List of required organisational levels and their value
However, there is also the situation that eligibility fields are collected at organisational levels. If these permission fields have already been filled with values in the PFCG roles, you must refill these organisation levels after categorising the permission fields as organisation levels. The PFCG_ORGFIELD_ROLES report helps you to do this, which matches all the roles with the organisation level fields, i.e. with the permission fields maintained in the organisation level fields.

For a long time, SAP authorization consultants and ABAP developers have disagreed on how to implement authorization object characteristics in the coding. There are two positions: On the one hand, consultants advise never to test for the signal word DUMMY, the constant space or the literal ' '. These tests only superficially check for the existence of an authorization object and do not react to settings in the field specification in the profile of the roles. Moreover, the literal ' ' is then authorized because it is displayed in the transaction STAUTHTRACE. On the other hand, there are situations where development uses these superficial tests to save the user time and the machine resources. If the program determines early on that the user does not have the necessary objects in the user buffer, it may abort before the first SELECT and issue an appropriate error message. Both positions contain a kernel of truth. Let's look at the effects of different programming on a simplified example. The role(s) have only the authorization object S_DEVELOP with the field value DEVCLASS "Z*".
You have now successfully recorded the blueprint. Now the slightly trickier part follows: The identification of the values to be changed at mass execution. In the editor of your test configuration, at the bottom of the text box, is the record you have created: TCD ( PFCG , PFCG_1 ). Double-click the PFCG_1 interface. On the right, a new detail with the recording details appears. Now you have to look for your input a bit. For example, use the role name entered on the PFCG entry screen (field name 'AGR_NAME_NEW'). Now comes an important step: Replace the values you entered during the recording with a placeholder, a so-called input parameter. To do this, go to the VALIN line and type any parameter name, such as ROLLENNAME, instead of the role name you entered. Click Enter and you will be asked what type of parameter it is. Specify Import and confirm with Yes.

Although it is possible to create profiles manually, it is recommended to work with the profile generator. The Profile Generator allows you to automatically create profiles and assign them to user master records. The Profile Generator is used to simplify and speed up user administration and should always be used when setting up authorizations for your employees. The Profile Generator is also used to set up the user menus that appear when users log on to the SAP system.

"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.

New AP implementation, S/4HANA conversion or redesign of an SAP authorization concept - the complexity has increased enormously and requires a clear structure of processes, responsibilities and the associated technical implementation.

The website offers a lot of useful information about SAP authorizations.

The transactions associated with a customising role are not displayed in the Session Manager or the SAP Easy Access menu, but can only be viewed through the view in the customising.
