Evaluation of the authorization check SU53
We would like to point out that after defining and implementing a authorization object, you should no longer change the permission field list, as this will cause inconsistencies. Once you have determined that you want to add more fields to your check, assign your authorization object to the AAAA object class and create a new authorization object.
Your system has inactive users? This is not only a security risk, as they often use an initial password, but also creates unnecessary licence costs. There will always be inactive users in your SAP system. There may be several reasons for this. For example, they may be management level users that are virtually unused because they are not using the ERP system. It could also be that employees no longer use their SAP user due to a change of position or that outsiders do not work on the SAP system for a while. In any case, you should ensure that these inactive users are either blocked or invalidated. Up to now, you had to select all inactive users with the help of the RSUSR200 report and then manually transfer them into the SU10 transaction to perform the blocking. You can now do this automatically.

Put the values of the permission trace into the role menu: The applications (transactions, web-dynpro applications, RFCBausteine or web services) are detected through their startup permissions checks (S_TCODE, S_START, S_RFC, S_SERVICE) and can be added to the role menu of your role. In your role, go to the Menu tab and import these applications by clicking Apply Menus and selecting Import from Trace. A new window will open. Here you can evaluate the trace and view all recognised applications in the right window. To do this, click the Evaluate Trace button and select System Trace (ST01) > Local. In a new System Trace window, you can specify the evaluation criteria for the trace, such as the user using the Trace field only for users or the time period over which to record. Then click Evaluate. Then, in the right part of the window, you will see all the applications logged. Select the applications you want to apply to the Roles menu and click Apply. You can now decide how the applications appear in the Role menu. The application can be added to the role either as a permission proposal or as a menu item through the Add drop-down box. They can be displayed as a list or as a panel menu (insert as list) or according to the SAP menu tree in which the application is stored in the SAP menu (insert as SAP menu).
Very often the question then arises, does anything have to be prepared for the audit? As a rule, all of the company's own notes from previous years should be retrieved and combed through for information that was noted at the time during the discussions with the IT auditor. The IT auditor's findings and comments that show potential for improvement in IT-relevant processes or system settings are particularly essential. Furthermore, any reports by the auditor from the previous year should also be taken into account, in which deficiencies identified at that time were pointed out.
Assigning a role for a limited period of time is done in seconds with "Shortcut for SAP systems" and allows you to quickly continue your go-live.
If you assign a user group to the newly created user, all the checks will be repeated for that user group.
