Security Automation for HR Authorizations
Database Schema Privileges permissions: Schema Privileges are SQL object permissions that control access to and modification of a (database) schema, including the objects contained in that schema. A user who has an Object Privilege for a schema also has the same Object Privilege for all objects in that schema.
Run step 2a (automatic synchronisation with SU22 data). In this step, the data of the transaction SU22 of the new release will be transferred to the transaction SU24. If there is a change or difference in applications (changed check marks, suggestions, field values, or new or deleted authorization objects), the USOB_MOD or TCODE_MOD table of the MOD_TYPE is set to M. With SAP Note 1759777, a selection is offered for step 2a, with which this step can be simulated. Another option, Delete Flags for applications with modified data, is offered to apply the new changes only if Step 2a is executed selectively.
Maintain derived roles
One way of gaining direct access to downstream systems from the development system and possibly performing unauthorized activities there is to use incorrectly configured interfaces. In principle, interfaces within a transport landscape should be avoided with regard to the criticality of the systems "uphill", i.e. from an "unsafe" to a "safe" system (e.g. E system to Q or P system). However, this cannot always be implemented; for example, such interfaces are needed within the transportation system. Without going too deeply into the subject, however, critical interfaces can be characterized by the following properties. Critical interfaces refer to a critical system and a critical client, contain an interface user with critical authorizations in the target client, contain its deposited password.
You would like to revise your authorisation concept and tailor SAP roles only to the productive processes. We show you how to use the statistical usage data from the Workload Monitor for the SAP role definition. One of the biggest effort drivers in redesigning SAP role concepts is the definition of transactional expression of SAP roles. By using the statistical usage data from the workload monitor, you can avoid costly coordination with process managers in the sense of a Green Field Approach. In this way, you can tailor your SAP role concepts to the content of the usage behaviour. The only requirement is that the data be available for a representative period. This is two months in the SAP standard; You can also extend this time period. Below we describe how you can use the statistical usage data from the Workload Monitor for the SAP role definition.
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
Two other very important settings are the activation of the security audit log and the table logging.
This can lead to permission errors, such as for interface users who have the SAP_ALL profile assigned to them.
