Redesign of SAP® Authorizations
Security within the development system
The valid programmes or transactions are stored in the SAP TPCPROGS delivery table, but do not follow a uniform naming convention. Part of the transaction code (e.g. AW01N), part of the report name (e.g. RFEPOS00), or the logical database (e.g. SAPDBADA) is relevant here. Logical databases (e.g. SAPDBADA, SAPDBBRF) are basic data selection programmes and are particularly used in financial accounting. The permission checks, including the time period delimitation, are implemented in the logical database and work for all reports based on a logical database (e.g. the RAGITT00 grid is based on SAPDBADA and the RFBILA00 balance sheet report is based on SAPDBSDF). When you copy the values from the TPCPROGS table, the TPC4 transaction is quickly configured.
The security check also shows when no redesign is necessary because the authorizations found are compatible with the current concept. The checks allow incorrect authorizations to be identified and rectified without a redesign.
Perform Risk Analysis with the Critical Permissions Report
The difficulty in assigning permissions to the S_DATASET object is determining the correct values for the FILENAME and PROGRAMME fields. If you have not specified a path in the FILENAME field, only the files in the DIR_HOME directory will be allowed.
A far more elaborate way is the identification via the business roll customising. Here you first identify the technical name of the area start page or the logical link in the customising of your business role in the CRMC_UI_PROFILE transaction. If you have an area start page, check the technical name of the corresponding logical link. The next step is to switch to the navigation bar customising in the transaction CRMC_UI_NBLINKS and identify to the technical name of your logical link the corresponding target ID in the View Define logical link. If you use the target ID as the search parameter in the CRMC_UI_COMP_IP table, you will get the information about component name, component window, and inbound plug as the search result.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
Existing log files are managed using the SM18 transaction.
