In SAP systems, authorization structures grow over the years. If, for example, there is a restructuring in the company or there are new organizations, there is a risk that the authorization concept no longer fits or is implemented correctly.
Historically grown authorization structures can be found especially in system landscapes that have been in operation for a long time. Instead of small, modular, job-specific roles, existing roles are continually expanded and assigned to different employees in different departments. While this leads to less administrative work in the short term, it causes the complexity of the role to increase massively over time. As a result, the efficiency of authorization development is increasingly lost.
Authorization object documentation
Don't simplify your entitlement concept before you know all the requirements, but first ask yourself what you need to achieve. So first analyse the processes (if possible also technically) and then create a concept. Many of the authorisation concepts we found in customers were not suitable to meet the requirements. Some of these were "grown" permission concepts (i.e., requests were repeatedly added) or purchased permission concepts. Many of these concepts had in common that they had been oversimplified, not simply. A nice example is permission concepts that summarise all organisational levels in value roles or organisational roles. There are few examples, such as the role manager of the industry solution SAP for Defence and Security, in which the result of a value role concept is still useful and appropriate for the user. The assumption that you "sometimes" separate all the authorization objects that contain an organisational level is simple, but not useful. We have not found the simplification that only a user without permissions can definitely not have illegal permissions. However, there was always the case that users had far too many permissions and the system was therefore not compliant.
The security check also shows when no redesign is necessary because the authorizations found are compatible with the current concept. The checks allow incorrect authorizations to be identified and rectified without a redesign.
For the assignment of existing roles, regular authorization workflows require a certain minimum of turnaround time, and not every approver is available at every go-live. With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you have options to assign urgently needed authorizations anyway and to additionally secure your go-live.
A clear role concept enables a modular structure of authorizations without having to create separate roles for each user.
