Use table editing authorization objects
BASICS FOR USING SAP REPORTS
If your users are allowed to share their own background jobs, you need the JOBACTION = RELE permission to the S_BTCH_JOB object. In this case, you can start all jobs at the desired time. In many cases, background jobs are used for the professional or technical operation of applications; Therefore, we recommend that you schedule these background jobs under a System-Type technical user (see also Tip 6, "Note the impact of user types on password rules"). The advantage of this is that the permissions can be controlled more accurately and you do not run the risk of a job being lost if the user under whom it was scheduled to leave your company once. You can realise the association with a system user by giving the user who plans the job permission for the S_BTCH_NAM object. In the BTCUNAME field, the name of the step user, i.e. the user under whom the job should run, such as MUSTERMANN, is entered.
A typical application arises when a new SAP user is requested. The data owner now checks whether the person making the request and the person to be authorized are at all authorized to do so, what data would be affected, whether an SAP user already exists to whom new roles can be assigned and old ones revoked, whether data access can be limited in time, and so on.
Transactional and Native or Analytical Tiles in the FIORI Environment
The user administration process, i.e. user creation, modification and deactivation, should on the one hand be available in written documented form, either as a separate document or as part of the authorization concept documented in writing, and on the other hand also be carried out in accordance with the documentation. Therefore, a reconciliation should be performed on two levels: on the one hand, it should be ensured that the documentation is up to date and, on the other hand, it should be checked whether the process was also followed in the fiscal year to be audited. Possible deviations should already be prepared argumentatively, special cases can always occur that deviate from the actual process. However, these should be documented in a comprehensible manner so that an external auditor, such as the auditor's IT auditor, can check the plausibility. All documentation should be provided with the essential information (creator, date, version, etc.) and be in a format that cannot be changed (usually PDF). Additional documentation can also be output from the ticket system, provided that the process is consistently documented via the ticket system.
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).
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
The online course covers the following topics: - Introduction to the course - Why are SAP authorizations actually important? - How do SAP authorizations work technically? - Developing and maintaining roles - SAP Fiori authorizations/tile authorizations in S/4HANA - Developing authorization checks.
