Redesign of SAP® Authorizations
How to analyze roles and authorizations in the SAP system
Once you have archived the change documents from the User and Permission Management, you can use a logical index for change document properties to significantly improve performance. First, however, you must ensure that SAP Notes 1648187 and 1704771 are installed in your systems. These notes provide the SUIM_CTRL_CHG_IDX report, which adds key characteristics for change document characteristics of the PFCG and IDENTITY object classes to the SUIM_CHG_IDX table when you have marked the Indices key change documents field. All change documents are indexed (this can lead to a very long run time when the report is first run). Later, the newly added change documents are indexed regularly (e.g. weekly or monthly). To do this, specify the target date in the selection of the report and schedule it as a regular job. Note that you can only create the index until the previous day - otherwise inconsistencies may occur.
Increasingly, it is possible to make use of automation in the security environment. Although these are not yet used by many companies, they are the next step in digital transformation. By using automation intelligently, companies can free up resources for the innovation topics that really matter. In the future, we can expect both the number and power of automation tools to increase. It is therefore only a matter of time before SAP itself also delivers optimized support in the form of tools as standard.
Create order through role-based permissions
When assigning a new user group to a user, only the creation permission in the new user group is required. Alternatively, you can enable the check for activity 50 (Move) of the S_USER_GRP authorization object. In the USR_CUST table, set CHECK_MOVE_4_CNG_GRP to YES.
Roles can be assigned to users directly through user management in the SU01 transaction, role maintenance in the PFCG transaction, or mass change of users in the SU10 transaction. However, if the employee changes his or her position in the company, the old roles must be removed and new roles assigned according to the new activities. Because PFCG roles are created to represent job descriptions, you can use organisational management to assign roles to users based on the post, job, etc.
Assigning a role for a limited period of time is done in seconds with "Shortcut for SAP systems" and allows you to quickly continue your go-live.
First, consider the transport of your proposed permissions from various development systems to a consolidation system.
The case that the user buffer is not up to date is very rare.
