Reset Manually Maintained Organisation Levels to Roles
Map roles through organisational management
Structural authorizations have a so-called root object, i.e. a starting point and an associated evaluation path. The organization chart of the company is stored in SAP HCM. This makes it possible to see how which positions are linked to each other. If a specific piece of information about an employee is required, it can be read out via a path. At the end there is a list of objects.
In order to avoid inconsistencies during the release of the transport order, all the roles on the order will be blocked during release. If roles cannot be locked, the job release fails. You can see the reason for the failed share and the cause of other errors in the transport log.
Introduction & Best Practices
Especially in complex and multi-level system landscapes, roles may be assigned to a user twice. In addition, roles may also have expired due to the specification of a validity period. To keep your role concept and your user administration maintainable and clean, it is recommended to delete these obsolete roles. You can do this by clicking on the report PRGN_COMPRESS_TIMES. This program is also available via the PFCG under the system tab "Utilities" and category "Mass adjustment".
The path with the associated permission group DEVL contains the local temporary files of the ABAP Frontend Editor of the ABAP development environment (transactions SE38, SE80, SE24, etc.). The two paths with the ADMN permission group show how logically related paths can be grouped into a S_PATH permission check. The two entries with the FILE permission group show how paths for Windows can be completed in systems with application servers of different operating systems. The core.sem and coreinfo entries are required to write run-time errors in the SNAP snapshot table. The dev_ and gw_ entries allow you to view files from the developer trace and Gateway Log in the ST11 transaction. If the suggestion in the first entry of the table is too restrictive, you can choose the alternative in the following table. This entry only forces a permission check on S_PATH and the ALL permission group; You should, however, only grant such permission very restrictively.
For the assignment of existing roles, regular authorization workflows require a certain minimum of turnaround time, and not every approver is available at every go-live. With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you have options to assign urgently needed authorizations anyway and to additionally secure your go-live.
This makes authorization concepts, authorization tools and automated protection of the SAP system all the more important in order to meet the stringent legal requirements with little administrative effort.
From release 10.1, SAP Access Control supports the creation of users and the assignment of roles and privileges in HANA databases.
