Security Automation for SAP Security Checks
For a long time, SAP authorization consultants and ABAP developers have disagreed on how to implement authorization object characteristics in the coding. There are two positions: On the one hand, consultants advise never to test for the signal word DUMMY, the constant space or the literal ' '. These tests only superficially check for the existence of an authorization object and do not react to settings in the field specification in the profile of the roles. Moreover, the literal ' ' is then authorized because it is displayed in the transaction STAUTHTRACE. On the other hand, there are situations where development uses these superficial tests to save the user time and the machine resources. If the program determines early on that the user does not have the necessary objects in the user buffer, it may abort before the first SELECT and issue an appropriate error message. Both positions contain a kernel of truth. Let's look at the effects of different programming on a simplified example. The role(s) have only the authorization object S_DEVELOP with the field value DEVCLASS "Z*".
A major advantage of SAP SuccessFactors is flexibility. Different project teams can implement and use several modules, processes or add-ons in a short time. The processes can be optimized again and again. A central basis for extensively digitized processes are structured specifications that regulate system access and control access rights. In this context, SAP offers the concept of role-based authorizations. Role-based SAP authorizations grant different groups of people different options for action and views in the system, e.g., regulate access to salary data. Role-based authorizations are flexible and facilitate global implementations of SAP SuccessFactors, e.g. in different national companies. Once implemented, roles and their authorizations can be quickly rolled out to the new region. The roles do not have to be completely reconfigured each time. Slight adjustments are all that is required.

SAP_AUDITOR_TAX Collector Role: The SAP_AUDITOR_TAX collection role is made up of module-specific individual rolls and can be seen as a proposal for the read-only role of the tax inspectors (see SAP Note 445148 for details on this role). The transactions and reports included in the SAP_AUDITOR_TAX collection role have been expanded to include additional checks that define the audit period. Some of the transactions and reports included in the SAP_AUDITOR_TAX collection role have also been expanded to include a logging of the call parameters to allow the taxpayer to better understand the auditor's audit trades.
A note box in which data of all kinds can be quickly filed and retrieved. This is what Scribble Papers promises. At first, the program looks very spartan. But once a small structure is in place, you realise the great flexibility of this little helper.
It must be clarified in advance what constitutes a recognized "emergency" in the first place and which scenarios do not yet justify activating the highly privileged user. In addition, it may only be approved and activated after a justified request and only under the dual control principle. After use, it must be administratively blocked again immediately.
The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
In the reference library for SAP Fiori apps, the individual apps can be searched for under "All Apps"" Via the IMPLEMENTATION INFORMATION item, sample roles for FIORI catalogs that contain this activity are also listed in the Business Role(s) section.
You use Central User Management and wonder why you still need to evaluate the licence data individually in the attached systems.
