Optimise trace analysis
This approach makes authorization management considerably more efficient, since functional changes do not have a global impact on the entire authorization structure. This ensures the quality of authorizations in the long term. Authorizations in SAP systems enable users to access the applications relevant to their activities. To ensure that processes are mapped securely and correctly, SAP authorizations must be regularly checked and reworked.
In order to be able to use the following reports, you must not only have the appropriate authorizations, but also be aware that, depending on your SAP release or Notes, some reports are not yet or no longer available. The following reports were executed with release level 7.50.

Permissions profiles are transported in the standard (since release 4.6C) with the roles. If you do not want to do this, you have to stop the data export in the source system by the control entry PROFILE_TRANSPORT = NO. The profiles must then be created by mass generation before the user logs are matched in the target system. This can be done via transaction SUPC.
Roles can be assigned to users directly through user management in the SU01 transaction, role maintenance in the PFCG transaction, or mass change of users in the SU10 transaction. However, if the employee changes his or her position in the company, the old roles must be removed and new roles assigned according to the new activities. Because PFCG roles are created to represent job descriptions, you can use organisational management to assign roles to users based on the post, job, etc.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
The user master record contains all information about the corresponding user, including authorizations.
If the audit recognizes that permissions in the system are often too broad, i.e. users have more rights than they need, this can cause problems.
