Maintaining Authorization Objects (Transaction SU21)
What to do when the auditor comes - Part 2: Authorizations and parameters
In order to be able to act fully at all times in emergency situations, an SAP emergency user must be available who has all authorizations for the entire SAP system (typically by means of the composite profile SAP_ALL). However, this not only makes him a great help, but also extremely dangerous, so that his use must be precisely regulated via a dedicated concept.
An alternative to using the S_TABU_LIN authorization object is to create custom table views that make organisational delimitation easier to achieve. To do this, create a new view in the SE11 transaction and add the table to which the constraint will apply on the Tables/Join Conditions tab. The Selection Conditions tab allows you to specify your restrictive organisational condition in the form of a field and a field value. You then authorise all relevant users to access the view, which contains only data for your organisational restriction.
Best Practices Benefit from PFCG Roles Naming Conventions
From release 10.1, SAP Access Control supports the creation of users and the assignment of roles and privileges in HANA databases. If you use the concept of business roles in SAP Access Control, you can achieve an automatic installation of the users in SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP and HANA database and the assignment of the ABAP and HANA technical roles (or privileges) when assigning a business role.
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.
Without generic table logging, certain changes in the system are not traceable. Learn how to turn on table logging in the system for a large set of tables. The SAP system writes change documents for most changes - but not all. Specifically, changes to tables in which the customising is performed are not recorded in the modification documents. This may lead to a lack of comprehensibility of changes. Avoid this by basically enabling table logging and then setting logging for specific additional tables. You should always enable table logging for all clients. However, during a release upgrade it may be necessary to temporarily disable table logging.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
Allows you to limit the permission trace to values that can be set by the filter.
Now maintain the permission proposal values for your report transaction in transaction SU24 by entering the transaction code in the appropriate field.
