Authorizations in SAP systems: what admins should look out for
Locking and validity of the user account is done through the user administrator and is also valid for other authentication procedures. This means that a login via SSO is not possible for an invalid user or a user with administrator lock. We therefore always recommend that you prevent access to the system by setting the validity of users. Setting validity on assigned roles also prevents the user from performing actions in the system, but does not generally prevent them from logging in.
In order to be able to use the following reports, you must not only have the appropriate authorizations, but also be aware that, depending on your SAP release or Notes, some reports are not yet or no longer available. The following reports were executed with release level 7.50.
Organisationally restrict table editing permissions
If you manage your SAP system landscape via the Central User Administration (ZBV), you must insert SAP Note 1663177 into both the ZBV system and all attached subsidiary systems. In this case, also note that the default user group will be assigned in the daughter systems if no user group has been distributed during the user's installation from the ZBV. In addition, you will receive an error message in the SCUL transaction stating that a user group must be assigned to the user (via the ZBV headquarters). This behaviour is independent of the settings of the distribution parameters for the user group in the SCUM transaction. If you have set the distribution parameters for the user group to Global or Redistribution, the appropriate subsidiary system will reject the changes made to users that do not have a user group in the Central System, and you will receive an error message in the SCUL transaction.
When the FIORI interface is called up, different roles (Fiori groups) are associated with factually related FIORI tiles. As an example, here is the group Master Data in which the FIORI tile "Manage Cost Center" can be found.
Secure your go-live additionally with "Shortcut for SAP systems". You can assign necessary SAP authorizations quickly and easily directly in the system.
When you create users in the SU01 transaction, do you want to automatically pre-occupy certain fields from a data source? Use a new BAdI for which we present an implementation example.
Only with clearly defined responsibilities can the effectiveness of a concept be guaranteed.
