How to analyze roles and authorizations in the SAP system
Take advantage of roll transport feature improvements
Please note that depending on the results of the RSUSR003 report, a system log message of type E03 is generated. If a critical feature (stored in red) is detected, the message text"Programme RSUSR003 reports ›Security violations‹"is written into the system log. If no critical feature has been detected, the message"Programme RSUSR003 reports ›Security check passed‹"will be displayed instead. This message is sent because the password status information of the default users is highly security relevant and you should be able to track the accesses. You can grant the User and System Administration change permissions for the RSUSR003 report, or you can grant only one execution permission with the S_USER_ADM authorization object and the value CHKSTDPWD in the S_ADM_AREA field. This permission does not include user management change permissions and can therefore also be assigned to auditors.
The four important concepts of SAP security first require a certain amount of effort. They not only have to be coordinated, formulated and made available, but also continuously updated and, above all, actively implemented. Nevertheless, the return on investment is high, because they prepare for all eventualities, provide audit security, and also offer a high level of protection for the SAP system and thus for the company itself.
Generic access to tables
A user reports that he or she is receiving a permission error even though you have granted him or her the required permissions. This could be due to a faulty buffering of the permission data. Although a user has been assigned a role with the correct permission data, this user is presented with a permission error due to missing permissions. This may be surprising at first glance, but it can almost always be fixed by a short analysis.
For the configuration, you must first enable encryption and, if necessary, signing in the SAPConnect administration. To do this, go to Settings > Outgoing Messages > Settings on the Signing & Encryption tab of the SCOT transaction. Note that the activation only enables the encryption or signature of emails; whether this is actually done always controls the sending application.
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.
An exclusive control over Office programmes should be well considered.
At www.sap-corner.de you will also find a lot of useful information on the subject of SAP authorizations.
However, you should remove all profiles and lock the user.
