Customising User and Permissions Management
In the SAP standard, there is no universally applicable way to automate the mass maintenance of role derivations. We therefore present three possible approaches: 1) Approach to custom development 2) Automated mass maintenance using the Business Role Management (BRM) component of SAP Access Control 3) Use of a pilot note that allows a report for mass update of organisational values in rolls (currently available to selected customers).
We now want to describe the necessary settings in the sending application using the example of encrypted sending of initial passwords. To implement this requirement, you can use the BAdI BADI_IDENTITY_UPDATE. This BAdI is also only available via a support package starting from SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.31. For details on the relevant support packages, see SAP Note 1750161. To implement the BAdIs, use the transaction SE18; there you can also see the example class CL_EXM_IM_IDENTITY_UPDATE. For the BAdI BADI_ IDENTITY_UPDATE, you must implement the SAVE method to the IF_BADI_IDENTITY_UPDATE interface.
SAP authorizations: Recommendations for setting up, monitoring and controlling
Since the role menu has been adjusted, the PFCG role must now also be adjusted. To do this, go to the Permissions tab and select the Change Permissions Data button. If you are using Expert mode, make sure that the Alten Stand default is read and match with new data. Now the new suggested values for this external service are loaded. After you have maintained the PFCG role, you can generate the profile and insert it immediately.
Applications use the ABAP statement AUTHORITY-CHECK in the source code of the program to check whether the user has the appropriate authorizations and whether these authorizations are defined appropriately, that is, whether the user administrator has assigned the values required by the programmer for the fields. In this way, you can also protect transactions that are indirectly accessed by other programs. AUTHORITY-CHECK searches the profiles specified in the user master record for authorizations for the authorization object specified in the AUTHORITY-CHECK statement. If one of the determined authorizations matches one of the specified values, the check was successful.
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".
This PFCG role could contain all the basic permissions a user must have in SAP CRM.
