Bypass Excel-based Permissions Traps
Check for permissions on the old user group when assigning a new user group to a user
Structural authorizations have a so-called root object, i.e. a starting point and an associated evaluation path. The organization chart of the company is stored in SAP HCM. This makes it possible to see how which positions are linked to each other. If a specific piece of information about an employee is required, it can be read out via a path. At the end there is a list of objects.
When it comes to preparing for the auditor, it should definitely be checked whether all critical authorizations, as well as the important parameters, have been correctly assigned or set up in SAP®. The specifications for this should all be defined in the authorization concept documented in writing and must also be consistent with this. In this context in particular, however, it is not always easy to check all the essential points using the SAP® standard on-board tools. This is where the experienced auditors at IBS Schreiber GmbH can provide support.
Limit character set for user ID
You can use the system trace function (transaction ST01) to record the authorization checks in all modes, if the trace and the transaction to be traced run on the same application server. All object fields and their values are recorded during the authorization object check.
In general, you should note that not all relevant change documents of a system are present in the user and permission management. As a rule, authorisation administration takes place in the development system; Therefore, the relevant proof of amendment of the authorisation management is produced in the development systems. By contrast, you will find the relevant user administration change documents in the production systems; Therefore, you should note that when importing roles and profiles in the production systems, no change documents are written. Only transport logs are generated that indicate that changes have been made to the objects. For this reason, the supporting documents of the development systems' authorisation management are relevant for revision and should be secured accordingly.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
This also helps to improve existing roles and to create new roles for the authorization model in SAP.
You can delete them without any concern, because an external service for a permission must appear only once in the Role menu.
