Goal of an authorization concept
AUTHORIZATIONS IN SAP SYSTEMS
In the SAP standard, there is no universally applicable way to automate the mass maintenance of role derivations. We therefore present three possible approaches: 1) Approach to custom development 2) Automated mass maintenance using the Business Role Management (BRM) component of SAP Access Control 3) Use of a pilot note that allows a report for mass update of organisational values in rolls (currently available to selected customers).
Transaction SE63 allows you to translate a variety of text in the SAP system. You can find the texts relevant to the permission roles by going to the Translation > ABAP Objects > Short Texts menu. In the Object Type Selection pop-up window that appears, select the S3 ABAP Texts node and select the ACGR Roles sub-point. You can now select the role in the following screen. You must note that the system expects the client to be prefixed, and the next step allows you to maintain the chunk in the target language. The variable AGR_TEXTS 00002 corresponds to the description of the role and the variable AGR_HIERT_TEXT 00001 corresponds to the description of the transactions contained therein. After you have saved the entry, the description of the role is also maintained in the target language, in our example in the English language and visible after the login. Select the source language correctly in the field.
Maintaining Authorization Objects (Transaction SU21)
To make the most of the time stamping process, you should fill the time stamp tables in the legacy system before upgrading. Implement SAP Note 1599128. With this correction, the report SU25_INITIALIZE_TSTMP is delivered, which allows to write the current timestamps of your data from the transaction SU22 into the respective timestamp tables USOBT_TSTMP and USOBX_TSTMP. After the upgrade, you will have a reference date for your SU22 data, which you can use to compare with the SAP proposal data shipped for the new release. Setting the timestamps in the legacy release reduces the effort required to complete step 2a, because only those applications whose SU22 data has been modified are matched. If you have not filled the timestamp tables in the old release, the tables in your new release will be empty. In this case, in step 2a, the content of the SAP proposal values will be compared to the customer proposal values, regardless of a timestamp.
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.
Authorization: An authorization allows a user to perform a specific activity in the SAP system based on a set of authorization object field values. Authorizations allow users to perform actions within the system.
