This function was not part of the standard delivery. With the support package named in SAP Note 1860162, the transaction SAIS_SEARCH_APPL is now delivered. This transaction allows you to verify that other applications have startup properties similar to those available in a particular application. For example, we searched for applications with similar functionality as the PPOME transaction provides.
For an authorization concept, a clear goal must first be defined that is to be achieved with the help of the concept. This should list which regulatory requirements the respective SAP system must fulfill and the associated authorization concept must take into account. In this way, the legal framework conditions are defined. In addition, uniform naming conventions should be used because, on the one hand, many things cannot be changed after the initial naming and, on the other hand, this ensures searchability in the SAP system. Clearly defined responsibilities ensure the effectiveness of a concept. Specific persons must be named or at least roles defined in a separate section. A chapter should be dedicated to the process for user management. Here, it must be described how users obtain existing SAP authorizations, how new users are integrated into the SAP system, and who is responsible for approving authorizations. The chapter on the process for authorization management defines who is allowed to create and edit which roles and who is responsible for the development of various related processes. The chapter on special authorizations describes processes and special features in the area of non-dialog operations. These include job management and interface convention. Other administrative authorizations can also be described. The chapter on role concept explains how business requirements are transferred to a technical role. The role concept takes on a special significance, since it describes the actual mapping of business roles to the technical roles and thus to the authorizations in SAP.
Permissions and User Root Sets Evaluations
TMSADM: The user TMSADM serves the communication between SAP systems in the transport management system and is automatically created in the client 000 when they are configured. TMSADM only has the permissions to access the common transport directory, view in the change and transport management system, and the necessary RFC permissions. Safeguard measures: Change the user's passwords in each client. There is the report TMS_UPDATE_PWD_OF_TMSADM, which you have to start in the client 000. This is only possible if you have administrator privileges on all systems in the landscape and the password rules of the systems are compatible. After the report has been successfully passed, all TMSADM users of the landscape in the client 000 and their destinations have the same new password.
The role menu of the PFCG role now consists of folders that represent all logical links within a scope start page, and external services that represent the logical links and the area start pages themselves. This means that any external service listed in the Role Menu is eligible for a Area Start Page or Logical Link. If such an external service is removed from the role menu and the PFCG role is generated, the user of this PFCG role does not have permissions to view this external service (see screenshot next page). You will find duplicate, maybe even triple, entries from external services. These are mainly found in the folders of the homepage and under GENERIC_OP_LINKS. You can delete them without any concern, because an external service for a permission must appear only once in the Role menu. For a better overview, it is also useful to rename the external services or folders as they are shown in the SAP CRM Web Client.
Assigning a role for a limited period of time is done in seconds with "Shortcut for SAP systems" and allows you to quickly continue your go-live.
However, our experience from customer projects shows that only very few authorization administrators know how to correctly authorize the scenarios.
These files are called *.pse and cred_v2.
