Understanding SAP HANA Permissions Tests
As with an SAP_NEW role, it is possible to generate an SAP_APP role. As with the SAP_APP profile, all permissions are included here, except the base permissions and the HCM permissions. The ability to create this role with the report REGENERATE_SAP_APP exists after inserting the SAP note 1703299. This report generates a role that is fully usable for all applications. However, we recommend using this role only for development and test systems.
First, the Web application developers must implement appropriate permission checks and make PFCG available for use in role maintenance in the transaction. This includes the maintenance of proposed values in the transaction SU22. The SAP Note 1413012 (new reusable startup authorisation check) provides all the necessary details.
Running the system trace for permissions gradually for each application server is tedious. We will show you how to record permission checks on multiple servers at the same time. If you want to use the System Trace for permissions in a system with multiple application servers, you should note that the Trace can only log and evaluate data per application server at any time. Therefore, if a permission error occurs, permission administrators must first check which application server the user is logged on to with the permission issue and then start the trace on that application server. We give you a guide to record permissions checks on certain application servers, but we also show you a way to use this feature centrally.
To maintain suggestion values, use the transaction SU24. Here you can view and customise suggestion values for all types of applications, such as SAP GUI transactions, RFC building blocks, or Web Dynpro applications. One way to maintain suggestion values is to use the system trace, which is linked to the transaction SU24 after inserting the support package named in SAP Note 1631929 and the correction instructions. This means that from the transaction SU24 you start the system trace, collect trace data and use this data directly during maintenance.
During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.
Thus, for an own authorization object with the authorization field ACTVT, the activity 01 Add or Replace, 02 Change and 03 Display can be selected and would then be available as a selection in the authorization field in the role maintenance.
The best thing that can happen is the error of the type: "I don't have authorization to do this and that!" (CASE1).
