SAP Security Automation
With "SIVIS as a Service" we present you the best solution for central user and authorization management in SAP. This replaces and protects you from the development end of your central user administration (SAP ZBV). SIVIS offers over 20 functions that you can flexibly combine (SaaS model), e.g. over 1,000 role templates for S/4HANA! This means that a new authorization concept can be quickly implemented! The encrypted connection to your SAP systems enables secure distribution of all changes made in the SAP standard.
The authorisation concept in SAP ERP does not normally allow to limit permissions to individual financial years. However, this is particularly relevant for tax audits. As of 1 January 2002, the electronic tax audit was enshrined in law in § 147 (6) of the German Tax Code. The opinion of the Finance Administration is in the BMF letter of 16.07.2001 (BStBl. 2001 I)"Principles on data access and the verifiability of digital documents"(GDPdU). The electronic control check can be performed in Germany on three types of access: Immediate access: The tax authority shall have the right to inspect the stored data (read-only access) and to use the taxpayer's hardware and software to verify the data, including the master data and links. Mean Access: The tax authority may require the taxable person to perform the read-only processing of the data in accordance with its specifications. Volume Release: Alternatively, the tax administration may require the taxable person to have the stored documents available to it for evaluation on a machine-usable medium.
Make sure that the client-independent tables for logging are always logged when the parameters are not set to OFF. In addition to the parameters listed here, the table itself must also have the table logging hook set; This is usually done with the help of the transaction SE13. The settings are made in development and then transported to the other systems. The SAP standard already provides some tables for logging; For an overview of these tables, see SAP Note 112388 (tables requiring logging). You can evaluate the logging settings of the tables using the RDDPRCHK report or the RDDPRCHK_AUDIT transaction in the SAP system. The selection is made in the start image of the report, e.g. via the table name or the selection of options for logging.
You can view the contents of the checked permission fields by double-clicking on the respective variables. The Variables 1 tab displays the variables with the respective values used for this eligibility check. These values correspond to the values that you also see in the System Trace for Permissions. If a permission check ends with SY-SUBRC = 0 when no appropriate permissions are available, verify that the check is turned off locally via the SU24 or globally through the SU25 or AUTH_SWITCH_OBJECTS transactions.
During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.
The call is made through the transaction SE37.
