SAP systems: Control user authorizations with a concept
Roles and permissions in SAP SuccessFactors often grow organically and become confusing
For the ABAP stack, authorization profiles can be created either manually or by using the profile generator. However, the use of the profile generator is strongly recommended, since manual administration usually results in misconfigurations of authorizations. The profile generator guarantees that users only receive the authorizations assigned by their role. Concepts, processes and workflows must therefore be adapted to the use of the profile generator. There is no choice for the Java stack; here the J2EE authorization mechanism must be used. The User Management Engine offers options that go beyond the J2EE standard.

First, consider the transport of your proposed permissions from various development systems to a consolidation system. When you save permission proposal values in transport orders, you will notice that generic entries are used instead of detailed BOMs. These generic entries mark all applications, for example, with TR*..
To release jobs - own jobs or jobs of other users - a permission for the object S_BTCH_JOB with the expression JOBACTION = RELE is still required. In running operations, scheduled batch jobs may be cancelled because a step user is deleted or locked. With the help of the BTCAUX09 programme, you can check jobs as an administrator to see if they can be cancelled in the future. If you want to run these jobs under another step user, you can change them either with the transaction SM37 or with the report BTC_MASS_JOB_CHANGE.

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.

Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".

This BAdI is called whenever an encrypted e-mail is sent.

The freeware Scribble Papers is a "note box" in which all kinds of data can be stored. It takes in typed texts as well as graphics and entire documents. The data is then organised in folders and pages.

More than 10% of all users have the permission checked in this check, but at least 11 users.
