Translating texts into permission roles
Concept for in-house developments
Incorrect use of the user types and password rules can result in the shutdown of the RFC interfaces. Find out what types of users you can use and how the password rules affect these types of users. In the SAP system, you can choose between different user types when creating users. These user types control the login behaviour and also the impact of password rules on the user. This can lead to undesirable behaviour, especially if the parameter for the validity of the initial password is set. It is often not known that the password rules also apply to users of the communication type. Communication users usually use an initial password because a dialogue is not possible and the password is not changed. If parameters for the validity of the initial password are now also introduced, these also apply to communication users. We will show you how to prevent such problems and give you an overview of the types of users and the impact of the password rules.
Customising roles are temporary because of their project nature. Therefore, when assigning users, maintain the end date. You cannot also map transactions manually if you created a role directly from a project or project view. Conversely, you cannot use an existing transaction role in the menu as a customising role. The transactions associated with a customising role are not displayed in the Session Manager or the SAP Easy Access menu, but can only be viewed through the view in the customising.
SAP Data Analytics
Which authorization data does a role have (PFCG)? Again, start the transaction PFCG and display a role. Then branch to the tab Authorizations and click on the button with the "glasses" (bottom left): Display authorization data.
Despite progressive use of web interfaces in the S/4HANA context, batch processing for mass data is still required. However, our experience from customer projects shows that only very few authorization administrators know how to correctly authorize the scenarios. SAP OSS Note 101146 provides a good overview here. In this blog post, we would like to summarize the context for practical use.
Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".
Transport Recording for Modified Roles: Allows you to have the changed roles written to a transport order.
Suitable for this responsible task are, for example, department heads or SAP key users who are familiar with all data access options (cross-module, via report, directly to the raw table, etc.) as well as with the organizational and technical protection measures.
