Check and refresh the permission buffer
Architecture of authorization concepts
Finally, we want to give you some recommendations for securing file access. The SPTH table allows you to protect the file system from ABAP programme accesses without granting permissions and to deliberately define exceptions. The problem is identifying the necessary exceptions. However, because the SPTH check is always performed together with the S_DATASET object check, you can use a long-running permission trace to find the paths that are used with filters for the S_DATASET authorization object. The procedure for this is described in detail in our Tip 39, "Maintain suggestion values by using trace evaluations". If you are using applications that access files in the DIR_HOME directory without a path, such as the ST11 transaction, you must specify access to the allowed file groups individually (e.g. dev_, gw_), because there is no wild card for DIR_HOME.
In line with the maintenance of the SAP transaction permissions proposal values using the SU22 and SU24 transactions, it is advisable to maintain proposed values for web applications. In order for a user to be assigned a suitable rating for an operational feature set in the Web application, the software developers in the transaction SU22 must connect all the authorization objects required for this application to the corresponding Web Dynpro application, i.e. not just S_START. The source of the required authorization objects is usually a developer or permission trace.
Query Data from Active Directory
As a role developer, you can now select the specific application in the PFCG transaction from the list of web dynpro applications published by the software developers on the Menu tab and enter it in the Role menu. To generate the role profile, switch to the Permissions tab. There you can check the concrete value expressions of the S_START permission fields and, if necessary, the additional relevant authorization objects for this Web application and supplement them if necessary. Finally, you must generate the role profile as usual.
Because certain types of permissions, such as analysis permissions, for SAP BW, or structural permissions in SAP ERP HCM are not based on SAP permission profiles, these permissions are not displayed or refreshed in the permission buffer. To analyse such eligibility issues, you must therefore use the appropriate tools, such as the HRAUTH transaction for SAP ERP HCM or the RSECADMIN transaction for SAP BW. The same applies to the Organisation Management buffer if you use indirect role mapping. Run the RHWFINDEXRESET report to reset the Organisation Management buffer. A prerequisite for the user buffer to be up-to-date is the correct user matching (green instead of yellow statusabilds on the Users tab).
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.
This type of user is also dialogical, i.e. it can log on to the SAP system via SAP GUI.
If the SAPHinkling 1307693 is not installed on a subsidiary system, or the RFC user's permissions have not been adjusted accordingly, the RSUSR_SYSINFO_LICENSE report in the application log (transaction SLG1) will issue a warning.
