Further training in the area of authorization management
User Management
You should then enable the latest version of the hash algorithms by setting the login/password_downwards_compatibility profile parameter to 0. This is required because SAP systems maintain backward compatibility by default. This means that, depending on your base release, either the new hash algorithms will not be used when storing passwords, or additional outdated hash values of passwords will be stored. You should then check to see if there are any old hash values for passwords in your system and delete them if necessary. Use the report CLEANUP_PASSWORD_HASH_VALUES.

Changes to SAP user data should be uncomplicated and fast. Users can make requests for SAP systems themselves. In exceptional and emergency situations, SAP users should be assigned extended authorizations quickly and for a limited period of time. Simplified assignment and control of exception authorizations in SAP systems is required. You can freely and flexibly determine the duration of these authorization assignments. Decisions can be controlled and monitored across systems. Whether it's recertification of SAP users, vacation requests or birthday wishes: all these things can now be processed and managed centrally in one place.
Existing permissions
Most client programmes are additions to the standard functionalities or variations of the same. Therefore, when you create your own programmes, you can follow the eligibility checks of the standard programmes or reuse the permissions checks used there.

You can influence the default behaviour of various transactions and parameters with the customising switches for the maintenance of Session Manager and Profile Generator as well as the user and permission management. The SSM_CID table gives you an overview of all customising switches supplied by SAP, specifying the relevant tables SSM_CUST, SSM_COL, PRGN_CUST and USR_CUST. The short description of the customising switch refers to the relevant and current SAP references. The actual settings can be found in the SSM_CUST, PRGN_CUST and USR_CUST tables.

Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".

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.

For each required transaction, you decide in detail which groups of people are allowed access.
