Permissions with Maintenance Status Used
User Interface Client Permissions
Transaction SU53 can be used to immediately display the missing authorizations for a single SAP user. This is advantageous when individual background processing or activities are not executed correctly and the cause is suspected to be missing authorizations. In this way, the cause of the error can be narrowed down more quickly.
Depending on the transaction invoked, the application can be more granular checked by this additional permission check. Therefore, transactions that are called with additional parameters might require more than one authorization object and must be protected programmatically. The following listing shows an example of a permission check that ensures that the logged-in user has the permission to start the SU24 transaction.
Define a user group as mandatory field in the user root
Authorizations are the main controlling instrument for mapping risk management and compliance. They are used to control all processes in the systems. For the most part, separation of functions is implemented exclusively with authorizations. Therefore, not only the one-time setup of authorizations is relevant, but also the continuous monitoring and control of the authorization assignment. Various tools are available on the market for this purpose. A re-certification process that involves the departments and optimizes the revalidation of authorizations is helpful.
Furthermore, the statistical data of other users (user activities, such as executed reports and transactions) should be classified as sensitive, since it may be possible to draw conclusions about work behavior using this data. This data can be displayed using transaction ST03N, for example. Access authorizations to the two types of data mentioned above should be assigned only very restrictively.
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.
Only a selection of the characteristics defined for the result area - and for the calculation of the result account also the value fields - is possible.
The data that is regulated by the structural authorizations must be hierarchically structured in one of the personnel development components.
