Use the authorisation route to identify proposed values for customer developments
Add External Services from SAP CRM to the User Menu
You can limit the recording to a specific user. You can also use the trace to search only for permission errors. The evaluation is similar to the evaluation of the system trace in the transaction ST01. In transaction STAUTHTRACE, however, you can also evaluate for specific authorization objects or for specific permission check return codes (i.e. after positive or negative permission checks). You can also filter multiple entries.
In the area of group consolidation, an authorization concept ensures that no data can be deliberately manipulated, for example to change balance sheets. This can prevent significant financial or reputational damage to banks and stakeholders. Furthermore, access to financial data of subdivisions of a group, such as individual business units or companies, must be restricted to those employees who are allowed to access it because their current activities require it. As a result, a controller of a business unit, for example, can only view the consolidated figures of his business unit, but not the figures of the entire group. Further authorization roles are required, for example, for external auditors. These auditors check all the figures for the entire group, but may only have read access to this data.
Mitigating GRC risks for SAP systems
In addition, critical commands should be prohibited from the outset. Examples are EXEC SQL, which allows direct access to database tables bypassing certain security mechanisms, and CLIENT SPECIFIED, which allows access to data in other clients.
Configuration validation is a tool that allows systems to be tested against corporate or organisational requirements and regulations. You can find this tool in the Change Management section of the SAP Solution Manager. This allows you to evaluate security-relevant configurations and critical permissions. This is based on the SAP Solution Manager's Configuration and Change Database (CCDB), which stores all details about the configuration of the connected systems. The configuration data is stored in different configuration stores, depending on the type of configuration. You can evaluate the configuration of the operating system, the database, and profile parameters in the ABAP and Java systems. You will also get an overview of the status of transport orders and support packages. You can also track changes to the configurations of the attached systems in the CCDB. You can also graphically evaluate these changes via an end-to-end analysis in SAP BW; contains information on the number of changes per system, the type of changes and the modification date.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
The RESPAREA field has a maintenance dialogue that allows you to enter areas of responsibility.
We will show you how you can get an overview of the well-maintained organisational units and see dependencies between the different organisational values.
