Custom Permissions
Lack of know-how
For performance reasons, the SAP kernel checks whether a user is authorised in the permission buffer. However, only profiles and no roles are loaded into the permission buffer. Calling the SU56 transaction will cause you to parse the permission buffer, first displaying your own user's permission buffer. A pop-up window to change the user or authorization object will appear from the Other User/Permissions Object (F5) menu path. Here you can select the user you want to analyse in the corresponding field. The Permissions > Reset User Buffer path allows you to reload the permission buffer for the displayed user.

This list in the AGR_1252 table contains both the organisational fields that are shipped in the standard and the fields that you have collected for organisational fields. Unfortunately, the list does not indicate what kind of organisation field it is. But you can find out: Open the PFCG_ORGFIELD_DELETE programme via transaction SA38. The Organisation Level Value Helper (Orgebene) provides a list of all customer-specific organisation fields, because only these can be converted back to normal Permissions Object Fields. Note the implications if you want to actually run this programme.
Background processing
In particular, you can derive valuable information about customer transactions, since experience has shown that not all transactions are used. In this context, it is important to mention that you should only use the usage data logged and extracted from the SAP system for the optimisation of SAP role concepts. This information may only be used with the involvement of a co-determination body of your organisation, since this information can of course also be derived from individual users for performance control purposes. However, experience has shown that the use of these data with an early involvement of the institutions of codetermination and the definition of earmarks is uncritical.

If you now want to assign PFCG roles indirectly to users via the organisation management, you have to use evaluation methods. Evaluation paths define a chain of relationships between objects within a hierarchy. For example, they define how an organisational unit or a post can be assigned to another organisational unit. This relationship is set to the User ID. However, if the business partner has also been maintained in organisational management, there is no standard evaluation path for this case and the user assigned to the role is not found. However, since in SAP CRM the user IDs are not directly assigned to a post, but via the business partner, you have to make adjustments to the evaluation paths before you can assign the roles indirectly.

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

However, with role-based authorizations, SAP provides a very powerful control tool that remains clear with a little help and documentation.

The profile generator guarantees that users only receive the authorizations assigned by their role.
