A concept for SAP authorizations prevents system errors and DSGVO violations
WHY ACCESS CONTROL
However, there is also the situation that eligibility fields are collected at organisational levels. If these permission fields have already been filled with values in the PFCG roles, you must refill these organisation levels after categorising the permission fields as organisation levels. The PFCG_ORGFIELD_ROLES report helps you to do this, which matches all the roles with the organisation level fields, i.e. with the permission fields maintained in the organisation level fields.
As part of the SAP Access Control solution, the Business Role Management component serves the central role management. In addition to other useful functions, it also offers the automation of mass maintenance of role withdrawals. To do this, you must first place the organisational matrix in the customising (transaction SPRO), i.e. you enter the values or value ranges in the Organisation Level Mapping details area for the different organisation fields. At this point, however, you do not specify which reference roles should be derived for these organisational values.
Authorization concept - recertification process
In the PRGN_CUST table, set the customising switch REF_USER_CHECK to E. This prevents you from using other types of users than reference users. This switch only affects new mappings; You should manually clean up any existing mappings of other user types.
If these issues are not taken into account during a conversion, there will be an imbalance between the system and the components to be protected, since the change in the system constellation means that new components, such as those mentioned above, must also be taken into account. Otherwise, a company may suffer economic damage and the resulting damage to its image. Furthermore, neglect of legal requirements (BDSG, DSGVO, GOB, HGB, etc.)1 can lead to legal measures or steps.
If you get into the situation that authorizations are required that were not considered in the role concept, "Shortcut for SAP systems" allows you to assign the complete authorization for the respective authorization object.
By specifying the use of certain utilities, it is also possible, for example, to protect data consistency during access (ENQUEUE and DEQUEUE function modules) or to regularly check source code for security (code scanner).
It will make their lives easier in the future.
