Maintain batch job suggestion values
Finally, we would like to draw your attention to SAP Note 1781328, which provides the report PFCG_ORGFIELD_ROLES_UPD. This report enables a mass update of existing role derivations. However, you do not use the concept of the organisational matrix, but you have to store the new organisational values directly when the report is called. Therefore, this function requires a high degree of understanding for the adjustments that are running in the background and is therefore only available as a pilot note. This means that this message must be explicitly requested via a customer message and only then will SAP support release it for you if necessary. It is not currently planned to make the information generally available via a support package.
Transaction SU53 can be used to immediately display the missing authorizations for a single SAP user. This is advantageous when individual background processing or activities are not executed correctly and the cause is suspected to be missing authorizations. In this way, the cause of the error can be narrowed down more quickly.
To support the safe operation of SAP systems, SAP offers a whole portfolio of services. We present the security services offered by SAP Active Global Support (AGS). The security of an SAP system in operation depends on many factors. There are several security features in the SAP standard, such as user management, authentication and encryption capabilities, web service security features, and the various authorisation concepts. Vulnerabilities in the standard software are also regularly fixed in SAP notes and support packages. You are responsible for the safe operation of your SAP system landscapes; so you need to incorporate these features and fixes into your systems. The AGS Security Services support you by bundling the experiences of the AGS into consolidated best practices. We introduce these services and describe how they help you gain an overview of the security of your operational concept.
Excel-based tools that do not use the PFCG transaction in the background, like eCATT, function almost exclusively on the one-way principle: Simultaneous maintenance of roles in the PFCG transaction is no longer possible, and changes there are overwritten by the tool. This means that all permission administrators must work exclusively with the new solution.
If you get into the situation that authorizations are required that were not considered in the role concept, "Shortcut for SAP systems" allows you to assign the complete authorization for the respective authorization object.
The specifications for this should already be written down in the SAP® authorization concept.
At www.sap-corner.de you will also find a lot of useful information on the subject of SAP authorizations.
If it is a new application, adjust the roles by including the new application in the Role menu, and then maintaining the permissions of the authorization objects loaded into the role by the suggestion values.
