Authorization concept - user administration process
HR authorizations are a very critical issue in many companies. On the one hand, HR administrators should be able to perform their tasks - on the other hand, the protection of employees' personal data must be ensured. Any error in the authorization system falls within the remit of a company's data protection officer.
Add SAP Note 1695113 to your system. With this note, the RSUSR200 and RSUSR002 reports are extended by the selection of different user locks or validity. In the selection, you can now distinguish whether you want to include or exclude users with administrator or password locks in the selection. In addition, you can select in the report RSUSR200 whether the users should be valid on the day of selection or not. To do this, select whether you want to select the user locks as set (01 set) or not set (02 not set) in the selection screen of the RSUSR200 report in the Locking after Lock section of the User Locks (Administrator) field. This includes local and global administrator locks. In the same section, you can also select the password locks (false logins) as set (01 set) or not set (02 not set). This will filter for users that are locked because of incorrect password messages and for which a password login is no longer possible. You can select these selection criteria together or separately. Alternatively, you can also use the Use only users without locks option and additionally, in the Selecting after the user is valid between user today and user today, select not valid.
If you have created your own applications, we recommend that you always implement your own permission check and do not just rely on application startup permissions such as S_TCODE, S_START, S_SERVICE, and S_RFC. If you want to add your own checks to standard applications, you must first find the appropriate place to implement the check. To develop without modification, SAP offers user-exits or business add-ins (BAdIs) for such cases. Some SAP applications also have their own frameworks in place that allow customisation-free implementation of their own permission checks, such as the Access Control Engine (ACE) in SAP CRM.
Role selection for mass transport uses the default value help, which offers the Multiple Selection button. Thus, you no longer have to go through the Value Helper (F4) to perform multiple selection of roles, and the restriction of selected roles to the visible rows is eliminated.
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
You can automate the translation of the texts by using the LSMW transaction.
