Assignment of roles
Which challenges cannot be solved with authorization tools alone?
In the transaction SU01, enter a non-existent user ID and click the Create button (F8). The BAdI BADI_IDENTITY_SU01_CREATE is called with the new user ID. Implementation in the BAdI is running. For example, here you can read additional attributes to the new user from an external data source. The data collected within the BAdIs is written into the fields of the transaction SU01. This will show you the new user master set with the pre-filled fields. You can edit the user master record, such as assign roles, or change the pre-populated fields.
Do you want to keep track of what changes have been made to the Central User Management configuration or the distribution parameters for the User Master's Care? You can manage the change documents centrally. The Central User Administration (ZBV) is used to create users, assign roles and distribute them to the respective subsidiary systems. For this, the ZBV has to be configured initially. These include defining the ZBV landscape, i.e. defining the central system and subsidiary systems, adjusting the distribution parameters and transferring users from the subsidiary systems to the central system. You can also configure the ZBV afterwards. For example, you can add subsidiary systems or release them from the ZBV. In the transaction, you can modify SCUM to change the field allocation properties so that fields that were originally globally distributed across the ZBVs are also locally maintainable. All this information about the changes to the ZBV configuration has not been centrally logged.

Configuration validation is a tool that allows systems to be tested against corporate or organisational requirements and regulations. You can find this tool in the Change Management section of the SAP Solution Manager. This allows you to evaluate security-relevant configurations and critical permissions. This is based on the SAP Solution Manager's Configuration and Change Database (CCDB), which stores all details about the configuration of the connected systems. The configuration data is stored in different configuration stores, depending on the type of configuration. You can evaluate the configuration of the operating system, the database, and profile parameters in the ABAP and Java systems. You will also get an overview of the status of transport orders and support packages. You can also track changes to the configurations of the attached systems in the CCDB. You can also graphically evaluate these changes via an end-to-end analysis in SAP BW; contains information on the number of changes per system, the type of changes and the modification date.
Balance: In the settlement transactions, the user is only presented with the supporting documents for which he or she has permission. If the Profit Centre field is not filled in the journal view (Table BSEG), the general ledger view (usually Table FAGLFLEXA) is checked. To compensate, we recommend that you include the Profit Centre in the selection fields of the balancing transactions.
