Wildgrowth of characters used in user IDs can have negative effects. Set a bar on it by limiting the character set in the first place. In the SAP system, depending on the release of the SAP_BASIS software component, you can create users whose names may contain "alternative" spaces. In Unicode systems, there are different spaces, which are represented by different hexadecimal values. The usual space has a hexadecimal value of 20, but there are alternative spaces (wide spaces), which can be recognised, for example, as double width or not at all as character spacing. You can use these alternate spaces when entering the user ID by pressing the Alt key. For example, the key combination (Alt) + 0160 can create a space with a non-breaking space. You can also create a user whose ID consists only of alternate spaces. Users with such IDs will write all change documents, but the IDs can still cause confusion if, for example, they are not recognisable as a user ID or if it appears that no user is displayed for the change document. In addition, certain special characters may cause problems in other applications (e.g. in transport management). Therefore, we will show you how to prevent such problems by limiting the character set.

In the IT sector, we have to face new challenges every day. New technologies require us to act accordingly in order to always keep the current system landscape up to date, to strengthen our position on the market and, of course, to gain a technological edge over other competitors. This is also reflected in the corresponding SAP system landscape. Read in the two-part blog series why an authorization concept should be considered as early as possible in a project phase - especially when converting to SAP S/4HANA.
Authorization object documentation
You can also use the SU53 transaction to centrally view failed permission checks. Open the transaction and go to Permissions > Other Users or F5 to the User Selection menu. Enter the user whose permissions have failed in the field with the same name. In the results list, you can see permissions that have failed for each user, as in our example, the missing permission to display the AGR_1251 table. You can see that more than one authorization object appears in this evaluation.

At www.sap-corner.de you will also find a lot of useful information on the subject of SAP authorizations.

Permissions are often not restricted because there is often no information about how the object should be shaped. The identification of the required functional components is often considered to be too burdensome and the risks from a lack of limitation are considered to be too low.

Secure your go-live additionally with "Shortcut for SAP systems". You can assign necessary SAP authorizations quickly and easily directly in the system.

The implementation of the time-space validation checks is carried out as an additional time-space filter.

The freeware Scribble Papers puts an end to the confusing paper chaos. The tool is also suitable for storing, structuring and quickly finding text documents and text snippets of all kinds in addition to notes.

You will notice that all the user management tables are assigned to the SC table permission group.
