Which challenges cannot be solved with authorization tools alone?
The goal of an authorization concept is to provide each user with the appropriate authorizations in the system individually for their tasks according to a previously defined rule. For this purpose, an authorization concept must be defined as the foundation for efficient authorization assignment. In this way, each employee is given system access through the role-specific assignment of authorizations according to his or her tasks. On the one hand, this protects sensitive information and, on the other, prevents damage caused by incorrect use of data.
The authorization objects are attached by analogy to the forecast and item-based reports. The authorization objects of the item-based reports are checked in addition to the authorization objects for the information system when the report is selected. There is a trick in maintaining the CO-PA-specific authorization objects, because a once selected result area is set for the entire session of your login. This is of course hindering the maintenance of authorization objects for different result areas. Therefore, simply change the result area in the Customising window using the following path: Controlling > Income and market segment accounting > Structures > Set result area.
Define a user group as mandatory field in the user root
Since Release 4.6D, the system creates a new folder for each of the roles included in the pulley when rebuilding a Collective Roll menu at the first hierarchy level, and only then the corresponding menu is located. You can decide whether the text of each folder should consist of the technical name or the short text of the role. This function can be disabled by customising.
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.
Of course, you can also use the data obtained with the permission trace (with filter for the S_DATASET authorization object) to express permissions on the object itself. In any case, you should also use the values obtained for the PROGRAM field. In this way, you exclude misuse by modified copies of ABAP programmes. This limitation of access programmes already represents a security gain, even if you do not want to restrict access to paths and files.
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".

By specifying the use of certain utilities, it is also possible, for example, to protect data consistency during access (ENQUEUE and DEQUEUE function modules) or to regularly check source code for security (code scanner).
