Solution approaches for efficient authorizations
Full verification of user group permissions when creating the user
In the area of group consolidation, an authorization concept ensures that no data can be deliberately manipulated, for example to change balance sheets. This can prevent significant financial or reputational damage to banks and stakeholders. Furthermore, access to financial data of subdivisions of a group, such as individual business units or companies, must be restricted to those employees who are allowed to access it because their current activities require it. As a result, a controller of a business unit, for example, can only view the consolidated figures of his business unit, but not the figures of the entire group. Further authorization roles are required, for example, for external auditors. These auditors check all the figures for the entire group, but may only have read access to this data.
The view of the executable transactions may differ from the transactions for which the user has permissions, because the RSUSR010 report displays only the transactions that are actually executable. Not only does the transaction need to be started by the S_TCODE authorization object, but the following conditions must also be met: For certain transactions, there are additional permission checks that are performed before the transaction starts. These eligibility objects are then additionally entered in the transaction SE93 (Table TSTCA). For example, queries against the P_TCODE, Q_TCODE, or S_TABU_DIS authorization objects. The transaction code must be valid (i.e. entered in the TSTC table) and must not be locked by the system administrator (in the SM01 transaction).
