Features of the SAP authorization concept
Authorization concept - user administration process
The Security Audit Log now logs the table or view name and the scheduled activity of external table access via RFC connections; a new message type has been defined. You can find this fix and an overview of the required support packages in SAP Note 1539105.
The first step to eliminating sprawl in permissions is to prevent it. To do this, administrators should obtain an overview and the assigned authorizations should be checked regularly. This helps to identify problems and incorrectly assigned authorizations at an early stage. The workload monitor can help here. This shows which authorizations users are actually using. The use of authorizations can be analyzed selectively and exported to tables. This also helps to improve existing roles and to create new roles for the authorization model in SAP.

You have developed applications yourself and would like to maintain suggestion values for them? The easiest way to do this is with the help of the permission trace. Permission checks are also performed on self-developed applications. These applications must therefore be included in the PFCG rolls. If they are maintained in a role menu, you will notice that in addition to the start permissions (such as S_TCODE), no other authorization objects are added to the PFCG role. The reason for this is that even for customer-specific applications suggestion values must be maintained to ensure that the PFCG role care runs according to the rules and to facilitate the care for you. Up to now, the values of customer-owned applications had to be either manually maintained in the PFCG role, or the suggested values maintenance in the transaction SU24 was performed manually.
If a transaction is removed from the role menu, the default permission is deleted when mixing. However, this only applies if no further transaction requires this permission and therefore uses the same permission proposal. This applies to both active and inactive default permissions.
Secure your go-live additionally with "Shortcut for SAP systems". You can assign necessary SAP authorizations quickly and easily directly in the system.
If you want to allow users to access only individual table rows, you can use the S_TABU_LIN authorization object, which allows access to specific rows of a table for defined organisational criteria.
