SAP S/4HANA® migration audit
What to do when the auditor comes - Part 1: Processes and documentation
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.

You can schedule background jobs in the SM36 and SA38 transactions, but also in a variety of application transactions. It is important to know that special permissions are not necessary for the installation, modification, etc. of your own jobs. An exception is the release of background jobs; it is protected by a permission. Permissions are also required for the activities on other users' background jobs, and the following authorization objects are available in SAP backend processing: S_BTCH_JOB controls the access rights to other users' jobs. S_BTCH_NAM allows you to schedule programmes under a different user ID. S_BTCH_ADM grants parent permissions that are usually only required by administrators.
Immediate authorization check - SU53
Remove improperly defined SAP Orgebene ($CLASS): This function deletes the $CLASS organisational level that was incorrectly delivered with the GRCPlug-in (Governance, Risk and Compliance). Use the test mode of the report to look at possible corrections in advance.

Describing all configuration options would exceed the scope of this tip. If you need explanations about a customising switch that are not listed here, look for the relevant note about the SSM_CID table. All settings described here can be made via the transaction SM30. You must consider that all settings in the SSM_CUST, SSM_COL, and PRGN_CUST tables are client-independent; only the settings of the USR_CUST table depend on the client.

However, if your Identity Management system is currently not available or the approval path is interrupted, you can still assign urgently needed authorizations with "Shortcut for SAP systems".

In case of a P_ABAP permission, the usual checks for authorization objects, such as P_ORGIN or P_ORGINCON, will no longer take place or will be simplified.

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

A general grant of permissions, such as for the SE16 or SA38 transaction, is not recommended.
