. If you use the ACTVT field to validate the activity, you must use the Activities allowed button to select the activities that you want to validate from the source code of your programme. For recommendations on the naming conventions for authorization objects, see SAP Note 395083.

Compiling and identifying external services in the role menu of CRM business roles is tricky. We show you how to bring order to external services. In SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM), the role concept is based not only on PFCG roles, but also on CRM business roles. These roles are created in customising and enable the presentation of CRM applications in the SAP CRM Web Client. In order for a user to work in SAP CRM, he needs both CRM business roles that define the user interface and the respective PFCG roles that entitle him to work in the applications. The CRMD_UI_ROLE_PREPARE report identifies and lists all external services defined in the customising of the CRM business role. These are displayed in the role menu of the PFCG role. You will notice, however, that the displayed services represent only a small part of the external services in the role menu.
The freeware Scribble Papers puts an end to the confusing paper chaos. The tool is also suitable for storing, structuring and quickly finding text documents and text snippets of all kinds in addition to notes.
When scheduling a job, another user can be stored as the executing user. This means that the individual processing steps of the job are technically carried out by the stored user with his or her authorizations. This means that activities could be triggered that could not be executed with the user's own authorizations.
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.
The report shows system owners in real time which roles exist in SAP SuccessFactors and which authorizations these roles contain.
The IT auditor's findings and comments that show potential for improvement in IT-relevant processes or system settings are particularly essential.
