SAP Data Analytics
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.
After activation, advanced security checks are available in the usual development environment within the ABAP Test Cockpit. The ABAP Test Cockpit is a graphical framework for developers. Various test tools, such as the Code Inspector or the SAP Code Vulnerability Analyser, can be integrated into this. All available test tools can be initiated from this central location and present their results in a common view. No training is required to intuit the tool.
Ensuring secure administration
Once a permission concept has been created, the implementation in the system begins. On the market, there are solutions that create PFCG rolls based on Microsoft Excel in the blink of an eye. You should, however, take a few things into account. Have you defined your roles in the form of role matrices and your organisational levels (orgés) in the form of organisational sets (orgsets)? All of this is stored in Excel documents and now you want a way to simply pour this information into PFCG rolls at the push of a button, without having to create lengthy role menus or then derive large amounts of roles, depending on how many organisational sets you have defined?
When copying the values to the Clipboard, note that only those values that you have previously marked will be copied to the Clipboard. The value intervals that can be maintained in the permission field values are separated by a tab stop, which is stored on the Clipboard.
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.
Therefore, avoid that your colleagues do not assign users to a user group, and thus ensure that the user master data maintenance permissions check is correct.
Close this vulnerability by changing the passwords and protecting the default users from unauthorised use.
