Authorization check
Authorization concept
For users for which no user type has been defined in the ZBV, either the default user type of the subsidiary system or the user type defined by the local measurement programme (transaction USMM) run is reported in the Contractual User Type column. In this case, no value is reported in the Value column in the control centre. If the user type has been defined via a local run of the surveying programme and this type of user is not stored in the ZBV, you should re-import the licence data for this user from the subsidiary system into the ZBV using the transaction SCUG. If there are users in the daughter systems for which the value in the columns of the Contractual User Type and Value in ZBV Central differ, either the IDoc of the ZBV has not yet been processed, or the user type has been changed locally. In these cases, you should check what the differences are and also correct them.

If the FIORI interface is then used under SAP S/4HANA, the additional components must also be taken into account here. Authorizations are no longer made available to the user via "transaction entries" in the menu of a role. Instead, catalogs and groups are now used here. These are stored similar to the "transaction entries" in the menu of a role and assigned to the user. However, these catalogs must first be filled with corresponding tiles in the so-called "Launchpad Designer". It is important to ensure that all relevant components (tile component and target assignment component(s)) are always stored in the catalog. The FIORI catalog is used to provide a user with technical access to a tile. A corresponding FIORI group is used to make these tiles visually available to the user for access in the Launchpad.

In the event that such conflicts nevertheless arise, regular checks should be established as part of an internal control system. Furthermore, the authorization concept includes content such as the integration of the data owner, security-relevant system settings, specifications for maintaining authorization default values (transaction SU24) and documentation requirements.

Which applications have similar or identical features? Use application search to find out. Suppose you want to allow access to certain data for specific users or revisors. An auditor can usually view the contents of defined tables; However, in order not to give the auditor permission to use the generic table tools, such as the SE16, SM30 transactions, etc. , you need to verify that the relevant tables may be provided through other transactions. The actual function of the alternative application should not be used.

Assigning a role for a limited period of time is done in seconds with "Shortcut for SAP systems" and allows you to quickly continue your go-live.

This report can be found in the User Information System (transaction SUIM).

At you will also find a lot of useful information on the subject of SAP authorizations.

You can manage access to projects in the IMG via customising permissions and thus limit the user circle.
