Bypass Excel-based Permissions Traps
In-house role maintenance
With more than 28 users, the simple Copy & Paste in the user selection no longer works. However, this does not mean that you have to care for all users individually! It is common for you to make mass changes to users in the SAP system, such as changing role assignments, locking a group of users, or having to adjust their validity dates. Unfortunately, there is no button in the start image of the transaction SU10 that allows users to be pasted from the clipboard. While Copy & Paste allows you to insert users from the clipboard, this feature is limited to the visible area. Therefore, it is not possible to add a list of more than 28 users, which can be very difficult for long lists.
For result and market segment accounting, you can define planning authorization objects, the information system, and item-based reports of the information system. In the customising (transaction SPRO), you create them via the following path and then select the corresponding section. Controlling > Income and market segment calculation > Tools > Permissions management > CO-PA specific eligibility objects.
SAP Authorizations - Overview HCM Authorization Concepts
This function was not part of the standard delivery. With the support package named in SAP Note 1860162, the transaction SAIS_SEARCH_APPL is now delivered. This transaction allows you to verify that other applications have startup properties similar to those available in a particular application. For example, we searched for applications with similar functionality as the PPOME transaction provides.
If you no longer need old audit results, you can archive or delete them with the transaction SAIS via the button (Administration of the Audit Environment). The audit results shall be selected on the basis of the audit structures, the test numbers or the entry date (see figure next page).
The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
At this point, you must complete the implementation, depending on your requirements.
In addition, certain special characters may cause problems in other applications (e.g. in transport management).
