If you want to allow users to access only individual table rows, you can use the S_TABU_LIN authorization object, which allows access to specific rows of a table for defined organisational criteria. A prerequisite for this type of permission is that the tables have columns with such organisational values, such as the work, country, accounting area, etc. You must now configure these organisational values in the system as organisational criteria that represent business areas; serve as a bridge between the organisational columns in the tables and the permission field in the authorization object. Since the organisational criteria are found in several tables, this eligibility check need not be bound to specific tables and can be defined across tables.
Critical permissions are permissions that allow you to view or modify security-related configurations in the SAP system, or perform activities that are critical from a legal or business perspective. This also includes access to sensitive data, which are e.g. personal. Critical permissions are really critical in themselves and pose a risk only if they get into the wrong hands. In any case, when using critical permissions, you should observe the principle of restricting rights. There are no general definitions of risk; Therefore, each company should define the compliance requirements for itself. Identifying critical SAP permissions is an important task and should be performed in every company. Particular attention should be paid not only to the award of transactions but also to the value characteristics of each of the eligible objects. It is important to mention that preventive regular inspections do not have to be burdensome. However, they will lead to greater transparency and security.
Prevent excessive permissions on HR reporting
You can do this by using the P_ABAP authorization object to override the usual permission checks. This applies to all reports that access the logical database PNPCE (or PNP). In case of a P_ABAP permission, the usual checks for authorization objects, such as P_ORGIN or P_ORGINCON, will no longer take place or will be simplified. This also applies to structural permissions. Whether the permission checks are simplified or completely switched off is controlled by the COARS field of the object. To disable all checks, set the value COARS = 2. This value does not limit the data displayed in the legitimate report. If you want to allow advanced permissions for reporting, but you do not want them to be unrestricted, you must select COARS = 1. In this case, you will also designate the P_ORGIN (or P_ORGINCON, P_ORGXX and P_ORGXXCON) authorization object. However, you must be careful not to mark all fields of the objects, otherwise direct access is also possible. Therefore, always write two versions of the P_ORGIN authorization object, one with the functional permissions (permission levels, info types, and subtypes), and one with the organisational boundaries (personnel area, employee group, employee group, and organisation keys). In addition, you will of course need a P_ABAP for the relevant reports with the value COARS = 1.

Do the permissions for a self-developed UI component for the SAP CRM Web Client always have to be maintained manually? Not necessarily - if you define them as suggested values for external services. If you have developed your own UI components in the Customer Name Room in SAP CRM and you want to authorise them via the default process, i.e. create a role menu for a PFCG role using the CRMD_UI_ROLE_PREPARE report, you must do some preliminary work. When you run the report, you will notice that the external services for your own developments are not present and therefore do not appear in the role menu. The only way to qualify your UI components is to manually maintain the UIU_COMP authorization object. However, you can maintain your own UI components as external services with suggestion values in the SU24 transaction and take advantage of this information in PFCG role maintenance.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
This eliminates the reason that password rules were not valid for System/Service type users; Therefore, the rules for the content of passwords now apply to users of these types.
In the selection, you can now distinguish whether you want to include or exclude users with administrator or password locks in the selection.
