Check and refresh the permission buffer
PROGRAM START IN BATCH
You can schedule background jobs in the SM36 and SA38 transactions, but also in a variety of application transactions. It is important to know that special permissions are not necessary for the installation, modification, etc. of your own jobs. An exception is the release of background jobs; it is protected by a permission. Permissions are also required for the activities on other users' background jobs, and the following authorization objects are available in SAP backend processing: S_BTCH_JOB controls the access rights to other users' jobs. S_BTCH_NAM allows you to schedule programmes under a different user ID. S_BTCH_ADM grants parent permissions that are usually only required by administrators.
A troublesome scenario you're probably familiar with: You will soon be going live with a new business process and must now derive your roles in 97 accounting circles. Here eCATT can make your life easier. It's time again: If you don't have anyone in your department who likes to press the Copy button for several hours in the PFCG transaction, replace the Derive shortcut, and then customise the Organisation Levels (Origen) in the new roles on the Permissions tab (repeatedly connected to memory), the job will hang on you. Because there is hardly anything more boring, at the latest after one hour the first errors creep in. Whenever you have to roll out new roles, for example for your new premium business, to all your divisions, plants, etc. , the creation of the derived roles is tedious - because SAP does not offer smart mass maintenance. The SAP standard offers various ways to record and play on a massive scale. These tools are generally available for all operations in the SAP system, not just for role maintenance. Therefore, they are also more complex to operate, in order to be able to cover as flexibly as possible all possible application scenarios. eCATT is also no exception, so many users are still afraid to use it. But we can tell you from experience: After the second or third time, the creation of the test scripts is so quick that you'll wonder why you haven't always done it this way.
Include customising tables in the IMG
If you set the profile parameter dynamically, no users are logged out of the application server. You can prepare maintenance work in good time. The value 2 in the profile parameter does not prevent the login with the emergency user SAP*, if this is not set as user master record and the profile parameter login/no_automatic_user_sapstar is set to 0. You can also change the value of the parameter again at the operating system level. For details on the SAP user, see Tip 91, "Handling the default users and their initial passwords".
You want to create a permission concept for applications that use SAP HANA? Find out what you should consider in terms of technical basics and tools. As described in Tip 22, "Application Solutions for User Management in SAP HANA", there are different application scenarios where the permission assignment on the HANA database is required.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
With regard to the SAP authorization system, roles and the associated authorization objects, fields and values represent the foundation.
Therefore, in the next step, define the useful criteria you need in your role name.
