Check Profit Centre Permissions in FI
Use automatic synchronisation in central user management
Software license management is essential to get an accurate overview of all SAP transactions. We provide you with a transaction database in which the transactions are evaluated with named user license types. Your advantage: the actual usage of your SAP users is matched with the transaction database. "SAP direct access" analyzes the licenses for actual usage and classifies the critical cases. With SAP license optimization we maintain your individual license contracts and compare the results with LAW. We can point out discrepancies, including drill-down to user/client level, directly.

The best way for companies to combat historically grown uncontrolled growth in authorizations is to prevent it. An analysis of whether the current authorization concept is sufficient for the company helps here.

In many distributed organisations, the Profit Centre is used to map out the distributed units. However, this was only possible for FI with additional programming. In integrated data flows in SAP ERP, the sending application usually does not check the authorization objects of the receiving application. Financial Accounting (FI) in SAP does not check permissions for cost centres and profit centres. However, depending on the case of use, this may be necessary, e.g. if distributed entities are to operate as small enterprises within the enterprise and only collect and view data for this particular unit at a time. With the introduction of the new general ledger, SAP has technically merged the financial accounting and the profit centre account, so that the question of the inclusion of profit centre allowances in FIs becomes even more important.

At you will also find a lot of useful information on the subject of SAP authorizations.

In the SCC4 transaction, first check whether eCATT is allowed to run. Then start the SECATT transaction. As you get started, you can define and modify test scripts and test configurations. First, create a test script. Think of it as a blueprint or a flow rule for how to create new derived roles. The test script will contain your recording later. Give the script a talking name, such as Z_MASSENGERATION_DERIVATIVES. Then click the Create Object button. You will now go to the Attribute tab, where you specify the general frame data. Then click the Editor tab. Now it goes to the recording, in the eCATT language called patterns. Click the Pattern button and specify that you want to record the PFCG transaction by selecting the UIAncontrol and TCD (Record) settings. The system will propose to call the interface "PFCG_1"; You can simply confirm this. Confirmation of the dialogue will immediately start the recording; They therefore end up in the PFCG transaction. We want to record the creation of a single role derived from a reference role. Complete the appropriate steps in the PFCG transaction and try to avoid unnecessary steps - every step you take will make your recording bigger and less cluttered. Enter the name of the derived role - we can influence it later when playing with eCATT - and specify the role. Now assign the reference role. Note that the PFCG transaction is actually executed, so the role is actually created in the system! Now maintain the permissions and organisation levels. If possible, use organisational level values in the note, which you can find well in other numbers later on, i.e. about 9999 or 1234. After generating and saving the role, you will be returned to eCATT. There you will be asked if you want to accept the data and confirm with Yes.

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.

So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? That's what Scribble Papers is great for.

First and foremost, legal principles must be stated and specific reference must be made to authorizations that are critical to the law and that may not be assigned (or at most may be assigned to emergency users).
