AUTHORIZATIONS IN SAP SYSTEMS
Set up permission to access Web Dynpro applications using S_START
In this article, I show you with which transaction you can easily and quickly run the authorization trace in SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA. The displayed result provides a good overview of the involved authorizations. In this course, existing roles and profiles in authorization management (transaction PFCG) can be extended. In addition, the authorization trace is useful for maintaining authorization default values (transactions SU22 and SU24).
Software license management is essential to get an accurate overview of all SAP transactions. We provide you with a transaction database in which the transactions are evaluated with named user license types. Your advantage: the actual usage of your SAP users is matched with the transaction database. "SAP direct access" analyzes the licenses for actual usage and classifies the critical cases. With SAP license optimization we maintain your individual license contracts and compare the results with LAW. We can point out discrepancies, including drill-down to user/client level, directly.
Define S_RFC permissions using usage data
From the result of the statistical usage data, you can see which transactions (ENTRY_ID) were used, how often (COUNTER), and how many different users. There are various indications from this information. For example, transactions that were used only once by a user within 12 months could indicate a very privileged user, or inadvertently invoking a transaction for which a user has permissions. The future assignment of such transactions in the SAP role concept should then be critically questioned. In contrast, you should consider transactions with a high level of usage and a large user circle (e.g. with more than ten users) in an SAP role concept.
In order to make a well-founded statement about the complexity and the associated effort, a fundamental system analysis is required in advance. The results obtained from this form an excellent basis for estimating the project scope and implementation timeframe.
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
Since there are many interfaces between the modules, the main organisational fields of the modules must be linked.
If the RFC (Remote Function Call) external access permissions are unneatly defined and assigned to the users, the S_TCODE authorization object quickly bypasses the primary protection for bootable applications.
