Schedule PFUD transaction on a regular basis
The logging takes place in both the central system and the subsidiary systems. If the change documents are to be read for the attached subsidiary systems, the subsidiary systems must also be at the release and support package status specified in SAP Note 1902038. In addition, RFC users in their daughter systems need permission to read the change documents using the S_USER_SYS authorization object with the new activity 08 (Read the change document).
The specific SAP_NEW authorization object imprints are provided via the SAP_BASIS component. Therefore, an SAP_NEW profile is always bound to a specific base release. Proceed as follows: With the transaction SU02, you remove all old, individual profiles from the SAP_NEW composite profile, including the profile that belongs to the start release of your upgrade. Now assign the reduced SAP_NEW permission profile to all users in the upgrade preparation system, ensuring that all users can work as usual. This step can be omitted if you are following another method to identify missing permissions. Now check all permissions in all remaining profiles within the SAP_NEW summary profile that have a higher release level than the SAP_BASIS upgrade start release. Map all required permissions to all productive roles in your permission concept. You can do this for each intermediate release individually. The next step is to adjust the permissions in your productively used roles in the PFCG transaction, and then remove the corresponding permissions from the SAP_NEW profile using the SU02 transaction. Repeat steps 3 through 4 until the SAP_NEW permission profile is empty. Work in a development system during the role adjustment phase and transport the adjustments made to your eligibility roles to your quality assurance system. After successful acceptance test, you transport them to the production system. Now you can remove the SAP_NEW profile from all users. You can then proceed with role follow-up as part of the release change in the SU25 transaction (see also Tip 43, "Customise Permissions After an Upgrade").
Implementing Permissions Concept Requirements
This very critical authorization can be used to electronically erase, or manipulate program runs including authorization queries in a variety of ways. This authorization should be assigned only very restrictively, for example developers need the authorization however for their daily work.
We recommend that you implement all safety instructions of priority very high (1) and high (2) directly. On the other hand, you can implement medium (3) and low (4) security advisories via support packages, which you should also include regularly. If you are unable to insert a support package at the moment, SAP will also provide you with the priority 3 and 4 security advisories. For the evaluation of the security advisories, you should define a monthly security patch process.
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.
You can define key figures and result objects (groups of characteristics) for the planning and information system in the result and market segment calculation (CO-PA).
