Using suggestion values and how to upgrade
Configure Security Audit Log
Add missing modification flags in SU24 data: This function complements the modification flag for entries that have changed since the last execution of step 2a in the transaction SU25, i.e., where there is a difference to the SAP data from the transaction SU22. The flag is thus set retrospectively, so that no customer data is accidentally overwritten with step 2a due to missing modification flags.
Do you have considerable care effort due to additional roles that you cannot deduce? Create a new organisational level to solve your problems. In the SAP system, you can create derived roles for specific fields in authorization objects. This is possible only if these fields are organisation levels. Unfortunately, not all fields that you need as an organisation level are laid down in the standard as such, such as the cost centre. It may also be that you only use one sales organisation in your company and would therefore like to define the sales office. So there are several reasons why you want to define a field as an organisational level. We will explain how this works and what you need to consider.
Which challenges cannot be solved with authorization tools alone?
The user administration process, i.e. user creation, modification and deactivation, should on the one hand be available in written documented form, either as a separate document or as part of the authorization concept documented in writing, and on the other hand also be carried out in accordance with the documentation. Therefore, a reconciliation should be performed on two levels: on the one hand, it should be ensured that the documentation is up to date and, on the other hand, it should be checked whether the process was also followed in the fiscal year to be audited. Possible deviations should already be prepared argumentatively, special cases can always occur that deviate from the actual process. However, these should be documented in a comprehensible manner so that an external auditor, such as the auditor's IT auditor, can check the plausibility. All documentation should be provided with the essential information (creator, date, version, etc.) and be in a format that cannot be changed (usually PDF). Additional documentation can also be output from the ticket system, provided that the process is consistently documented via the ticket system.
The filter setting in transaction SM19 determines which events should be logged. In addition, you must activate the Security Audit Log via the profile parameters in the transaction RZ11 and make technical settings. For an overview of the profile parameters for the Security Audit Log, see the following table. The values specified in the table are a suggestion, but not the default values. The Security Audit Log is not fully configured until both the profile parameters and an active filter profile have been maintained. Note that the Security Audit Log has two configuration options: static and dynamic configuration. Static configuration stores filter settings persistent in the database; they are only applied on a system boot. The filter settings are used as the current configuration for each subsequent startup and should therefore always be maintained. The dynamic configuration allows you to change the settings in the running mode. The dynamic configuration is used when settings need to be adjusted temporarily. Here you can change all filter settings, but not the number of existing filters. Dynamic configuration will remain active until the next boot.
However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".
Additional permission check on the S_RZL_ADM authorization object: For security reasons, an additional permission check is performed on the S_RZL_ADM authorization object for special PSE (Personal Security Environment) files with access type 01 (Create).
However, we recommend using this role only for development and test systems.
