User group can be defined as required field
Running the system trace for permissions gradually for each application server is tedious. We will show you how to record permission checks on multiple servers at the same time. If you want to use the System Trace for permissions in a system with multiple application servers, you should note that the Trace can only log and evaluate data per application server at any time. Therefore, if a permission error occurs, permission administrators must first check which application server the user is logged on to with the permission issue and then start the trace on that application server. We give you a guide to record permissions checks on certain application servers, but we also show you a way to use this feature centrally.
Depending on the transaction invoked, the application can be more granular checked by this additional permission check. Therefore, transactions that are called with additional parameters might require more than one authorization object and must be protected programmatically. The following listing shows an example of a permission check that ensures that the logged-in user has the permission to start the SU24 transaction.
Implementing Permissions Concept Requirements
Before you start and define critical permissions, you should identify your core business processes or functions and then map the conflicting processes in meaningful combinations as so-called risk. The RSUSR008_009_NEW report cannot replace a GRC system (GRC = Governance, Risk, and Compliance) with the SAP Access Control component. Rather, this report should be understood and used as an indicator of the current system state. The report identifies the users that have the critical permission combinations defined in the USKRIA table. The identifier, which can also be called a risk ID, describes a combination of authorization objects with field names and field values. These are linked to one of the two operatives AND or OR available.
An SAP security check focuses in particular on the assignment of authorizations. This is what enables users to work with the SAP system in the first place, but it can, under certain circumstances, unintentionally add up to conflicts over the separation of functions or even legally critical authorizations. For this reason, tools for technical analysis must be used regularly to provide the status quo of authorization assignment and thus the basis for optimization.
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
These entries in the USOBHASH table are generated automatically when running TADIR services.
You can also find some useful tips from practice on the subject of SAP authorizations on the page www.sap-corner.de.
In our example, these are the BKPF and BSEG structures and the system variables.
