Permissions with Maintenance Status Changed or Manual
Authorization object documentation
Authorizations in a company are usually not assigned to individuals, but to roles. A role describes jobs or positions within the organization. One or more persons can hold a role and thus have the access authorizations assigned to the role. The authorization profile (the number of authorizations) of a role contains all authorization objects that are required to execute the transactions. By means of a profile generator (transaction PFCG) the creation of the authorization profile can be automated in SAP.
The S_START boot authorisation check is delivered inactively by SAP. If this test is activated in an AS-ABAP installation (see also SAP Note 1413011), this will affect all clients. Therefore, before you activate, it must be ensured that all affected users in the permission profiles associated with them have the necessary values in the S_START permission fields.

Two equal permissions that meet the first maintenance status condition are also combined when all the values of the two permissions differ in one field or when a permission with all its fields is included in the other. However, if there are open permission fields in a permission, they will not be combined unless all permission fields in the permission values are the same.
To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.
Since the introduction of the security policy in SAP NetWeaver 7.31, this report has changed. In older releases, instead of the security policy overview, a profile parameter selection page is offered in the report's startup screen. If you select Show Profile Parameters in this selection view, you will see an overview of the Profile Parameters settings in the upper half of the screen. Here you should pay particular attention to the setting of the parameter login/no_ automatic_user_sapstar and check its setting even after the switch to the security policy.
However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".
The permission checks are logged as part of the system trace in transaction ST01.
When accessing tables or views, the S_TABU_DIS authorization object is used to grant permission for a specific table permission group in the permission check.
