Optimization of SAP licenses by analyzing the activities of your SAP users
SAP authorizations are not exclusively an operational issue - they are also essential for risk management and compliance and represent one of the key audit topics for internal auditing and auditors.

However, as I said, there is a risk that too many external services will be deleted and cross-navigation or calling the saved searches will no longer work. It is better to move the GENERIC_OP_LINKS folder to a separate role.
