Background processing
User Interface Client Permissions
Entry into role maintenance requires the transport permission (S_USER_AGR, ACTVT = 02) in addition to the modification permission (S_USER_AGR, ACTVT = 21). If role recording requires creating new transport jobs or tasks, you need permissions to the transport objects (e.g. S_TRANSPRT with TTYPE = CUST or TASK and ACTVT = 02).

After you have determined the data for the website, you must now generate the initial password and send it by e-mail and unlock the user if necessary. There are also different solutions - we describe a possible course of action. You can generate a password using the GENERATE_PWD import parameter of the BAPI BAPI_USER_CHANGE. The generated password is then set as the initial password and must be changed at the next login by the user. You must also set the PASSWORDX import parameter to display a password change. The generated password is returned using the export parameter GENERATED_PASSWORD. This is required if you want to call the BAPI BAPI_USER_CHANGE from a central system (e.g. from the ZBV) and send the relevant e-mail from that system. You should never save this password, but include it directly in your application in an email. Subsequently, you send this e-mail to the user whose e-mail address you can determine either directly in the SAP system (parameter ADDSMTP of BAPI_USER_GET_DETAIL) or within the scope of your web application (e.g. from the AD). Even if you find the email address in the AD, we advise you not to send the email from there. To avoid the password being unnecessarily transferred, it is better to initiate the despatch within your central SAPS system. In addition, we strongly advise you to send the emails encrypted with the initial passwords. To do this, the implementation of your self-service must set the encryption flag when creating the email. We describe details about the encryption of emails and an alternative sending of the initial password directly from the affected SAP system in Tip 98, "Encrypt emails".
Solution approaches for efficient authorizations
You can schedule background jobs in the SM36 and SA38 transactions, but also in a variety of application transactions. It is important to know that special permissions are not necessary for the installation, modification, etc. of your own jobs. An exception is the release of background jobs; it is protected by a permission. Permissions are also required for the activities on other users' background jobs, and the following authorization objects are available in SAP backend processing: S_BTCH_JOB controls the access rights to other users' jobs. S_BTCH_NAM allows you to schedule programmes under a different user ID. S_BTCH_ADM grants parent permissions that are usually only required by administrators.

Historically grown authorization structures can be found especially in system landscapes that have been in operation for a long time. Instead of small, modular, job-specific roles, existing roles are continually expanded and assigned to different employees in different departments. While this leads to less administrative work in the short term, it causes the complexity of the role to increase massively over time. As a result, the efficiency of authorization development is increasingly lost.

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.


The SAP_ALL profile is still frequently used there instead of concrete roles.

To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.


You can see that organisational levels have been maintained manually when you enter values via the Ormits button, but the changes are not applied to the authorization object.
