Authorization objects of the PFCG role
Use SU22 and SU24 transactions correctly
SAP authorizations are not exclusively an operational issue - they are also essential for risk management and compliance and represent one of the key audit topics for internal auditing and auditors. In most cases, the different rules according to which the risks of SAP authorizations are assessed are problematic.

Every action of the emergency user must be traceable, which requires the appropriate configuration of logging components such as the Security Audit Log. After the event, all log files are always evaluated and all details are recorded in documentation. It is also possible to specify in the concept that, in the event of an emergency, extended authorization may be granted to other selected users; this is up to the company to decide.
Application Permissions
You can find the report RSUSR010 in the User Information System under the entry Transactions > Executable Transactions (all selections). You can run the report for users, roles, profiles, and permissions as described above. We will describe the evaluation for the users below (see figure next page above); for the other selection options, the operation of the report is analogous. The RSUSR010 report identifies all transactions that a user is allowed to start. In the list of executable transactions, you can then double-click on the transaction (for example, PFCG) to view the list of authorization objects and values for that transaction.

Two other very important settings are the activation of the security audit log and the table logging. Both parameters must be activated in order to ensure traceability at the user level as well as at the table level. It should therefore be checked whether the detailed settings for the security audit log are set up in accordance with the company's specifications and, in any case, whether all users with comprehensive authorizations, such as SAP_ALL, are fully covered by the logging without exception.

With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.

A prerequisite for the indirect assignment of PFCG roles is a well-maintained organisational model.

We recommend that you read the instructions in Tips 4, "Set Password Parameters and Valid Signs for Passwords", and 5, "Define User Security Policy".
