Query Data from Active Directory
User and authorization management
In addition to your custom authorization objects, you must also express the other relevant CO-PA authorization objects in your users' permissions. As a rule, you must limit access to the result reports of the K_KEB_REP object to the result area and the report name, and limit the functions of the information system in the K_KEB_TC object, such as executing or updating reports. You also need permissions to maintain the authorization objects in customising the result and market segment calculations. To do this, assign permissions to the K_KEPL_BER object. In the CERKRS field, define the result area for which authorization objects are created, and in the ACTVT field, define the activity, where the action 02 is Create and Modify.

The security policy was introduced with the SAP NetWeaver 7.31 release; for their use you need at least this release. Security policies thus replace the definition of password rules, password changes, and login restrictions via profile parameters. The security policy is assigned to the user in transaction SU01 on the Logon Data tab. Profile parameter settings remain relevant for user master records that have not been assigned a security policy. Some of the profile parameters are also not included in the security policy and therefore still need to be set system-wide. Security policy always includes all security policy attributes and their suggestion values. Of course, you can always adjust the proposed values according to your requirements. You define security policy about the SECPOL transaction. Select the attributes for which you want to maintain your own values and enter the values accordingly. The Descendable Entries button displays the attributes that are not different from the global entries.

These default users use initial passwords that are well known. Close this vulnerability by changing the passwords and protecting the default users from unauthorised use. In this tip we will show you how you can clarify the status of your standard users' passwords and give you recommendations on the settings of your profile parameters.

Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
