Authorization Analysis
Permissions with Maintenance Status Used
Do you also work in a complex system landscape where roles are decentralised? Then, inconsistencies can occur by transporting profiles from different systems to a target system. We'll show you how to prevent that. In the case of decentralised maintenance of eligibility roles, i.e. maintenance of roles in different systems or clients, there is a risk that the number sequences for the generation of eligibility profiles overlap. You can then generate profiles with the same name for different roles in different clients. As soon as you transport these eponymous permission profiles into a common target system, the profile will be overwritten by the newly imported profile and inconsistencies will arise. As a result, you may, for example, assign an ERP Permissions Role an SCM permission profile. This may result in a user assigned the ERP role not obtaining the required permissions or even too many permissions. You also have a problem if you want to use the permission profile to determine the source system and the client in which this profile was generated. This is not possible if the first and third characters of the SAP System ID (SID) and the number sequence for generating the permission profile match.

First, create an overview of the customising tables currently available in your system. To do this, open the DD02L table and search for tables that start with Y, Z or your specific customer name space. Tables with delivery class C (such as customising, found in column A) are the relevant tables in this context. The descriptive texts to the tables can be found in the table DD02T.

We can now execute the test script en masse with any input. We need a test configuration for this. In the example Z_ROLLOUT_STAMMDATEN, enter a corresponding name and click the Create Object button. On the Attribute tab, specify a general description and component. On the Configuration tab, select the test script you created earlier in the corresponding field. Then click the Variants tab. The variants are the input in our script. Since we do not know the format in which eCATT needs the input values, it is helpful to download it first. To do so, select External Variants/Path and click Download Variants.

Existing log files are managed using the SM18 transaction. Here you can delete the log files in all active instances. This requires the indication of a minimum age in days for deletion. The smallest possible value is three days, without taking the current day into account in the calculation.

Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".

The traceability of changes is also important in the development system, which is why the authorizations listed below should only be assigned very restrictively or only to emergency users.

The website offers a lot of useful information about SAP authorizations.

You can also maintain and manage the solutions yourself afterwards, or you can trust us to run them for you: We call this Customer Success.
