Ensuring secure administration
Controlling permissions for the SAP NetWeaver Business Client
In the TPC6 transaction, set the periods to be reviewed. In the example shown in the figure below, a group of auditors from North Rhine-Westphalia would be active for the accounting area or cost accounting area (OrgUnit) 1000. In the 2000 accounting area and the 2000 HR accounting area, a Hessen-based payroll tax auditor group would operate.
Many tools that offer to simplify care operations of the transaction PFCG work Excel-based. The complete roll data is stored and processed in Excel. Then the Excel file is uploaded with a special programme and generates roles and role changes. While this all looks very comfortable (and probably is at first), it has its drawbacks in the long run.
AUTHORIZATIONS IN SAP SYSTEMS
In the Output pane, you can view the change documents of a remote subsidiary system, or in the Selection Criteria pane, you can restrict the change documents for the central system (transmit system) or only for specific daughter systems. In the lower part, you can select the distribution parameters that you are interested in changing. The evaluation includes information about all changes in the ZBV configuration and in the attached subsidiary systems, as of the time the corresponding release or support package was inserted into the systems. In addition to the date, time and modifier, the evaluation also contains information about the respective model view, the status of the configured system and the action taken (old value and new value). In our example, you will see changes that have occurred in the SCUA transaction, such as creating a model view and adding subsidiary systems, changes made in the SCUG transaction, such as the user adoption, and changes to the distribution parameters in the SCUM transaction.
The implementation of the time-space validation checks is carried out as an additional time-space filter. For selection criteria outside the valid time period, the message "Not authorised to display data from this time period" appears. However, if the selection criteria are partially within the valid time period, the documents that are outside the time period will be filtered out by the system without the user receiving a notice. In the example shown in the above figure, users of the BP-NRW Verifier Group would be left without comment when calling the vendor list for the period 01.01.2010 to 31.12.2014. This system behaviour can be somewhat irritating.
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.
Finally, we would like to draw your attention to SAP Note 1781328, which provides the report PFCG_ORGFIELD_ROLES_UPD.
