Architecture of authorization concepts
Sustainably protect your data treasures with the right authorization management
This missing functionality comes with SAP Note 1902038 and can only be recorded via the respective support packages for SAP NetWeaver Releases 7.31 and 7.40. The ZBV's change documents are written for the USER_CUA change document object. The analysis of the change documents can be accessed using the following methods.
There are several ways to view the implementation of permission checks: Either you jump directly from the system trace for permissions to the appropriate locations in the programme code, or you go over the definition of the authorization objects. To view the permission checks from the permissions system trace, start the trace from the STAUTHTRACE transaction and run the applications you want to view. Now open the evaluation of the Trace. In the Programme Name column, you can see the programme that includes the Permissions Check. Double-click to go directly to the code site where the permission check is implemented.
Access to tables and reports should be restricted. A general grant of permissions, such as for the SE16 or SA38 transaction, is not recommended. Instead, parameter or report transactions can help. These transactions allow you to grant permissions only to specific tables or reports. You can maintain secondary authorization objects, such as S_TABU_NAM, in the Sample Value Care.
Additional checks should be performed on document transactions in specific processes. This may be necessary, for example, when booking via interfaces in customer-owned processes, if the booking is to be possible only under certain conditions or on certain accounts.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
When programming your permission check, always check the SY-SUBRC return code and define what should happen in the event of a non-successful permission check, i.e. if SY-SUBRC is not equal to 0.
For a long time, SAP authorization consultants and ABAP developers have disagreed on how to implement authorization object characteristics in the coding.
