Full verification of user group permissions when creating the user
Communication User
Today we come to the error analysis with authorizations. The best thing that can happen is the error of the type: "I don't have authorization to do this and that!" (CASE1). Worse is the case that someone has too many permissions, i.e. the type: "User xy should not have this permission anymore" (CASE2). How to proceed? First of all we come to case 1 This case, that someone has no authorization for something, supports the system excellently! The code word is SU53! If a transaction encounters an authorization error, then this error is written to a memory area that can be displayed. For this there is once the transaction SU53 or the menu selection "System/Utilities/Anc authorization check". With this function, the system outputs information showing which authorization objects are missing for the user.

In the IT sector, we have to face new challenges every day. New technologies require us to act accordingly in order to always keep the current system landscape up to date, to strengthen our position on the market and, of course, to gain a technological edge over other competitors. This is also reflected in the corresponding SAP system landscape. Read in the two-part blog series why an authorization concept should be considered as early as possible in a project phase - especially when converting to SAP S/4HANA.

Customising the organisational criteria is cross-client. Activation of the organisational criteria depends on the client. If you want to use these permissions in different clients, you must activate the respective organisational criteria for the respective client. Now you can use the organisational criterion in your PFCG role. To do this, enter the S_TABU_LIN authorization object with the organisational criterion you created. Assign the respective attributes with the organisational values for which the user should be entitled. Along with the individual values, you can specify intervals for your organisational criterion so that you can assign permissions to users for multiple organisational values.

Armed with this information, it goes to the conceptual work. Describe which employee groups, which organisational units use which applications and define the scope of use. In the description, indicate for which organisational access (organisational level, but also cost centres, organisational units, etc.) the organisational unit per application should be entitled; So what you're doing is mapping out the organisation. It is also important to note which mandatory functional separation must be taken into account. This gives you a fairly detailed description, which in principle already indicates business roles (in relation to the system).

The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
