In the event that such conflicts nevertheless arise, regular checks should be established as part of an internal control system. Furthermore, the authorization concept includes content such as the integration of the data owner, security-relevant system settings, specifications for maintaining authorization default values (transaction SU24) and documentation requirements.
Since developer authorizations correspond to full authorization, they should only be assigned restrictively. This applies above all to the authorization for "debugging with replace" (see "Law-critical authorizations"). The risk of incorrectly assigned developer authorizations has also increased due to the elimination of additional protection via developer and object keys in S/4 HANA systems (see, among other things, SAP Note 2309060). Developer authorizations for original SAP objects should therefore only be granted here upon request in order to avoid unauthorized modifications. If developer keys are still relevant in the existing SAP release, the existing developer keys in table DEVACCESS should first be checked and compared with the users intended for development.
In-house role maintenance
The Security Audit Log now logs the table or view name and the scheduled activity of external table access via RFC connections; a new message type has been defined. You can find this fix and an overview of the required support packages in SAP Note 1539105.
SAP authorizations control the access options of users in an SAP system - for example, to personal data. Secure management of this access is essential for every company. This makes authorization concepts, authorization tools and automated protection of the SAP system all the more important in order to meet the stringent legal requirements with little administrative effort.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
It should be noted, however, that the system writes all authorization errors of the user into the memory area of SU53.
In the final step, the permission administrator can create the PFCG role or must remix the existing PFCG roles.
