SAP Netweaver - BI Authorization Concept
Different events can be used to change to the new or changed role concept. Among other things, the introduction of new technologies can be used to establish, for example, the characteristics of the SME or technology architect. But also fluctuation or new hires are suitable for the conversion and establishment of the new roles. In principle, it is recommended that the new rollers be introduced and implemented successively parallel to the existing operating model.
At best, for the time in which an emergency user is in service, a separate log of the activities undertaken is written, which can then be evaluated. In the following chapter I would like to explain our best practice approach to implementing an emergency user concept. Our approach to using an emergency user concept We have had good experience with the use of the Xiting Authorizations Management Suite (XAMS) in this area. This suite consists of various modules for creating role concepts, managing permissions including a permission concept, and also enables the implementation of an emergency user concept. XAMS works here with a limited time assignment of reference users with extended privileges to enable the emergency user concept. A self-service application may be made with a justification and a period for allocating special rights. The application window is illustrated in an example in the following screenshot: Evaluation of the use of the Emergency User Concept Once this request has been initiated, a new mode will be opened for the user, in which he can work with the extended rights. In addition, depending on the configuration, a stored workflow can be initiated as an approval process, or pre-defined controllers will be notified by email to verify activities. Once the session has ended with the emergency user, the responsible persons will receive another email with the logged activity of the user with the extended permissions. One of these logs is shown in the next screenshot: These logs can also be viewed in the system. Here you will get an overview of all the sessions that have been run. In addition, it is possible to approve activities with special rights after an evaluation. This allows the controller to get an overview of the activities undertaken with the emergency user. If you are using this Emergency User Concept and following these steps, you can ensure: Each user on the production system retains his or her original necessary rights.
Implementation of the Transport Management System (TMS)
Standardisation of SAP operations as well as SAP systems can be seen as a preparation for automation as well as for cloud, outtasking and outsourcing service forms. Therefore, in the whole context of standardisation and automation, a sequence of tasks and systems needs to be followed. To do this, it is necessary to first make a detailed documentation of the respective object, which also describes the IST state in detail. A standardisation strategy can then be developed, defined and implemented. Only then can we consider automation, outtasking, cloud, and outsourcing.
The SAP NetWeaver Application Server Add-on for Code Vulnerability Analysis tool, also known as Code Vulnearability Analyzer (CVA), is a tool that performs a static analysis of user-defined ABAP source code to detect possible security risks. The tool is available in the NetWeaver ABAP stack and is based on versions from: 7.0 NetWeaver: in EHP2 SP 14 or higher / 7.0 NetWeaver: in EHP3 SP 09 or higher / 7.3 NetWeaver: in EHP1 SP 09 or higher / 7.4 NetWeaver: in SP05 or higher To use the CVA tool, the execution of system-wide security controls must be enabled with the RSLIN_SEC_LICENSE_SETUP report. Afterwards, the security checks are available in standard ABAP code checking tools such as ABAP Test Cockpit (ATC) or Code Inspector (SCI). The option of these checks is usually referred to as "security analysis in extended program check". Note that the use of the security check feature for custom code separation is licensed and incurs additional costs. The older program that has been around for years is Virtual Forge's "Code Profiler". It is one of the first products in this segment of SAP security and was used by SAP itself for many years. It is very comprehensive and is also able to track individual variables across the entire control flow. This leads to very precise statements and a reduction of false positives.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.
In addition, he must ensure that they are installed in the correct order.
The data is not only data tables, but also applications, system control tables and user data.
