In order to get an overview of the organisations and their structure, we recommend that you call the Org-Copier (in read mode!) for the various organisational fields via the transactions EC01 to EC15. The customising in the SPRO transaction allows you to define the organisation fields and their respective assignment in the corporate structure area.
You can automate the translation of the texts by using the LSMW transaction. This transaction is intended for migration tasks, but is also very well suited to allow a particular transaction to be repeated and automated. You record the execution of a transaction and get the variables of the text blocks (technical role name, role description, etc.). You can add values from an import file based on Microsoft Excel to each flow loop. For example, the Excel file contains a table with the columns Technical role name, description German, description English. The LSMW script works through the import file line by line and thus role by role.
Unclear responsibilities, especially between business and IT
Do you also work in a complex system landscape where roles are decentralised? Then, inconsistencies can occur by transporting profiles from different systems to a target system. We'll show you how to prevent that. In the case of decentralised maintenance of eligibility roles, i.e. maintenance of roles in different systems or clients, there is a risk that the number sequences for the generation of eligibility profiles overlap. You can then generate profiles with the same name for different roles in different clients. As soon as you transport these eponymous permission profiles into a common target system, the profile will be overwritten by the newly imported profile and inconsistencies will arise. As a result, you may, for example, assign an ERP Permissions Role an SCM permission profile. This may result in a user assigned the ERP role not obtaining the required permissions or even too many permissions. You also have a problem if you want to use the permission profile to determine the source system and the client in which this profile was generated. This is not possible if the first and third characters of the SAP System ID (SID) and the number sequence for generating the permission profile match.
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).
If you get into the situation that authorizations are required that were not considered in the role concept, "Shortcut for SAP systems" allows you to assign the complete authorization for the respective authorization object.
Users cannot perform certain actions, or worse, people see sensitive data that they should not see.
In such cases, you must implement the Web application in a system that supports SSO logins, such as Central User Management (ZBV), SAP Identity Management (ID Management), or Active Directory (AD).
