Permissions objects already included
Suggested values are maintained in the transaction SU24 and delivered through the transaction SU22. Read more about the differences between these two transactions. Maintaining suggestion values via the SU24 transaction is useful if you want to reflect your own requirements or if the values provided by SAP do not meet customer requirements (see Tip 37, "Making sense in maintaining suggestion values"). These proposed values form the basis for the role maintenance credentials in the PFCG transaction. As you know, the suggested values provided by SAP are in the transaction SU22, which are delivered during reinstallation or upgrades as well as in support packages or SAP hints. What is the difference between transactions and how are they used correctly?
If your user is assigned the privilege ROLE ADMIN (either directly or through a role), you can create your own roles and assign them to users. You can do this by drawing on existing privileges and roles. The privileges themselves are provided by developers with appropriate permissions to create applications, including the privileges they require. Often, as the permission administrator, you do not have the privilege to create privileges. This is also useful because only the application developer can decide what properties the privileges of using the objects in the application should have. The application developer also decides whether his application provides appropriate roles in addition to privileges.
Advantages of authorization concepts
Despite progressive use of web interfaces in the S/4HANA context, batch processing for mass data is still required. However, our experience from customer projects shows that only very few authorization administrators know how to correctly authorize the scenarios. SAP OSS Note 101146 provides a good overview here. In this blog post, we would like to summarize the context for practical use.
Help, I have no permissions (SU53)! You want to start a transaction, but you have no permissions? Or the more complex case: You open the ME23N (show purchase order), but you don't see any purchase prices? Start transaction SU53 immediately afterwards to perform an authorization check. The missing authorization objects will be displayed in "red". You can also run SU53 for other users by clicking on Authorization Values > Other Users in the menu and entering the corresponding SAP user name.
The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
If you want to set up a client-independent user exit, do the same, but use the transaction GCX1.
Slight adjustments are all that is required.
