Immediate authorization check - SU53
Coordinate authorisation management in customer-owned programmes
Our example role MODELING makes it clear that it is possible to assign different types of privilege to a role. The SAP HANA Studio shows you in the administration interface which user (the so-called grantor) has assigned the respective privilege to this role (granted). By filtering and sorting, you can optimise the appearance of the role content. Depending on the type of privilege, you will be presented with the appropriate details by selecting an entry.
I show how SAP authorizations can be assessed and monitored by using the Three Lines of Defense model. This method can be applied even if the model is not used for all enterprise risks. You will learn how to integrate the different stakeholders into the lines of defense and harmonize the knowledge for the process. Also, what tools can be used for controls and cleanups in each case. This ensures, for example, that managers are able to assess the risks and derive measures, and that administrators can technically clean up the risks.
With more than 28 users, the simple Copy & Paste in the user selection no longer works. However, this does not mean that you have to care for all users individually! It is common for you to make mass changes to users in the SAP system, such as changing role assignments, locking a group of users, or having to adjust their validity dates. Unfortunately, there is no button in the start image of the transaction SU10 that allows users to be pasted from the clipboard. While Copy & Paste allows you to insert users from the clipboard, this feature is limited to the visible area. Therefore, it is not possible to add a list of more than 28 users, which can be very difficult for long lists.
Which users have a specific role (PFCG)? To answer this question you start with the transaction PFCG - the mother of all transactions in the environment of SAP roles and authorizations. Select a role and click on the "Users" tab.
For the assignment of existing roles, regular authorization workflows require a certain minimum of turnaround time, and not every approver is available at every go-live. With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you have options to assign urgently needed authorizations anyway and to additionally secure your go-live.
Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.
Create a message to be displayed to the user when permissions checks fail.
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.
As of Release 7.40, you can optionally switch on a check for the object S_PROGNAM.
