Detect critical base permissions that should not be in application roles
Extend permission checks for documents in FI
After all authorizations are maintained, the role must be saved and generated and a user comparison must be performed. However, this should not be a topic here in the article. This can also be done with the transaction PFUD (see comments to the article "SAP BC: Empty user buffer" :-).
In SAP systems, authorization structures grow over the years. If, for example, there is a restructuring in the company or there are new organizations, there is a risk that the authorization concept no longer fits or is implemented correctly.

If you only want to translate the description of the role, it is recommended to record the PFCG transaction and to change the source language of the role using the Z_ROLE_SET_MASTERLANG report before the LSMW script runs through. The report on how to change the source language can be found in SAP Note 854311. Similarly, you can use the SECATT (Extended Computer Aided Test Tool, eCATT) transaction to perform the translation instead of the LSMW transaction. Furthermore, automation is possible with the help of a customer-specific ABAP programme. To do this, you should take a closer look at the AGR_TEXTS table. The table contains the different text blocks in different languages. Here we show you a section of the table with our example role Z_SE63. Short texts are assigned a value of 00000 in the column LINE, and long texts are assigned a value of 00001 to 0000x. The language keys are displayed in the SPRAS column. An ABAP programme now allows you to write the counterparts for the text fields in the target language into the fields in the tables.
If you now want to assign PFCG roles indirectly to users via the organisation management, you have to use evaluation methods. Evaluation paths define a chain of relationships between objects within a hierarchy. For example, they define how an organisational unit or a post can be assigned to another organisational unit. This relationship is set to the User ID. However, if the business partner has also been maintained in organisational management, there is no standard evaluation path for this case and the user assigned to the role is not found. However, since in SAP CRM the user IDs are not directly assigned to a post, but via the business partner, you have to make adjustments to the evaluation paths before you can assign the roles indirectly.
For the assignment of existing roles, regular authorization workflows require a certain minimum of turnaround time, and not every approver is available at every go-live. With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you have options to assign urgently needed authorizations anyway and to additionally secure your go-live.
When configuring the Security Audit Log, you must consider the storage of the files.
