Goal of an authorization concept
Permissions with status
The More node details area allows you to configure additional settings. For example, by activating the Default Page setting, the selected transaction (in our example MM03) is called first when the parent folder (in our example of the Material Stems folder) is retrieved. The Invisible setting means that the transaction is not visible in the menu, but can be called from a button.

Insert SAP Note 1171185 into your ZBV system. With this notice, the report RSUSR_SYSINFO_LICENSE is delivered, which retrieves and displays the user types from the systems connected to the ZBV. In addition, however, SAP Note 1307693, which contains new functionalities of licence measurement, must be installed on the subsidiary systems connected to the ZBV. In addition, you may need to extend the permissions of the users in the RFC connections to the ZBV's subsidiary systems by the permissions to the S_RFC object with the SUNI and SLIM_REMOTE_USERTYPES function groups. If the SAPHinkling 1307693 is not installed on a subsidiary system, or the RFC user's permissions have not been adjusted accordingly, the RSUSR_SYSINFO_LICENSE report in the application log (transaction SLG1) will issue a warning.
Controlling file access permissions
For table logging, it must be ensured that SAP® Note 112388 (tables requiring logging) is fully implemented and that all tables containing financially relevant data are also included in the logging. Of course, this also applies to all Z-tables! As last point of the important parameter settings are those for the definition of the password settings. Here, it should be ensured that the parameters are also set up in accordance with the company's specifications. However, the check should not only focus on the global settings that are valid for all users, but should also include all those users who have been assigned their own security policies. Especially for these, an appropriate justification must be available in writing.

In compliance with the minimum principle and the separation of functions, the roles used must be defined, along with specifications for their naming, structure and use. Close attention should also be paid to the application and allocation process in order to prevent authorization conflicts, which arise primarily as a result of employees' changing or expanding areas of responsibility.

For the assignment of existing roles, regular authorization workflows require a certain minimum of turnaround time, and not every approver is available at every go-live. With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you have options to assign urgently needed authorizations anyway and to additionally secure your go-live.

This accumulation is bound to result in users being able to perform more actions than you would like as the permission administrator.

You can use the system trace function (transaction ST01) to record the authorization checks in all modes, if the trace and the transaction to be traced run on the same application server.
