Data ownership concept
If you want to use reference users and use the User menu, you should also ensure that users also see the role menus associated with reference users. To do this, enter the corrections in SAP Note 1947910. They include two switches for customising in the SSM_CUST table.
As a result, you will get an advanced IMG structure, in our example FF Log settings, which you can access via the transaction SPRO. Finally, you could use the transaction COAT (see SAP Note 1089923) to assign additional attributes to your own tables and reports, for example. For example, this could be relevant for the tax audit and final reports or performance critical.
As part of the use of a HANA database, you should protect both the execution of HANA database functions as well as the reading or altering access to the data stored in the database by appropriate permission techniques. Essential to the permission technique are database objects such as tables and views - which allow access to the stored data - as well as executable procedures and users. The specific HANA-specific permissions assigned to a user are referred to as privileges in the HANA context.
Critical permissions are permissions that allow you to view or modify security-related configurations in the SAP system, or perform activities that are critical from a legal or business perspective. This also includes access to sensitive data, which are e.g. personal. Critical permissions are really critical in themselves and pose a risk only if they get into the wrong hands. In any case, when using critical permissions, you should observe the principle of restricting rights. There are no general definitions of risk; Therefore, each company should define the compliance requirements for itself. Identifying critical SAP permissions is an important task and should be performed in every company. Particular attention should be paid not only to the award of transactions but also to the value characteristics of each of the eligible objects. It is important to mention that preventive regular inspections do not have to be burdensome. However, they will lead to greater transparency and security.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
Are you using the result and market segment statements and need permission checks for combinations of characteristics and key figures not included in the standard? To do this, create specific authorization objects.
At www.sap-corner.de you will also find a lot of useful information on the subject of SAP authorizations.
When you select the row with the parameter transaction you created and click on the Suggest values button, the S_TABU_NAM authorization object is automatically created with the correct suggestion values, i.e. the table name in the transaction SU24.
