Authorization concepts - advantages and architecture
In the beginning, the FI and CO modules were separated from each other. Both modules have been combined by SAP as higher-level modules in the accounting area. The main reason for this is the tight process structure, which enables a smooth transition between the two modules. As a result, SAP FI and CO now only appear as the joint module SAP FICO.
You can also evaluate the application log through the SLG1 (ATAX object) transaction; the output of the report CA_TAXLOG seems more useful here. Finally, we have some important information for you: There are individual programmes that can be used read-only, but also offer options for updates to the database. In these cases, additional logic was implemented (e.g. in SAP Note 925217 to the RFUMSV00 programme for the sales tax pre-reporting). Action log data can be accessed via the transaction SLG2 (Object: ATAX) (see also SAP Note 530733). If you want to customise for the annual permissions directly in the production system (so-called "current setting"), the SAP Note 782707 describes how to do this. Basic information about Current Settings is provided in SAP Notes 135028 and 356483. SAP Note 788313 describes in detail the functional components of the time-space test and the additional logging and also serves as a "cookbook" to use in customer-specific developments. How you can prevent access to the SAP menu and only show the user menu to the user, we described in Tip 47, "Customising User and Permissions Management".
Assignment of roles
Over the course of time, many companies experience profound changes in the framework conditions that significantly influence SAP® authorization management. Not uncommon are subsequent requirements from the area of compliance (SOX or similar) or the increased need for protection.
SAPconnect uses the S/MIME (Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) standard for signing when sending emails or for verifying and decrypting received emails. S/MIME is supported by most email clients and requires X.509-based certificates.
Secure your go-live additionally with "Shortcut for SAP systems". You can assign necessary SAP authorizations quickly and easily directly in the system.

The SAP HANA Studio shows you in the administration interface which user (the so-called grantor) has assigned the respective privilege to this role (granted).
