Detect critical base permissions that should not be in application roles
SAP Data Analytics
You assign a reference user to a dialogue user by registering the reference user for additional rights in the SU01 transaction on the Roles tab in the Reference User field. If you are using Central User Administration (ZBV), the assignment applies to all connected systems. If the reference user does not exist in one of the systems, the mapping is ignored. However, the use of reference users also creates risks. This makes it easier to summarise permissions because it is difficult to keep track of the assigned permissions. In SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.0 and above, reference users are considered in the reports of the user information system.

You will be aware that you do not necessarily have to move in the Customer Name Room when assigning names of PFCG roles and therefore have a lot of freedom. The only limitation here is that you may not use the namespace of the roles that are interpreted by SAP. First, you must agree on the form of the names. A fundamental decision is to define the language in which the PFCG roles must be maintained. Although this does not necessarily have an influence on the role name, since it is the same in all languages, you will certainly have descriptive elements in your role name. The role description and the long text are also depending on the language. It is therefore useful to start the roles in the language which is also used most frequently, and also to cultivate the descriptive texts first in this language. If roles are required in different languages, you can translate the texts.

SNC secures communication with or between ABAP systems, but there are also many web-based applications in SAP system landscapes. They communicate via the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). The data is also transmitted unencrypted when communicating via HTTP; Therefore, you should switch this communication to Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS). HTTPS uses the encryption protocol Transport Layer Security (TLS) for secure data transfer on the Internet. You should therefore set up HTTPS for all users to access the Web. For communication between SAP systems, you should use HTTPS if you think the data transfer could be intercepted. You should either set up HTTPS on individual components of the infrastructure (such as proxies), or the ABAP systems should support HTTPS or TSL directly. Details of the configuration can be found in the SAPHinweis 510007.

HR authorizations are a very critical issue in many companies. On the one hand, HR administrators should be able to perform their tasks - on the other hand, the protection of employees' personal data must be ensured. Any error in the authorization system falls within the remit of a company's data protection officer.

During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.

This check is necessary because sending an encrypted e-mail is cancelled if more than one valid certificate to an e-mail address is found.

At you will also find a lot of useful information on the subject of SAP authorizations.

The fact that the buffer is not up-to-date is recognised by the fact that existing permissions that are not in the buffer are marked in the transaction SU56 with the note "In the root data but not in the user buffer".
