SAP authorizations are not exclusively an operational issue - they are also essential for risk management and compliance and represent one of the key audit topics for internal auditing and auditors. In most cases, the different rules according to which the risks of SAP authorizations are assessed are problematic.
Once you have logged in, the permissions associated with your user (via the user account) will be available. Each of your actions leads to the use of runtime versions of the corresponding objects. This also applies to every privilege and role. Runtime versions of rolls are not transportable in SAP HANA. However, in order to achieve a high quality in the development of your applications, you should use a system landscape with development system (DEV), quality assurance system (QAS) and productive system (PRD). To enable you to translate development results to QAD and PRD, SAP HANA Studio provides you with the opportunity to create objects in a (freely definable) Design Time Repository that you can provide and transport via Delivery Units to other systems.

EARLYWATCH: The user EARLYWATCH only exists in the client 066, because it serves the remote maintenance by the SAP support. EARLYWATCH only has display rights for performance and monitoring functions. Safeguard measures: Lock down the user EARLYWATCH and only unlock it when requested by SAP Support. Change the password, assign it to the SUPER user group, and log it with the Security Audit Log.
