Introduction & Best Practices
Due to the changed suggestion values in the SU24 transaction, you must now perform step 2c (roles to verify) to update all roles affected by the changed proposal values. Role changes are only customised! You will get a list that shows all the roles you need to edit. If you have more than one client to maintain roles, you must also do this in the other client.
Business objects to which companies refer authorizations are defined in the system as authorization objects. For individual conditions, SAP delivers the authorization objects F_FICO_IND and F_FICO_AIN. With F_FICO_IND you can define which individual conditions are checked when processing the contract depending on the defined authorization fields and their characteristics. Using the authorization object F_FICO_AIN, companies can define whether and how individual conditions are to be checked when processing in the BAPI channel depending on the defined authorization fields and their characteristics.
Perform Risk Analysis with the Critical Permissions Report
Alternatively, you can maintain this information from the SE93 transaction by selecting a transaction first. You will then be presented with the list of all transactions that can be called from this transaction by using the Tools > Called Transaction Permission menu path. The implementation of SAP Note 1870622 provides a feature enhancement for the SE97 transaction. Among other things, there is the new button Modification Synchronisation. So far, changes in the SE97 transaction have been overwritten by inserting support packages or upgrades. With the modification comparison it is now possible to match your changes with the default values.
Another function of this transaction is to find transactions based on generic table access transactions. Here you can check whether there are parameter or variant transactions for a given table, or for a particular view, for which you can set up permissions, instead of allowing access to the table through generic table access tools. If a search result is generated, you can even search for roles that have permissions for the selected alternative applications. To do this, click the Roles button (Use in Single Roles). When using this tool, make sure that even if applications have the same startup properties, there may be different usage characteristics, such as SU22 and SU24 transactions. Both transactions have the same start properties, but are used for different purposes and display different data.
Assigning a role for a limited period of time is done in seconds with "Shortcut for SAP systems" and allows you to quickly continue your go-live.
As with the SAP_APP profile, all permissions are included here, except the base permissions and the HCM permissions.
Read in the two-part blog series why an authorization concept should be considered as early as possible in a project phase - especially when converting to SAP S/4HANA.
