SAP Authorization Trace - Simple Overview of Authorizations
Determine Permissions Error by Debugging
Here I had to look for a moment at which point for SAP key users and not only for the SAP Basis in the SAP system an authorization is callable and may like to take this as an opportunity to write here in the article a few basics on the "anatomy" of SAP authorizations. To access the SAP system, the first thing you need is an SAP user ID (User). The user maintenance transaction SU01 (or SU01D) can be used to assign roles (from which profiles are derived) in addition to the (initial) password and personal data.
Once you have logged in, the permissions associated with your user (via the user account) will be available. Each of your actions leads to the use of runtime versions of the corresponding objects. This also applies to every privilege and role. Runtime versions of rolls are not transportable in SAP HANA. However, in order to achieve a high quality in the development of your applications, you should use a system landscape with development system (DEV), quality assurance system (QAS) and productive system (PRD). To enable you to translate development results to QAD and PRD, SAP HANA Studio provides you with the opportunity to create objects in a (freely definable) Design Time Repository that you can provide and transport via Delivery Units to other systems.
Optimization of SAP licenses by analyzing the activities of your SAP users
The evaluation performance of the Security Audit Log was optimised from SAP NetWeaver 7.31. For this extension, you need a kernel patch. For the fixes and an overview of the required support packages, see SAP Note 1810913.
Software license management is essential to get an accurate overview of all SAP transactions. We provide you with a transaction database in which the transactions are evaluated with named user license types. Your advantage: the actual usage of your SAP users is matched with the transaction database. "SAP direct access" analyzes the licenses for actual usage and classifies the critical cases. With SAP license optimization we maintain your individual license contracts and compare the results with LAW. We can point out discrepancies, including drill-down to user/client level, directly.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
This is possible only if these fields are organisation levels.
Some core elements of the authorization concept to be created can be defined in advance.
