Permissions and User Root Sets Evaluations
The requirements in the third example to filter the Post Journal Display (transaction FAGLL03) can be implemented using the BAdIs FAGL_ITEMS_CH_DATA. Depending on the permissions granted, certain items or documents should be excluded from display. You can see the definition of BAdIs through the SE18 transaction, and in the SE19 transaction you create an implementation of the BAdIs in the Customer Name Room.

Depending on your SAP NetWeaver release status, you must include SAP Note 1731549 or a support package. After that, it is no longer possible to create new users whose names consist only of variants of spaces or non-visible special characters. Changes to existing users are still possible. The customising switch BNAME_RESTRICT, also included in SAP Note 1731549, allows you to control whether you want to allow alternate spaces at certain locations of the user ID.
User Information System SUIM
The most important security services regarding permissions are the EarlyWatch Alert (EWA) and the SAP Security Optimisation Service (SOS). You compare the settings in your SAP systems with the recommendations of SAP. Both services are delivered as partially automated remote services; You can also use the SOS as a fully automated self-service. The EWA and SOS shall carry out eligibility tests, the results of which shall always be as follows: The heading indicates the check in question. A short text describes the importance of the audited entitlement and the risk of unnecessary award. A list indicates the number of users with the validated permission in the different clients of the analysed SAP system. The SOS also allows you to list the users. In the SOS, a recommendation is made for each check to minimise the identified risk. A final formal description represents the checked permissions. However, not only the explicitly mentioned transactions are evaluated, but also equivalent parameter or variant transactions.

In order to be able to execute subsequent SAP standard reports, you need authorizations to access certain programs or reports and in the area of role maintenance. The transactions "SA38" and "SE38" for executing programs are of particular importance. They enable a far-reaching system analysis by means of certain programs for the end user. Additional rights associated with this, which can go beyond the basic rights of administrators, have to be controlled by explicit values in a dedicated manner.

However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".

Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.


The proposed values in the SU24 transaction are an imperative for the maintenance of PFCG roles, as these values are used when creating PFCG roles.

So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? That's what Scribble Papers is great for.


You can manage access to projects in the IMG via customising permissions and thus limit the user circle.
