What are the advantages of SAP authorizations?
Check the SAP authorization concept
If you set the profile parameter dynamically, no users are logged out of the application server. You can prepare maintenance work in good time. The value 2 in the profile parameter does not prevent the login with the emergency user SAP*, if this is not set as user master record and the profile parameter login/no_automatic_user_sapstar is set to 0. You can also change the value of the parameter again at the operating system level. For details on the SAP user, see Tip 91, "Handling the default users and their initial passwords".
Authorization objects are defined with the help of transaction SU21. Each SAP transaction is equipped with the required authorization objects in SU24, which control access to specific functions within the respective program. Standard programs / transactions of an ERP system are already equipped with these objects during the initial installation. The same applies to other platforms such as CRM or Solution Manager.
The high manual maintenance effort of derived roles during organisational changes bothers you? Use the variants presented in this tip for mass maintenance of role derivations. Especially in large companies, it often happens that a worldwide, integrated ERP system is used, for example, for accounting, distribution or purchasing. You will then have to limit access to the various departments, for example to the appropriate booking groups, sales organisations or purchasing organisations. In the permission environment, you can work with reference roles and role derivations in such cases. This reduces your administrative overhead for maintaining functional permissions and reduces the maintenance effort for role derivations to adapt the so-called organisational fields. However, maintaining the organisational fields can mean enormous manual work for you, as the number of role derivations can become very large. For example, if your company has 100 sales organisations and 20 sales roles, you already have 2,000 role outlets. Here we present possible approaches to reduce this manual effort.
You can find the report RSUSR010 in the User Information System under the entry Transactions > Executable Transactions (all selections). You can run the report for users, roles, profiles, and permissions as described above. We will describe the evaluation for the users below (see figure next page above); for the other selection options, the operation of the report is analogous. The RSUSR010 report identifies all transactions that a user is allowed to start. In the list of executable transactions, you can then double-click on the transaction (for example, PFCG) to view the list of authorization objects and values for that transaction.
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.
SNC secures communication with or between ABAP systems, but there are also many web-based applications in SAP system landscapes.
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.
When using the Profile Generator, on the other hand, you do not need such detailed knowledge.
