Maintaining Authorization Objects (Transaction SU21)
Emergency user concept
In the SU53 you get the entry of the user that is stored there, and this may be old. So it is better to let the user himself display the authorization error via the menu. Maybe you create a small docu for all your users how to display the error and where to send it, so a "Cooking Recipe: How To...". In the SU53 error excerpt, the first thing that is displayed is the authorization that the user is missing. So this object has to be analyzed. In the further part of the error message, the permissions assigned to the user are displayed. This information can be used to classify the user with his role set, where he belongs etc. Finally, in our case 1, we now have the missing authorization and must now clarify whether the user should receive this authorization or not. In addition the specialist department must be contacted, which has to decide whether the user receives the permission! It can happen that the problem reported by the user is not an authorization problem at all. Then the last authorization error is displayed in the SU53 area, which is not the cause of the error at all. Therefore, it is always good to have a screen image of the actual error message sent to you as well. It is not uncommon for developers to issue an authorization error of the type "No authorization for..." from their programs, but they have not checked this with a standard authorization check at all, so that the error is not an actual authorization error.

In general, we recommend you to use strong encryption mechanisms and to switch most users to an SSO login. You should then delete the hash values of the user passwords as described above. For release-dependent information on SNC client encryption, see SAP Note 1643878.
Customise evaluation paths in SAP CRM for indirect role mapping
The difficulty in assigning permissions to the S_DATASET object is determining the correct values for the FILENAME and PROGRAMME fields. If you have not specified a path in the FILENAME field, only the files in the DIR_HOME directory will be allowed.

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

Some queries are also a bit complicated with the SUIM transaction. With SAP Query, you can quickly assemble queries that enable individual and more complex data evaluations. Do you want to know quickly which valid users currently have a modified access to a particular table, or what roles are users granted permission for a particular transaction? The SAP standard tool, the user information system, is an excellent solution for this type of data retrieval. However, at the latest during the next review, targeted queries with data combinations - and thus several SUIM query sequences - must be delivered within a short time. SAP queries can facilitate this task. An SAP Query is essentially a clear way to scan tables for specific data away from the SE16 transaction. There is the possibility to link multiple tables (join), which makes multiple SE16 queries just one SAP query. For example, if you want to know what roles users are entitled to perform the SCC4 transaction, you can use the SUIM transaction to query to determine which users can perform the transaction and view the roles that enable it in another query, but there is no result that shows both.

During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.

Only adding an authorization object via SU24 does not automatically result in a check within the transaction.

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.

This BAdI is also only available via a support package starting from SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.31.
