Object S_BTCH_NAM and S_BTCH_NA1 (use of foreign users in Steps)
Once you have defined your criteria for executing the report, you can create different variants for the report and schedule corresponding jobs to automatically lock down or invalidate the inactive users. If you want to start the report in a system that is connected to a Central User Management, you should consider the following points: You can only set local user locks. You can set the validity period only if the maintenance is set to Local in the settings of the Central User Management (this setting is set in the SCUM transaction).
You assign a reference user to a dialogue user by registering the reference user for additional rights in the SU01 transaction on the Roles tab in the Reference User field. If you are using Central User Administration (ZBV), the assignment applies to all connected systems. If the reference user does not exist in one of the systems, the mapping is ignored. However, the use of reference users also creates risks. This makes it easier to summarise permissions because it is difficult to keep track of the assigned permissions. In SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.0 and above, reference users are considered in the reports of the user information system.
Security in development systems
Without generic table logging, certain changes in the system are not traceable. Learn how to turn on table logging in the system for a large set of tables. The SAP system writes change documents for most changes - but not all. Specifically, changes to tables in which the customising is performed are not recorded in the modification documents. This may lead to a lack of comprehensibility of changes. Avoid this by basically enabling table logging and then setting logging for specific additional tables. You should always enable table logging for all clients. However, during a release upgrade it may be necessary to temporarily disable table logging.
Repair defective field list in SU24 suggestion values: This function verifies that all the authorization objects used in the permission proposals are consistent, that is, fit to the authorization object definitions from transaction SU21. If there are no permission fields or if there are too many entries, these data will be corrected in the proposal values.
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
The panel menus also simplify the maintenance of permissions to the audit structures.
