You can also monitor security alerts from the Security Audit Log via the Alert Monitoring of your Computing Centre Management System (CCMS). The security warnings generated correspond to the audit classes of the events defined in the Security Audit Log. Many companies also have the requirement to present the events of the Security Audit Log in other applications. This requires evaluation by external programmes, which can be done via the XML Metadata Interchange (XMI) BAPIs. You must follow the XMI interface documentation to configure it. You can also use the RSAU_READ_AUDITLOG_ EXTERNAL sample programme as a template. A description of this programme can be found in SAP Note 539404.

The SAP authorization concept ensures that no unauthorized access can be made to transactions, programs and services in SAP systems. To call up business objects or execute transactions in the SAP system, a user therefore requires the appropriate authorizations. When called, the application started via a transaction checks whether the authorization exists and whether the user is allowed to perform the selected operation.

What's New from System Trace for Permissions! Here, features have been added that make recording and role maintenance much easier. Permission values in PFCG roles are maintained and debugging requires the use of the system trace for permissions. In the past, SAP customers have asked for more ease of use, since the trace evaluation is sometimes confusing.

Careful preparation is a prerequisite for a successful authorisation check. A functional specification must be created for all customer-specific functionalities. This forces us to think about what the actual requirements of the application are and then describe the possible implementation. In doing so, security-related aspects, such as eligibility testing and allocation, must be taken into account. Define what you can do with this programme and also what you cannot do explicitly! In the case of a permission check, not only the activity to be performed, such as reading, changing, creating, etc. , can be checked. You can also restrict access to records by using specific criteria, such as field content or organisational separators.

The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".

Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.
