Define a user group as mandatory field in the user root
The requirements for the architecture of authorization concepts are as individual as the requirements of each company. Therefore, there is no perfect template. Nevertheless, there are topics that should be considered in an authorization concept.
Finally, you can extend your implementation of the BAdIs BADI_IDENTITY_SU01_CREATE and pre-enter additional fields of the transaction SU01. To do this, complete the appropriate SET_* methods of the IF_IDENTITY interface. For example, it is possible to assign parameters that should be maintained for all users, assign a company, or assign an SNC name.
A careless handling of the permissions with sensitive employee data can go quite nicely in the pants. Prevent uncontrolled and extensive reporting access to your HCM data by properly using the P_ABAP authorization object. In many companies, the correct use of P_ABAP is not known. As a result, there are often false expressions that, in the worst case, allow uncontrolled reporting access to all data in the logical database PNPCE (or PNP). This way, you can again erase your access restrictions, which were previously painstakingly defined in a permission concept. Therefore, it is necessary to test the use of P_ABAP in individual cases and to use the existing limitations. In the following we describe the logic behind this authorization object and what it is important to avoid.
In an SAP® system, authorizations are not the only focus of the auditor. Essential system parameters are also part of the audit. For this reason, it should also be ensured in advance that all parameters are set up in accordance with the company's specifications. The parameters concerned are all those that ensure system and client security. Among other things, it must be ensured that the production system is protected against any kind of changes and therefore no direct development is possible.
If you get into the situation that authorizations are required that were not considered in the role concept, "Shortcut for SAP systems" allows you to assign the complete authorization for the respective authorization object.
For pure translation, you can use the transaction SE63, which we explain in the first section of this tip.
So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? That's what Scribble Papers is great for.
The user administration process, i.e. user creation, modification and deactivation, should on the one hand be available in written documented form, either as a separate document or as part of the authorization concept documented in writing, and on the other hand also be carried out in accordance with the documentation.
