SAP Authorizations - Overview HCM Authorization Concepts
Translating texts into permission roles
There is a special feature for roles if the corresponding SAP system is based on S/4HANA. While under SAP ERP only roles with authorizations for the GUI system were relevant, corresponding business roles are required for the applications under FIORI. In addition to the roles in which authorization objects and authorization values are entered, so-called business roles are also required.

A universally applicable template for a reliable and functioning authorization concept does not exist due to the individuality and the different processes within each company. Therefore, the structures of the company and the relevant processes must be analyzed in detail during the creation process. Some core elements of the authorization concept to be created can be defined in advance. These include the overarching goal, the legal framework, a naming convention, clarification of responsibilities and process flows for both user and authorization management, and the addition of special authorizations. Only with clearly defined responsibilities can the effectiveness of a concept be guaranteed.
User master data
Transaction SE63 allows you to translate a variety of text in the SAP system. You can find the relevant texts for the eligibility roles via the menu path: Translation > ABAP Objects > Short Texts In the pop-up window Object Type Selection that appears, select the S3 ABAP Texts node and select the ACGR Roles sub-point.

We now want to describe the necessary settings in the sending application using the example of encrypted sending of initial passwords. To implement this requirement, you can use the BAdI BADI_IDENTITY_UPDATE. This BAdI is also only available via a support package starting from SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.31. For details on the relevant support packages, see SAP Note 1750161. To implement the BAdIs, use the transaction SE18; there you can also see the example class CL_EXM_IM_IDENTITY_UPDATE. For the BAdI BADI_ IDENTITY_UPDATE, you must implement the SAVE method to the IF_BADI_IDENTITY_UPDATE interface.

During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.

The website www.sap-corner.de offers many useful information about SAP basis.


Basic authorizations, which are identical for every user, are only stored once in a platform role.

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.


There, you create customising objects that will later be reused in your IMG structure.
