SAP S/4HANA: Analysis and simple adjustment of your authorizations
Customise evaluation paths in SAP CRM for indirect role mapping
Especially in complex and multi-level system landscapes, roles may be assigned to a user twice. In addition, roles may also have expired due to the specification of a validity period. To keep your role concept and your user administration maintainable and clean, it is recommended to delete these obsolete roles. You can do this by clicking on the report PRGN_COMPRESS_TIMES. This program is also available via the PFCG under the system tab "Utilities" and category "Mass adjustment".
After defining the roles and generating the corresponding authorization profiles, the individual persons in the company are then assigned to the roles. In the process, the so-called user comparison takes place and the role-specific authorizations are stored in the user master record. The master record contains all information about an SAP user, including authorizations.
Automatically pre-document user master data
At the latest, if it is no longer possible to clearly define which transactions should be included in which roles and which roles a user requires, a correction is necessary. It must be clear which rights are required for the individual tasks in the system.
However, if a company does not have a concept for introducing new SAP authorizations and these are always coupled with new roles, the roles and authorizations will continue to grow. New modules, new processes and new user groups very quickly lead to many authorization groups, numerous authorization roles and complex documentation - even assuming the ideal case that companies have used Excel, for example, for all previous implementations and enhancements and have kept the documentation up to date. What is the purpose of a role? Which user has which authorization? Due to the amount of roles and authorizations, it quickly becomes confusing for users. System performance also suffers as the amount of data increases.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
