The SAP authorization concept
Assigning clear authorizations to employees is not a sign of mistrust, but offers a high level of protection - both for the company and for the employees themselves. By assigning SAP authorizations on a role-specific basis, each employee is given access to the system according to his or her task.
Organisation levels ensure more efficient maintenance of the eligibility roles. You maintain them once in the transaction PFCG via the button Origen. The values for each entry in this field are entered in the permissions of the role. This means that you can only enter the same values for the organisation level field within a role. If you change the values of the individual fields in the authorization objects independently of the overarching care, you will receive a warning message that you will no longer be able to change this field by clicking the Ormits button and that this individual value will be overwritten when you adjust derived roles. Therefore, we strongly advise you not to carry out individual maintenance of the organisation level fields. If you adhere to this advice, as described above, there can always be only one value range for an organisation level field. For example, the combination of displaying all posting circuits and changing a single posting circle within a role cannot be implemented. Of course, this has implications if you want to upgrade a field to the organisation level. A field that has not previously served as an organisational level can include such entries with different values within a role. You must clean up these entries before you declare a field as an organisation level. In addition, the definition of a field as an organisational level also affects the proposed permissions values of the profile generator.
Assign SAP_NEW to Test
When configuring the Security Audit Log, you must consider the storage of the files. At least one separate file is created for each day. When the maximum size of all files for the tag is reached, additional events are stopped. So you should always adjust the maximum size of the file to your needs using the parameters rsau/max_diskspace/per_file and rsau/max_diskspace/per_day. The rsau/max_diskspace/local parameter is obsolete in this case, but remains active if the other two parameters are not maintained.
The Security Audit Log (SAL) has ten different filters in the current releases, which control which events are logged. You can configure these filters via the SM19 transaction. The events are categorised as uncritical, serious or critical.
Secure your go-live additionally with "Shortcut for SAP systems". You can assign necessary SAP authorizations quickly and easily directly in the system.
You should then delete the hash values of the user passwords as described above.
