User Interface Client Permissions
For the entries in the SPTH table, note that the application defines whether a file is accessed with or without the path. For example, the related transactions ST11 (error log files) and AL11 (SAP directories) behave differently. While ST11 opens almost all files without a path (they are in the DIR_HOME directory anyway), AL11 basically uses fully specified file names with a path. An entry in the SPTH table with PATH = / is therefore misleading. It specifies that the defined access restrictions apply to all files specified by path. However, this only applies to applications that access files using a specified path. However, applications that access files without a path are not restricted; Files in the DIR_HOME directory may be excluded.
The security of an SAP system is not only dependent on securing the production system. The development systems should also be considered, since here it is possible to influence the productive system via changes to be transported in the development environment and in customizing or via inadequately configured interfaces. Depending on the conceptual granularity of responsibilities in the development and customizing environment, more detailed authorization checks may need to be performed.
Deletion of change documents
Users can activate or deactivate processes without affecting other processes. For example, they can activate Succession & Development without affecting position management in Employee Central. With the help of the tool, users always know for what purpose a particular user has been given a particular permission. Basic authorizations, which are identical for every user, are only stored once in a platform role. This ensures that system performance remains optimal.
The first step is to create an IMG project. You can create a new project or edit an existing project to create a customising role. To do this, call the SPRO_ADMI project management entry transaction. If a suitable project is not available, you can view the list of SAP customising activities. To do this, click the SAP Reference-IMG button or create a new project. To do this, select the Create Project button ( ) or the (F5) button. A new window will open, where you enter the project name. Note that you have a maximum of ten characters for the name. Once you have confirmed your input, a new screen will open. The General Data tab allows you to specify users, project managers, project times, and the language for the information texts.
However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".
These eligibility objects are then additionally entered in the transaction SE93 (Table TSTCA).
At www.sap-corner.de you will also find a lot of useful information on the subject of SAP authorizations.
For example, you can filter the loggers of multiple emergency users.
