Security Automation for HR Authorizations
However, if a company does not have a concept for introducing new SAP authorizations and these are always coupled with new roles, the roles and authorizations will continue to grow. New modules, new processes and new user groups very quickly lead to many authorization groups, numerous authorization roles and complex documentation - even assuming the ideal case that companies have used Excel, for example, for all previous implementations and enhancements and have kept the documentation up to date. What is the purpose of a role? Which user has which authorization? Due to the amount of roles and authorizations, it quickly becomes confusing for users. System performance also suffers as the amount of data increases.
The SAP authorization default values are the basis for role creation and are also the starting point for SAP authorization management. For this purpose, the SU22 SAP authorization default values must be transported via SU25 into the customer-specific SU24 tables. The consistency of the default values should therefore be checked beforehand using the SU2X_CHECK_CONSISTENCY report. If inconsistencies exist, they can be corrected using the report SU24_AUTO_REPAIR. Detailed information regarding the procedure can be found in SAP Note 1539556. In this way, you can not only clean up your SU24 values, but at the same time achieve a high-performance starting position for role and authorization administration.
Checking at Program Level with AUTHORITY-CHECK
Access to personal data in a company is a sensitive issue. It is essential to manage this access securely and to be able to provide information at any time about who has access to the data, when and in what way - and not just for the sake of the auditor. For this reason, the topic of SAP authorizations is a very important one, especially for the HR department.
CREATE_EMAIL_CONTENT: The example implementation of this method generates the e-mail content. The user ID, the relevant system and the initial password are listed for each user. When the method is called in the Central User Management (ZBV), all initial passwords associated with the system in which the password was reset are listed. You should adapt the content of the e-mail to your requirements.
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
A red symbol will not be used in the eligibility tests in the EEA, as the rating has to be carried out individually for each enterprise.
It is often not known that the password rules also apply to users of the communication type.
