SAP Authorizations - Overview HCM Authorization Concepts
Limitations of authorization tools
If you have defined the roles to the extent that the essential processes are depicted, then you will technically check which organisational features they contain (organisational levels, but also cost centres, organisational units, etc.). You then compare the technical result with the result from the consideration of the structure organisation and the business role description. A likely result is that you do not have to use all technical organisational features for differentiation. A possible result is that you want to add fields such as the cost centre to the organisation level.
Last but not least, a well-managed suggestion value maintenance helps you with upgrade work on suggestion values and PFCG roles. This ensures that your changes and connections to the respective PFCG roles are retained and new permissions checks for the new release are added to the applications.

In addition, you can also define customised permission checks in the SOS and also define combinations of authorization objects and their values. You can create up to 1,000 custom permissions checks in the Check ID namespace 9000 to 9999. You can also redefine whitelists for these permission checks, which apply to either individual or all of the customer's permission checks. The configuration is described in SAP Note 837490.
Both solutions offer you the added value of centralised reporting of existing users, newly created users, and role assignments. You can also extend the integrated workflows of both solutions to HANA permission applications. This enables you to use the risk analysis of the SAP Access Control solution also in relation to critical HANA permissions.
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.
SAP Basis is the foundation of any SAP system. You can find a lot of useful information about it on this page: www.sap-corner.de.
With SAP Note 1759777, a selection is offered for step 2a, with which this step can be simulated.
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.
These are displayed in the role menu of the PFCG role.
