Trace after missing permissions
Are you using SAP NetWeaver Business Client instead of SAP GUI? The arrangement of the applications on the screen is controlled by PFCG roles. The SAP NetWeaver Business Client (NWBC) is an alternative to SAP GUI for access to SAP applications. This allows you to centrally access applications that reside in different SAP systems and have different UI technologies. The NWBC enables you to call not only transactions, but also Web-Dynpro applications and external service applications. In this tip, we will show you how to use PFCG roles to control the design of the NWBC user interface.
However, a full SAP security audit does not end here. In addition, the auditor examines whether the four important concepts of SAP Security, namely the data ownership concept, the proprietary development concept, the authorization concept and the emergency user concept, meet the requirements. Each of them should represent a fully formulated document that, on the one hand, contains all the target specifications for the respective topic and, on the other hand, is consistent with the actual state found during the audit.

DDIC: DDIC is the only user able to log in or make changes to the ABAP Dictionary during installations and release changes. It is also used in the client 000, e.g. for certain jobs or Unicode conversions. DDIC exists in all clients except 066. Safeguard measures: In all systems (except for client 000 due to upgrade features), set DDIC to the System user type. If necessary, you can switch it back to a dialogue user using the Emergency User. Change the password, assign the user to the SUPER user group, and log it with the Security Audit Log.
Roles reflect access to data depending on the legitimate organisational values. This information should be part of the naming convention, as these roles differ only in their organisational but not in their functional form.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
In addition, the definition of a field as an organisational level also affects the proposed permissions values of the profile generator.
The data owner now checks whether the person making the request and the person to be authorized are at all authorized to do so, what data would be affected, whether an SAP user already exists to whom new roles can be assigned and old ones revoked, whether data access can be limited in time, and so on.
