BRF Business Rule Framework
Customers with such a case regularly contact us. Creating a Permission Concept from the ground up is often a time-consuming task. Furthermore, the know-how, which aspects should be dealt with in an authorisation concept and how the corresponding processes can look practical and at the same time audit-proof is often lacking. Our solution: tool-based generation of an individual, written authorisation concept In this situation, we have recommended to our customers the tool-based generation of a written authorisation concept directly from the SAP system. We use the XAMS Security Architect tool, with which we have had good experiences. This includes a template for a revision-proof and comprehensible, written authorisation concept. It includes established best practices for role and entitlement management. The template covers all relevant areas in a permission concept. The included text of the authorisation concept is completely customisable, so that the concept can be tailored to your situation without creating a permission concept from scratch. Dynamically update the written authorisation concept One of the biggest challenges after the development of an authorisation concept is to keep it up to date in the long term and to measure the sustainable implementation in the system. This is achieved by integrating live data such as configuration settings and defined rules directly from the connected system. For example, lists of existing roles or user groups and tables are read from the system each time the document is generated and updated in the permission concept. The following screenshot shows an example of what the appearance in the concept document might look like. Automatically check and monitor compliance with the concept To check compliance with the concept, the XAMS Security Architect includes extensive inspection tools. These cover the rules formulated in the concept and are suitable for measuring the extent to which the reality in the system meets the requirements formulated in the concept.

Typical tools in the SAP Basis environment include:
To use all the features of the SAP Patch Manager, you need the following permissions: S_TRANSPRT S_CTS_ADMIN Both are in the S_A.SYSTEM permission profile. If you log in to the Mandant 000 and your user base contains the appropriate permission profile, then you can use all the features of the SAP Patch Manager. When you log in to another client or without the appropriate user profile, you can only use the display functions. Map this permission profile to the system administrator only. Only the system administrator should have permission to perform the following actions: Support Packages Download Support Packages Play Support Packages Confirm Successfully Recorded Support Packages Reset Support Package Status Support Packages eliminate errors in the SAP system or make necessary adjustments due to legal changes, for example. The affected objects will be replaced in your system. Each Support Package is valid for one release level (but for all databases and operating systems) and requires a precisely defined number of predecessors. The upgrade from the following release or revision level contains all support packages from the previous booths that were available until the upgrade was delivered. SPAM ensures that support packages are only played in the order specified. To avoid problems, play all support packages as they are deployed. This allows you to keep your system up to date.
If this parameter is exceeded by a process, the query is cancelled before it could be executed. Both parameters are limited by the parameter abap/heap_area_total. Of course, there are several other storage parameters that would exceed the scope of this article. You can read their function in the SAP documentation.
