Challenges in authorization management

A temporary shutdown of Central User Management is usually not recommended. However, in certain cases it may be necessary. We will show you what pre- and post-processing is required to avoid data inconsistencies. In complex SAP landscapes where the Central User Administration (ZBV) is used, there may be cases where you want to temporarily remove a subsidiary system from the ZBV without having to delete this system or shut down the entire ZBV, for example if you want to create users in a subsidiary system at short notice.
Are you using SAP NetWeaver Business Client instead of SAP GUI? The arrangement of the applications on the screen is controlled by PFCG roles. The SAP NetWeaver Business Client (NWBC) is an alternative to SAP GUI for access to SAP applications. This allows you to centrally access applications that reside in different SAP systems and have different UI technologies. The NWBC enables you to call not only transactions, but also Web-Dynpro applications and external service applications. In this tip, we will show you how to use PFCG roles to control the design of the NWBC user interface.
Temporarily disable Central User Management
A user reports that he or she is receiving a permission error even though you have granted him or her the required permissions. This could be due to a faulty buffering of the permission data. Although a user has been assigned a role with the correct permission data, this user is presented with a permission error due to missing permissions. This may be surprising at first glance, but it can almost always be fixed by a short analysis.
Another function of this transaction is to find transactions based on generic table access transactions. Here you can check whether there are parameter or variant transactions for a given table, or for a particular view, for which you can set up permissions, instead of allowing access to the table through generic table access tools. If a search result is generated, you can even search for roles that have permissions for the selected alternative applications. To do this, click the Roles button (Use in Single Roles). When using this tool, make sure that even if applications have the same startup properties, there may be different usage characteristics, such as SU22 and SU24 transactions. Both transactions have the same start properties, but are used for different purposes and display different data.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
