Take advantage of roll transport feature improvements
To do this, in the SU24 transaction, open the application you want to customise. To maintain the missing suggestion values, you can start the trace here by clicking on the button Trace. You can of course also use the system trace for permissions via the ST01 or STAUTHRACE transactions. A new window will open. Click here on the Evaluate Trace button and select System Trace (ST01) > Local. In the window that opens you now have the opportunity to restrict the trace to a specific user or to start it directly. To do this, enter a user who will call the application you want to record, and then click Turn on Trace. Now, in a separate mode, you can call and run the application you want to customise. Once you have completed the activities that you need permission checks, i.e. you have finished the trace, you will return to your application in the transaction SU24 and stop the trace by switching off the button trace. To perform the evaluation, click the Evaluate button. To obtain the trace data for each authorization object, select the authorization object you want to customise in the upper-left pane of the Permissions object drop-down list.
In SAP systems, authorization structures grow over the years. If, for example, there is a restructuring in the company or there are new organizations, there is a risk that the authorization concept no longer fits or is implemented correctly.
Goal of an authorization concept
The default authorization roles of the new SAP system for consolidation and planning, SAP Group Reporting, are shown in the following graphic. It does not matter whether the system is accessed via the browser (Fiori Launchpad) or via local access (SAP GUI). The authorization roles shown in the graphic merely indicate the technical specifications preset by SAP. However, these can be used as a starting point and adapted accordingly after a copy has been created.
Permissions in the Permission Tree with status are only deleted if the last transaction associated with the permission has been deleted from the Role menu. Delete and recreate the profile and permissions All permissions are created anew. Previously maintained, changed or manual values will be lost and deleted. The exception here is the values that are filled by the organisation levels.
For the assignment of existing roles, regular authorization workflows require a certain minimum of turnaround time, and not every approver is available at every go-live. With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you have options to assign urgently needed authorizations anyway and to additionally secure your go-live.
Role-based authorizations are flexible and facilitate global implementations of SAP SuccessFactors, e.g. in different national companies.
