WHY ACCESS CONTROL
Assignment of roles
Which authorization data does a role have (PFCG)? Again, start the transaction PFCG and display a role. Then branch to the tab Authorizations and click on the button with the "glasses" (bottom left): Display authorization data.
The SAP authorization concept also maps the organization of authorizations within the SAP system. The organizational structure defines responsibilities and the authorization hierarchy, while the process organization specifies process steps and the activities and authorization objects required for them in SAP. The authorization concept must therefore be flexible enough to allow future changes in the organization to be implemented quickly and in compliance with the rules.
Insert SAP Note 1171185 into your ZBV system. With this notice, the report RSUSR_SYSINFO_LICENSE is delivered, which retrieves and displays the user types from the systems connected to the ZBV. In addition, however, SAP Note 1307693, which contains new functionalities of licence measurement, must be installed on the subsidiary systems connected to the ZBV. In addition, you may need to extend the permissions of the users in the RFC connections to the ZBV's subsidiary systems by the permissions to the S_RFC object with the SUNI and SLIM_REMOTE_USERTYPES function groups. If the SAPHinkling 1307693 is not installed on a subsidiary system, or the RFC user's permissions have not been adjusted accordingly, the RSUSR_SYSINFO_LICENSE report in the application log (transaction SLG1) will issue a warning.
So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? Scribble Papers is a "note box" that makes this very easy.
SAP customers do not maintain suggested values in this transaction. However, there are cases where data in the SU22 transaction is maintained in a customer environment. If TADIR services or external services are developed by the customer or partner, these services are not available by default in the SU22 transaction or the SU24 transaction. For these services, the header data must first be written to the USOBHASH table, which serves as the basis for maintaining the services. These entries in the USOBHASH table are generated automatically when running TADIR services. Read Tip 41, "Add external services from SAP CRM to the proposal values", for dealing with external services. Once the data in this table is available, you have the option to maintain the proposed values.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
But we can tell you from experience: After the second or third time, the creation of the test scripts is so quick that you'll wonder why you haven't always done it this way.
Note that this can be a very large number of transactions and can therefore take longer.
