User Information System SUIM
Authorization tools are a great help in designing a highly automated compliance management system that precisely fits the company's own requirements. The introduction of authorization tools takes some time, but should nevertheless be tackled by companies in order to increase efficiency in the long term and save costs at the same time.
Before you can start upgrading the suggestion values and roles, you need to consider a few things. SAP Note 1539556 lists all questions and answers about the administration of proposed values. Already at the start of the transaction SU25 you will be alerted in a pop-up window to the SAP notice 440231 (upgrade preparation for the profile generator). This note provides information on recommended revisions for certain SAP base versions and recommendations for additional guidance, which are listed in the Annexe.
Permissions and User Root Sets Evaluations
Until now, there were no ways to define different password rules or password change requirements for these users. Today, this is possible with the security guidelines that you assign to users and clients. In the following we will show you how to define security policies and how they work.
Do you need to integrate the S_TABU_NAM authorization object into your existing permission concept? In this tip, we show you the steps that are necessary to do this - from maintaining the suggestion values to an overview of the eligible tables. You have added the S_TABU_NAM authorization object to your permission concept, so that users can access the tables not only through the S_TABU_DIS authorization object, but also through S_TABU_NAM. This directly regulates access to the tables via table permission groups or, if access is not allowed through table permission groups, via the table permission (see Tip 73, "Use table editing authorization objects"). Do you want to identify the tables or created parameter transactions that allow access to only specific tables to maintain SU24 for these suggested values in the transaction? This makes it easier to maintain PFCG roles. Furthermore, a tool would be useful to give you an overview of the tables for which a user is entitled.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
When you create roles that are only intended for specific systems, such as the development system, it makes sense to include this information in the role name.
