Dissatisfaction and unclear needs in the process
Use timestamp in transaction SU25
The default authorization roles of the new SAP system for consolidation and planning, SAP Group Reporting, are shown in the following graphic. It does not matter whether the system is accessed via the browser (Fiori Launchpad) or via local access (SAP GUI). The authorization roles shown in the graphic merely indicate the technical specifications preset by SAP. However, these can be used as a starting point and adapted accordingly after a copy has been created.
Evaluate the criticality of the security advisories for your company and also take into account the risks that may arise from the introduction of the SAP notes. This may include, for example, risks or expenses due to change and the corresponding tests in a productively used business process. Depending on this evaluation, you decide which safety instructions you want to insert directly and which hints should be implemented in the next maintenance cycle.
Another function of this transaction is to find transactions based on generic table access transactions. Here you can check whether there are parameter or variant transactions for a given table, or for a particular view, for which you can set up permissions, instead of allowing access to the table through generic table access tools. If a search result is generated, you can even search for roles that have permissions for the selected alternative applications. To do this, click the Roles button (Use in Single Roles). When using this tool, make sure that even if applications have the same startup properties, there may be different usage characteristics, such as SU22 and SU24 transactions. Both transactions have the same start properties, but are used for different purposes and display different data.
The customising parameters in the table PRGN_CUST control the password generator in the transactions SU01 and SU10. The values of the profile parameters override the customising parameter entries to prevent invalid passwords from being generated. If the value of a customising parameter is less than the value of the corresponding profile parameter, the default value of the customising parameter is drawn instead. The same is true if no value is maintained. You can exclude certain words or special characters as passwords by entering them in the USR40 table. In this table you can enter both specific passwords (e.g. your company's name) and patterns for passwords (e.g. 1234*). '*' stands for any number of additional characters (wild card) and '?' for any character. However, when maintaining the USR40 table, note that the number and type of entries affect performance.
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 permission concept is only as good as the code that performs the permission checks.
For example, this could be relevant for the tax audit and final reports or performance critical.
