The Anatomy of SAP Authorization or Documentation on SAP Authorization Objects and Authorization Field Values
After these preparations, we now proceed to the expression of the User-Exit in the validation that has just been created. To do this, you copy the User-Exit definition in the created custom programme, specify a name for the User-Exit definition (e.g. UGALI) and create a new text element.
If such information is available from the past, it should be checked whether all topics have been implemented in accordance with the comments. If one or the other recommendation has not been implemented, this circumstance should in any case be documented in a comprehensible manner, or it should be possible to provide a comprehensible justification. However, it is not sufficient to focus only on the improvement potentials that have been presented, because it must be ensured that all those points that have not been criticized in the past will continue to fit. Preparation is made much more difficult if there are no helpful comments or reports from the previous fiscal year, or if it is a first-time audit or a change of auditor. What all does the IT auditor look at during the annual audit? There are topics that every auditor looks at because there are standards for doing so, however it is common for the auditor to perform additional audit procedures in the IT audit depending on the strategy of the overall audit. In this newsletter we want to focus on the most important standard audit topics on the process level and the IT controls defined therein in the context of the SAP® system.

Further changes can be found when using the proof of use. When you click on the button (proof of use), you will receive a new selection. You can check which permissions, SU24 suggestion values, or SU22 suggestion values the authorization object uses. The ABAP-Workbench selection, as in previous releases, provides you with the proof of use for implementing the authorization object in programmes, classes, and so on. You can use the SAP NEW Data button to mark whether this authorization object is relevant to an SAP New role of a particular release.
If a user does not have a print permission for an output device (S_SPO_DEV privilege object), an instant print flag may be rescinded, which means that a spool job created during the job step would not print immediately. If archive parameters are passed when scheduling a step, a check is performed on the object S_WFAR_PRI. If the Step user does not have a matching permission, an error message is displayed.
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.
If you have an area start page, check the technical name of the corresponding logical link.
At www.sap-corner.de you will also find a lot of useful information on the subject of SAP authorizations.
For this purpose, the so-called AUTHORITY-CHECK is used, which queries the required authorization object characteristics and thus only allows authorized users to execute the code.
