Note the maintenance status of permissions in roles and their impact
Authorization tools are only as good as the person using them. Until now, no tool has made it possible to create ready-made authorization concepts with just a single click.
In order to perform an operation in the SAP system, several authorizations may be required. The resulting interrelationships can become very complex. In order to nevertheless offer a procedure that is manageable and easy to handle, the SAP authorization concept was implemented on the basis of authorization objects. Several system elements to be protected form an authorization object.
Risk: historically grown authorizations
Since developer authorizations correspond to full authorization, they should only be assigned restrictively. This applies above all to the authorization for "debugging with replace" (see "Law-critical authorizations"). The risk of incorrectly assigned developer authorizations has also increased due to the elimination of additional protection via developer and object keys in S/4 HANA systems (see, among other things, SAP Note 2309060). Developer authorizations for original SAP objects should therefore only be granted here upon request in order to avoid unauthorized modifications. If developer keys are still relevant in the existing SAP release, the existing developer keys in table DEVACCESS should first be checked and compared with the users intended for development.

The SAP CO module is the module for classic controlling in a company. Part (the responsible area) of it is the control and analysis of costs.

It is supported by the tools from the SAP CO module, which can provide comprehensive evaluations and analyses. SAP CO can be subdivided into several further subareas. These include, for example, CO-PC (Product Cost Accounting), CO-PA (Profitability Analysis) or PCA (Profit Center Accounting).
