What are SAP authorizations?
Which challenges cannot be solved with authorization tools alone?
Especially in complex and multi-level system landscapes, roles may be assigned to a user twice. In addition, roles may also have expired due to the specification of a validity period. To keep your role concept and your user administration maintainable and clean, it is recommended to delete these obsolete roles. You can do this by clicking on the report PRGN_COMPRESS_TIMES. This program is also available via the PFCG under the system tab "Utilities" and category "Mass adjustment".

They have encountered a role that includes manually maintained organisational levels. Even if you correct the error manually in the role by manually deleting the manually maintained value of the organisation levels in the authorization object, the value in question is not drawn from the organisation level. The AGR_RESET_ORG_LEVELS report allows you to reset these values for the role. The manually maintained organisational data will be deleted, and only the values that have been maintained via the Origen button will be drawn.
Set up permissions to access specific CO-PA measures
In this article, I show you with which transaction you can easily and quickly run the authorization trace in SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA. The displayed result provides a good overview of the involved authorizations. In this course, existing roles and profiles in authorization management (transaction PFCG) can be extended. In addition, the authorization trace is useful for maintaining authorization default values (transactions SU22 and SU24).

Some queries are also a bit complicated with the SUIM transaction. With SAP Query, you can quickly assemble queries that enable individual and more complex data evaluations. Do you want to know quickly which valid users currently have a modified access to a particular table, or what roles are users granted permission for a particular transaction? The SAP standard tool, the user information system, is an excellent solution for this type of data retrieval. However, at the latest during the next review, targeted queries with data combinations - and thus several SUIM query sequences - must be delivered within a short time. SAP queries can facilitate this task. An SAP Query is essentially a clear way to scan tables for specific data away from the SE16 transaction. There is the possibility to link multiple tables (join), which makes multiple SE16 queries just one SAP query. For example, if you want to know what roles users are entitled to perform the SCC4 transaction, you can use the SUIM transaction to query to determine which users can perform the transaction and view the roles that enable it in another query, but there is no result that shows both.

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

This information should be part of the naming convention, as these roles differ only in their organisational but not in their functional form.
