Use automatic synchronisation in central user management
Installing and executing ABAP source code via RFC
With regard to the SAP authorization system, roles and the associated authorization objects, fields and values represent the foundation. Therefore, these check criteria are in the special focus of the authorization analysis of security-relevant characteristics of each authorization administrator. The report RSUSRAUTH is used to display role or authorization data in the respective client. The report analyzes all role data that are anchored in the table AGR_1251. This allows you to quickly find and clean up incorrect and security-critical authorizations not only by selecting the maintenance status of the authorizations, but above all by storing certain authorization objects and controlling them. This ad hoc analysis thus offers you a time-saving method of checking many roles at once according to your own critical characteristics. You can then make full use of this program by importing SAP Note 2069683.
The implementation of the time-space validation checks is carried out as an additional time-space filter. For selection criteria outside the valid time period, the message "Not authorised to display data from this time period" appears. However, if the selection criteria are partially within the valid time period, the documents that are outside the time period will be filtered out by the system without the user receiving a notice. In the example shown in the above figure, users of the BP-NRW Verifier Group would be left without comment when calling the vendor list for the period 01.01.2010 to 31.12.2014. This system behaviour can be somewhat irritating.
SAP systems: Control user authorizations with a concept
If you want to use reference users and use the User menu, you should also ensure that users also see the role menus associated with reference users. To do this, enter the corrections in SAP Note 1947910. They include two switches for customising in the SSM_CUST table.
Permissions profiles are transported in the standard (since release 4.6C) with the roles. If you do not want to do this, you have to stop the data export in the source system by the control entry PROFILE_TRANSPORT = NO. The profiles must then be created by mass generation before the user logs are matched in the target system. This can be done via transaction SUPC.
Secure your go-live additionally with "Shortcut for SAP systems". You can assign necessary SAP authorizations quickly and easily directly in the system.
If these issues are not taken into account during a conversion, there will be an imbalance between the system and the components to be protected, since the change in the system constellation means that new components, such as those mentioned above, must also be taken into account.
In addition, you should change the settings of the stat/rfcrec and stat/rfc/distinct profile parameters.
