You can also evaluate the application log through the SLG1 (ATAX object) transaction; the output of the report CA_TAXLOG seems more useful here. Finally, we have some important information for you: There are individual programmes that can be used read-only, but also offer options for updates to the database. In these cases, additional logic was implemented (e.g. in SAP Note 925217 to the RFUMSV00 programme for the sales tax pre-reporting). Action log data can be accessed via the transaction SLG2 (Object: ATAX) (see also SAP Note 530733). If you want to customise for the annual permissions directly in the production system (so-called "current setting"), the SAP Note 782707 describes how to do this. Basic information about Current Settings is provided in SAP Notes 135028 and 356483. SAP Note 788313 describes in detail the functional components of the time-space test and the additional logging and also serves as a "cookbook" to use in customer-specific developments. How you can prevent access to the SAP menu and only show the user menu to the user, we described in Tip 47, "Customising User and Permissions Management".

Service users are used for multi-person anonymous access, such as Web services. This type of user is also dialogical, i.e. it can log on to the SAP system via SAP GUI. With a service user, multiple logins are always possible, and password modification rules do not work. This behaviour has changed with the introduction of security policy. Because previously all password rules for the service user were invalid, and now the rules for the contents of the passwords also apply to the service user (see Tip 5, "Defining User Security Policy" for details on security policy). The password of a service user always has the status Productive and can only be changed by the user administrator.

Applications use the ABAP statement AUTHORITY-CHECK in the source code of the program to check whether the user has the appropriate authorizations and whether these authorizations are defined appropriately, that is, whether the user administrator has assigned the values required by the programmer for the fields. In this way, you can also protect transactions that are indirectly accessed by other programs. AUTHORITY-CHECK searches the profiles specified in the user master record for authorizations for the authorization object specified in the AUTHORITY-CHECK statement. If one of the determined authorizations matches one of the specified values, the check was successful.

This only takes into account the applications that are maintained in the role menus of the selected PFCG roles. If you have set the check for Only applications with changed SU22 data, only applications where the suggestion values have been changed by an import, e.g. by Support Packages or Enhancement Packages, will be used. Take the step to take the data from the SU22 transaction by selecting your applications. You will now get a list of applications that you need to match. Select the rows that the applications to match. The buttons in the menubar help you to adjust.

During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.

SAP Basis refers to the administration of SAP system that includes activities like installation and configuration, load balancing, and performance of SAP applications running on Java stack and SAP ABAP. This includes the maintenance of different services related to database, operating system, application and web servers in SAP system landscape and stopping and starting the system.

The menu can now be finally sorted.

So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? That's what Scribble Papers is great for.


Some of the risks are identified by potential security vulnerabilities in the ABAP code, most of which cannot be addressed by downstream measures and therefore need to be addressed in the code itself.
