Know why which user has which SAP authorization
You have already created roles for SAP CRM and would like to add additional external services? Nothing easier than that! Create PFCG roles for the SAP CRM Web Client, typically so that you complete the customising of the CRM business role before creating the PFCG role, based on this customising. However, the customising of the CRM business role may be updated. The PFCG role must now also be adjusted, otherwise the newly configured area start pages or the logical links will not be visible. However, there is no automatism for this, as it exists during the initial creation of the role menu. You must apply the adjustment manually in the PFCG role.
With "SIVIS as a Service" we present you the best solution for central user and authorization management in SAP. This replaces and protects you from the development end of your central user administration (SAP ZBV). SIVIS offers over 20 functions that you can flexibly combine (SaaS model), e.g. over 1,000 role templates for S/4HANA! This means that a new authorization concept can be quickly implemented! The encrypted connection to your SAP systems enables secure distribution of all changes made in the SAP standard.
Risk: historically grown authorizations
Have you ever tried to manually track who among the users in your SAP system has critical authorizations? Depending on your level of knowledge and experience, this work can take a lot of time. If audits have also been announced, the pressure is particularly high. After all, it is difficult to fulfill all requirements regarding SAP authorizations manually.
In principle, a technical 4-eyes principle must be implemented within the complete development or customizing and transport process. Without additional tools, this can only be achieved in the SAP standard by assigning appropriate authorizations within the transport landscape. Depending on the strategies used, only certain transport steps within the development system should be assigned to users. When using the SAP Solution Manager ("ChaRM") for transport control, for example, only the authorizations for releasing transport tasks should normally be assigned here. The complete processing of a transport in the development system consists of four steps: Creating and releasing a transport request (the actual transport container), creating and releasing a transport task (the authorization for individual users to attach objects to the respective transport request).
For the assignment of existing roles, regular authorization workflows require a certain minimum of turnaround time, and not every approver is available at every go-live. With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you have options to assign urgently needed authorizations anyway and to additionally secure your go-live.
It takes too long to read out the User and Permissions Management change notes? With a good archiving concept, you can improve performance.
This does not mean, of course, that there are not very good partner products for the care of roles.
