User administration (transaction SU01)
The proposed values in the SU24 transaction are an imperative for the maintenance of PFCG roles, as these values are used when creating PFCG roles. The better these values are maintained, the less effort is required to maintain the PFCG roles (see figure next page). You may ask yourself in which cases it makes sense to adjust the proposed values, since they have such a large impact on the maintenance of roles.
The RESPAREA field has a maintenance dialogue that allows you to enter areas of responsibility. The care dialogue is called as a building block and provides different tabs for input depending on the authorization object. Now, if you declare the RESPAREA field to be the organisation level, you must first set the display of the tabs for input in customising. To do this, you must add an entry to the KBEROBJ table that is independent of the client by using the SE16 transaction. In this entry, leave the first OBJECT field blank. The CURRENTOBJ field must be maintained because it defines the tab that will be displayed when the maintenance is called, i.e. the Default tab. If this field is blank, no startup image can be found and errors occur. The following fields determine the contents of the various tabs and should therefore also be maintained so that you can use RESPAREA as an organisational level. These are the OBJECT1 to OBJECT7 fields for the first to the seventh tab. In these seven fields, you define what values you can enter on the tabs.
Identify Executable Transaction Codes
Now the SAP system is basically able to encrypt emails. However, the system still lacks the recipient's public key. You can manage the required public key information in the Trust Manager's address book. You can find the address book in the Transaction STRUST menu under Certificate > Address Book. Here you can import individual certificates by selecting the corresponding certificate in Certificate > Import Certificate. To get the certificates for all relevant users in this address book via a mass import, use the example programme Z_IMPORT_CERTIFICATES appended in SAP Note 1750161 as a template for a custom programme.
Authorization tools are only as good as the person using them. Until now, no tool has made it possible to create ready-made authorization concepts with just a single click.
During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.
The article "SAP Basis Basic or finding missing authorizations thanks to SU53 or ST01 Trace" describes this in more detail.
Another danger is that users will experiment with their authorizations and cause damage that can be avoided by having a clean authorization structure.
