Sustainably protect your data treasures with the right authorization management
The maintenance status of permissions in PFCG roles plays an important role in using the Role Menu. The Maintenance Status allows you to determine how the authorization object entered the role and how it was maintained there. The blending function of role maintenance credentials in the PFCG transaction is a powerful tool that helps you with role processing. If the Roll menu has been changed, the Mix feature will automatically add the permissions suggestions that are included in a single role. This is based on the proposed authorisation values defined in the transaction SU24, whose maintenance status is standard in the authorisation maintenance. These permission values are also called default permissions. Permissions with different maintenance status, i.e. Care for, Modified or Manual, are not changed during mixing - the exception is removing transactions.
A user is displayed in the results list if one of the two transactions with the corresponding expression is included in its corresponding permission profile. If the logical link were fully linked to OR, a corresponding user would appear in the results list if only one of the four permissions is in the user's master set and thus in the permission profile.
Handle the default users and their initial passwords
However, the preferred and more comprehensive variant of a programmatic permission check is the use of the AUTHORITY_CHECK_TCODE function block. This function block not only responds to a missing permission when the programme starts, but can also specify that only the NO-CHECK check marks maintained in the transaction SE97 allow external calling from another transaction context. This is determined by the function block and not by the developer.
Authorizations are used to map the organizational structure, business processes and separation of functions. Therefore, they control the access options of users in the SAP system. The security of business data depends directly on the authorizations assigned. For this reason, the assignment of authorizations must be well planned and executed in order to achieve the desired security.
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.
Previously, the permission administrators had to select roles from, for example, the SUIM transaction to edit them.
