SAP Authorizations - A Common Perspective of Developers and Consultants
Personally, I'm a big fan of the role-based authorizations in SAP SuccessFactors and I'm glad the system has such extensive capabilities. To review your need for action in this area, I advise you to ask yourself the following questions: Do you know which users get which SAP authorizations and why? Can you explain the concept to your data protection officer? Is it easy for you to introduce a new process because you know how the authorizations work? If you have to answer "no" here (several times), I recommend you to dedicate yourself to the topic. It will make their lives easier in the future. If you need help with this, feel free to contact us!
The convenience of configuring and evaluating the Security Audit Log has been improved. For this purpose, the maximum number of marked messages in the detail selection has been increased to 40 events, a forward navigation for the displayed objects has been added and the details selection in transaction SM20 has been supplemented with the technical event names. You will find the corrections and an overview of the required support packages in SAP Note 1963882.
A major advantage of SAP SuccessFactors is flexibility. Different project teams can implement and use several modules, processes or add-ons in a short time. The processes can be optimized again and again. A central basis for extensively digitized processes are structured specifications that regulate system access and control access rights. In this context, SAP offers the concept of role-based authorizations. Role-based SAP authorizations grant different groups of people different options for action and views in the system, e.g., regulate access to salary data. Role-based authorizations are flexible and facilitate global implementations of SAP SuccessFactors, e.g. in different national companies. Once implemented, roles and their authorizations can be quickly rolled out to the new region. The roles do not have to be completely reconfigured each time. Slight adjustments are all that is required.
When your selection is complete, just exit the image with the green button. You will now arrive at the Details Selector screen, where you can select the selection fields and the output fields (the List Field Selector and Selection Fields tabs) of your table combination. We select the authorization objects and values as selection and the role name, and the user as output fields. Done! Now the query can be started with the Run button. In the background, the system creates a programme that builds the join. As a result, a selection screen appears. Enter"S_TCODE"as object and"SCC4"as field value (we only have one field for this object). When you click Run, all users and the triggers are output to you.
For the assignment of existing roles, regular authorization workflows require a certain minimum of turnaround time, and not every approver is available at every go-live. With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you have options to assign urgently needed authorizations anyway and to additionally secure your go-live.
