Dissatisfaction and unclear needs in the process
Grant permissions for SAP background processing
Excel-based tools that do not use the PFCG transaction in the background, like eCATT, function almost exclusively on the one-way principle: Simultaneous maintenance of roles in the PFCG transaction is no longer possible, and changes there are overwritten by the tool. This means that all permission administrators must work exclusively with the new solution.
Finally, we would like to draw your attention to SAP Note 1781328, which provides the report PFCG_ORGFIELD_ROLES_UPD. This report enables a mass update of existing role derivations. However, you do not use the concept of the organisational matrix, but you have to store the new organisational values directly when the report is called. Therefore, this function requires a high degree of understanding for the adjustments that are running in the background and is therefore only available as a pilot note. This means that this message must be explicitly requested via a customer message and only then will SAP support release it for you if necessary. It is not currently planned to make the information generally available via a support package.
System trace function ST01
For simplicity, we want to explain this example by using the PFCG_TIME_DEPENDENCY background job. This job calls the report RHAUTUPD_NEW or can be executed directly with the transaction PFUD. Imagine that there's no transactional code for this job yet.
If you use change request management in SAP Solution Manager, you can use the system recommendations in an integrated way. To do this, create an amendment in the system recommendations for the SAP hints to be implemented. To access the system recommendations, you must have permission for the SM_FUNCS object (ACTVT = 03; SM_APPL = SYSTEM_ REC; SM_FUNC =
, such as SECURITY).
If you get into the situation that authorizations are required that were not considered in the role concept, "Shortcut for SAP systems" allows you to assign the complete authorization for the respective authorization object.
Therefore, a new procedure has been introduced in the transaction SU25, which restricts the proposed values to be compared using a time stamp.
You can translate text blocks in permission roles individually using the SE63 transaction.
