Perform Risk Analysis with the Critical Permissions Report
Important components in the authorization concept
The SAP_NEW profile is basically designed to bridge the release differences in eligibility checks after an upgrade and ensure that the established business processes remain executable after an upgrade. The SAP_NEW permission should only be assigned temporarily and only in emergencies in a productive SAP system after an upgrade.
Authorizations are the main controlling instrument for mapping risk management and compliance. They are used to control all processes in the systems. For the most part, separation of functions is implemented exclusively with authorizations. Therefore, not only the one-time setup of authorizations is relevant, but also the continuous monitoring and control of the authorization assignment. Various tools are available on the market for this purpose. A re-certification process that involves the departments and optimizes the revalidation of authorizations is helpful.
Lack of definition of an internal control system (ICS)
Starting with SAP NetWeaver 7.31, the Security Audit Log enables the complete display of longer event parameters in messages. To do this, the maximum storage space for variables in messages has been increased to 2 GB. To play this extension, you need a kernel patch. For the fixes and an overview of the required support packages, see SAP Note 1819317.
You must set up a message class for later use. To do this, you will be prompted automatically when the transaction GGB0 is first called. If some relevant fields of the complete document are hidden, i.e. not available, please refer to the instructions in the SAPHinweis 413956. Set up validation in the GGB0 transaction (such as GALILEO) and determine the steps of validation. In the validation process, copy the RGGBR000 programme into your Customer Name Room, replacing the last three characters with the number of the client in which the validation will be performed. Then assign your new customer-owned programme with the GCX2 transaction to the GBLR user exit control workspace. This assignment has created the prerequisite for client-dependent user exits. If you want to set up a client-independent user exit, do the same, but use the transaction GCX1.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
In such a case, you naturally want to exclude invalid users and those with administrator lock from the selection.
