Sustainably protect your data treasures with the right authorization management
Deleting table change logs
If a release change occurs, the adjustment of permissions is also required as a rework. You will have already learned that this task can be very complex. Many innovations make this work easier and make the whole process more transparent. In the event of a release change, not only new applications are often added, but also new or modified authorization objects, permission checks, and, as a result, modified suggestion values. With the SU25 transaction, you can update the suggestion values step by step and then update all the affected roles. So far, however, the transaction has been a kind of black box for you. You have performed each step without seeing how your suggestion values or roles have changed. We will now show you how to use the new features of the SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP to increase transparency in upgrading suggestion values and mixing PFCG roles.

Identify the personnel master record associated with the user ID that you are creating in the SU01 transaction. To do this, search within the personnel data for a personnel number that entered this user ID in the System User Name SAP System (0001) subtype of the Communication (0105) info type. Subsequently, fill in the fields of transaction SU01 with the data from the personnel master record.
Set password parameters and valid password characters
Don't simplify your entitlement concept before you know all the requirements, but first ask yourself what you need to achieve. So first analyse the processes (if possible also technically) and then create a concept. Many of the authorisation concepts we found in customers were not suitable to meet the requirements. Some of these were "grown" permission concepts (i.e., requests were repeatedly added) or purchased permission concepts. Many of these concepts had in common that they had been oversimplified, not simply. A nice example is permission concepts that summarise all organisational levels in value roles or organisational roles. There are few examples, such as the role manager of the industry solution SAP for Defence and Security, in which the result of a value role concept is still useful and appropriate for the user. The assumption that you "sometimes" separate all the authorization objects that contain an organisational level is simple, but not useful. We have not found the simplification that only a user without permissions can definitely not have illegal permissions. However, there was always the case that users had far too many permissions and the system was therefore not compliant.

Make sure that the client-independent tables for logging are always logged when the parameters are not set to OFF. In addition to the parameters listed here, the table itself must also have the table logging hook set; This is usually done with the help of the transaction SE13. The settings are made in development and then transported to the other systems. The SAP standard already provides some tables for logging; For an overview of these tables, see SAP Note 112388 (tables requiring logging). You can evaluate the logging settings of the tables using the RDDPRCHK report or the RDDPRCHK_AUDIT transaction in the SAP system. The selection is made in the start image of the report, e.g. via the table name or the selection of options for logging.

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

The SAP system only provides customising tables for table logging by default; so you don't have to worry about performance.

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 should always enable table logging for all clients.
