SU01 Creating and Maintaining Users In SAP

Mart Leepin

Mart Leepin 3092991

SU01 Purpose Used for creation of a user master, enabling log on and a level of interaction in SAP. SU01 would be used in an administrative or support role. Tasks could be: Set up of new users for production or test environments; Maintenance of user master information dependant upon internal employee movements within a business. Roles, Profiles and Authorization In our scenario we will be creating a new dialogue user, then allocating a role to enable the new user to fulfil their specific business activities. In SAP activities are protected by authorization. Access is dependent upon specific corresponding authorization, which is determined by the types of activities within your role. When a role is created a profile is also generated, it is the profile that contains the required authorizations. Authorization is important as it ensures segregation of duties, therefore an enhanced level of security. Requirements In order to access SU01 a user with a broad profile is required: SAP* or BCUSER.

Roles: Authorization in SAP Transactions, programs, and services in SAP systems are protected from unauthorized access. To access business objects or execute SAP transactions, a user requires corresponding authorizations, as business objects or transactions are protected by authorization objects. Authorizations are defined depending on the activity and responsibilities of the employee. The authorizations are combined in an authorization profile that is associated with a role. The user administrators then assign the corresponding roles using the user master record, so that the user can use the appropriate transactions for his or her tasks.

Roles: Roles & Profiles Roles are collections of activities undertaken to fulfil an assignment within a business scenario. These activities could be transactions or reports. To ensure security, activities required to perform a role should be carefully defined when roles are created in SAP, ensuring appropriate segregation of duty i.e. access to some activities and restriction to others.

When a role is created, the corresponding profile, which contains the necessary authorizations, is also created. Once a role is assigned to a user, the corresponding activities and authorizations are then granted. (SAP Help-NetWeaver 2004 SPS23-2011).
