Permissions with status
SAP FICO Authorizations
Of course, these objects can be adapted to the requirements of a company at any time. If a new program is required in the namespace of a company, the programmer decides which authorization objects should be checked in this program. If the standard objects do not meet the desired requirements, the programmer can create his own authorization objects that contain the required authorization fields.

As part of identifying authorization problems, it should be documented what the risks are if the current situation is maintained. Often, those responsible in the company do not want to make a correction because it causes costs and work. If the current concept works and security gaps are abstract, many people in charge are reluctant to change anything. For these reasons, the first step should be to document what problems and dangers lurk if the current concept is not corrected: First, the risk of fraud, theft, and data privacy and security breaches increases. Documentation can help identify where dangers lie. There is a fundamental problem of financial damage to the company if action is not taken. Another danger is that users will experiment with their authorizations and cause damage that can be avoided by having a clean authorization structure. Also a problem is the increased administrative overhead of granting and managing permissions. The effort increases if the current role assignments are not transparent and optimally structured.
Sustainably protect your data treasures with the right authorization management
Certain permissions that are not relevant until a job step is run are checked at the time of scheduling for the specified step user. This checks whether the selected user is authorised to run the specified ABAP programme or external command. For programmes associated with a permission group, the S_PROGRAM object is checked. External commands test for the object S_LOG_COM.

For users for which no user type has been defined in the ZBV, either the default user type of the subsidiary system or the user type defined by the local measurement programme (transaction USMM) run is reported in the Contractual User Type column. In this case, no value is reported in the Value column in the control centre. If the user type has been defined via a local run of the surveying programme and this type of user is not stored in the ZBV, you should re-import the licence data for this user from the subsidiary system into the ZBV using the transaction SCUG. If there are users in the daughter systems for which the value in the columns of the Contractual User Type and Value in ZBV Central differ, either the IDoc of the ZBV has not yet been processed, or the user type has been changed locally. In these cases, you should check what the differences are and also correct them.

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.
