Maintain generated profile names in complex system landscapes
Automatically pre-document user master data
Permissions profiles are transported in the standard (since release 4.6C) with the roles. If you do not want to do this, you have to stop the data export in the source system by the control entry PROFILE_TRANSPORT = NO. The profiles must then be created by mass generation before the user logs are matched in the target system. This can be done via transaction SUPC.
Tax reporting: The tax reporting system in SAP is based on the accounting area. The Profit Centre is not intended as a reporting unit here.
In order to be able to act fully at all times in emergency situations, an SAP emergency user must be available who has all authorizations for the entire SAP system (typically by means of the composite profile SAP_ALL). However, this not only makes him a great help, but also extremely dangerous, so that his use must be precisely regulated via a dedicated concept.
To create a authorization object, you must first select the result area and the form of the result invoice, whether calculating or accounting, for which you want to validate the authorization object. To do this, you must enter the name of the authorization object to be created and click the button (Next). You then set a text for the authorization object and select a maximum of ten permission fields for the object using the Fields button. Only a selection of the characteristics defined for the result area - and for the calculation of the result account also the value fields - is possible. You can now create different authorization objects for the key numbers and characteristics, or you can group the relevant fields into a authorization object. We advise you to define only one object with all relevant fields, as this will facilitate the maintenance of permissions. In our example, we created an accounting authorization object for the characteristics of the profit centre, distribution channel and work in the information system.
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.
Access to system tables should therefore be restricted to basic administration if possible.
