Optimise trace analysis
THE "TOP SEVEN"
Authorization trace - Transaction: STUSOBTRACE - Transaction STUSOBTRACE is used to evaluate the authorization trace in the SAP system. This is a trace that collects authorization data over a longer period of time in several clients and user-independently and stores it in a database (table USOB_AUTHVALTRC).
The report PRGN_COMPRESS_TIMES provides a remedy. You can call it directly or in the edit mode of a PFCG role in the PFCG transaction via Tools > Optimise User Mapping.
Bypass Excel-based Permissions Traps
After creating a authorization object, you should do the following: Make the permission check implementation at a convenient location in your code. Maintain the proposed values for the application in the transaction SU24. Re-load the role in the PFCG transaction if the application has already been rolled. If it is a new application, adjust the roles by including the new application in the Role menu, and then maintaining the permissions of the authorization objects loaded into the role by the suggestion values.
A temporary shutdown of Central User Management is usually not recommended. However, in certain cases it may be necessary. We will show you what pre- and post-processing is required to avoid data inconsistencies. In complex SAP landscapes where the Central User Administration (ZBV) is used, there may be cases where you want to temporarily remove a subsidiary system from the ZBV without having to delete this system or shut down the entire ZBV, for example if you want to create users in a subsidiary system at short notice.
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
With the knowledge of the favourites, you can therefore avoid gaps in your authorisation concept.
In addition, with the permission proposal value maintenance, you can make sure that the new authorization object is not forgotten in a role system, because it is now loaded automatically into the PFCG role when the application is called up via the role menu.
