Optimization of SAP licenses by analyzing the activities of your SAP users
Maintain authorization objects more easily
Once you have archived the change documents from the User and Permission Management, you can use a logical index for change document properties to significantly improve performance. First, however, you must ensure that SAP Notes 1648187 and 1704771 are installed in your systems. These notes provide the SUIM_CTRL_CHG_IDX report, which adds key characteristics for change document characteristics of the PFCG and IDENTITY object classes to the SUIM_CHG_IDX table when you have marked the Indices key change documents field. All change documents are indexed (this can lead to a very long run time when the report is first run). Later, the newly added change documents are indexed regularly (e.g. weekly or monthly). To do this, specify the target date in the selection of the report and schedule it as a regular job. Note that you can only create the index until the previous day - otherwise inconsistencies may occur.
As a second way to automate the mass maintenance of role pipelines, we mentioned the use of business role management. Various solutions are offered on the market that offer this functionality in the same or similar form. Some of these solutions do not use the derivation concept; This has the advantage that the organisational matrix is not limited to organisational fields. However, the major deviation from the standard functionalities of the PFCG role is detrimental to this variant.

To help you better find your own tables in the future, check your development policy to see if the storage is adequately described. If the development guidelines are not complete, you should supplement them. For example content for a development policy, see the DSAG Web site under Guides. Now go to https://www.dsag.de/go/leitfäden and search for "Best Practice Guide Development".
When you select the row with the parameter transaction you created and click on the Suggest values button, the S_TABU_NAM authorization object is automatically created with the correct suggestion values, i.e. the table name in the transaction SU24. Check these suggestion values by clicking Yes in the S_TABU_NAM column. You will now end up in a view from the transaction SU24 and can check in the tables authorization objects and Permission Proposition Values (for all authorization objects) which changes to the object S_TABU_NAM have been made automatically. For more information and implementation guidance, use SAP Note 1500054. The SAP Note also provides the SUSR_TABLES_WITH_AUTH analysis report, which specifies table permissions for users or individual roles. This report checks at user or single-role level which tables have permissions based on the S_TABU_DIS or S_TABU_NAM authorization objects. The report does not check whether the user has the transaction startup permissions that are also necessary, such as S_TCODE. For example, if you check what table permissions a particular user has based on the S_TABU_DIS authorization object, you will receive information about the table names, the associated table permission group, and the eligible activities. Granting permissions to access tables directly is flexible and useful, and is not recommended unless the mechanism is hammered out by giving the user general table access through generic maintenance tools.

The ABAP authorization concept protects transactions, programs and services in SAP systems against unauthorized access.
If audits have also been announced, the pressure is particularly high.
