Challenges in authorization management
How do I make an authorization trace on a user (STAUTHTRACE)? With the authorization trace you can record which authorization objects are used by a user. This helps, for example, in the creation of suitable roles: - Call the transaction STAUTHTRACE - Specify the desired user and start the trace - Let the user call his transaction - Stop the trace (Important, do not forget!) - Evaluate the results.
In each filter, you can define for which clients and users events should be recorded. You can record the events depending on their audit class or categorisation, or you can select them directly via the detail setting. For the Client and User selection criteria, you can use generic values, i.e. you can select all clients or users that meet specific naming criteria (e.g., Client 10* or User SOS_*). For example, you can filter the loggers of multiple emergency users.

Now the structure must be filled "with life". To do this, you must first create meaningful subfolders in the customer's own structure. As already mentioned, these are mostly based on the SAP modules. Make sure that you also set your customising for additional add-ons, so that later the work of support organisations is easier. Call the transaction SOBJ. There, you create customising objects that will later be reused in your IMG structure. It is useful to name the object exactly as the corresponding table. This simplifies the later maintenance in the IMG structure. Here you also decide whether and how the tables can possibly be maintained in the productive system. To do this, select the appropriate entries in the Category and Transport fields and check the Current setting option. Repeat this for all custom customising tables that are still needed.
There are many advantages to using an authorization tool for companies. These include: - Managing authorization requests - Distributing and assigning authorizations - Auditing authorizations - Developing authorizations. With the help of authorization tools, it is possible, for example, to drastically reduce the effort required for role creation and authorization management through concrete assignment of SAP system roles.
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
If you have set the check for Only applications with changed SU22 data, only applications where the suggestion values have been changed by an import, e.g. by Support Packages or Enhancement Packages, will be used.
The freeware Scribble Papers is a "note box" in which all kinds of data can be stored. It takes in typed texts as well as graphics and entire documents. The data is then organised in folders and pages.
Only current profile data is always recorded, so that obsolete profiles and permissions in the target system cannot be deleted by transport.
