Security within the development system
Grant permission for external services from SAP CRM
The permission check for the S_PATH object is performed as described only for files corresponding to a path with a permission group in the SPTH table. In our example, you should grant permission for the S_PATH object with the value FILE in the FS_BRGRU field to access files with the path /tmp/myfiles*. Note that the authorization object only distinguishes two types of access. These two values summarise the access types of the S_DATASET authorization object. The value Modify corresponds to the values Delete, Write, and Write with Filter; the value View corresponds to Read and Read with Filter.

To establish an efficient and consistent structure in the area of SAP authorization management, function-related role and authorization assignments are the be-all and end-all. In addition, the existing authorization concept must be constantly analyzed for changes and security-relevant errors through proactive monitoring. This prevents negative and highly security-critical effects on your entire system landscape. To make this task easier for you, Xiting provides you with a comprehensive analysis tool, the Xiting Role Profiler. In addition, you can perform a basic analysis in advance, which will also be the main focus of this blog. The goal is to show you SAP standard methods with which you can already independently optimize your authorization and role administration.
The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
