Understanding SAP HANA Permissions Tests
You want to document internal system revisions and authorisation monitoring? The new cockpit of the Audit Information System offers you some practical functions. There are several legal requirements that require a regular audit of your SAP system. As a general rule, there are internal and external auditors who carry out such audits. In addition, user and permission management can set up their own monitoring of permissions to avoid unpleasant surprises during audits. Auditor documentation is often standardised in the case of external auditors; for the internal audit or your own monitoring, however, in many cases a suitable documentation is missing. In spite of automated evaluations, external auditors often also demand an activation of the Audit Information System (AIS). We will show you how to activate the AIS and take advantage of the new AIS cockpit.
You must set up a message class for later use. To do this, you will be prompted automatically when the transaction GGB0 is first called. If some relevant fields of the complete document are hidden, i.e. not available, please refer to the instructions in the SAPHinweis 413956. Set up validation in the GGB0 transaction (such as GALILEO) and determine the steps of validation. In the validation process, copy the RGGBR000 programme into your Customer Name Room, replacing the last three characters with the number of the client in which the validation will be performed. Then assign your new customer-owned programme with the GCX2 transaction to the GBLR user exit control workspace. This assignment has created the prerequisite for client-dependent user exits. If you want to set up a client-independent user exit, do the same, but use the transaction GCX1.
The permission checks are logged as part of the system trace in transaction ST01. It records all permission checks and validated permission values for a specific application server, and specifies, depending on the client, whether the permission checks were successful or not. The Trace display has now been improved (see also SAP Note 1373111).
Secure management of access options in the SAP system is essential for any company. This makes it all the more important to analyze and improve the authorizations assigned. This step serves as optimal preparation for your S/4 HANA migration. Managed Services supports central and efficient administration to ensure an optimal overview. In order to sustainably improve your processes, a database provides information on possible optimizations for SAP licenses.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
If inconsistencies exist, they can be corrected using the report SU24_AUTO_REPAIR.
The Profile Generator is also used to set up the user menus that appear when users log on to the SAP system.
