Permissions and User Root Sets Evaluations
In our eCATT test configuration, the prepared file can now be used to play the recording. Note that playback stops when we encounter an error in the PFCG transaction, such as when we try to create a role with the input values that already exist. To play, specify the file under External Variants in Test Configuration and click Run (F8). You will be given the opportunity to set some playback properties. Now, with Run, it starts. You will see some messages from the PFCG version at the bottom of the status bar and will end up with a summary of success (or failure if there were errors). We admit that eCATT is more complex to use than the transaction SU10. However, if you have used eCATT a few times, it is quite quick. Please always note that the basic mechanism is to play a recording and therefore other organisational levels (e.g. a third organisational level, which is in the dialogue before the work and the sales point) also require a different recording and editing.

Partners delivering their developments also maintain the proposed values for their applications in the transaction SU22. If customers are developing systems that supply other system landscapes than your system landscape and require different SU24 suggestion values per system, the proposed values in transaction SU22 will be maintained. The profile generator uses only the values of the transaction SU24 in your customer environment as a data base. To maintain the suggestion values, you can use both the System Trace data for permissions from the ST01 or STAUTHTRACE transaction and the data from the permission trace in the SU24 transaction (see Tip 39, "Maintain suggestion values using trace evaluations").
System Settings
Excel-based tools typically do not know the release-specific suggestion values (they often work without the in-system suggestion value mechanism, because they do not use the PFCG transaction). This also means that it is not possible to upgrade rolls with standard SAP tools, such as the SU25 transaction. This also increases the dependency on the external tool, and the authorisation system is further removed from the SAP standard and the best practices recommended by SAP in role management.

It should be noted, however, that the system writes all authorization errors of the user into the memory area of SU53. I.e. if there is a so-called double hit, i.e. several authorization errors occur, only the last error is always in this area. I prefer to have the user run the transaction until the error message "No authorization...", then use the menu to display the error, and send me a screen shot of the first page of output. This way I avoid that the user creates another authorization error when calling transaction SU53, which covers the original one. As a user administrator or role administrator, you can also call SU53 yourself and display the error entry of another user via the menu. However, this does not always work.

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".

To do this, select the Test of Selection action in the Select Action pane.

New AP implementation, S/4HANA conversion or redesign of an SAP authorization concept - the complexity has increased enormously and requires a clear structure of processes, responsibilities and the associated technical implementation.
