Understanding SAP HANA Permissions Tests
ACCESS CONTROL | AUTHORIZATION MANAGEMENT FOR SAP®
A troublesome scenario you're probably familiar with: You will soon be going live with a new business process and must now derive your roles in 97 accounting circles. Here eCATT can make your life easier. It's time again: If you don't have anyone in your department who likes to press the Copy button for several hours in the PFCG transaction, replace the Derive shortcut, and then customise the Organisation Levels (Origen) in the new roles on the Permissions tab (repeatedly connected to memory), the job will hang on you. Because there is hardly anything more boring, at the latest after one hour the first errors creep in. Whenever you have to roll out new roles, for example for your new premium business, to all your divisions, plants, etc. , the creation of the derived roles is tedious - because SAP does not offer smart mass maintenance. The SAP standard offers various ways to record and play on a massive scale. These tools are generally available for all operations in the SAP system, not just for role maintenance. Therefore, they are also more complex to operate, in order to be able to cover as flexibly as possible all possible application scenarios. eCATT is also no exception, so many users are still afraid to use it. But we can tell you from experience: After the second or third time, the creation of the test scripts is so quick that you'll wonder why you haven't always done it this way.

For this very reason, there is a solution to automate the checking of authorizations with regard to critical authorizations and segregation of duties by means of tool support. This gives the authorization administrators more time to correct any errors that occur instead of having to search for them first.
System Security
In each filter, you can define for which clients and users events should be recorded. You can record the events depending on their audit class or categorisation, or you can select them directly via the detail setting. For the Client and User selection criteria, you can use generic values, i.e. you can select all clients or users that meet specific naming criteria (e.g., Client 10* or User SOS_*). For example, you can filter the loggers of multiple emergency users.

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

Each roll can be written to any number of transport orders. Information about existing records of the same role by other administrators does not take place.

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.

With the transaction SUIM you can search under roles, roles with different search criteria.

To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.

In doing so, security-related aspects, such as eligibility testing and allocation, must be taken into account.
