There are several ways to view the implementation of permission checks: Either you jump directly from the system trace for permissions to the appropriate locations in the programme code, or you go over the definition of the authorization objects. To view the permission checks from the permissions system trace, start the trace from the STAUTHTRACE transaction and run the applications you want to view. Now open the evaluation of the Trace. In the Programme Name column, you can see the programme that includes the Permissions Check. Double-click to go directly to the code site where the permission check is implemented.
Have you ever wondered who has critical permissions in your system? Have you lacked the tool and approach to identify these users? The user system in an SAP system is always connected to a permission assignment. Over the life cycle of a user in the SAPS system, more and more permissions are accumulated if they are not withdrawn once they are no longer needed. This accumulation is bound to result in users being able to perform more actions than you would like as the permission administrator. To avoid this, we want to give you a suitable tool.
Displaying sensitive data
If you do not encrypt communication between the client and the application servers, it is surprisingly easy for a third party to catch the username and password. Therefore, make sure you encrypt this interface! There is often uncertainty as to whether the password in SAP systems is encrypted by default and whether there is encryption during communication between the client and application servers by default. This ignorance can lead to fatal security vulnerabilities in your system landscape. We would therefore like to explain at this point how you can secure the passwords in your system and protect yourself against a pick-up of the passwords during transmission.
The simulation of the mixing process is delivered with SAP Note 1941325. When you call step 2c, you will get a list of all the roles with the information about whether the respective role is already mixed (green light) or still needs to be mixed (red light). Highlight a role in this list. Use the Mix button to get the simulation of the mixing process for the selected roll.
The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
The information on which values can be entered can be read from the Permissions system trace and maintained manually in the PFCG role.
You can also find some useful tips from practice on the subject of SAP authorizations on the page www.sap-corner.de.
The SPRO transaction allows you to edit the newly created customising project.
