If your organization has run an SAP system for three years or more, you probably suffer from what we like to refer to as “Deceiving Authorization Roles syndrome.”
SAP Authorization Roles with deceiving one
Whether you’re familiar with this pesky problem or not, maintaining authorization roles for a few years, adding and removing activities and authorization objects, and creating new ones and deleting others all create situations in which authorization roles have names that incorrectly represent their content. This can lead to SAP admins unintentionally granting users with the wrong authorizations.

What? It’s already the third quarter? Yes, it is. We suddenly realized it ourselves, and wanted to make sure to remind you authorization managers and CISOs what you’ll be facing during this second half of the year. We’re assuming that these three things are already on your task list for Q3/Q4 (and if not, they should be), but we thought it would be nice to summarize them anyway.

If you haven’t already noticed, in some SAP support packages several T-Codes have been replaced with other T-Codes. These changes create a challenge in maintaining your company’s authorizations, and there are also implications to the GRC module. So, what do you do?

Oh Mama!

Although the title of this blog refers to mothers, it’s really referring to anyone who’s not technically savvy. The people that, when you tell them that you’re the new authorization manager at your corporation will squint their eyes and say, “Well, I’m sure it’s great and everything, but what does that mean?” The family members who, when they want to show off to their friends, tell them how very talented you are and how you’re “doing something with computers.” Even your kid who embarasses you when he tells his 9th grade class that his father “fixes computers.” Then you realize that you have a problem giving a clear explanation of what you do.

We could have changed history!

In the famous fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood approaches “Grandma” who is actually the Big Bad Wolf in disguise. After the initial moment of meeting, she notices that something’s wrong and starts to question her – “What a deep voice you have!” “What big eyes you have!” and finally “What a big mouth you have!” – which is the last uncertainty before she finds her way into the Wolf’s stomach.
