Tax reporting: The tax reporting system in SAP is based on the accounting area. The Profit Centre is not intended as a reporting unit here.
The role menu of the PFCG role now consists of folders that represent all logical links within a scope start page, and external services that represent the logical links and the area start pages themselves. This means that any external service listed in the Role Menu is eligible for a Area Start Page or Logical Link. If such an external service is removed from the role menu and the PFCG role is generated, the user of this PFCG role does not have permissions to view this external service (see screenshot next page). You will find duplicate, maybe even triple, entries from external services. These are mainly found in the folders of the homepage and under GENERIC_OP_LINKS. You can delete them without any concern, because an external service for a permission must appear only once in the Role menu. For a better overview, it is also useful to rename the external services or folders as they are shown in the SAP CRM Web Client.
Assignment of roles
For table logging, it must be ensured that SAP® Note 112388 (tables requiring logging) is fully implemented and that all tables containing financially relevant data are also included in the logging. Of course, this also applies to all Z-tables! As last point of the important parameter settings are those for the definition of the password settings. Here, it should be ensured that the parameters are also set up in accordance with the company's specifications. However, the check should not only focus on the global settings that are valid for all users, but should also include all those users who have been assigned their own security policies. Especially for these, an appropriate justification must be available in writing.
Put the values of the permission trace into the role menu: The applications (transactions, web-dynpro applications, RFCBausteine or web services) are detected through their startup permissions checks (S_TCODE, S_START, S_RFC, S_SERVICE) and can be added to the role menu of your role. In your role, go to the Menu tab and import these applications by clicking Apply Menus and selecting Import from Trace. A new window will open. Here you can evaluate the trace and view all recognised applications in the right window. To do this, click the Evaluate Trace button and select System Trace (ST01) > Local. In a new System Trace window, you can specify the evaluation criteria for the trace, such as the user using the Trace field only for users or the time period over which to record. Then click Evaluate. Then, in the right part of the window, you will see all the applications logged. Select the applications you want to apply to the Roles menu and click Apply. You can now decide how the applications appear in the Role menu. The application can be added to the role either as a permission proposal or as a menu item through the Add drop-down box. They can be displayed as a list or as a panel menu (insert as list) or according to the SAP menu tree in which the application is stored in the SAP menu (insert as SAP menu).
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.
Enter the user whose permissions have failed in the field with the same name.
You can also find some useful tips from practice on the subject of SAP authorizations on the page www.sap-corner.de.
A temporary shutdown of Central User Management is usually not recommended.
