SAP S/4HANA® Launch Pack for Authorizations
If you want to export the movement data of the productive system to a development system, you should first export user master records and the permission proposal values and archive the complete change documents. After importing, you can then delete the imported change documents, in analogy to the client copy, and then reload and index the original change documents of the development system. The activities described here require administrative permissions for the change documents (S_SCD0 and S_ARCHIVE) and, if applicable, for the table logs (S_TABU_DIS or S_TABU_NAM and S_ARCHIVE). These permissions should be considered critical, and you should assign them to a small circle.
Now maintain the permissions and organisation levels. If possible, use organisational level values in the note, which you can find well in other numbers later on, i.e. about 9999 or 1234. After generating and saving the role, you will be returned to eCATT. There you will be asked if you want to accept the data and confirm with Yes. You have now successfully recorded the blueprint. Now the slightly trickier part follows: The identification of the values to be changed at mass execution. In the editor of your test configuration, the record you created is located at the bottom of the text box. We can now execute the test script en masse with any input. We need a test configuration for this. In the example Z_ROLLOUT_STAMMDATEN, enter a corresponding name and click the Create Object button. On the Attribute tab, specify a general description and component. On the Configuration tab, select the test script you created earlier in the corresponding field. Then click the Variants tab. The variants are the input in our script. Since we do not know the format in which eCATT needs the input values, it is helpful to download it first. To do this, select External Variants/Path and click Download Variants. A text file is now created under the appropriate path, containing the desired format with the input parameters. Open the data with Microsoft Excel and set your target value list. To do so, delete the line *ECATTDEFAULT. In the VARIANT column, you can simply use a sequential numbering. Save the file in text format, not in any Excel format.
Detect critical base permissions that should not be in application roles
Authorizations in a company are usually not assigned to individuals, but to roles. A role describes jobs or positions within the organization. One or more persons can hold a role and thus have the access authorizations assigned to the role. The authorization profile (the number of authorizations) of a role contains all authorization objects that are required to execute the transactions. By means of a profile generator (transaction PFCG) the creation of the authorization profile can be automated in SAP.
In the PRGN_CUST table, set the customising switch REF_USER_CHECK to E. This prevents you from using other types of users than reference users. This switch only affects new mappings; You should manually clean up any existing mappings of other user types.
Secure your go-live additionally with "Shortcut for SAP systems". You can assign necessary SAP authorizations quickly and easily directly in the system.

For example, the combination of displaying all posting circuits and changing a single posting circle within a role cannot be implemented.
