BASICS FOR USING SAP REPORTS
Rebuilding the authorization concept
It must be clarified in advance what constitutes a recognized "emergency" in the first place and which scenarios do not yet justify activating the highly privileged user. In addition, it may only be approved and activated after a justified request and only under the dual control principle. After use, it must be administratively blocked again immediately.
To do this, first define what information should be checked. In the SU20 transaction, verify that the required fields may already exist as permission fields. If you want to check custom fields, you must create your own permission fields in the transaction SU20. Please pay particular attention to the (F4) help provided. When defining customised permission fields, you assign a name in the Field Name field that is in your Customer Name Room and assign the corresponding data element and, if desired, a table name for a value help. The next step is to create your own authorization object and assign your permission fields and, if necessary, default permission fields. If you use the ACTVT field to validate the activity, you must use the Activities allowed button to select the activities that you want to validate from the source code of your programme. For recommendations on the naming conventions for authorization objects, see SAP Note 395083.
Take advantage of roll transport feature improvements
The AIS cockpit is currently in pilot delivery without SAP default audit structures. Once these are available, they are listed in SAP Note 1856125. Prior to the re-conversion of the AIS to thematic audit structures, the AIS standard roles of the role-based care environment were copied into the customer name space and assigned to the users. You can also use the AIS default roles as a template for custom area menus.
Careful maintenance of suggestion values in the relevant authorization objects results in recurring benefits in creating and revising roles for Web applications. In addition, the SU25 transaction supports role post-processing in the context of SAPUpgrades.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
Check the compatibility of your systems before setting the login/password_downwards_ compatibility profile parameter.
The same applies to the Organisation Management buffer if you use indirect role mapping.
