Authorization objects of the PFCG role
A complicated role construct
Manual addition of authorization objects to roles is sometimes necessary. However, the start authorizations for actions should be generated into the role exclusively via the role menu. For the following evaluations the table AGR_1251 is used, in which to the roles the authorization objects with their values are stored.
For an up-to-date description of the eligibility tests in the EWA, see SAP Note 863362. Updates to these checks are provided by keeping the ST-SER software component, which contains the definition of checks to be performed, up to date and enabling the automatic content update in the SAP Solution Manager.
Use AGS Security Services
The panel menus also simplify the maintenance of permissions to the audit structures. You can select the audit structures or area menus you use in role editing and import them into the roles as menus. If you want to set up a constraint on AIS users to specific audit structures or protect individual audits from access, you can use the S_SAIS authorization object. This object controls access to the audit structures or the audit numbers of individual audits.
Once you have edited the role menu, you can customise the actual permissions in the PFCG role. To do this, click the Permissions tab. Depending on the quantity of external services from the Role menu, the authorization objects will appear. The authorization objects are loaded into the PFCG role, depending on their suggestion values, which must be maintained for each external service in the USOBT_C and USOBX_C tables. You can edit these suggested values in the SU24 transaction. Make sure that external services in the Customer Name Room also have the names of external services and their suggestion values in the tables maintained (see Tip 41, "Add external services from SAP CRM to the proposal values"). Visibility and access to external services is guaranteed by the UIU_COMP authorization object. This authorization object consists of three permission fields: COMP_NAME (name of a component), COMP_WIN (component window name), COMP_PLUG (inbound plug).
If you get into the situation that authorizations are required that were not considered in the role concept, "Shortcut for SAP systems" allows you to assign the complete authorization for the respective authorization object.
In order to perform an operation in the SAP system, several authorizations may be required.
You can maintain the SE97 transaction to determine whether or not a transaction should start at origin.
