Features of the SAP authorization concept
Permissions are often not restricted because there is often no information about how the object should be shaped. The identification of the required functional components is often considered to be too burdensome and the risks from a lack of limitation are considered to be too low.
With the new transaction SAIS, you will enter the AIS cockpit, where you will be able to evaluate the various audit structures related to the topic. When performing an audit, under Audit Structure, select one of the existing structures and select a check number in the appropriate field. Audit structures may be subject to different audits; Therefore, you must always select an audit first. To do this, select a verification number or create a new audit. After you select the audit, the audit tree will appear in the cockpit. You can now perform the individual steps of the audit along the definition in the audit tree.
Make sense in maintaining proposal values
It is best if the persons responsible for the system develop role descriptions with their departments in advance and document them outside SAP SuccessFactors (e.g., as in Fig. 2). In case of queries, they can use this basis to explain exactly why someone has been given a certain authorization. The role descriptions and the report help to work in a DSGVO-compliant manner. Since the report updates automatically, companies have no additional effort to document the changes - one less unloved (and often "forgotten") task.
Without generic table logging, certain changes in the system are not traceable. Learn how to turn on table logging in the system for a large set of tables. The SAP system writes change documents for most changes - but not all. Specifically, changes to tables in which the customising is performed are not recorded in the modification documents. This may lead to a lack of comprehensibility of changes. Avoid this by basically enabling table logging and then setting logging for specific additional tables. You should always enable table logging for all clients. However, during a release upgrade it may be necessary to temporarily disable table logging.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
Don't simplify your entitlement concept before you know all the requirements, but first ask yourself what you need to achieve.
Furthermore, the statistical data of other users (user activities, such as executed reports and transactions) should be classified as sensitive, since it may be possible to draw conclusions about work behavior using this data.
