Include customising tables in the IMG
We are often asked how permissions are properly assigned to schedule background jobs and manage those jobs. Just follow the guidelines below. Whenever you want programmes to run periodically at specific times without user interaction, or when their runtime should not interfere with normal dialogue operations, schedule them as batch jobs in the background. The scheduling and editing of batch jobs is regulated by permissions, which are often not clear about their use. We therefore explain to you what permissions are necessary for and which authorization objects are important.

Typically, users access a table's data through applications rather than directly. If so, you should take precautions and restrict access to sensitive data. End users typically do not access table-level data directly, but the data is displayed in business applications and their display is restricted in context by means of entitlement checks. However, there are cases where generic access to tables via the SE16, SE16N, SM30, SM31 or SM34 transaction is required for administrators, key users, verifiers, etc. For example, a verifier should have read access to all customising tables. However, you do not want to display security-related tables. Key users should be able to access certain reports regularly, but only read information relevant to their work. There are several ways to restrict access to tables by using table tools. This means that users can only access tables or table contents that they want to see. However, we would like to point out that the granting of permissions for these tools in the production environment is considered to be critical to security, since it is very easy to allow access to large amounts of sensitive data in the case of erroneous or excessive permissions. Therefore, only apply these permissions in a restricted way.
Basic administration
The downloading of the table must be monthly. You can also make downloading easier; Frank Buchholz presents programmes that you can use in his blog (see Optionally, the next step is to identify function groups for the function blocks. You can find them in the AREA field of the ENLFDIR table. However, we recommend granting permissions at the function block level, because function groups often contain a large number of function blocks and the accessibility is expanded unnecessarily.

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

Due to the changed suggestion values in the SU24 transaction, you must now perform step 2c (roles to verify) to update all roles affected by the changed proposal values. Role changes are only customised! You will get a list that shows all the roles you need to edit. If you have more than one client to maintain roles, you must also do this in the other client.

"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.

Before doing so, all index entries must be deleted; This can lead to a long run of the report.

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.

This prevents negative and highly security-critical effects on your entire system landscape.
