Take advantage of roll transport feature improvements
Introduction & Best Practices
Do you want to automatically monitor the security settings of your systems and receive convenient evaluations? We will explain how to use configuration validation. If you have a large SAP system landscape in use, the control of the many different security settings can be complex. You define your security requirements for the entire SAP system landscape; they concern, for example, the settings of the profile parameters, the handling of safety instructions or critical permissions that may only be assigned to emergency users. You can define these requirements in the SAP Solution Manager Configuration Validation application and evaluate compliance with these requirements in all systems.

Suggested values are maintained in the transaction SU24 and delivered through the transaction SU22. Read more about the differences between these two transactions. Maintaining suggestion values via the SU24 transaction is useful if you want to reflect your own requirements or if the values provided by SAP do not meet customer requirements (see Tip 37, "Making sense in maintaining suggestion values"). These proposed values form the basis for the role maintenance credentials in the PFCG transaction. As you know, the suggested values provided by SAP are in the transaction SU22, which are delivered during reinstallation or upgrades as well as in support packages or SAP hints. What is the difference between transactions and how are they used correctly?
Permissions checks
Configuration validation gives you an overview of the homogeneity of your system landscape. Typical criteria are operating system versions, kernel patch levels, and the status of specific transport jobs or security settings. The following security settings can be monitored using configuration validation: Gateway settings, profile parameters, security notes, permissions. As part of the comparison, you can define rules that determine whether the configuration is rule-compliant or not. If the configuration meets the defined values in the rule, it will be assigned Conform status. You can then evaluate this status through reporting.

In order to transport this table entry, you must go to the object list of the transport order in transaction SE09 and manually create an entry there with object key R3TR TABU KBEROBJ. Double-click on the key list, and you will be taken to the care image where you have to create an entry with *. This will transport all entries in the KBEROBJ table starting with a space. You must then move the RESPAREA field to the organisational level. Please follow the instructions in our Tip 49, "Add New Organisation Levels". If you use more than one Cost Centre or Profit Centre hierarchy with inheritance logic for the permissions, you must set this in the Customising cost accounting circles through the transaction OKKP. There you can decide in the year independent basic data which hierarchies you want to use. In the basic data for the year, you then define which hierarchies should be used per fiscal year. You can use up to three hierarchies for entitlement award for cost centres and profit centres.

During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.

Of course, you can always adjust the proposed values according to your requirements.

Not only does the transaction need to be started by the S_TCODE authorization object, but the following conditions must also be met: For certain transactions, there are additional permission checks that are performed before the transaction starts.
