Optional: S_PATH authorization object: If the test identifies 3 additional permissions checks for individual paths for the S_PATH authorization object, these are checked in the fourth step. The access type and the permission group stored in the SPTH table are checked.

The permissions on database objects show you the details of the user's permissions to access the object. In the following example, the MODELING role includes permission to use the _SYS_BI object with the EXECUTE, SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE privileges. In addition, a user assigned this role is not allowed to pass these privileges on to other users (Grantable to Others). Our role as an example also includes Analytical Privileges and Package Privileges, which are not discussed here.
Permissions checks
Your compliance requirements specify that background jobs that are used should be maintained with permission proposals? We'll show you how to do that. Particularly in the banking environment, there are very strict guidelines for the permissions of background jobs used for monthly and quarterly financial statements, etc. Only selected users or dedicated system users may have these permissions. In order to clearly distinguish these permissions from the end-user permissions, it is useful to explicitly maintain the permissions for specific background jobs with suggestion values, so that these values can be used repeatedly to maintain permissions and are therefore transparent. You may have noticed that in the transaction SU24 you have no way to maintain background job credentials. So what's the best way to do that?

Typically, users access a table's data through applications rather than directly. If so, you should take precautions and restrict access to sensitive data. End users typically do not access table-level data directly, but the data is displayed in business applications and their display is restricted in context by means of entitlement checks. However, there are cases where generic access to tables via the SE16, SE16N, SM30, SM31 or SM34 transaction is required for administrators, key users, verifiers, etc. For example, a verifier should have read access to all customising tables. However, you do not want to display security-related tables. Key users should be able to access certain reports regularly, but only read information relevant to their work. There are several ways to restrict access to tables by using table tools. This means that users can only access tables or table contents that they want to see. However, we would like to point out that the granting of permissions for these tools in the production environment is considered to be critical to security, since it is very easy to allow access to large amounts of sensitive data in the case of erroneous or excessive permissions. Therefore, only apply these permissions in a restricted way.

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

Every SAP system (ERP) must be migrated to SAP S/4HANA® in the next few years.

A note box in which data of all kinds can be quickly filed and retrieved. This is what Scribble Papers promises. At first, the program looks very spartan. But once a small structure is in place, you realise the great flexibility of this little helper.


As a general rule, you should always run bulk transport sharing in the background.
