WHY ACCESS CONTROL
The case that the user buffer is not up to date is very rare. The auth/new_buffering profile parameter sets the value 4 to immediately update the permissions, i.e. changes to the user root or roles or profiles, and write them to the USRBF2 database table without requiring a new login. This value is set by default. The fact that the buffer is not up-to-date is recognised by the fact that existing permissions that are not in the buffer are marked in the transaction SU56 with the note "In the root data but not in the user buffer".
The handling of organisational levels in PFCG roles wants to be learned. If these are maintained manually, problems arise when deriving rolls. We will show you how to correct the fields in question. Manually maintained organisational levels (orgons) in PFCG roles cannot be maintained via the Origen button. These organisational levels prevent the inheritance concept from being implemented correctly. You can see that organisational levels have been maintained manually when you enter values via the Ormits button, but the changes are not applied to the authorization object.
Which challenges cannot be solved with authorization tools alone?
Armed with this information, it goes to the conceptual work. Describe which employee groups, which organisational units use which applications and define the scope of use. In the description, indicate for which organisational access (organisational level, but also cost centres, organisational units, etc.) the organisational unit per application should be entitled; So what you're doing is mapping out the organisation. It is also important to note which mandatory functional separation must be taken into account. This gives you a fairly detailed description, which in principle already indicates business roles (in relation to the system).
Make sure that the client-independent tables for logging are always logged when the parameters are not set to OFF. In addition to the parameters listed here, the table itself must also have the table logging hook set; This is usually done with the help of the transaction SE13. The settings are made in development and then transported to the other systems. The SAP standard already provides some tables for logging; For an overview of these tables, see SAP Note 112388 (tables requiring logging). You can evaluate the logging settings of the tables using the RDDPRCHK report or the RDDPRCHK_AUDIT transaction in the SAP system. The selection is made in the start image of the report, e.g. via the table name or the selection of options for logging.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
The EWA is deliberately not customisable, as it is designed to alert customers to SAP-rated settings.
Therefore, we will show you how to prevent such problems by limiting the character set.
