List of required organisational levels and their value
For simplicity, we want to explain this example by using the PFCG_TIME_DEPENDENCY background job. This job calls the report RHAUTUPD_NEW or can be executed directly with the transaction PFUD. Imagine that there's no transactional code for this job yet.
Even the best authorization tools cannot compensate for structural and strategic imbalances. Even a lack of know-how about SAP authorizations cannot be compensated for cost-effectively by means of tools.
Check current situation
If you use change request management in SAP Solution Manager, you can use the system recommendations in an integrated way. To do this, create an amendment in the system recommendations for the SAP hints to be implemented. To access the system recommendations, you must have permission for the SM_FUNCS object (ACTVT = 03; SM_APPL = SYSTEM_ REC; SM_FUNC =
, such as SECURITY).
You can use authorization objects to restrict access to tables or their content through transactions, such as SE16 or SM30. The S_TABU_DIS authorization object allows you to grant access to tables associated with specific table permission groups. You can view, maintain, and assign table permission groups in transaction SE54 (see Tip 55, "Maintain table permission groups"). For example, if an administrator should have access to user management tables, check the permission status using the SE54 transaction. You will notice that all the user management tables are assigned to the SC table permission group.
However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".
How do I make an authorization trace on a user (STAUTHTRACE)? With the authorization trace you can record which authorization objects are used by a user.
If you have an older SAP NetWeaver release than 7.00 installed, only two possible values for the customising switch BNAME_RESTRICT are available after the implementation of SAP Note 1731549.
