Authorization object documentation
The case that the user buffer is not up to date is very rare. The auth/new_buffering profile parameter sets the value 4 to immediately update the permissions, i.e. changes to the user root or roles or profiles, and write them to the USRBF2 database table without requiring a new login. This value is set by default. The fact that the buffer is not up-to-date is recognised by the fact that existing permissions that are not in the buffer are marked in the transaction SU56 with the note "In the root data but not in the user buffer".

If, after an upgrade or after inserting a support package, you have used the SU25 transaction with steps 1 or 2a to bring suggested values to the latest SAP system state, you must restore the suggested values to the customer's organisation levels with the PFCG_ORGFIELD_UPGRADE report. To do this, you must run the report for each field, with the report's search engine showing only the affected organisation levels.

The Permissions check continues again if the table in question is a client-independent table. This is done by checking the S_TABU_CLI authorization object, which decides on maintenance permissions for client-independent tables. For example, the T000 table is a table that is independent of the client and would be validated. To enable a user to maintain this table by using the SM30 transaction, you must maintain the S_TABU_CLI authorization object, in addition to the table permission group or specific table, as follows: CLIIDMAINT: X.

You should archive all document types at the same time intervals; This is especially true for the US_USER and US_PASS archive objects. It is customary to keep the supporting documents between 12 and 18 months, as this corresponds to the retention periods for the revision. For performance reasons, if you want to archive in shorter intervals, you should always archive all archive objects at the same time and store the PFCG and IDENTITY archive object classes in separate archives. In this case, it may be useful to download the archived revision documents back to a shadow database to make them available for faster review. You can use the following reports: RSUSR_LOAD_FROM_ARCH_PROF_AUTH / RSUSR_LOAD_FROM_ARCHIVE. You can also archive the table change logs with the BC_DBLOGS archive object.

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.

The direct consequences are overauthorized users, a lack of overview and dangerous security gaps.

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

During an upgrade, changes and enhancements to permissions checks are included in SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP.
