Architecture of authorization concepts
Redesign of SAP® Authorizations
If such information is available from the past, it should be checked whether all topics have been implemented in accordance with the comments. If one or the other recommendation has not been implemented, this circumstance should in any case be documented in a comprehensible manner, or it should be possible to provide a comprehensible justification. However, it is not sufficient to focus only on the improvement potentials that have been presented, because it must be ensured that all those points that have not been criticized in the past will continue to fit. Preparation is made much more difficult if there are no helpful comments or reports from the previous fiscal year, or if it is a first-time audit or a change of auditor.

This may be surprising at first glance, but it can almost always be fixed by a short analysis.

The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
