Authorization concept of AS ABAP
Object S_BTCH_ADM (batch administration authorization)
When you start a report with the ABAP statement SUBMIT REPORT, the system checks the authorization object S_PROGRAM, provided that the program has been assigned to a program authorization group in transaction SE38. If this assignment is not sufficient for your system environment, you can define your own group assignment with the report RSCSAUTH. You must check this assignment after installing Support Packages or upgrades and reassign the reports if necessary.
Users can activate or deactivate processes without affecting other processes. For example, they can activate Succession & Development without affecting position management in Employee Central. With the help of the tool, users always know for what purpose a particular user has been given a particular permission. Basic authorizations, which are identical for every user, are only stored once in a platform role. This ensures that system performance remains optimal.
In the transaction, select SU10 by login data of users
Thanks to the new feature provided with the Support Package mentioned in SAP Note 1847663, it is possible to use trace data from the privilege trace in the SU24 transaction for suggestion value maintenance. The system trace that you can call through the ST01 transaction or the STAUTHTRACE transaction (see also Tip 31, "Optimise Trace Evaluation") is a short-term, client-dependent trace that you can restrict to users or applications.
The passwords of the users are stored in the SAP system as hash values. The quality of the hash values and thus their safety, however, depends on the hash algorithms used. The hash algorithms previously used in SAP systems are no longer considered safe; They can be cracked in a short time using simple technical means. You should therefore protect the passwords in your system in various ways. First, you should severely limit access to the tables where the hash values of the passwords are stored. This applies to the USR02 and USH02 tables and in more recent releases the USRPWDHISTORY table. The best way to assign a separate table permission group to these tables is to do so, as described in Tip 55, "Maintain table permission groups". In addition, you should also control the accesses using the S_TABU_NAM authorization object.
