SAP authorizations: Recommendations for setting up, monitoring and controlling
Customise SAP_ALL Profile Contents
With the introduction of security policy, it is now possible to define your own security policy for System or Service users. This way you can ensure that backward-compatible passwords are still used for these users. This eliminates the reason that password rules were not valid for System/Service type users; Therefore, the rules for the content of passwords now apply to users of these types. Password change rules are still not valid for System or Service type users. If you are using security policy in your system, you can use the RSUSR_SECPOL_USAGE report to get an overview of how security policy is assigned to users. This report can be found in the User Information System (transaction SUIM). In addition, the user information system reports have added selected security policies to the user selection. This change was provided through a support package; For details, see SAP Note 1611173.
The customising objects you have just created are now integrated into your own IMG structure. To do this, open the SIMGH transaction again, call your structure in Change mode, and paste it under the previously created folder by selecting Action > Insert a Level Lower. You should already create a documentation of the same name with the installation of the Customising objects. To do this, select the Create button on the Document tab and write a text to save it and then activate it.
Archive change document management for user and permission management
Access to tables and reports should be restricted. A general grant of permissions, such as for the SE16 or SA38 transaction, is not recommended. Instead, parameter or report transactions can help. These transactions allow you to grant permissions only to specific tables or reports. You can maintain secondary authorization objects, such as S_TABU_NAM, in the Sample Value Care.
The use of suggestion values not only brings advantages when creating or maintaining PFCG roles, but also when maintaining permissions as a rework of an upgrade. Furthermore, these values can be used as a basis for risk definitions. Before creating PFCG roles, it is useful to maintain the suggested values for the transactions used. However, you do not need to completely revise all of the suggested values that are delivered by SAP.
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.
