Authorization object documentation
Small companies would theoretically benefit from an authorization tool. However, in many cases the tools are too costly, so the cost-benefit ratio is usually not given.

How to maintain security policies and map them to your users is described in Tip 5, "Defining User Security Policy." You need a separate security policy for administrators to implement this tip, which is often useful for other reasons. In this security policy, you then set the policy attribute SERVER_LOGON_PRIVILEGE to 1. For example, you can also include the DISABLE_PASSWORD_LOGON policy attribute setting, because administrators often want to be able to log in with a password on the system.
Check Profit Centre Permissions in FI
If you only want to translate the description of the role, it is recommended to record the PFCG transaction and to change the source language of the role using the Z_ROLE_SET_MASTERLANG report before the LSMW script runs through. The report on how to change the source language can be found in SAP Note 854311. Similarly, you can use the SECATT (Extended Computer Aided Test Tool, eCATT) transaction to perform the translation instead of the LSMW transaction. Furthermore, automation is possible with the help of a customer-specific ABAP programme. To do this, you should take a closer look at the AGR_TEXTS table. The table contains the different text blocks in different languages. Here we show you a section of the table with our example role Z_SE63. Short texts are assigned a value of 00000 in the column LINE, and long texts are assigned a value of 00001 to 0000x. The language keys are displayed in the SPRAS column. An ABAP programme now allows you to write the counterparts for the text fields in the target language into the fields in the tables.

You can greatly facilitate the maintenance of permissions in controlling by defining the RESPAREA field as the organisational level, and thus using your cost centre and profit centre hierarchies. In the SAP system, you can define cost centre hierarchies and profit centre hierarchies. For example, they can map the expiration organisation or a matrix organisation in your company. To facilitate the mapping of permissions for the controlling reports, you can grant permissions to nodes in those hierarchies. You can do this by assigning permissions through the RESPAREA field, which is used in certain authorization objects in the controlling. We would like to facilitate the creation of roles for these permissions by explaining to you which activities are necessary in advance to define the RESPAREA field as an organisational level.

Secure your go-live additionally with "Shortcut for SAP systems". You can assign necessary SAP authorizations quickly and easily directly in the system.

The role menu of the PFCG role now consists of folders that represent all logical links within a scope start page, and external services that represent the logical links and the area start pages themselves.
