Customise SAP_ALL Profile Contents
In many distributed organisations, the Profit Centre is used to map out the distributed units. However, this was only possible for FI with additional programming. In integrated data flows in SAP ERP, the sending application usually does not check the authorization objects of the receiving application. Financial Accounting (FI) in SAP does not check permissions for cost centres and profit centres. However, depending on the case of use, this may be necessary, e.g. if distributed entities are to operate as small enterprises within the enterprise and only collect and view data for this particular unit at a time. With the introduction of the new general ledger, SAP has technically merged the financial accounting and the profit centre account, so that the question of the inclusion of profit centre allowances in FIs becomes even more important.
After activation, advanced security checks are available in the usual development environment within the ABAP Test Cockpit. The ABAP Test Cockpit is a graphical framework for developers. Various test tools, such as the Code Inspector or the SAP Code Vulnerability Analyser, can be integrated into this. All available test tools can be initiated from this central location and present their results in a common view. No training is required to intuit the tool.

Upgrades also require that the eligibility roles be revised. In this context, you can use the SAP_NEW profile for support. During an upgrade, changes and enhancements to permissions checks are included in SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP. In order for users to continue to perform their previous actions in the SAP system as usual, you as the permission administrator must revise or add to the authorisation expressions within the framework of the established permission concept. Basically, you use the transaction SU25 for this purpose. For the transition period, you can use the SAP_NEW permission until the permission concept is up to date on the new release. Since the handling of SAP_NEW is not always transparent and the question arises, for example, when the profile should be assigned and when not, we explain the background here.
In particular, you can derive valuable information about customer transactions, since experience has shown that not all transactions are used. In this context, it is important to mention that you should only use the usage data logged and extracted from the SAP system for the optimisation of SAP role concepts. This information may only be used with the involvement of a co-determination body of your organisation, since this information can of course also be derived from individual users for performance control purposes. However, experience has shown that the use of these data with an early involvement of the institutions of codetermination and the definition of earmarks is uncritical.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
No external services can be added manually in transaction SU24.
When using encryption mechanisms, be sure to prevent access to the personal security environment (PSE) files in the server's file system and database.
