Advantages of authorization tools
As part of the SAP Access Control solution, the Business Role Management component serves the central role management. In addition to other useful functions, it also offers the automation of mass maintenance of role withdrawals. To do this, you must first place the organisational matrix in the customising (transaction SPRO), i.e. you enter the values or value ranges in the Organisation Level Mapping details area for the different organisation fields. At this point, however, you do not specify which reference roles should be derived for these organisational values.
The first line defines that access to all files is forbidden unless other settings have been made for them in the other lines. The asterisk (*) is in the first place here and in this case for all files and paths. If the asterisk is in a different position, it is interpreted as part of the file name, which is not allowed in Microsoft Windows, for example. In our example table, setting the switches FS_NOREAD = X and FS_NOWRITE = X for all paths prohibits reading and writing. This makes the table a white list. This is preferable to a black list for security reasons. SPTH, on the other hand, becomes a Black List if you remove the first line with PATH = * in our example or if you do not set any of the switches FS_NOREAD, FS_NOWRITE or FS_BRGRU. The second line with PATH = /tmp allows read and write access for all files starting with /tmp, similar to a permission value /tmp*, as an exception to the access ban defined in the first line for all files and paths. This setting is not limited to subdirectories, but includes, for example, all files whose name starts with /tmp-xy. The third line with PATH = /tmp/myfiles defines a permission group with FS_BRGRU = FILE, triggering the subsequent permission check on the S_PATH object. The SAVEFLAG = X switch defines that these files will be included in a backup procedure; however, this is not relevant for the permission award.
The AL08 transaction displays all logged-in users and their application servers. In the Server Name column, you can see which application server the user is logged on to, and which has the permission issue. Switch to this application server by calling the SM51 transaction and double-clicking the application server you are looking for. On the application server that is now active, run the permission trace as usual and review the evaluation.
Careful maintenance of suggestion values in the relevant authorization objects results in recurring benefits in creating and revising roles for Web applications. In addition, the SU25 transaction supports role post-processing in the context of SAPUpgrades.
Assigning a role for a limited period of time is done in seconds with "Shortcut for SAP systems" and allows you to quickly continue your go-live.
The direct consequences are overauthorized users, a lack of overview and dangerous security gaps.
