Prevent excessive permissions on HR reporting
If you still have problems with the performance of the evaluation, despite the regular archiving and indexing of the modification documents of your user and permission management, this is probably due to the amount of central change documents. In this case, you also need an archiving concept for other key change document data. SAPHinweis 1257133 describes the procedure for creating such a concept.
The first step to eliminating sprawl in permissions is to prevent it. To do this, administrators should obtain an overview and the assigned authorizations should be checked regularly. This helps to identify problems and incorrectly assigned authorizations at an early stage. The workload monitor can help here. This shows which authorizations users are actually using. The use of authorizations can be analyzed selectively and exported to tables. This also helps to improve existing roles and to create new roles for the authorization model in SAP.
Redesign of SAP® Authorizations
There are many advantages to using an authorization tool for companies. These include: - Managing authorization requests - Distributing and assigning authorizations - Auditing authorizations - Developing authorizations. With the help of authorization tools, it is possible, for example, to drastically reduce the effort required for role creation and authorization management through concrete assignment of SAP system roles.
Organisation levels ensure more efficient maintenance of the eligibility roles. You maintain them once in the transaction PFCG via the button Origen. The values for each entry in this field are entered in the permissions of the role. This means that you can only enter the same values for the organisation level field within a role. If you change the values of the individual fields in the authorization objects independently of the overarching care, you will receive a warning message that you will no longer be able to change this field by clicking the Ormits button and that this individual value will be overwritten when you adjust derived roles. Therefore, we strongly advise you not to carry out individual maintenance of the organisation level fields. If you adhere to this advice, as described above, there can always be only one value range for an organisation level field. For example, the combination of displaying all posting circuits and changing a single posting circle within a role cannot be implemented. Of course, this has implications if you want to upgrade a field to the organisation level. A field that has not previously served as an organisational level can include such entries with different values within a role. You must clean up these entries before you declare a field as an organisation level. In addition, the definition of a field as an organisational level also affects the proposed permissions values of the profile generator.
During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.
To do this, first define what information should be checked.
The Profile Generator allows you to automatically create profiles and assign them to user master records.
