Our services in the area of SAP authorizations
This solution is only available via a support package starting with SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 731 and requires a kernel patch. For details on the relevant support packages, see SAP Note 1891583. In principle, user login to the application server can then be restricted by setting the new login/server_logon_restriction profile parameter.
The password lock is not suitable to prevent the login to the system, because it does not prevent the login via single sign-on. Learn how to safely lock the system logon. The SAP system distinguishes several reasons for blocking. Therefore, sometimes there is confusion when a user is still able to log on to the system, e.g. via Single Sign-on (SSO), despite the password lock. We explain the differences between locking passwords, locking and validity of user accounts, and validity of assigned permissions in the following.
Note that the S_TCODE authorization object is always filled with the current transactions from the roles menu. If organisational levels are also included that are no longer required, they will be automatically deleted. If, however, organisational levels are added depending on the transaction, they should be maintained first in the eligibility maintenance.
Standard permissions required for a functionally fully descriptive role should be maintained accordingly. It is recommended to disable and not delete unneeded permissions, or even entire permission branches. Permissions that have been set to Inactive status are not reinstated as new permissions in the permission tree when they are reshuffled, and those permissions are not included in the profile generation process, and thus are not assigned to a role in the underlying profile.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
To analyse such eligibility issues, you must therefore use the appropriate tools, such as the HRAUTH transaction for SAP ERP HCM or the RSECADMIN transaction for SAP BW.
Therefore, it should be assigned to a so-called emergency user at most.
