Customising User and Permissions Management
Compensating measures for segregation of duties conflicts
In addition to these requirements, other settings can ensure that the transaction can be performed without verification: Verification of eligibility objects is disabled by check marks (in transaction SU24). This is not possible for SAP NetWeaver and SAP ERP HCM authorization objects, i.e. it does not apply to S_TCODE checking. The checks for specific authorization objects can be globally off for all transactions (in transaction SU24 or SU25). This is only possible if the profile parameter AUTH/NO_CHECK_IN_SOME_CASES is Y. In addition, executable transactions may also result from the assignment of a reference user; the reference user's executable transactions are also taken into account.

Protect your system from unauthorised calls to RFC function blocks from the S_RFC authorization object by obtaining the necessary permissions using the statistical usage data. In many organisations, the primary focus in the permission environment is on protecting dialogue access. For each required transaction, you decide in detail which groups of people are allowed access. It is often overlooked that the critical S_RFC privilege object requires an analogue permission assignment. If the RFC (Remote Function Call) external access permissions are unneatly defined and assigned to the users, the S_TCODE authorization object quickly bypasses the primary protection for bootable applications.
Maintain transaction start permissions on call CALL TRANSACTION
The object S_PROGRAM checks since SAP Release 2.x for the field TRDIR-SECU i.e. the authorization group of the program. As of Release 7.40, you can optionally switch on a check for the object S_PROGNAM. For more information, see note 2272827 for further instructions. The check on S_PROGNAM MUST first be activated in the customer system. Note, however, that they CORRECTLY authorize S_PROGNAM before doing so, otherwise NOBODY except emergency users will be able to start any report or report transaction after the SACF scenario is activated.

Any deviation from the defined process must be fully documented and justified. This is because it is precisely deviations from the standard case that are of great interest to an auditor, as the auditor must determine whether a deviation could have an impact on the correctness of the data.

Assigning a role for a limited period of time is done in seconds with "Shortcut for SAP systems" and allows you to quickly continue your go-live.

If no verification takes place in the invoked programme, it must be installed in the calling programme by adding additional features for the eligibility check.

If the change documents are to be read for the attached subsidiary systems, the subsidiary systems must also be at the release and support package status specified in SAP Note 1902038.
