Analyzing the quality of the authorization concept - Part 1
Goal of an authorization concept
For these scenarios, there are several ways to determine which systems and clients to display to the user in the self-service selection. We therefore describe a possibility that you can use in all scenarios. To do this, use the BAPI BAPI_USER_GET_DETAIL, which you must call for the SAP User ID on all relevant systems. Check the entry for the RETURN table parameter first. If the entry is empty, the user is present in the SAPS system. Any error messages during the call are displayed in this parameter (e.g. if the user is not present). If the PROFILES or ACTIVITYGROUPS table parameters have entries, permissions in this system are assigned to the user. In addition, you can use the REF_USER export parameter to identify a reference user that is associated with it. However, you must also check that it has permissions. You can also determine if a lock exists when you call the BAPI BAPI_USER_GET_DETAIL. To do this, use the ISLOCKED export parameter, which returns a four-character combination of the L (locked) and U (not locked) characters.
You can adjust these evaluation methods in the table T77AW or in the transaction OOAW. To do this, select the respective evaluation path by selecting it, and click on the evaluation path (individual maintenance) in the menu on the left. The table that appears defines the relationships between the objects. For SAP CRM only the objects Organisational Unit (O), Headquarters (S), Central Person (CP) and User (US) play a role. For simplicity, you can now copy the lines that use the Person (P) object. Enter a new number here and replace the object P with the object CP.
Displaying sensitive data
WF-BATCH: The WF-BATCH user is used for background processing in SAP Business Workflow and is created automatically when customising workflows. WF-BATCH is often associated with the SAP_ALL profile because the exact requirements for the permissions depend on the user's usage. The password of the user can be set and synchronised via the transaction SWU3. Safeguard measures: After automatic generation, change the user's password and assign it to the SUPER user group.
Always make sure you use the latest version of the Note Assistant. To do this, look for SAP hints about the BC-UPG-NA component in the system recommendations. We also recommend that you perform the security patch process as part of a release or support package upgrade to avoid additional testing by security advisories already released at the time of the upgrade.
Secure your go-live additionally with "Shortcut for SAP systems". You can assign necessary SAP authorizations quickly and easily directly in the system.
The same applies to RFC connections from a development system to productive systems.
All transaction codes are added from the IMG project to the Role menu.
