Check and refresh the permission buffer
A complicated role construct
Insert SAP Notes 1656965 and 1793961 into your system. With these hints, the report RSUSR_LOCK_USERS is delivered or extended. This report supports automatic selection and blocking of inactive users. To do this, you have to select the criteria in the selection screen of the RSUSR_LOCK_USERS report, according to which you want to lock or invalidate users. You can determine the choice of users by using various criteria. It is recommended to take into account the period since the last login in the Days since last login field and the password status in the Days since password change field. You have the option to check the result of the selection and view the users found. To do this, select the Test of Selection action in the Select Action pane. You can also choose between the User Lock-outs (Local Lock-outs) and User Unlock (Local Lock-outs) actions in this area. You can set the end of a user's validity by clicking the corresponding options for "today" or "yesterday". Note that you can only set the validity for current users.
SAP Note 1854561 provides a new possible value for the auth/authorisation_trace parameter: F (Trace enabled with filter). Allows you to limit the permission trace to values that can be set by the filter. The filters are defined in the STUSOBTRACE transaction (see SAP Note 1847663).
Efficient SAP rollout through central, tool-supported management
Further changes can be found when using the proof of use. When you click on the button (proof of use), you will receive a new selection. You can check which permissions, SU24 suggestion values, or SU22 suggestion values the authorization object uses. The ABAP-Workbench selection, as in previous releases, provides you with the proof of use for implementing the authorization object in programmes, classes, and so on. You can use the SAP NEW Data button to mark whether this authorization object is relevant to an SAP New role of a particular release.
Both solutions offer you the added value of centralised reporting of existing users, newly created users, and role assignments. You can also extend the integrated workflows of both solutions to HANA permission applications. This enables you to use the risk analysis of the SAP Access Control solution also in relation to critical HANA permissions.
During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.
In the SU53 you get the entry of the user that is stored there, and this may be old.
In case of missing authorizations, SAP Basis also helps with an authorization trace in addition to the well-known SU53 for a more detailed analysis of authorization objects.
