Authorization object documentation
To support the safe operation of SAP systems, SAP offers a whole portfolio of services. We present the security services offered by SAP Active Global Support (AGS). The security of an SAP system in operation depends on many factors. There are several security features in the SAP standard, such as user management, authentication and encryption capabilities, web service security features, and the various authorisation concepts. Vulnerabilities in the standard software are also regularly fixed in SAP notes and support packages. You are responsible for the safe operation of your SAP system landscapes; so you need to incorporate these features and fixes into your systems. The AGS Security Services support you by bundling the experiences of the AGS into consolidated best practices. We introduce these services and describe how they help you gain an overview of the security of your operational concept.
For each form of automated derivative of roles, you should first define an organisational matrix that maps the organisational requirements. To do this, you must provide data on each organisation in a structured form.
Authorization objects of the PFCG role
A user is displayed in the results list if one of the two transactions with the corresponding expression is included in its corresponding permission profile. If the logical link were fully linked to OR, a corresponding user would appear in the results list if only one of the four permissions is in the user's master set and thus in the permission profile.
In general, you should note that not all relevant change documents of a system are present in the user and permission management. As a rule, authorisation administration takes place in the development system; Therefore, the relevant proof of amendment of the authorisation management is produced in the development systems. By contrast, you will find the relevant user administration change documents in the production systems; Therefore, you should note that when importing roles and profiles in the production systems, no change documents are written. Only transport logs are generated that indicate that changes have been made to the objects. For this reason, the supporting documents of the development systems' authorisation management are relevant for revision and should be secured accordingly.
Assigning a role for a limited period of time is done in seconds with "Shortcut for SAP systems" and allows you to quickly continue your go-live.
Although it is possible to create profiles manually, it is recommended to work with the profile generator.
Under the item Adjustment of the permission checks (optional) are the transactions SU24 for the maintenance of the value of the proposal, the transaction AUTH_SWITCH_OBJECTS for the global elimination of the authorization objects as well as the transaction SE97 for the maintenance of transaction startup permissions checks (see Tip 76, "Maintain transaction start permissions when calling CALL TRANSACTION").
