Extend permission checks for documents in FI
Get an overview of the organisations and their dependencies maintained in the system
Now the structure must be filled "with life". To do this, you must first create meaningful subfolders in the customer's own structure. As already mentioned, these are mostly based on the SAP modules. Make sure that you also set your customising for additional add-ons, so that later the work of support organisations is easier. Call the transaction SOBJ. There, you create customising objects that will later be reused in your IMG structure. It is useful to name the object exactly as the corresponding table. This simplifies the later maintenance in the IMG structure. Here you also decide whether and how the tables can possibly be maintained in the productive system. To do this, select the appropriate entries in the Category and Transport fields and check the Current setting option. Repeat this for all custom customising tables that are still needed.

Create a report transaction for the report that is called in the background job. Set up the report transaction in the transaction SE93 and assign the report RHAUTUPD_NEW as a programme. Start the authorisation trace by setting the auth/ authorisation_trace profile parameter to Y or F if you want to work with filters (see tip 38, "Use the SU22 and SU24 transactions correctly"). Now run the job to collect permission checks on the permission trace. Your permission checks should now be visible in the STUSOBTRACE transaction. Now maintain the permission proposal values for your report transaction in transaction SU24 by entering the transaction code in the appropriate field. You will find that no values are maintained. Now switch to Change Mode. You can add your permission suggestions from the trace using the Object > Insert objects from Permissions Trace > Local (see Tip 40, "Use Permission Trace to Determine Suggest Values for Custom Developments"). Add the suggestion values for each displayed authorization object. Now create a PFCG role that includes the report transaction permission and maintain the open permission fields. Then test whether the job can be run with the permissions from the PFCG role.
Authorization tools - advantages and limitations
If you have defined the roles to the extent that the essential processes are depicted, then you will technically check which organisational features they contain (organisational levels, but also cost centres, organisational units, etc.). You then compare the technical result with the result from the consideration of the structure organisation and the business role description. A likely result is that you do not have to use all technical organisational features for differentiation. A possible result is that you want to add fields such as the cost centre to the organisation level.

SAP Note 1707841 ships an extension to the system trace in the STAUTHTRACE transaction, which enables the permission trace to be used on all or on specific application servers. To select the application servers on which to start the trace, click the System Trace button. Now select the application servers in the list on which you want to run the system trace and start the trace with a click on Trace. In the evaluation of the Permission trace, an additional column named Server Name appears, showing you the name of the application server on which the respective permission checks were logged.
