Sustainably protect your data treasures with the right authorization management
Set password parameters and valid password characters
Tax reporting: The tax reporting system in SAP is based on the accounting area. The Profit Centre is not intended as a reporting unit here.
In order to sustainably guarantee the security of the SAP system internally and externally, regular auditing is indispensable. Existing rule violations must be detected and corrected. In addition, it is important to document the regular operation of SAP in order to have evidence of this for external and internal requirements. Automated processes can save a lot of time and money.
Check for permissions on the old user group when assigning a new user group to a user
All external services with their suggested values can be viewed or maintained in the transaction SU24. Access to external services or all CRM functions and data within CRM functions is realised via PFCG roles. To create these PFCG roles, you must first create a role menu. To do this, run the report CRMD_UI_ROLE_PREPARE. You can specify either the name of the CRM Business Role (User Role) or the name of the assigned PFCG role. It is also important that you specify the language in which the PFCG role will be maintained in the appropriate field.
Finally, we want to give you some recommendations for securing file access. The SPTH table allows you to protect the file system from ABAP programme accesses without granting permissions and to deliberately define exceptions. The problem is identifying the necessary exceptions. However, because the SPTH check is always performed together with the S_DATASET object check, you can use a long-running permission trace to find the paths that are used with filters for the S_DATASET authorization object. The procedure for this is described in detail in our Tip 39, "Maintain suggestion values by using trace evaluations". If you are using applications that access files in the DIR_HOME directory without a path, such as the ST11 transaction, you must specify access to the allowed file groups individually (e.g. dev_, gw_), because there is no wild card for DIR_HOME.
However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".
You use this BAPI when you implement a password reset self-service as described in Tip 52, "Reset Passwords by Self-Service." This enables encrypted e-mail delivery of initial passwords within a self-service framework.
