Include customising tables in the IMG
Consolidate user-level role mapping
In the foreground, important SAP reports on the subject of role and authorization administration were presented. Since these and the entire SAP system are known to be based on ABAP coding, the analysis of the source code is just as important, especially when using in-house developments. These in-house developments often present serious security vulnerabilities because they have insufficient authorization checks in the coding. To search for explicit strings and to categorize the in-house developments accordingly, the report RS_ABAP_SOURCE_SCAN can be used. This allows existing programs in the backend to be explicitly checked for specific check patterns by the authorization administrator and any errors to be corrected by the relevant developers. Authorization-relevant check patterns for such a scan are, for example, "AUTHORITY-CHECK" or SQL statements such as SELECT, UPDATE or DELETE. The former checks whether authorization checks are present in the source code at all. The check for Open SQL patterns analyzes the code structure for direct SELECT, MODIFY or INSERT statements that must be avoided or protected on the authorization side. The best practice measure in this case is to use SAP BAPIs. The preventive best practice would be to involve developers and authorization administrators equally during the conceptual design of the custom development.

In the simulation overview you will now receive all the information you already know from the authorisation maintenance in the transaction PFCG. The results are presented in a table where each row corresponds to a value interval of a permission. The Object column specifies the authorization object. Use the Active/Inactive column to determine if the permission has been disabled. The Maintenance Status and Update Status columns provide information about the status of the permission and how the permission has been updated. In the Permissions Comparison column, you can find out what exactly changed on the permission, such as whether a permission has been deleted or added anew, or whether the field values in the permission have been updated. You can find information about the field values in the Value Comparison column, which shows whether values have remained the same, whether they have been added or deleted. The values that were actually deleted and added can be seen in the columns from Value to Value (see figure next page). Please note that this is only a simulation. You must still perform the actual mixing process in the permission maintenance. Because reel mixing is not only a factor in upgrade work, the transaction SUPC also provides the ability to call this simulation mode. In the overview of the selected rolls you will find the button Mix which simulates the mixing process.
Use application search in transaction SAIS_SEARCH_APPL
Since 2001, SAP has been working with the German-speaking SAP user group (DSAG e. V.) Model rolls for tax inspectors developed and revised over the years. The role definition reflects an interpretation of the DSAG of the concept of tax-relevant data.

Since Release 4.6D, the system creates a new folder for each of the roles included in the pulley when rebuilding a Collective Roll menu at the first hierarchy level, and only then the corresponding menu is located. You can decide whether the text of each folder should consist of the technical name or the short text of the role. This function can be disabled by customising.

"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.

If the status is yellow, there are different value ranges for the field within the role; the role must therefore be adjusted.

So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? Scribble Papers is a "note box" that makes this very easy.


This allows cross-client operations on any job.
