Read the old state and match with the new data
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.
In the beginning, the FI and CO modules were separated from each other. Both modules have been combined by SAP as higher-level modules in the accounting area. The main reason for this is the tight process structure, which enables a smooth transition between the two modules. As a result, SAP FI and CO now only appear as the joint module SAP FICO.
SAP Authorization Trace - Simple Overview of Authorizations
Since SAP NetWeaver 7.02, such a feature is available, which means that you can access the data from the system trace to maintain PFCG roles. In the following we show you how you can apply the permission values from the permission trace to your role. To do this, you must first record applications against their permission checks and then add them to your role menu.
In contrast to storing passwords in the form of hash values, the user ID and password are transmitted unencrypted during the login of the client to the application server. The Dynamic Information and Action Gateway (DIAG) protocol is used, which may look somewhat cryptic but does not represent encryption. In addition, there is no cryptographic authentication between the client and the application server. This applies not only to communication between the user interface and the application server, but also to communication between different SAP systems via Remote Function Call (RFC). So, if you want to protect yourself against the access of passwords during the transfer, you have to set up an encryption of this communication yourself.
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.
This is based on the proposed authorisation values defined in the transaction SU24, whose maintenance status is standard in the authorisation maintenance.
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.
