Compensating measures for segregation of duties conflicts

Permissions must have both identical maintenance status (default, maintained, modified, manual) and an identical active status (active or inactive). Exceptions represent changed permissions and manual permissions; these are summarised when the active status is identical.
Step 2d (Show Modified Transaction Codes) lists all roles that have been found to use an old transaction code. Sometimes, new transaction codes replace old transaction codes. In this step you have the option to exchange the transaction codes. Once you have completed the upgrade of the Eligibility proposal values, you will be given the option in Step 3 (Transport of the Customer Tables). Transport your permissions suggestions in your system landscape.
These single roles can also be combined into composite roles. I recently discussed the special features of this in the article "SAP Authorizations Mass Maintenance Single Role Assignments in Composite Roles per Function Module (FuBa) or Transaction Code", but here I would rather discuss the roles and assignment of authorization object field values in role maintenance with the PFCG for an authorization overview.
The high manual maintenance effort of derived roles during organisational changes bothers you? Use the variants presented in this tip for mass maintenance of role derivations. Especially in large companies, it often happens that a worldwide, integrated ERP system is used, for example, for accounting, distribution or purchasing. You will then have to limit access to the various departments, for example to the appropriate booking groups, sales organisations or purchasing organisations. In the permission environment, you can work with reference roles and role derivations in such cases. This reduces your administrative overhead for maintaining functional permissions and reduces the maintenance effort for role derivations to adapt the so-called organisational fields. However, maintaining the organisational fields can mean enormous manual work for you, as the number of role derivations can become very large. For example, if your company has 100 sales organisations and 20 sales roles, you already have 2,000 role outlets. Here we present possible approaches to reduce this manual effort.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
A manual comparison of role texts in an SAP system landscape with ZBV is very annoying.
This way, you can again erase your access restrictions, which were previously painstakingly defined in a permission concept.
