Mitigating GRC risks for SAP systems
Custom programmes should be protected with permissions, just like standard applications. What rules should you follow? Introductory projects usually produce a large number of customised programmes without being subjected to a permission check when they are executed. For your programmes, you should create custom permissions checks by default and manage them accordingly.
Here, too, it is possible to create security and an overview with the help of tools for HR authorizations. The tool creates a clear overview of which data certain users are allowed to access in the SAP system. Based on this, it is possible to develop automatic checks that run in the background and regularly monitor whether changes to authorizations have created critical gaps in HR.

For an up-to-date description of the eligibility tests in the EWA, see SAP Note 863362. Updates to these checks are provided by keeping the ST-SER software component, which contains the definition of checks to be performed, up to date and enabling the automatic content update in the SAP Solution Manager.
The maintenance status of permissions in PFCG roles plays an important role in using the Role Menu. The Maintenance Status allows you to determine how the authorization object entered the role and how it was maintained there. The blending function of role maintenance credentials in the PFCG transaction is a powerful tool that helps you with role processing. If the Roll menu has been changed, the Mix feature will automatically add the permissions suggestions that are included in a single role. This is based on the proposed authorisation values defined in the transaction SU24, whose maintenance status is standard in the authorisation maintenance. These permission values are also called default permissions. Permissions with different maintenance status, i.e. Care for, Modified or Manual, are not changed during mixing - the exception is removing transactions.
However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".
Mean Access: The tax authority may require the taxable person to perform the read-only processing of the data in accordance with its specifications.
When defining customised permission fields, you assign a name in the Field Name field that is in your Customer Name Room and assign the corresponding data element and, if desired, a table name for a value help.
