SAP Authorization Concept
Whenever you find a red traffic light on the Roles tab in the user master in SU01 - or a yellow traffic light on the Users tab in PFCG, you can usually solve the problem with a simple user synchronization. The fact that such a user adjustment is necessary can have several reasons. Among others: after a role transport to / when assigning users to roles via PFCG after restricting the validity of roles to users when roles are assigned indirectly via organizational management. Users usually notice the problem of a user comparison that has not been carried out quite quickly: Authorizations are missing, although at first glance they are available in the assigned authorization roles. This is because a user is assigned the correct authorization role - but the profile associated with the role is not up to date.
In the initial screen, you can first use the global settings to specify whether changes should be allowed in general. Furthermore, you can define specifically for the software components and namespaces of the Repository objects whether they can be changed at all, or whether changeability should only be possible to a limited extent.
The consistent implementation of the role concept enables a manageable complexity of the tasks per employee. At the same time, through the respective SMEs, the concept creates expertise in specific topics and enables communication on an equal footing with upstream or downstream IT departments as well as with external service providers. The establishment of technology architects also ensures that the overall picture is not left out of sight in the context of the SAP product portfolio. Deficits can also be addressed on issues such as policies and security. Overall, the role concept provides guidance for the employees and their career planning as well as guidance regarding the range of tasks and contacts for IT departments and business areas.
In order to have some advantage in terms of new SAP technologies, suitable PoCs (Proof of Concepts), research and pilot projects must be initiated to build know-how and evaluate boundary conditions or feasibility. Furthermore, this serves the evaluation of new business models by the underlying technology in collaboration with the respective business unit.
