Controlling permissions for the SAP NetWeaver Business Client
User Information System SUIM
A new transaction has been added to evaluate the system trace only for permission checks, which you can call STAUTHTRACE using the transaction and insert via the respective support package named in SAP Note 1603756. This is a short-term trace that can only be used as a permission trace on the current application server and clients. In the basic functions, it is identical to the system trace in transaction ST01; Unlike the system trace, however, only permission checks can be recorded and evaluated here. You can limit the recording to a specific user. You can also use the trace to search only for permission errors. The evaluation is similar to the evaluation of the system trace in the transaction ST01. In transaction STAUTHTRACE, however, you can also evaluate for specific authorization objects or for specific permission check return codes (i.e. after positive or negative permission checks). You can also filter multiple entries.
You can now assign transactions to these roles. Experience has shown that roles should remain application-specific and that a distinction between book or investing, changing and reading roles is also useful. There will be regular transactions used in multiple roles. You should not overestimate the often demanded freedom of redundancy. However, for critical transactions or transactions that are involved in a functional separation conflict, it is recommended that they be kept in a separate role. In general, roles should not contain too many transactions; Smaller roles are easier to maintain and easier to derive. Also, assigning them does not quickly lead to the problem that users have too many permissions. If you keep the necessary functional separations in place, you have already prepared them as a takeaway.
Identify the personnel master record associated with the user ID that you are creating in the SU01 transaction. To do this, search within the personnel data for a personnel number that entered this user ID in the System User Name SAP System (0001) subtype of the Communication (0105) info type. Subsequently, fill in the fields of transaction SU01 with the data from the personnel master record.
When creating the PFCG individual roles in the respective SAP system, you should create the menu structure so that they can be combined with other individual roles in a single role. Once you have created the individual roles with the correct role menu, you can assign them to a collection role. Add the Role Menu to the Collect Roll using the Read Menu button. The menu can now be finally sorted. If changes to the roll menu are necessary, however, you must first make them in the individual rolls and then remix them in the roll roll (using the Mix button, see figure next page above). Transactions from other SAP systems such as SAP CRM, SAP SCM etc. can also be integrated into the NWBC. To do this, you first create the PFCG role for the relevant transactions in the target system. From the individual roles you can create collection roles with a defined menu structure.
However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".
If you want to check custom fields, you must create your own permission fields in the transaction SU20.
You can use the SAP NEW Data button to mark whether this authorization object is relevant to an SAP New role of a particular release.
