What are SAP authorizations?
Include customising tables in the IMG
If the system trace has recorded permission data for this authorization object, it will appear in the right pane of the window. In the left pane, you can see the existing suggestion values. If you notice that you do not have any suggestion values that you think are necessary and have been recorded by the trace, you can set the suggestion values to Yes by selecting the appropriate row, column or field in the right pane and clicking the Apply button. You are free to make any manual adjustments to the field values. Afterwards, confirm maintenance and your changes are saved for this authorization object. Do the same for all other authorization objects.

For these scenarios, there are several ways to determine which systems and clients to display to the user in the self-service selection. We therefore describe a possibility that you can use in all scenarios. To do this, use the BAPI BAPI_USER_GET_DETAIL, which you must call for the SAP User ID on all relevant systems. Check the entry for the RETURN table parameter first. If the entry is empty, the user is present in the SAPS system. Any error messages during the call are displayed in this parameter (e.g. if the user is not present). If the PROFILES or ACTIVITYGROUPS table parameters have entries, permissions in this system are assigned to the user. In addition, you can use the REF_USER export parameter to identify a reference user that is associated with it. However, you must also check that it has permissions. You can also determine if a lock exists when you call the BAPI BAPI_USER_GET_DETAIL. To do this, use the ISLOCKED export parameter, which returns a four-character combination of the L (locked) and U (not locked) characters.

Security notes correct vulnerabilities in SAP standard software that can be exploited internally or externally. Use the System Recommendations application to keep your systems up to date. SAP software is subject to high quality assurance standards - however, security vulnerabilities may occur in the code. These vulnerabilities can, in the worst case scenario, open the door to external and internal intruders. It is not difficult to find guidance on exploiting these vulnerabilities in relevant internet forums. A permission concept is only as good as the code that performs the permission checks. If no permission check occurs in your code, the permission concept cannot restrict access. For these reasons, SAP has introduced Security Patch Day (every other Tuesday of the month), which will allow you to better plan for implementing the security advisories. In addition, you can use the System Recommendations application in the SAP Solution Manager to get a detailed, cross-system overview of the security advice you need. The system status and the SAP hints already implemented are taken into account. With this support, ensure that your system landscape is at the current security level.

With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.

This also includes access to sensitive data, which are e.g. personal.
