Task & functionality of the SAP authorization concept
As with an SAP_NEW role, it is possible to generate an SAP_APP role. As with the SAP_APP profile, all permissions are included here, except the base permissions and the HCM permissions. The ability to create this role with the report REGENERATE_SAP_APP exists after inserting the SAP note 1703299. This report generates a role that is fully usable for all applications. However, we recommend using this role only for development and test systems.
User master record - Used to log on to the SAP system and grants restricted access to SAP system functions and objects via the authorization profiles specified in the role. The user master record contains all information about the corresponding user, including authorizations. Changes only take effect the next time the user logs on to the system. Users already logged on at the time of the change are not affected by the changes.
Make mass changes in the table log
It is best if the persons responsible for the system develop role descriptions with their departments in advance and document them outside SAP SuccessFactors (e.g., as in Fig. 2). In case of queries, they can use this basis to explain exactly why someone has been given a certain authorization. The role descriptions and the report help to work in a DSGVO-compliant manner. Since the report updates automatically, companies have no additional effort to document the changes - one less unloved (and often "forgotten") task.
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.
The permission checks are logged as part of the system trace in transaction ST01. It records all permission checks and validated permission values for a specific application server, and specifies, depending on the client, whether the permission checks were successful or not. The Trace display has now been improved (see also SAP Note 1373111).
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
In the editor of your test configuration, the record you created is located at the bottom of the text box.
Let's look at the effects of different programming on a simplified example.
