Permission implementation
SAP Security Automation
Another important factor that should be considered in an authorization concept is to use a uniform naming convention because, on the one hand, many things cannot be changed after the initial naming and, on the other hand, this ensures searchability in the SAP system. In addition, the preset authorization roles of the SAP system should never be overwritten or deleted, but only copies of them should be created, which can then be adapted as desired.

Security notes correct vulnerabilities in SAP standard software that can be exploited internally or externally. Use the System Recommendations application to keep your systems up to date. SAP software is subject to high quality assurance standards - however, security vulnerabilities may occur in the code. These vulnerabilities can, in the worst case scenario, open the door to external and internal intruders. It is not difficult to find guidance on exploiting these vulnerabilities in relevant internet forums. A permission concept is only as good as the code that performs the permission checks. If no permission check occurs in your code, the permission concept cannot restrict access. For these reasons, SAP has introduced Security Patch Day (every other Tuesday of the month), which will allow you to better plan for implementing the security advisories. In addition, you can use the System Recommendations application in the SAP Solution Manager to get a detailed, cross-system overview of the security advice you need. The system status and the SAP hints already implemented are taken into account. With this support, ensure that your system landscape is at the current security level.
Deletion of change documents
Especially in complex and multi-level system landscapes, roles may be assigned to a user twice. In addition, roles may also have expired due to the specification of a validity period. To keep your role concept and your user administration maintainable and clean, it is recommended to delete these obsolete roles. You can do this by clicking on the report PRGN_COMPRESS_TIMES. This program is also available via the PFCG under the system tab "Utilities" and category "Mass adjustment".

You have read that it is possible to perform mass activities, such as mass roll-offs, using standard means. This is all too complicated for you, and you are still looking for simple solutions for role maintenance? I'm sure you'll have a look at tools from SAP partners that promise to help. In this context, we would like to give you some more information in this tip. There is a very practical occasion: We have too often found a "broken" authorisation system with SAP customers, caused by the incorrect application of additional programmes. Sometimes, the role content was misaligned and the suggestion values were not neatly maintained, so at some point the permission administrators couldn't figure out what to do. Therefore, you should check very well whether the tool you are considering is actually suitable for your purposes.

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

In SAP systems you always have the possibility to integrate custom developments.

The website offers a lot of useful information about SAP authorizations.

If transactions are changed in the role menu of a single role, this option is automatically suggested to the operator.
