The Anatomy of SAP Authorization or Documentation on SAP Authorization Objects and Authorization Field Values
Security Automation for HR Authorizations
Before using the system recommendations, we recommend that you implement the corrections in SAP Notes 1554475 and 1577059. It is also necessary that the systems to be managed are connected to the SAP Solution Manager and that in the transaction SMSY were assigned to a productive system and an SAP solution. Then, in the System Recommendations settings, schedule a background job that collects the relevant information about the attached systems. Relevant information is your release and support package stand, as well as SAP notes and their versions. An OSS connection from the SAP Solution Manager, which you have to set up beforehand, will then perform a calculation in the SAP Global Support Backbone, which will determine the necessary information, i.e., that the SAP Solution Manager itself hardly generates any load from the calculation. To automatically check the security level of your systems, you should also schedule this calculation as a background job.

You know that changing your SU24 data involves mixing the roles in question. Previously, the permission administrators had to select roles from, for example, the SUIM transaction to edit them. Often, the remixing of the respective roles is also forgotten. In order to ensure that you can set the mixing mode for the respective roles directly when maintaining the data in the transaction SU24, the function has been provided here with the respective support packages named in SAP Note 1896191. Correction is used to change the mixing mode for PFCG: On/Off/Roles. The function assigns the shuffle mode to the roles, which corresponds to step 2c of the transaction SU25 (see tip 43, "Customise Permissions After an Upgrade"). You can enable this function by using the value Y for the parameter SU2X_SET_FORCE_MIX in the table PRGN_CUST. The status of the mixing mode can be checked by clicking the button Mixing mode for PFCG: Enquire On/Off. By default, this feature is off. The Roles button (Use in Single Roles) identifies all the roles that the selected application contains and displays them directly in the SU24 transaction. You will receive a list of all matching roles in the SUPC transaction by selecting the Also-to-be-matched roles option, and you can now gradually update the roles.
Check for permissions on the old user group when assigning a new user group to a user
In the SAP standard, there is no universally applicable way to automate the mass maintenance of role derivations. We therefore present three possible approaches: 1) Approach to custom development 2) Automated mass maintenance using the Business Role Management (BRM) component of SAP Access Control 3) Use of a pilot note that allows a report for mass update of organisational values in rolls (currently available to selected customers).

To access business objects or execute SAP transactions, a user requires appropriate authorizations, since business objects or transactions are protected by authorization objects. The authorizations represent instances of the generic authorization objects and are defined according to the employee's activities and responsibilities. The authorizations are combined in an authorization profile that belongs to a role. User administrators then assign the appropriate roles to the employee via the user master record so that the employee can use the respective transactions for his or her tasks in the company.

Assigning a role for a limited period of time is done in seconds with "Shortcut for SAP systems" and allows you to quickly continue your go-live.

With the support package named in SAP Note 1860162, the transaction SAIS_SEARCH_APPL is now delivered.

You can also create a user whose ID consists only of alternate spaces.
