Authorization tools - advantages and limitations
Lock Inactive Users
This solution is only available with a support package starting with SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.31 and requires a kernel patch. For details on the relevant support packages, see SAP Note 1750161. In addition, the SAP Cryptographic Library must be installed; but this is ensured by the required kernel patch. Only if you have manually made a different configuration, you must check this requirement.
You use the RSUSR010 report and you do not see all transaction codes associated with the user or role. How can that be? The various reports of the user information system (SUIM) allow you to evaluate the users, permissions and profiles in the SAP system. One of these reports, the RSUSR010 report, shows you all executable transactions for a user, role, profile, or permission. Users of the report are often unsure about what this report actually displays, because the results do not necessarily correspond to the eligible transactions. Therefore, we clarify in the following which data are evaluated for this report and how these deviations can occur.
Essential authorizations and parameters in the SAP® environment
Conceptually, the user types Database User and Technical User are distinguished. Database users are users that represent a real person in the database. As soon as a Database User is deleted, all (!) database objects created by this Database User are also deleted. Technical users are users who perform technical tasks in the database. Examples include the SYS and _SYS_REPO users, which allow administrative tasks such as creating a new database object or assigning privileges.
Another important factor that should be considered in an authorization concept is to use a uniform naming convention because, on the one hand, many things cannot be changed after the initial naming and, on the other hand, this ensures searchability in the SAP system. In addition, the preset authorization roles of the SAP system should never be overwritten or deleted, but only copies of them should be created, which can then be adapted as desired.
However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".
SAP Basis is the foundation of any SAP system. You can find a lot of useful information about it on this page: www.sap-corner.de.
To reduce waiting times, you should archive the documents and set a logical index for key change documents.
A note box in which data of all kinds can be quickly filed and retrieved. This is what Scribble Papers promises. At first, the program looks very spartan. But once a small structure is in place, you realise the great flexibility of this little helper.
In our example, these are the BKPF and BSEG structures and the system variables.
