What are the advantages of SAP authorizations?
Further training in the area of authorization management
The AL08 transaction displays all logged-in users and their application servers. In the Server Name column, you can see which application server the user is logged on to, and which has the permission issue. Switch to this application server by calling the SM51 transaction and double-clicking the application server you are looking for. On the application server that is now active, run the permission trace as usual and review the evaluation.
The permission checks are logged as part of the system trace in transaction ST01. It records all permission checks and validated permission values for a specific application server, and specifies, depending on the client, whether the permission checks were successful or not. The Trace display has now been improved (see also SAP Note 1373111).

In general, you should note that not all relevant change documents of a system are present in the user and permission management. As a rule, authorisation administration takes place in the development system; Therefore, the relevant proof of amendment of the authorisation management is produced in the development systems. By contrast, you will find the relevant user administration change documents in the production systems; Therefore, you should note that when importing roles and profiles in the production systems, no change documents are written. Only transport logs are generated that indicate that changes have been made to the objects. For this reason, the supporting documents of the development systems' authorisation management are relevant for revision and should be secured accordingly.
In addition to SAP standard software, do you also use custom ABAP programmes? Learn how the SAP Code Vulnerability Analyser can scan your customer code for potential security vulnerabilities and resolve them if necessary. Permission concepts, firewalls, anti-virus and encryption programmes alone are not enough to protect your IT infrastructure and IT systems against internal and external attacks and misuse. Some of the risks are identified by potential security vulnerabilities in the ABAP code, most of which cannot be addressed by downstream measures and therefore need to be addressed in the code itself. It should also be noted that the permission concepts used can be circumvented by ABAP code, which underlines the weight of security vulnerabilities in the ABAP code. While SAP is responsible for providing security information to help close security vulnerabilities in standard code, it is up to you to address security vulnerabilities in custom ABAP programmes. Companies are subject to a whole range of legal requirements on data protection and data integrity, and you can fulfil them as far as possible with the help of a new tool. The SAP Code Vulnerability Analyser is integrated into the ABAP Test Cockpit (ATC) and thus available in all ABAP editors such as SE80, SE38, SE24, etc. Developers can use it to scan their code for vulnerabilities during programming and before releasing their tasks. This reduces testing costs and costs.
