Checking at Program Level with AUTHORITY-CHECK
Organisationally restrict table editing permissions
Until now, there were no ways to define different password rules or password change requirements for these users. Today, this is possible with the security guidelines that you assign to users and clients. In the following we will show you how to define security policies and how they work.
If you do not see the Expert Mode button for step 2 in the SU25 transaction, check whether you can call the expert mode from the SU24 transaction by clicking the Sample Value Match button. In this view, it is possible to select the proposed values to be matched by specific selections, so that not all proposed values are used for matching. In the first selection, you can choose the data to take. You can select here whether only SAP standard applications or customer or partner applications should be considered. You can still limit the selection by type of application, package, or component shortcut in the Other Constraints pane. In the Application Search pane, you can also limit the SU22 data to an upload file, transport jobs, or role menus.
They have encountered a role that includes manually maintained organisational levels. Even if you correct the error manually in the role by manually deleting the manually maintained value of the organisation levels in the authorization object, the value in question is not drawn from the organisation level. The AGR_RESET_ORG_LEVELS report allows you to reset these values for the role. The manually maintained organisational data will be deleted, and only the values that have been maintained via the Origen button will be drawn.
Are you already using BAPIs in user care? For example, you can use them to set up a password reset self service. We show you how to do this and what you need to pay attention to. Especially with large system landscapes and systems that are only sporadically used, users often forget their password. Strengthened password rules (e.g. to change a password regularly or to require certain character types to be used), which are supposed to serve security, do their part. Forgotten passwords and the frequently resulting user locks are unfortunately often lost to the user when access to a system is most needed. Unlocking a user and assigning a new password is rarely done in real time, even with large 24-hour support service departments. This problem, which I am sure you are familiar with, does not exactly promote employee satisfaction and productivity. A self-service that uses the Business Application Programming Interfaces (BAPIs) can counteract this.
During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.
For this reason, it should also be ensured in advance that all parameters are set up in accordance with the company's specifications.
In addition, authorization concepts ensure that employees do not create beautiful balances and thus cause damage to stakeholders and tax authorities.
