You will find all the user favourites of a system in the SMEN_BUFFC table; additionally there is the table SMEN_BUFFI, in which the links from the favourite lists are stored. You can simply export this table to Microsoft Excel and then evaluate it. At this point, however, we would like to point out that you may not evaluate the favourites without prior consultation with the users, because the stored favourites are user-related and therefore personal data. The SMEN_BUFFC table contains various fields that determine the structure of the placed favourites. For example, you can create folders in your favourites to sort them. This folder structure can also be found in the SMEN_BUFFC table. However, the entries themselves that you will find in the REPORT field are important for the re-creation of a permission concept. The REPORTTYPE field tells you whether the entry in question is, for example, a transaction or a Web-Dynpro application. In the TEXT field, if required, you will find the description of the favourite entry. In addition, you should also pay attention to the TARGET_SYS field, since favourites can also be entered for other systems, in this case an RFC target system is entered under TARGET_SYS.
Now, if you want to use the debugger, you can set a Session Breakpoint directly from the source code via the button. Once you call the application and reach the relevant point in your code, the debugger starts and you can move through the programme step by step. Make sure to set external breakpoints via the button if you are calling your application via the browser rather than via SAP GUI.
System trace function ST01
Determine if all recurring external services corresponding to area start pages and logical links have been removed from the GENERIC_OP_LINKS folder. Create a separate PFCG role for this folder. This PFCG role could contain all the basic permissions a user must have in SAP CRM. This includes the permission for the generic OP links. You can transfer this folder to a separate PFCG role by locally specifying the PFCG role that contains the GENERIC_OP_LINKS folder in the new PFCG role under Menu > Other Role >. Now maintain the PFCG role so that only the UIU_COMP authorization object remains active. Disable any other visible authorization objects. These are the authorization objects that allow access to data. You can maintain these authorization objects in the PFCG role, which describes the user's workplace. In the PFCG role that describes the desktop, you can now delete the GENERIC_OP_LINKS folder. If you remix the PFCG role, you will find that many of the unnecessary permissions objects have disappeared.
If there are no buttons for copying and pasting in the PFCG transaction, you can simply insert them. Only seven lines are displayed in the dialogue box to maintain field values to properties in transaction PFCG. Up to now it was not possible to insert more than these seven lines at once from the clipboard. However, this may often be necessary in the context of the maintenance of permissions, for example if you want to use entries from other roles. Read how to copy and paste the buttons in the dialogue box to maintain field values to the authorization objects.
However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".
You can then run Step 2a again.
