Redesign of SAP® Authorizations
This function was not part of the standard delivery. With the support package named in SAP Note 1860162, the transaction SAIS_SEARCH_APPL is now delivered. This transaction allows you to verify that other applications have startup properties similar to those available in a particular application. For example, we searched for applications with similar functionality as the PPOME transaction provides.
Native or analytical tiles: These tiles work exclusively in the FIORI interface and are adapted to the new technology. Here, for example, push messages are displayed on the tile, or key figures, diagrams, etc. are displayed, which can then be processed directly with a click. These tiles do not have direct GUI access, or cannot be used directly in the GUI environment. As mentioned above, access to these tiles is provided in a so-called front-end system via corresponding catalogs and groups. However, the underlying conceptual permissions (who is allowed to do what within the functionality of the tile) follows the same processes as in the "old world" for transaction access. The tile in the front-end needs here corresponding dependent distinctive authorizations (keyword: SU24 adjustment). In the back-end system, then again - analogous to the "old" world - about a role, which is built in the profile generator and maintained on object and field level, or set. Of course, topics such as updating internal and third-party tools, integrating cloud solutions, modern hybrid infrastructures, defining and operating ongoing dynamic changes, etc. must also be taken into account here.
SIVIS as a Service
The assignment of roles does not include any special features. Therefore, we only deal with the topics of time-space delimitation and logging. Time-space validation is implemented as an additional filter that runs after the usual permission checks. This additional filter logic works as follows: The first step is to check whether the user is entered in the tax verifier table (Table TPCUSERN, Configuration with the transaction TPC2). Only then will the further tests be carried out. If not, no additional checks will be carried out. The programme is then checked to see if it is included in the table of allowed programmes (table TPCPROG, configuration with the transaction TPC4). If the check is negative, the system cancels with a permission error. The time-space check is performed against the valid intervals in the table TPCDATA (configuration with the transaction TPC6). The time-space check works in context: In addition to the supporting documents of the audit period, older supporting documents are also included if they are still relevant for the audit period, such as open items that were booked in previous years but only settled in the audit period. Records that do not fall into the valid period according to the logic described above are filtered out.
To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.
Tax reporting: The tax reporting system in SAP is based on the accounting area. The Profit Centre is not intended as a reporting unit here.
The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
If the role assignment of the ZBV in the SCUM transaction is set to global, it is sufficient if the correction is recorded in the central client.
For this reason, tools for technical analysis must be used regularly to provide the status quo of authorization assignment and thus the basis for optimization.
