Authorizations in SAP systems: what admins should look out for
To define table permissions in the PFCG transaction, it is not necessarily sufficient to specify the generic table display tools, such as the SE16 or SM30 transactions, in the role menu. The proposed values for these transactions are very general and only provide for the use of the S_TABU_DIS or S_TABU_CLI authorization objects. Explicit values must be entered depending on the tables that you have selected for permission. To explicitly grant access to the tables through the S_TABU_NAM authorization object, you can create a parameter transaction for each table access. For example, a parameter transaction allows you to call tables through the SE16 transaction without having to specify the table name in the selection screen because it is skipped. You can then maintain suggestion values for the parameter transaction you created.

If the FIORI interface is then used under SAP S/4HANA, the additional components must also be taken into account here. Authorizations are no longer made available to the user via "transaction entries" in the menu of a role. Instead, catalogs and groups are now used here. These are stored similar to the "transaction entries" in the menu of a role and assigned to the user. However, these catalogs must first be filled with corresponding tiles in the so-called "Launchpad Designer". It is important to ensure that all relevant components (tile component and target assignment component(s)) are always stored in the catalog. The FIORI catalog is used to provide a user with technical access to a tile. A corresponding FIORI group is used to make these tiles visually available to the user for access in the Launchpad.
Standard authorisation
The requirements for the architecture of authorization concepts are as individual as the requirements of each company. Therefore, there is no perfect template. Nevertheless, there are topics that should be considered in an authorization concept.

The results of the evaluation are marked with a coloured symbol. Classification varies for the different eligibility tests. The EWA does not only contain security-related tests and is therefore divided into different sections (e.g. hardware, performance). The test results in these areas are displayed with a traffic light symbol. If one of the tests within a section is indicated in red, the traffic light for that section shall also be set in red.

The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".

Please note that this is only a simulation.

Various solutions are offered on the market that offer this functionality in the same or similar form.
