Use SU22 and SU24 transactions correctly
Authorization concepts in SAP systems
If your user is assigned the privilege ROLE ADMIN (either directly or through a role), you can create your own roles and assign them to users. You can do this by drawing on existing privileges and roles. The privileges themselves are provided by developers with appropriate permissions to create applications, including the privileges they require. Often, as the permission administrator, you do not have the privilege to create privileges. This is also useful because only the application developer can decide what properties the privileges of using the objects in the application should have. The application developer also decides whether his application provides appropriate roles in addition to privileges.

You will be aware that you do not necessarily have to move in the Customer Name Room when assigning names of PFCG roles and therefore have a lot of freedom. The only limitation here is that you may not use the namespace of the roles that are interpreted by SAP. First, you must agree on the form of the names. A fundamental decision is to define the language in which the PFCG roles must be maintained. Although this does not necessarily have an influence on the role name, since it is the same in all languages, you will certainly have descriptive elements in your role name. The role description and the long text are also depending on the language. It is therefore useful to start the roles in the language which is also used most frequently, and also to cultivate the descriptive texts first in this language. If roles are required in different languages, you can translate the texts.
Maintain proposed values using trace evaluations
The authorization objects are attached by analogy to the forecast and item-based reports. 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. There is a trick in maintaining the CO-PA-specific authorization objects, because a once selected result area is set for the entire session of your login. This is of course hindering the maintenance of authorization objects for different result areas. Therefore, simply change the result area in the Customising window using the following path: Controlling > Income and market segment accounting > Structures > Set result area.

Suggested values are maintained in the transaction SU24 and delivered through the transaction SU22. Read more about the differences between these two transactions. Maintaining suggestion values via the SU24 transaction is useful if you want to reflect your own requirements or if the values provided by SAP do not meet customer requirements (see Tip 37, "Making sense in maintaining suggestion values"). These proposed values form the basis for the role maintenance credentials in the PFCG transaction. As you know, the suggested values provided by SAP are in the transaction SU22, which are delivered during reinstallation or upgrades as well as in support packages or SAP hints. What is the difference between transactions and how are they used correctly?

However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".

Finally, it goes through all the rolls that contain a shape to the field.
