Authorizations in SAP systems: what admins should look out for
SAP Security Automation
For the configuration, you must first enable encryption and, if necessary, signing in the SAPConnect administration. To do this, go to Settings > Outgoing Messages > Settings on the Signing & Encryption tab of the SCOT transaction. Note that the activation only enables the encryption or signature of emails; whether this is actually done always controls the sending application.

Reference users are not intended to access an SAP system, but are used for authorisation administration and therefore always have a disabled password. Reference users inherit the permissions assigned to them to the users with whom the reference user is registered. For this purpose, the user buffer of the reference user is also created at login and these entries are also checked during permission checks of the inheriting user.

Now switch to User Care and you will find that this PFCG role is not yet assigned to your user. To do this, you must first perform the user master synchronisation. You can perform this manually via the transaction PFUD or schedule it as a job. The background job PFCG_TIME_DEPENDENCY or the report RHAUTUPD_NEW is intended for this.

Put the values of the permission trace into the role menu: The applications (transactions, web-dynpro applications, RFCBausteine or web services) are detected through their startup permissions checks (S_TCODE, S_START, S_RFC, S_SERVICE) and can be added to the role menu of your role. In your role, go to the Menu tab and import these applications by clicking Apply Menus and selecting Import from Trace. A new window will open. Here you can evaluate the trace and view all recognised applications in the right window. To do this, click the Evaluate Trace button and select System Trace (ST01) > Local. In a new System Trace window, you can specify the evaluation criteria for the trace, such as the user using the Trace field only for users or the time period over which to record. Then click Evaluate. Then, in the right part of the window, you will see all the applications logged. Select the applications you want to apply to the Roles menu and click Apply. You can now decide how the applications appear in the Role menu. The application can be added to the role either as a permission proposal or as a menu item through the Add drop-down box. They can be displayed as a list or as a panel menu (insert as list) or according to the SAP menu tree in which the application is stored in the SAP menu (insert as SAP menu).

Assigning a role for a limited period of time is done in seconds with "Shortcut for SAP systems" and allows you to quickly continue your go-live.

However, authorization objects are also used in other places, such as suggestion value maintenance and permission maintenance.

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.


If a user group is not assigned when a user is created, the user is automatically assigned the default user group.
