For an authorization concept, a clear goal must first be defined that is to be achieved with the help of the concept. This should list which regulatory requirements the respective SAP system must fulfill and the associated authorization concept must take into account. In this way, the legal framework conditions are defined. In addition, uniform naming conventions should be used because, on the one hand, many things cannot be changed after the initial naming and, on the other hand, this ensures searchability in the SAP system. Clearly defined responsibilities ensure the effectiveness of a concept. Specific persons must be named or at least roles defined in a separate section. A chapter should be dedicated to the process for user management. Here, it must be described how users obtain existing SAP authorizations, how new users are integrated into the SAP system, and who is responsible for approving authorizations. The chapter on the process for authorization management defines who is allowed to create and edit which roles and who is responsible for the development of various related processes. The chapter on special authorizations describes processes and special features in the area of non-dialog operations. These include job management and interface convention. Other administrative authorizations can also be described. The chapter on role concept explains how business requirements are transferred to a technical role. The role concept takes on a special significance, since it describes the actual mapping of business roles to the technical roles and thus to the authorizations in SAP.

In our example, the end user logs on to an SCM system, but can also call ERP transactions from here. To have these ERP transactions available in SAP SCM, create a new PFCGE role in SAP SCM, e.g. ZS:XXXX:ERP_MENU. The ERP transactions that the user should have access to are added to the roles menu by selecting Apply Menus > From Other Role > Destination System. Now select the appropriate ERP system and then select the appropriate PFCG role from SAP ERP. You do not need a profile for this "menu role" because this role only includes the ERP menu. You can now sort the transactions in the Hierarchy pane by using drag and drop or by using the arrow keys as you need them in the NWBC.

You can view the contents of the checked permission fields by double-clicking on the respective variables. The Variables 1 tab displays the variables with the respective values used for this eligibility check. These values correspond to the values that you also see in the System Trace for Permissions. If a permission check ends with SY-SUBRC = 0 when no appropriate permissions are available, verify that the check is turned off locally via the SU24 or globally through the SU25 or AUTH_SWITCH_OBJECTS transactions.

You can adjust these evaluation methods in the table T77AW or in the transaction OOAW. To do this, select the respective evaluation path by selecting it, and click on the evaluation path (individual maintenance) in the menu on the left. The table that appears defines the relationships between the objects. For SAP CRM only the objects Organisational Unit (O), Headquarters (S), Central Person (CP) and User (US) play a role. For simplicity, you can now copy the lines that use the Person (P) object. Enter a new number here and replace the object P with the object CP.

However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".

These constraints cannot be changed by the settings of the customising switch ADD_S_RFCACL in the table PRGN_CUST.
