SAP authorizations: Recommendations for setting up, monitoring and controlling

Like all other security issues, SAP authorizations must be integrated into the framework used. The risks associated with incorrectly assigned authorizations must be classified as very high. The definition of a holistic governance, risk and compliance management system is required. This ensures that risks are recorded, analyzed, evaluated, coordinated and forwarded within the company at an early stage. Accordingly, the risks arising from incorrectly assigned SAP authorizations or from a lack of a process for monitoring authorizations are also included here.
The other fields in the SMEN_BUFFC table describe the structure of the favourites, where the OBJECT_ID field is the unique key of the favourite entry. In the PARENT_ID field, you will find the parent item's object ID, and the MENU_LEVEL field describes the level of the entry in the favourite folder structure. You can read the order in which the favourite entries are sorted from the SORT_ORDER field.
Authorization roles (transaction PFCG)
As an SAP SuccessFactors implementation partner, we are often confronted with complex authorization constellations. For sure: If a consulting company does not implement a process first and the "framework" is missing as a result, the existing SAP authorizations must be analyzed retrospectively and the underlying concept must be understood. Only then can the new process be meaningfully inserted into the authorization concept.
So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? That's what Scribble Papers is great for.
Many tools that offer to simplify care operations of the transaction PFCG work Excel-based. The complete roll data is stored and processed in Excel. Then the Excel file is uploaded with a special programme and generates roles and role changes. While this all looks very comfortable (and probably is at first), it has its drawbacks in the long run.
If you get into the situation that authorizations are required that were not considered in the role concept, "Shortcut for SAP systems" allows you to assign the complete authorization for the respective authorization object.
In addition, the SAIS transaction log entries for this audit activity are displayed in the upper right pane of the display.
When defining customised permission fields, you assign a name in the Field Name field that is in your Customer Name Room and assign the corresponding data element and, if desired, a table name for a value help.
