Risk: historically grown authorizations
This type of programming makes sense if large amounts of data have to be read. Before starting to read the data from the database, a DUMMY check can be used to quickly determine whether the user is authorized to access part of the data. However, as can be seen from the table above, a code must not only be secured by a general check, but must be supplemented by later, detailed checks. However, even in this context space (or ' ') does not need to be explicitly authorized.
A major advantage of SAP SuccessFactors is flexibility. Different project teams can implement and use several modules, processes or add-ons in a short time. The processes can be optimized again and again. A central basis for extensively digitized processes are structured specifications that regulate system access and control access rights. In this context, SAP offers the concept of role-based authorizations. Role-based SAP authorizations grant different groups of people different options for action and views in the system, e.g., regulate access to salary data. Role-based authorizations are flexible and facilitate global implementations of SAP SuccessFactors, e.g. in different national companies. Once implemented, roles and their authorizations can be quickly rolled out to the new region. The roles do not have to be completely reconfigured each time. Slight adjustments are all that is required.
Access to personal data in a company is a sensitive issue. It is essential to manage this access securely and to be able to provide information at any time about who has access to the data, when and in what way - and not just for the sake of the auditor. For this reason, the topic of SAP authorizations is a very important one, especially for the HR department.
The AL08 transaction displays all logged-in users and their application servers. In the Server Name column, you can see which application server the user is logged on to, and which has the permission issue. Switch to this application server by calling the SM51 transaction and double-clicking the application server you are looking for. On the application server that is now active, run the permission trace as usual and review the evaluation.

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.
