DDIC: DDIC is the only user able to log in or make changes to the ABAP Dictionary during installations and release changes. It is also used in the client 000, e.g. for certain jobs or Unicode conversions. DDIC exists in all clients except 066. Safeguard measures: In all systems (except for client 000 due to upgrade features), set DDIC to the System user type. If necessary, you can switch it back to a dialogue user using the Emergency User. Change the password, assign the user to the SUPER user group, and log it with the Security Audit Log.
The next step is to evaluate the usage data; here the monthly aggregates are typically sufficient. These include the user ID, function block, and number of calls. For an overview of the usage data already stored in the system, see the SWNC_COLLECTOR_GET_DIRECTORY function block (GET_DIR_FROM_CLUSTER = X input parameter). The actual downloading of the usage data is then performed using the function block SWNC_COLLECTOR_GET_AGGREGATES.
The SAP administrator uses the concept to assign users their dedicated authorizations. Behind these is a checking mechanism based on so-called authorization objects, by which the objects or transactions are protected. An authorization object can comprise up to ten authorization fields. This allows complex authorization checks that are bound to several conditions.
Many companies do not pay enough attention to the topic of authorizations in SAP SuccessFactors. It often seems too complex and confusing. Both the creation of a concept and the harmonization of existing structures often seem like a mammoth task. However, with role-based authorizations, SAP provides a very powerful control tool that remains clear with a little help and documentation.
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.
You have already created roles for SAP CRM and would like to add additional external services? Nothing easier than that! Create PFCG roles for the SAP CRM Web Client, typically so that you complete the customising of the CRM business role before creating the PFCG role, based on this customising.
