Introduction & Best Practices
Reset Manually Maintained Organisation Levels to Roles
The SU10 transaction, as the user administrator, helps you maintain bulk user master records. You can now also select the user data by login data. You're probably familiar with this. You have blocked users, for example, so that a support package can be included. Some users, such as administrators, are not affected. For collective unlocking, you only want to select users with an administrator lock. The mass maintenance tool for users in the transaction SU10 is available for this purpose. This transaction allows you to select by user and then perform an action on all selected users. Until now, users could only be selected by address data and permission data.
Finally, we would like to draw your attention to SAP Note 1781328, which provides the report PFCG_ORGFIELD_ROLES_UPD. This report enables a mass update of existing role derivations. However, you do not use the concept of the organisational matrix, but you have to store the new organisational values directly when the report is called. Therefore, this function requires a high degree of understanding for the adjustments that are running in the background and is therefore only available as a pilot note. This means that this message must be explicitly requested via a customer message and only then will SAP support release it for you if necessary. It is not currently planned to make the information generally available via a support package.
Extend permission checks for documents in FI
Describing all configuration options would exceed the scope of this tip. If you need explanations about a customising switch that are not listed here, look for the relevant note about the SSM_CID table. All settings described here can be made via the transaction SM30. You must consider that all settings in the SSM_CUST, SSM_COL, and PRGN_CUST tables are client-independent; only the settings of the USR_CUST table depend on the client.
To calculate the recommendations, you can filter the SAP notes by their productive system, by the SAP solution, and by the applications and components, by the technical system name, and by the time of publication. The recommendation is issued in the following categories: Security-relevant SAP information, information on performance optimisation, HotNews, information on changes in legal regulations, and notes on corrections in the ABAP system.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
In addition, the authorization trace is useful for maintaining authorization default values (transactions SU22 and SU24).
In many companies, the correct use of P_ABAP is not known.
