For even more extensive operations on jobs, there must be an authorization for object S_BTCH_ADM, in which the field BTCADMIN (identifier for the batch administrator) has the value 'Y'. This allows cross-client operations on any job. S_BTCH_ADM with value 'Y' thus also contains the objects S_BTCH_JOB action * and S_BTCH_NAM and S_BTCH_NA1 with user/program = *. Therefore, this is a very critical authorization because it allows an identity change. With the changes mentioned in note 1702113, the S_BTCH_ADM object can be used to restrict the authorization assignment more precisely.
The report shows system owners in real time which roles exist in SAP SuccessFactors and which authorizations these roles contain. The report also shows which roles are assigned to which users and whether there are duplicates, for example of groups or authorizations. The user can export this overview at any time.
Roles and permissions in SAP SuccessFactors often grow organically and become confusing
Once the programme implementation and documentation have been completed, a functional test will always follow. A corresponding eligibility test should not be forgotten. The permission test must include both a positive and a negative permission test.
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.
The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
There are various indications from this information.
Another important factor that should be considered in an authorization concept is to use a uniform naming convention because, on the one hand, many things cannot be changed after the initial naming and, on the other hand, this ensures searchability in the SAP system.
