With the help of the SAP-Note 1642106 it is possible to automatically perform the text comparison from SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.0. Inserting the note will automatically perform text matching for any changes to PFCG roles in the central system. We recommend that you install the support package that is appropriate for your release, which is specified in the SAP Note, because inserting the hint requires a lot of manual work. With the help of the SUSR_ZBV_GET_RECEIVER_PROFILES report, you can turn on the new functionality in all subsidiary systems where the correction information has also been recorded. If you run the report in the central system with the default selection, all subsidiary systems are included. You can check whether the function is present in the daughter systems in the report log.

The S_RFCACL authorization object is removed from the SAP_ALL profile by inserting SAP Note 1416085. This notice is included in all newer support packages for the base component; This affects all systems down to base release 4.6C. The reason for this change is that the S_RFCACL authorization object, and especially the expression "total permission" (*), is classified as particularly critical for its fields RFC_SYSID, RFC_CLIENT and RFC_USER. These fields define from which systems and clients or for which user IDs applications should be allowed on the target system. Thus, the overall authorisation for these fields allows the login from any system and client or for any user and thus creates significant security risks.
You know that changing your SU24 data involves mixing the roles in question. Previously, the permission administrators had to select roles from, for example, the SUIM transaction to edit them. Often, the remixing of the respective roles is also forgotten. In order to ensure that you can set the mixing mode for the respective roles directly when maintaining the data in the transaction SU24, the function has been provided here with the respective support packages named in SAP Note 1896191. Correction is used to change the mixing mode for PFCG: On/Off/Roles. The function assigns the shuffle mode to the roles, which corresponds to step 2c of the transaction SU25 (see tip 43, "Customise Permissions After an Upgrade"). You can enable this function by using the value Y for the parameter SU2X_SET_FORCE_MIX in the table PRGN_CUST. The status of the mixing mode can be checked by clicking the button Mixing mode for PFCG: Enquire On/Off. By default, this feature is off. The Roles button (Use in Single Roles) identifies all the roles that the selected application contains and displays them directly in the SU24 transaction. You will receive a list of all matching roles in the SUPC transaction by selecting the Also-to-be-matched roles option, and you can now gradually update the roles.

A red symbol will not be used in the eligibility tests in the EEA, as the rating has to be carried out individually for each enterprise. There are also different requirements within the system landscape, e.g. on production or development systems. The EWA is deliberately not customisable, as it is designed to alert customers to SAP-rated settings.

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

Nevertheless, it provides good guidance for the initial resolution of security gaps.
