System trace function ST01
Authorization tools - advantages and limitations
Due to the changed suggestion values in the SU24 transaction, you must now perform step 2c (roles to verify) to update all roles affected by the changed proposal values. Role changes are only customised! You will get a list that shows all the roles you need to edit. If you have more than one client to maintain roles, you must also do this in the other client.
A new transaction has been added to evaluate the system trace only for permission checks, which you can call STAUTHTRACE using the transaction and insert via the respective support package named in SAP Note 1603756. This is a short-term trace that can only be used as a permission trace on the current application server and clients. In the basic functions, it is identical to the system trace in transaction ST01; Unlike the system trace, however, only permission checks can be recorded and evaluated here.

SAPCPIC: SAPCPIC is not a dialogue user, but is used for EDI usage in older releases (EDI = Electronic Data Interchange); in default, SAPCPIC has permissions for RFC access. However, you should not use this user for them, nor for batch processes, but you must create other users for these applications. Safeguard measures: Lock down the user, change the password, assign it to the SUPER user group and log it with the Security Audit Log.
To define table permissions in the PFCG transaction, it is not necessarily sufficient to specify the generic table display tools, such as the SE16 or SM30 transactions, in the role menu. The proposed values for these transactions are very general and only provide for the use of the S_TABU_DIS or S_TABU_CLI authorization objects. Explicit values must be entered depending on the tables that you have selected for permission. To explicitly grant access to the tables through the S_TABU_NAM authorization object, you can create a parameter transaction for each table access. For example, a parameter transaction allows you to call tables through the SE16 transaction without having to specify the table name in the selection screen because it is skipped. You can then maintain suggestion values for the parameter transaction you created.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
Logs: Protocols exist for all audits performed.
In addition, you must activate the Security Audit Log via the profile parameters in the transaction RZ11 and make technical settings.
