Determine Permissions Error by Debugging
Best Practices Benefit from PFCG Roles Naming Conventions
Due to the complexity of an SAP® authorization concept, it is necessary that all essential aspects are set down in a written documented authorization concept. This should describe the essential processes, but also how to handle the assignment of authorizations via roles. In particular, the nomenclature of specially created roles must be clearly defined. It should therefore be checked whether all changes since the last audit have been documented in the written authorization concept. After all, this document serves the auditor as a template for the so-called target/actual comparison. This means that the auditor compares the document with the actual status in the SAP® system for the main topics relevant to the audit. Any discrepancy can lead to a finding that must be avoided.
The first two problems can be solved by inserting the correction from SAP Note 1614407. The profile data will not be added to the bill of materials at the time of the roll recording but only when the transport order is released. This ensures consistency between the role's permission data and its profile data. The shared transport job also contains the complete history of changes to the profiles and permissions, so that obsolete data can also be deleted in the target systems.
PROGRAM START IN BATCH
Here, too, it is possible to create security and an overview with the help of tools for HR authorizations. The tool creates a clear overview of which data certain users are allowed to access in the SAP system. Based on this, it is possible to develop automatic checks that run in the background and regularly monitor whether changes to authorizations have created critical gaps in HR.
The function block was obviously not intended for this use, but our procedure does not affect the programme process and we are not aware of any limitations resulting from this use. You can also apply this procedure to other BTEs that pass data in a similar form. However, you should always exercise caution and check whether the application has already created sum records or whether there are other dependencies. Finally, you will need to create a product you have developed (you can define the name yourself) in the FIBF transaction and assign it to Business Transaction Event 1650 along with the customer's own function block, as shown in the following figure. A custom product may include several enhancements. It forms a logical bracket around the extensions and thus provides a better overview. In addition, it allows for a targeted activation or deactivation of the implementations.
