Running the system trace for permissions gradually for each application server is tedious. We will show you how to record permission checks on multiple servers at the same time. If you want to use the System Trace for permissions in a system with multiple application servers, you should note that the Trace can only log and evaluate data per application server at any time. Therefore, if a permission error occurs, permission administrators must first check which application server the user is logged on to with the permission issue and then start the trace on that application server. We give you a guide to record permissions checks on certain application servers, but we also show you a way to use this feature centrally.

To calculate the recommendations, you can filter the SAP notes by their productive system, by the SAP solution, and by the applications and components, by the technical system name, and by the time of publication. The recommendation is issued in the following categories: Security-relevant SAP information, information on performance optimisation, HotNews, information on changes in legal regulations, and notes on corrections in the ABAP system.
Are you already using BAPIs in user care? For example, you can use them to set up a password reset self service. We show you how to do this and what you need to pay attention to. Especially with large system landscapes and systems that are only sporadically used, users often forget their password. Strengthened password rules (e.g. to change a password regularly or to require certain character types to be used), which are supposed to serve security, do their part. Forgotten passwords and the frequently resulting user locks are unfortunately often lost to the user when access to a system is most needed. Unlocking a user and assigning a new password is rarely done in real time, even with large 24-hour support service departments. This problem, which I am sure you are familiar with, does not exactly promote employee satisfaction and productivity. A self-service that uses the Business Application Programming Interfaces (BAPIs) can counteract this.

Are you using the result and market segment statements and need permission checks for combinations of characteristics and key figures not included in the standard? To do this, create specific authorization objects. You can define key figures and result objects (groups of characteristics) for the planning and information system in the result and market segment calculation (CO-PA). You may also want to control permissions by using these characteristics or key numbers. This cannot be reflected with the default authorization objects. Therefore, create authorization objects in the customising of the result invoice.

With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.

In the context of upgrades, the correct permissions must be determined and integrated into the corresponding permission roles.

The SAP_ALL profile is still frequently used there instead of concrete roles.
