Customise evaluation paths in SAP CRM for indirect role mapping
Excel-based tools that do not use the PFCG transaction in the background, like eCATT, function almost exclusively on the one-way principle: Simultaneous maintenance of roles in the PFCG transaction is no longer possible, and changes there are overwritten by the tool. This means that all permission administrators must work exclusively with the new solution.
Confidential information from your SAP system can also be sent by email. Make sure that this data is only transmitted encrypted. Your SAP system contains a lot of data, which is often confidential. This can be business-critical or personal data or even passwords. It happens again and again that such data must also be sent by e-mail. Therefore, make sure that this information is always encrypted and signed if necessary. Encryption is intended to ensure the confidentiality of the data, i.e. that only the recipient of the e-mail should be able to read it. The digital signature serves the integrity of the data; the sender of an e-mail can be verified. We present the configuration steps required for encryption and provide examples of how to encrypt the sending of initial passwords. There are two ways to encrypt and sign emails in the SAP system: via SAPconnect, via a secure third-party email proxy.

If the Profit Centre field is not filled in the journal view (Table BSEG), the general ledger view (usually Table FAGLFLEXA) is checked. To compensate, we recommend that you include the Profit Centre in the selection fields of the balancing transactions.
During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.
This makes authorization concepts, authorization tools and automated protection of the SAP system all the more important.
You can also find some useful tips from practice on the subject of SAP authorizations on the page www.sap-corner.de.
The programme is then checked to see if it is included in the table of allowed programmes (table TPCPROG, configuration with the transaction TPC4).
