Mitigating GRC risks for SAP systems
The security of an SAP system is not only dependent on securing the production system. The development systems should also be considered, since here it is possible to influence the productive system via changes to be transported in the development environment and in customizing or via inadequately configured interfaces. Depending on the conceptual granularity of responsibilities in the development and customizing environment, more detailed authorization checks may need to be performed.
Since SAP NetWeaver 7.02, such a feature is available, which means that you can access the data from the system trace to maintain PFCG roles. In the following we show you how you can apply the permission values from the permission trace to your role. To do this, you must first record applications against their permission checks and then add them to your role menu.
Best Practices Benefit from PFCG Roles Naming Conventions
Permissions must be maintained in every SAP system - a task that becomes more difficult the more complex the system landscapes and the greater the number of users. Especially in growing system landscapes, once defined concepts no longer fit the current requirements or the processes in role and authorisation management become more and more complex and cumbersome over time.
When accessing tables or views, the S_TABU_DIS authorization object is used to grant permission for a specific table permission group in the permission check. Note in this context also Tip 73 "Use authorization objects for table editing" and the S_TABU_NAM authorization object presented there. You can create table permission groups by using the transaction SE54 or by using the V_TBRG_54 care dialogue. They fall under the customising and can only contain four characters until SAP NetWeaver 7.31 SP 2. To create a table permission group, call the SE54 transaction and select Permissions Groups in the Edit Table/View pane. The Create/Modify button provides an overview of the existing table permission groups. For example, this way you can also change the name of a table permission group. In the Table Rights Group overview, click the New Entries button to create a new table permissions group. Give a name for your permission group and a matching name. After you have saved the new entries, your custom table permission group is created.
If you get into the situation that authorizations are required that were not considered in the role concept, "Shortcut for SAP systems" allows you to assign the complete authorization for the respective authorization object.
The authorization objects of the item-based reports are checked in addition to the authorization objects for the information system when the report is selected.
Now you are looking for an easy way to delete role assignments that have expired or to remove multiple role assignments.
