Coordinate authorisation management in customer-owned programmes
Security Automation for HR Authorizations
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.
You will need to adapt the template to your organisation's circumstances, i.e., probably define the certificate filing depending on the naming convention for your users and adjust the certificate verification. This verification of certificates ensures that no existing certificates are added in the template and that only one certificate is entered to an e-mail address. This check is necessary because sending an encrypted e-mail is cancelled if more than one valid certificate to an e-mail address is found. You can map mass imports of the certificates via this customer-specific programme. In addition, you will also need to define a way to manage certificates in your organisation, i.e. how to transfer changes to certificates to the SAP system.
Optimization of SAP licenses by analyzing the activities of your SAP users
The specific SAP_NEW authorization object imprints are provided via the SAP_BASIS component. Therefore, an SAP_NEW profile is always bound to a specific base release. Proceed as follows: With the transaction SU02, you remove all old, individual profiles from the SAP_NEW composite profile, including the profile that belongs to the start release of your upgrade. Now assign the reduced SAP_NEW permission profile to all users in the upgrade preparation system, ensuring that all users can work as usual. This step can be omitted if you are following another method to identify missing permissions. Now check all permissions in all remaining profiles within the SAP_NEW summary profile that have a higher release level than the SAP_BASIS upgrade start release. Map all required permissions to all productive roles in your permission concept. You can do this for each intermediate release individually. The next step is to adjust the permissions in your productively used roles in the PFCG transaction, and then remove the corresponding permissions from the SAP_NEW profile using the SU02 transaction. Repeat steps 3 through 4 until the SAP_NEW permission profile is empty. Work in a development system during the role adjustment phase and transport the adjustments made to your eligibility roles to your quality assurance system. After successful acceptance test, you transport them to the production system. Now you can remove the SAP_NEW profile from all users. You can then proceed with role follow-up as part of the release change in the SU25 transaction (see also Tip 43, "Customise Permissions After an Upgrade").
To maintain suggestion values, use the transaction SU24. Here you can view and customise suggestion values for all types of applications, such as SAP GUI transactions, RFC building blocks, or Web Dynpro applications. One way to maintain suggestion values is to use the system trace, which is linked to the transaction SU24 after inserting the support package named in SAP Note 1631929 and the correction instructions. This means that from the transaction SU24 you start the system trace, collect trace data and use this data directly during maintenance.
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
It is therefore only a matter of time before SAP itself also delivers optimized support in the form of tools as standard.
Suppose you want to allow access to certain data for specific users or revisors.
