Evaluation of the authorization check SU53
Testing Permission
How do I make an authorization trace on a user (STAUTHTRACE)? With the authorization trace you can record which authorization objects are used by a user. This helps, for example, in the creation of suitable roles: - Call the transaction STAUTHTRACE - Specify the desired user and start the trace - Let the user call his transaction - Stop the trace (Important, do not forget!) - Evaluate the results.

Look closely at the security advisory so that you can identify the affected programmes or functions and schedule appropriate application tests. Use a test implementation in the SNOTE transaction to identify additional SAP hints that are required for a security advisory and may also contain functional changes.
Authorizations are assigned to users in SAP systems in the form of roles. The goal is to create a system that is as secure as possible and to keep the complexity and number of roles as low as possible. This is the only way to achieve a balanced cost-benefit ratio.

To make the most of the time stamping process, you should fill the time stamp tables in the legacy system before upgrading. Implement SAP Note 1599128. With this correction, the report SU25_INITIALIZE_TSTMP is delivered, which allows to write the current timestamps of your data from the transaction SU22 into the respective timestamp tables USOBT_TSTMP and USOBX_TSTMP. After the upgrade, you will have a reference date for your SU22 data, which you can use to compare with the SAP proposal data shipped for the new release. Setting the timestamps in the legacy release reduces the effort required to complete step 2a, because only those applications whose SU22 data has been modified are matched. If you have not filled the timestamp tables in the old release, the tables in your new release will be empty. In this case, in step 2a, the content of the SAP proposal values will be compared to the customer proposal values, regardless of a timestamp.

If you get into the situation that authorizations are required that were not considered in the role concept, "Shortcut for SAP systems" allows you to assign the complete authorization for the respective authorization object.

Then you compare the settings of your SAP systems with this target system on a daily basis and get an overview of the deviations.

The role menu of the PFCG role now consists of folders that represent all logical links within a scope start page, and external services that represent the logical links and the area start pages themselves.
