Bypass Excel-based Permissions Traps
Another important authorization object for background processing is the object S_BTCH_NAM, which allows a user to run the steps of a job under another user (see SM36 -> Edit step). Here, a name other than the user's own can be entered in the user field of a step. The prerequisite is that the job scheduler has an authorization for the object S_BTCH_NAM, which contains the name of the step user, and that the step user exists in the same client as the job scheduler itself. From 4.6C: The step user must be of type Dialog, Service, System or Communication.

Suggested values are maintained in the transaction SU24 and delivered through the transaction SU22. Read more about the differences between these two transactions. Maintaining suggestion values via the SU24 transaction is useful if you want to reflect your own requirements or if the values provided by SAP do not meet customer requirements (see Tip 37, "Making sense in maintaining suggestion values"). These proposed values form the basis for the role maintenance credentials in the PFCG transaction. As you know, the suggested values provided by SAP are in the transaction SU22, which are delivered during reinstallation or upgrades as well as in support packages or SAP hints. What is the difference between transactions and how are they used correctly?
Calling RFC function modules
In our example, the end user logs on to an SCM system, but can also call ERP transactions from here. To have these ERP transactions available in SAP SCM, create a new PFCGE role in SAP SCM, e.g. ZS:XXXX:ERP_MENU. The ERP transactions that the user should have access to are added to the roles menu by selecting Apply Menus > From Other Role > Destination System. Now select the appropriate ERP system and then select the appropriate PFCG role from SAP ERP. You do not need a profile for this "menu role" because this role only includes the ERP menu. You can now sort the transactions in the Hierarchy pane by using drag and drop or by using the arrow keys as you need them in the NWBC.

You can implement the first request for additional verifications when performing document transactions by using document validation. In this example, we assume that the document is posted through an interface and that you want to check permissions for custom authorization objects and/or certain data constellations. There are different dates for document validation. The complete document can always be validated, if only the information from document header (time 1) or document position (time 2) is available to you, this can also be sufficient depending on the scenario. In such cases, you need to create validation at the appropriate times. Before you can write a User-Exit in a validation, you have to make some preparations.

For the assignment of existing roles, regular authorization workflows require a certain minimum of turnaround time, and not every approver is available at every go-live. With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you have options to assign urgently needed authorizations anyway and to additionally secure your go-live.
