Archive change document management for user and permission management
In our eCATT test configuration, the prepared file can now be used to play the recording. Note that playback stops when we encounter an error in the PFCG transaction, such as when we try to create a role with the input values that already exist. To play, specify the file under External Variants in Test Configuration and click Run (F8). You will be given the opportunity to set some playback properties. Now, with Run, it starts. You will see some messages from the PFCG version at the bottom of the status bar and will end up with a summary of success (or failure if there were errors). We admit that eCATT is more complex to use than the transaction SU10. However, if you have used eCATT a few times, it is quite quick. Please always note that the basic mechanism is to play a recording and therefore other organisational levels (e.g. a third organisational level, which is in the dialogue before the work and the sales point) also require a different recording and editing.
Ensure that permission checks are performed when reference users are assigned. The checks are performed on the permissions associated with the roles and profiles assigned to the reference user. These eligibility tests are also a novelty, which is supplemented by SAP Note 513694.
SAP Security Concepts
The programmer of a functionality determines where, how or whether authorizations should be checked at all. In the program, the appropriate syntax is used to determine whether the user has sufficient authorization for a particular activity by comparing the field values specified in the program for the authorization object with the values contained in the authorizations of the user master record.
This start authorization check is delivered inactive. To use it, you must activate it. After activation, you can use authorizations to control which Web Dynpro ABAP applications users are allowed to run. For the start authorization check of Web Dynpro ABAP applications, the system uses the authorization object S_START in the same way as the authorization object S_TCODE for transactions. The object has the fields AUTHPGMID, AUTHOBJTYP and AUTHOBJNAM, which correspond to the key fields PGMID, OBJECT and OBJ_NAME of the object catalog (table TADIR). So, during the start authorization check, the Web Dynpro ABAP runtime checks the key of the object catalog entry for the Web Dynpro ABAP application.
If you get into the situation that authorizations are required that were not considered in the role concept, "Shortcut for SAP systems" allows you to assign the complete authorization for the respective authorization object.
This improves the completeness of the recorded RFC usage data.
Manual addition of authorization objects to roles is sometimes necessary.
