Upgrades also require that the eligibility roles be revised. In this context, you can use the SAP_NEW profile for support. During an upgrade, changes and enhancements to permissions checks are included in SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP. In order for users to continue to perform their previous actions in the SAP system as usual, you as the permission administrator must revise or add to the authorisation expressions within the framework of the established permission concept. Basically, you use the transaction SU25 for this purpose. For the transition period, you can use the SAP_NEW permission until the permission concept is up to date on the new release. Since the handling of SAP_NEW is not always transparent and the question arises, for example, when the profile should be assigned and when not, we explain the background here.
This very critical authorization can be used to electronically erase, or manipulate program runs including authorization queries in a variety of ways. This authorization should be assigned only very restrictively, for example developers need the authorization however for their daily work.
You can schedule background jobs in the SM36 and SA38 transactions, but also in a variety of application transactions. It is important to know that special permissions are not necessary for the installation, modification, etc. of your own jobs. An exception is the release of background jobs; it is protected by a permission. Permissions are also required for the activities on other users' background jobs, and the following authorization objects are available in SAP backend processing: S_BTCH_JOB controls the access rights to other users' jobs. S_BTCH_NAM allows you to schedule programmes under a different user ID. S_BTCH_ADM grants parent permissions that are usually only required by administrators.
You can also remove customer-specific organisational levels and convert them to a simple permission field. The report PFCG_ORGFIELD_DELETE serves for this purpose. It removes the permission field from the USORG table and changes the permission proposal values to that field. Finally, it goes through all the rolls that contain a shape to the field. However, it does not restore the old location of the field, because summarised values will no longer be separated when the field is elevated to the organisational level. Instead, the aggregated values are entered separately in each field. The PFCG_ORGFIELD_DELETE report also provides a value aid that shows only the customer's organisational levels. You can also use this value aid to determine all customer-specific organisational levels.
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.
You can check which permissions, SU24 suggestion values, or SU22 suggestion values the authorization object uses.
You have the option to check the result of the selection and view the users found.
