SAP systems: Control user authorizations with a concept
Maintain proposed values using trace evaluations
What roles does my user have (SU01)? We start with a simple question: which roles are actually assigned to your SAP user? With the transaction SU01 you can view your (or other) SAP user. Among a lot of other information, you can find the assigned single and composite roles on the "Roles" tab.
If the changes to your SU24 data have not been detected with step 2a, or if you have imported transports from other system landscapes into your system, you have the option to reset the timestamp tables and start again. To do this, run the SU24_AUTO_REPAIR report in a system that is still at the state of the legacy release so that the modification flag is set correctly (see tip 38, "Use the SU22 and SU24 transactions correctly"). Subsequently, you create a transport and transport your SU24 data to the system, which is at the state of the new release. Now delete your timestamp tables. You can use the report SU25_INITIALIZE_TSTMP. Starting with SAP NetWeaver 7.31, you have the choice to set the reference time stamp from the SU22 data or delete the contents of the time stamp tables. You can then run Step 2a again.
After successful implementation of your permission check, the new authorization object for your application must be maintained in transaction SU24. If your solution is distributed in other system landscapes, the authorisation proposals in the transaction SU22 are maintained. In addition, with the permission proposal value maintenance, you can make sure that the new authorization object is not forgotten in a role system, because it is now loaded automatically into the PFCG role when the application is called up via the role menu. In the final step, the permission administrator can create the PFCG role or must remix the existing PFCG roles.
Confidential information from your SAP system can also be sent by email. Make sure that this data is only transmitted encrypted. Your SAP system contains a lot of data, which is often confidential. This can be business-critical or personal data or even passwords. It happens again and again that such data must also be sent by e-mail. Therefore, make sure that this information is always encrypted and signed if necessary. Encryption is intended to ensure the confidentiality of the data, i.e. that only the recipient of the e-mail should be able to read it. The digital signature serves the integrity of the data; the sender of an e-mail can be verified. We present the configuration steps required for encryption and provide examples of how to encrypt the sending of initial passwords. There are two ways to encrypt and sign emails in the SAP system: via SAPconnect, via a secure third-party email proxy.
If you get into the situation that authorizations are required that were not considered in the role concept, "Shortcut for SAP systems" allows you to assign the complete authorization for the respective authorization object.
To do this, click the Evaluate Trace button and select System Trace (ST01) > Local.
