Immediate authorization check - SU53
User Information System (SUIM)
SAP*: The SAP* user is part of the SAP kernel, and since it is hard-coded in the SAP system, it does not require a user master set. If there is no user master set for SAP*, anyone can log on to the SAP system after rebooting with this user, as the default password will then apply. The user thus has access to all functions, since Authority Checks in this case do not take effect. You can prevent this behaviour by setting the login/no_automatic_user_sapstar profile parameter to 1. If you want to copy clients, you have to set this parameter to 0 again before you do so, because the user SAP* is required for this. Safeguard measures: Despite the parameter setting, the SAP user should have a user master set in all clients. However, you should remove all profiles and lock the user. In addition, change the password, assign the user to the SUPER user group, and log it with the Security Audit Log.
The Security Audit Log (SAL) has ten different filters in the current releases, which control which events are logged. You can configure these filters via the SM19 transaction. The events are categorised as uncritical, serious or critical.
Authorizations in SAP BW, HANA and BW/4HANA
Authorization tools in the SAP GRC Suite ensure that every company can design a highly automated compliance management system that fits exactly. The majority of German companies with an SAP system do not yet use authorization tools. However, the use of SAP authorization tools is a great advantage for many companies. The extent to which the use of authorization tools makes sense depends on the size of a company.
From release 10.1, SAP Access Control supports the creation of users and the assignment of roles and privileges in HANA databases. If you use the concept of business roles in SAP Access Control, you can achieve an automatic installation of the users in SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP and HANA database and the assignment of the ABAP and HANA technical roles (or privileges) when assigning a business role.
The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
SAP Basis refers to the administration of SAP system that includes activities like installation and configuration, load balancing, and performance of SAP applications running on Java stack and SAP ABAP. This includes the maintenance of different services related to database, operating system, application and web servers in SAP system landscape and stopping and starting the system.

If the input was not done correctly, the dialogue was sometimes not transparent and confusing for the user.
