Maintain transaction start permissions on call CALL TRANSACTION
Analyzing the quality of the authorization concept - Part 1
The high manual maintenance effort of derived roles during organisational changes bothers you? Use the variants presented in this tip for mass maintenance of role derivations. Especially in large companies, it often happens that a worldwide, integrated ERP system is used, for example, for accounting, distribution or purchasing. You will then have to limit access to the various departments, for example to the appropriate booking groups, sales organisations or purchasing organisations. In the permission environment, you can work with reference roles and role derivations in such cases. This reduces your administrative overhead for maintaining functional permissions and reduces the maintenance effort for role derivations to adapt the so-called organisational fields. However, maintaining the organisational fields can mean enormous manual work for you, as the number of role derivations can become very large. For example, if your company has 100 sales organisations and 20 sales roles, you already have 2,000 role outlets. Here we present possible approaches to reduce this manual effort.

System trace - Transaction: ST01 or STAUTHTRACE - There is also a system trace for an evaluation. Unlike the authorization trace, a system trace is mainly designed for short periods of time. My preferred variant to call the system trace is via the transaction STAUTHTRACE. Here you can filter the evaluation directly and get a better evaluation representation. Over the individual Buttons one can switch directly the Trace on or off and display the result of the Trace.
Check for permissions on the old user group when assigning a new user group to a user
Look closely at the security advisory so that you can identify the affected programmes or functions and schedule appropriate application tests. Use a test implementation in the SNOTE transaction to identify additional SAP hints that are required for a security advisory and may also contain functional changes.

Configuration validation uses the CCDB's configuration data to reconcile settings. To do this, you define your customer-specific security settings technically in a target system. This contains the specifications for the configuration of SAP systems. You can also define a target system based on the settings of an existing system and adapt it to your requirements. Then you compare the settings of your SAP systems with this target system on a daily basis and get an overview of the deviations. Since there may of course be different security requirements for the systems in your landscape (e.g. development and production systems), you can define different target systems with the appropriate settings. You then start the comparison with a target system for the relevant systems. Alternatively, you can compare to an actual system; For example, this is a useful function in the context of a roll-out.

Assigning a role for a limited period of time is done in seconds with "Shortcut for SAP systems" and allows you to quickly continue your go-live.

On the application server that is now active, run the permission trace as usual and review the evaluation.

Behind these is a checking mechanism based on so-called authorization objects, by which the objects or transactions are protected.
