Prevent excessive permissions on HR reporting
You can influence the default behaviour of various transactions and parameters with the customising switches for the maintenance of Session Manager and Profile Generator as well as the user and permission management. The SSM_CID table gives you an overview of all customising switches supplied by SAP, specifying the relevant tables SSM_CUST, SSM_COL, PRGN_CUST and USR_CUST. The short description of the customising switch refers to the relevant and current SAP references. The actual settings can be found in the SSM_CUST, PRGN_CUST and USR_CUST tables.
Consulting firms adjust the roles and authorizations in retrospect. This usually means "making the best of it" and making ad hoc adjustments - in other words, not fixing the root cause and cleaning up from scratch. Companies should therefore ask themselves: how can this be avoided? What requirements must a DSGVO-compliant authorization concept fulfill? How can we remain meaningful regarding the authorizations of specific individuals in the system and the purpose of the authorizations?
Correct settings of the essential parameters
If you now want to assign PFCG roles indirectly to users via the organisation management, you have to use evaluation methods. Evaluation paths define a chain of relationships between objects within a hierarchy. For example, they define how an organisational unit or a post can be assigned to another organisational unit. This relationship is set to the User ID. However, if the business partner has also been maintained in organisational management, there is no standard evaluation path for this case and the user assigned to the role is not found. However, since in SAP CRM the user IDs are not directly assigned to a post, but via the business partner, you have to make adjustments to the evaluation paths before you can assign the roles indirectly.
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.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
By using automation intelligently, companies can free up resources for the innovation topics that really matter.
In this case, you will also designate the P_ORGIN (or P_ORGINCON, P_ORGXX and P_ORGXXCON) authorization object.
