Lack of know-how
In-house role maintenance
A typical application arises when a new SAP user is requested. The data owner now checks whether the person making the request and the person to be authorized are at all authorized to do so, what data would be affected, whether an SAP user already exists to whom new roles can be assigned and old ones revoked, whether data access can be limited in time, and so on.
With the SAP NetWeaver 7.03 and 7.30 releases, Web Dynpro ABAP applications (as well as other Web Dynpro ABAP functions, see SAP Note 1413011) have been tested for permission to launch such applications. The authorization object that controls this startup permission is S_START. This authorization object is used in the same way as the S_TCODE authorization object.
Basics SAP Authorizations including Fiori - Online Training
Native or analytical tiles: These tiles work exclusively in the FIORI interface and are adapted to the new technology. Here, for example, push messages are displayed on the tile, or key figures, diagrams, etc. are displayed, which can then be processed directly with a click. These tiles do not have direct GUI access, or cannot be used directly in the GUI environment. As mentioned above, access to these tiles is provided in a so-called front-end system via corresponding catalogs and groups. However, the underlying conceptual permissions (who is allowed to do what within the functionality of the tile) follows the same processes as in the "old world" for transaction access. The tile in the front-end needs here corresponding dependent distinctive authorizations (keyword: SU24 adjustment). In the back-end system, then again - analogous to the "old" world - about a role, which is built in the profile generator and maintained on object and field level, or set. Of course, topics such as updating internal and third-party tools, integrating cloud solutions, modern hybrid infrastructures, defining and operating ongoing dynamic changes, etc. must also be taken into account here.
Structural authorizations work with SAP HCM Organizational Management and define who can be seen, but not what can be seen. This is done based on evaluation paths in the org tree. Structural authorizations should therefore only be used together with general authorizations. Just like the general authorizations in SAP ECC HR, they enable regulated access to data in time-dependent structures. An authorization profile is used to determine the authorization. In addition, it is defined how the search is carried out on the org tree.
However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".
