Automatically pre-document user master data
You can't keep an eye on everything. Therefore, avoid that your colleagues do not assign users to a user group, and thus ensure that the user master data maintenance permissions check is correct. You do not want a user without a user group to be able to be created in your SAP systems? Users without a user group can be changed by all administrators with permission for any user group. You should also prevent incomplete permission checks when assigning roles and profiles to users without a permission group. Because it is possible to assign roles and permissions to a user first, and then assign a user group that does not have permission to assign roles and profiles. Finally, do you want to change the user group for an existing user without having permission for the new user group? In the following section we will show you how to secure your user master data maintenance.

In Step 2b (Customised Proposal Values), you must manually adjust the entries that you manually changed in the SU24 transaction in the initial release. This will start the SU24 transaction in upgrade mode, and you can step by step through all applications and match the changes. If you have created custom organisational levels (ormits), you must restore them at this point using the PFCG_ORGFIELD_UPGRADE report. The report must be called for each organisational level. Only the organisation levels that you create are displayed through the Value Help. SAP Note 727536 lists questions and answers about the use of customer-specific organisational levels.
What to do when the auditor comes - Part 2: Authorizations and parameters
At the latest, if it is no longer possible to clearly define which transactions should be included in which roles and which roles a user requires, a correction is necessary. It must be clear which rights are required for the individual tasks in the system.

Communication users are also intended for use by people who log on to the SAP system from outside via RFC call. Therefore, dialogue is not possible. If the password is set by the administrator, it will be assigned Initial status. However, an RFC call does not prompt the user to change the password. It therefore often retains this status, even if the user has the possibility to change the password by calling a function block (then: Status Productive). The password rules apply to this type of user. However, this is often not noticed in practice, as password rules for initial passwords are less used.

During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.

You can do this by assigning permissions through the RESPAREA field, which is used in certain authorization objects in the controlling.

Once a permission concept has been created, the implementation in the system begins.
