Prevent excessive permissions on HR reporting
Goal of an authorization concept
Native or analytical tiles: These tiles work exclusively in the FIORI interface and are adapted to the new technology. Here, for example, push messages are displayed on the tile, or key figures, diagrams, etc. are displayed, which can then be processed directly with a click. These tiles do not have direct GUI access, or cannot be used directly in the GUI environment. As mentioned above, access to these tiles is provided in a so-called front-end system via corresponding catalogs and groups. However, the underlying conceptual permissions (who is allowed to do what within the functionality of the tile) follows the same processes as in the "old world" for transaction access. The tile in the front-end needs here corresponding dependent distinctive authorizations (keyword: SU24 adjustment). In the back-end system, then again - analogous to the "old" world - about a role, which is built in the profile generator and maintained on object and field level, or set. Of course, topics such as updating internal and third-party tools, integrating cloud solutions, modern hybrid infrastructures, defining and operating ongoing dynamic changes, etc. must also be taken into account here.

This information is used in the name generation of the external service. In this way, all area start pages and logical links configured in a CRM business role are authorised in the form of external services. Due to the mass of external services that appear in the role menu, it is difficult to keep track of them. Now, to allow only certain external services, you can do the following: First, identify the external service using the permission trace.
SAP license optimization
If your users are allowed to share their own background jobs, you need the JOBACTION = RELE permission to the S_BTCH_JOB object. In this case, you can start all jobs at the desired time. In many cases, background jobs are used for the professional or technical operation of applications; Therefore, we recommend that you schedule these background jobs under a System-Type technical user (see also Tip 6, "Note the impact of user types on password rules"). The advantage of this is that the permissions can be controlled more accurately and you do not run the risk of a job being lost if the user under whom it was scheduled to leave your company once. You can realise the association with a system user by giving the user who plans the job permission for the S_BTCH_NAM object. In the BTCUNAME field, the name of the step user, i.e. the user under whom the job should run, such as MUSTERMANN, is entered.

Some queries are also a bit complicated with the SUIM transaction. With SAP Query, you can quickly assemble queries that enable individual and more complex data evaluations. Do you want to know quickly which valid users currently have a modified access to a particular table, or what roles are users granted permission for a particular transaction? The SAP standard tool, the user information system, is an excellent solution for this type of data retrieval. However, at the latest during the next review, targeted queries with data combinations - and thus several SUIM query sequences - must be delivered within a short time. SAP queries can facilitate this task. An SAP Query is essentially a clear way to scan tables for specific data away from the SE16 transaction. There is the possibility to link multiple tables (join), which makes multiple SE16 queries just one SAP query. For example, if you want to know what roles users are entitled to perform the SCC4 transaction, you can use the SUIM transaction to query to determine which users can perform the transaction and view the roles that enable it in another query, but there is no result that shows both.

Secure your go-live additionally with "Shortcut for SAP systems". You can assign necessary SAP authorizations quickly and easily directly in the system.

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.


In addition, it may only be approved and activated after a justified request and only under the dual control principle.

The freeware Scribble Papers is a "note box" in which all kinds of data can be stored. It takes in typed texts as well as graphics and entire documents. The data is then organised in folders and pages.


With this correction, the report SU25_INITIALIZE_TSTMP is delivered, which allows to write the current timestamps of your data from the transaction SU22 into the respective timestamp tables USOBT_TSTMP and USOBX_TSTMP.
