Data ownership concept
You can also evaluate the application log through the SLG1 (ATAX object) transaction; the output of the report CA_TAXLOG seems more useful here. Finally, we have some important information for you: There are individual programmes that can be used read-only, but also offer options for updates to the database. In these cases, additional logic was implemented (e.g. in SAP Note 925217 to the RFUMSV00 programme for the sales tax pre-reporting). Action log data can be accessed via the transaction SLG2 (Object: ATAX) (see also SAP Note 530733). If you want to customise for the annual permissions directly in the production system (so-called "current setting"), the SAP Note 782707 describes how to do this. Basic information about Current Settings is provided in SAP Notes 135028 and 356483. SAP Note 788313 describes in detail the functional components of the time-space test and the additional logging and also serves as a "cookbook" to use in customer-specific developments. How you can prevent access to the SAP menu and only show the user menu to the user, we described in Tip 47, "Customising User and Permissions Management".
The direct consequences are overauthorized users, a lack of overview and dangerous security gaps. In order to get the system back on track in the long term, a redesign is usually the most efficient solution. Depending on the requirements and project framework, we also rely on proven software solutions from our partners.
Prevent excessive permissions on HR reporting
The background to the mass presence of authorization objects in a PFCG role after a role menu has been created is usually the mass of generic OP links that are not actually necessary for the CRMBusiness role. The existence of proposed values from the transaction SU24 loads the proposed authorisation values associated with the respective external services into the PFCG role, which results in too many unnecessary authorization objects being placed there. By excluding the GENERIC_OP_LINKS folder, you only need to take care of the external services and their authorization objects configured in the CRM business role in your PFCG role. For a user to have all the necessary permissions, you now assign the basic role with the permissions to the generic operating links and the actual role that describes the user's desktop.
You can customise the AIS cockpit to your needs. To do this, use the customising that you will also find in the transaction SAIS under the button Administration of the audit environment. Select Configure Audit Cockpit and you can define a default audit structure, the maximum line length for log entries, and the number of log entries per audit step.
However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".
If you use change request management in SAP Solution Manager, you can use the system recommendations in an integrated way.
In the SAP standard, the name of a generated profile is composed as follows, for example, if the System ID is ADG: T-AG#####.
