SQ03 User group maintenance
Continuous improvement of system availability and performance
This option is useful if several transactions are to be checked simultaneously for their existing assignment to a particular user. This variant must first identify all roles that have already been assigned to the user. This is done in the transaction SE16N by entering the table AGR_USERS. In addition, the limit of the maximum hit number can be set in this image. The user concerned must now be entered here. Furthermore, the output should be limited to the roles only. After the query is executed, all the roles assigned to the previously entered user are displayed. These are now completely marked and copied. Then in the transaction SE16N a step back is taken and this time the table AGR_1251 is selected. Now all the roles that have been copied previously are inserted here. In addition, the object S_TCODE and the transactions to be searched for are filtered. Warning: When entering transaction codes, be sure to be case-sensitive! At this point, the output can also be limited to the roles and object values (in this case, the transactions). After the query is executed, the transactions entered will now show those that the user can already perform. In addition, the role assigned to the transaction is shown. In conclusion, the SUIM is only partially suitable for identifying certain transactions with user assignment. Although the search using the S_TCODE permission object also allows you to view multiple transactions. However, since the result is missing the assignment of transactions considered to roles, the SUIM transaction can only be usefully used to check a single transaction for its existing assignment to a particular user.
The appropriate SAP Basis team provides support for 24/7 systems. One of the biggest advantages is, the team is familiar with the company infrastructure. They work with it on a daily basis and can provide quick solutions to concrete problems.

The SAP NetWeaver Application Server Add-on for Code Vulnerability Analysis tool, also known as Code Vulnearability Analyzer (CVA), is a tool that performs a static analysis of user-defined ABAP source code to detect possible security risks. The tool is available in the NetWeaver ABAP stack and is based on versions from: 7.0 NetWeaver: in EHP2 SP 14 or higher / 7.0 NetWeaver: in EHP3 SP 09 or higher / 7.3 NetWeaver: in EHP1 SP 09 or higher / 7.4 NetWeaver: in SP05 or higher To use the CVA tool, the execution of system-wide security controls must be enabled with the RSLIN_SEC_LICENSE_SETUP report. Afterwards, the security checks are available in standard ABAP code checking tools such as ABAP Test Cockpit (ATC) or Code Inspector (SCI). The option of these checks is usually referred to as "security analysis in extended program check". Note that the use of the security check feature for custom code separation is licensed and incurs additional costs. The older program that has been around for years is Virtual Forge's "Code Profiler". It is one of the first products in this segment of SAP security and was used by SAP itself for many years. It is very comprehensive and is also able to track individual variables across the entire control flow. This leads to very precise statements and a reduction of false positives.
Therefore, there can also be critical permissions, profiles, and roles that do not fit in the naming scheme defined by SAP. Manual identification of critical SAP permissions is difficult overall. However, tools are available that automatically check for critical permissions. In this case, the critical SAP permissions are usually predefined by special verification software. If the critical permissions, profiles, and roles are identified, they should be adjusted according to the permission planning. The system will then be checked to see if the desired system behaviour has been achieved or if malfunctions occur. This adjustment process may be complex in the event of major changes and should not be carried out on the production system.
For administrators, a useful product - "Shortcut for SAP Systems" - is available in the SAP basis area.
In general, the SAP basis sees its responsibility here in the connectivity to the corporate network or the enterprise systems, which lie in the responsibility of the SAP basis.
To this end, we support you in all tasks related to planning, maintaining and updating the technological SAP basis.
