Security Automation for HR Authorizations
Create permissions for customising
The SAP authorization concept protects transactions, programs, services and information in SAP systems against unauthorized access. Based on the authorization concept, the administrator assigns users the authorizations that determine the actions this user can perform in the SAP system after logging on and being authenticated.
If an authorization system grows too much over the years and there is no structured approach, the result is uncontrolled growth. If companies wait too long with the cleanup, a complete rebuild of the authorization structure or a new concept may make sense. This must be clarified quickly in the event of a cleanup.

Another special feature of the role menu is the maintenance of object-based navigation. If a call to a transaction has been executed through a button in a Web Dynpro application, you must make the Object-based Navigation settings for the transaction to call. To do this, select the appropriate item in the (F4) Help. You may need to ask the developer of the application for navigation information.
The first step in the cleanup process is therefore to find out whether the current authorization concept is sufficient and a cleanup is the best way forward, or whether a rebuild of the authorization concept is necessary. The focus should be on saving the current authorization concept, since rebuilding it takes more time than cleaning it up.
The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
In addition, the SAP Cryptographic Library must be installed; but this is ensured by the required kernel patch.
