Set up permissions to access specific CO-PA measures
The SAP_NEW profile is basically designed to bridge the release differences in eligibility checks after an upgrade and ensure that the established business processes remain executable after an upgrade. The SAP_NEW permission should only be assigned temporarily and only in emergencies in a productive SAP system after an upgrade.
In SAP systems, authorization structures grow over the years. If, for example, there is a restructuring in the company or there are new organizations, there is a risk that the authorization concept no longer fits or is implemented correctly.
With regard to the SAP authorization system, roles and the associated authorization objects, fields and values represent the foundation. Therefore, these check criteria are in the special focus of the authorization analysis of security-relevant characteristics of each authorization administrator. The report RSUSRAUTH is used to display role or authorization data in the respective client. The report analyzes all role data that are anchored in the table AGR_1251. This allows you to quickly find and clean up incorrect and security-critical authorizations not only by selecting the maintenance status of the authorizations, but above all by storing certain authorization objects and controlling them. This ad hoc analysis thus offers you a time-saving method of checking many roles at once according to your own critical characteristics. You can then make full use of this program by importing SAP Note 2069683.
Furthermore, automation is possible with the help of a customer-specific ABAP programme. To do this, you should take a closer look at the AGR_TEXTS table. The table contains the different text blocks in different languages. Here we show you a section of the table with our example role Z_SE63. Short texts are assigned a value of 00000 in the column LINE, and long texts are assigned a value of 00001 to 0000x. The language keys are displayed in the SPRAS column. An ABAP programme now allows you to write the counterparts for the text fields in the target language into the fields in the tables.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
To do this, select the Create Project button ( ) or the (F5) button.
The freeware Scribble Papers puts an end to the confusing paper chaos. The tool is also suitable for storing, structuring and quickly finding text documents and text snippets of all kinds in addition to notes.
Then, in the right part of the window, you will see all the applications logged.
