User Information System (SUIM)
In the area of group consolidation, an authorization concept ensures that no data can be deliberately manipulated, for example to change balance sheets. This can prevent significant financial or reputational damage to banks and stakeholders. Furthermore, access to financial data of subdivisions of a group, such as individual business units or companies, must be restricted to those employees who are allowed to access it because their current activities require it. As a result, a controller of a business unit, for example, can only view the consolidated figures of his business unit, but not the figures of the entire group. Further authorization roles are required, for example, for external auditors. These auditors check all the figures for the entire group, but may only have read access to this data.
Another important factor that should be considered in an authorization concept is to use a uniform naming convention because, on the one hand, many things cannot be changed after the initial naming and, on the other hand, this ensures searchability in the SAP system. In addition, the preset authorization roles of the SAP system should never be overwritten or deleted, but only copies of them should be created, which can then be adapted as desired.
Consolidate user-level role mapping
You can schedule background jobs in the SM36 and SA38 transactions, but also in a variety of application transactions. It is important to know that special permissions are not necessary for the installation, modification, etc. of your own jobs. An exception is the release of background jobs; it is protected by a permission. Permissions are also required for the activities on other users' background jobs, and the following authorization objects are available in SAP backend processing: S_BTCH_JOB controls the access rights to other users' jobs. S_BTCH_NAM allows you to schedule programmes under a different user ID. S_BTCH_ADM grants parent permissions that are usually only required by administrators.
In both cases the transaction S_BCE_68001410 is started. Here you can search for an authorization object by authorization object, authorization object text, object class and other options.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
Now check the SY-SUBRC system variable.

Note that the global check variant of the Code Inspector that you created in the transaction SCI and that is entered as the default in the transaction ATC (ATC configuration) includes the security tests of the extended programme check of the SAP Code Vulnerability Analyser.
