User master data
Structural authorizations work with SAP HCM Organizational Management and define who can be seen, but not what can be seen. This is done based on evaluation paths in the org tree. Structural authorizations should therefore only be used together with general authorizations. Just like the general authorizations in SAP ECC HR, they enable regulated access to data in time-dependent structures. An authorization profile is used to determine the authorization. In addition, it is defined how the search is carried out on the org tree.
EARLYWATCH: The user EARLYWATCH only exists in the client 066, because it serves the remote maintenance by the SAP support. EARLYWATCH only has display rights for performance and monitoring functions. Safeguard measures: Lock down the user EARLYWATCH and only unlock it when requested by SAP Support. Change the password, assign it to the SUPER user group, and log it with the Security Audit Log.
SAP systems: Control user authorizations with a concept
The chapter on authorization recertification should also be defined in the authorization concept, which is documented in writing. This refers to a regular review of the assigned authorizations in the SAP® system, to be performed at least once a year. In the course of this process, the responsible departments should review the assignment of the respective roles to users in their area and critically scrutinize it once again. This process ultimately ensures that users only have the authorizations in the SAP® system that they actually need. It must therefore be defined in which time period and in which form the departments must receive the information about the assigned authorizations and report back regarding the correctness of the assignment. During preparation, it is therefore necessary to check whether the process has been carried out in accordance with the internal specifications, but also in accordance with possible suggestions for optimization made by the auditor, and whether all the evidence is stored ready to hand for the auditor.
Setting the confidentiality or encryption markers in the SEND_EMAIL_FOR_USER method affects the display of the e-mail in Business Communication Services Administration (transaction SCOT). If the email is marked as confidential, it can only be viewed by the sender or the creator of the email. The sender and the creator need not necessarily be identical, for example, if you have entered the system as the sender. The e-mail creator is the one who ran the application in the context of which the e-mail was created. The encryption flag also automatically sets the confidentiality of the email. The e-mail is not stored in the system in encrypted form, but is protected against unauthorised access by the confidentiality flag. However, access by the sender or creator is still possible. You should also note that the subject of the email is not encrypted.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
For this reason, tools for technical analysis must be used regularly to provide the status quo of authorization assignment and thus the basis for optimization.
It is recommended to take into account the period since the last login in the Days since last login field and the password status in the Days since password change field.
