Add External Services from SAP CRM to the User Menu
The topic-related audit structures are created based on area menus. On the one hand, SAP default audit structures are offered, and on the other hand, you have the possibility to create custom audit structures as area menus. The advantage of the audit structures as area menus is that you can use existing area menus or simply create new area menus. The SE43 transaction gives you an overview of the existing area menus; It is also used to maintain and transport area menus.
Access to tables and reports should be restricted. A general grant of permissions, such as for the SE16 or SA38 transaction, is not recommended. Instead, parameter or report transactions can help. These transactions allow you to grant permissions only to specific tables or reports. You can maintain secondary authorization objects, such as S_TABU_NAM, in the Sample Value Care.
Redesign of SAP® Authorizations
As part of identifying authorization problems, it should be documented what the risks are if the current situation is maintained. Often, those responsible in the company do not want to make a correction because it causes costs and work. If the current concept works and security gaps are abstract, many people in charge are reluctant to change anything. For these reasons, the first step should be to document what problems and dangers lurk if the current concept is not corrected: First, the risk of fraud, theft, and data privacy and security breaches increases. Documentation can help identify where dangers lie. There is a fundamental problem of financial damage to the company if action is not taken. Another danger is that users will experiment with their authorizations and cause damage that can be avoided by having a clean authorization structure. Also a problem is the increased administrative overhead of granting and managing permissions. The effort increases if the current role assignments are not transparent and optimally structured.
Initial passwords for standard users are extremely risky because they are published. Make sure that this vulnerability does not exist in your system landscape. An SAP system is always shipped with certain standard users or they are automatically set up for the transport management system, for example. These default users use initial passwords that are well known. Close this vulnerability by changing the passwords and protecting the default users from unauthorised use. In this tip we will show you how you can clarify the status of your standard users' passwords and give you recommendations on the settings of your profile parameters.
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".
It is essential to implement adequate authorization checks in every ABAP development.
