Make sense in maintaining proposal values
Customising User and Permissions Management
Here, the authorizations are either derived from the role menu (through the authorization default values (transaction SU24) or can also be edited manually in expert mode. The individual authorization objects are divided into object classes. For example, the object class AAAB (cross-application authorization objects) contains the authorization object S_TCODE (transaction code check at transaction start) with the authorization field value TCD (transaction code).

Software license management is essential to get an accurate overview of all SAP transactions. We provide you with a transaction database in which the transactions are evaluated with named user license types. Your advantage: the actual usage of your SAP users is matched with the transaction database. "SAP direct access" analyzes the licenses for actual usage and classifies the critical cases. With SAP license optimization we maintain your individual license contracts and compare the results with LAW. We can point out discrepancies, including drill-down to user/client level, directly.

If you only want to translate the description of the role, it is recommended to record the PFCG transaction and to change the source language of the role using the Z_ROLE_SET_MASTERLANG report before the LSMW script runs through. The report on how to change the source language can be found in SAP Note 854311. Similarly, you can use the SECATT (Extended Computer Aided Test Tool, eCATT) transaction to perform the translation instead of the LSMW transaction.

The first line defines that access to all files is forbidden unless other settings have been made for them in the other lines. The asterisk (*) is in the first place here and in this case for all files and paths. If the asterisk is in a different position, it is interpreted as part of the file name, which is not allowed in Microsoft Windows, for example. In our example table, setting the switches FS_NOREAD = X and FS_NOWRITE = X for all paths prohibits reading and writing. This makes the table a white list. This is preferable to a black list for security reasons. SPTH, on the other hand, becomes a Black List if you remove the first line with PATH = * in our example or if you do not set any of the switches FS_NOREAD, FS_NOWRITE or FS_BRGRU. The second line with PATH = /tmp allows read and write access for all files starting with /tmp, similar to a permission value /tmp*, as an exception to the access ban defined in the first line for all files and paths. This setting is not limited to subdirectories, but includes, for example, all files whose name starts with /tmp-xy. The third line with PATH = /tmp/myfiles defines a permission group with FS_BRGRU = FILE, triggering the subsequent permission check on the S_PATH object. The SAVEFLAG = X switch defines that these files will be included in a backup procedure; however, this is not relevant for the permission award.

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".
