SAP Roles and Access for SAP Implementation team members

Hi,
Is it correct practice to give SAP_ALL role access for all SAP Implementation team members in Dev and QA?
If not, what is the correct practice?
Kindly let me know

Madhu,
It is NOT correct practice to give anyone SAP_ALL in any of the systems; not DEV, not QAS, and certainly not PRD. However, many implementation teams (and particularly consultants from SIs) insist that they cannot possibly do their jobs without it. This is completely incorrect as there are specific roles for them to use for that purpose. The only circumstance where it could be justified is if you require a special "firefighter" role - and even then, I would still be a bit doubtful.
You should also consider that once you have given someone SAP_ALL, they will fight tooth and nail to keep it. It also means that they probably are not testing the user roles correctly. Most of those that insist they need it simply do not understand the security issues and probably don't care.
Just think; if they have access to do soemthing that they shouldn't and then cause a big problem, are they the ones that will have to fix it or are they going to expect you to do it? If they expect you to clear up after them, then you have the right to insist on restricting their access to cause issues in the first place.
But I know just how demanding they can be....
Best of luck
Tony

  • Defining roles and access for OWB Designer

    Hi,
    Can i Define roles and access rights to different on 1 OWB Designer repository?
    I want to send my mappings for code review but i dont want them to log into the OWB designer with write access.
    How can i achieve this in the same OWB designer repository as the one i am using?
    I am using OWB 10.1.
    I found some table - WMP_USER_ROLES,WMP_GROUP_ROLES,WMP_GROUP_REPOSITORIES
    when i logged into the designer schema through sqlplus
    Thanks

    Hi Sagar,
    Yes you can do that. Basically you can create a db user, and then register the user with a repository. By default that user has all privileges, however it now is audited per user as to what he/she did. How to do this look at the doc (find SecurityHelper)
    To enable you to protect metadata there are a couple of strategies (implemented via a simple PL/SQL API). For an example (this one works with policies on the module level) take a look here (http://www.oracle.com/technology/sample_code/products/warehouse/files/Dev_Status_Policy.SQL)
    This would work as follows:
    - Create user REVIEW
    - Register user REVIEW to repos QA
    - For a module you want review for, set the status to QA
    Now the REVIEW user logs in and he can look at QA but cannot touch.
    Hope this helps,
    Jean-Pierre

  • Roles and profile in SAP

    what is role and profile in SAP?
    how we can diffferentiate both?

    Hi Swati,
    Role refers to the collection of associated activities (privilages) such as transactions, reports and so on. There are 2 types of Roles, Standard Role and Derived Role. While profile is a set of authorizations that are valid for the transactions defined in that role. Roles contain no actual access. They contain a role menu composed of transaction codes. These transaction codes are then mapped into the profile automatically by profile generator. When a role is generated (once created) the profiles are created automatically by profile generator. Every transaction code is different and may require different numbers of accompanying authorization objects to execute. A single profile can only contain 150 authorizations.  Once that number is exceeded the profile generator will automatically create a second profile, sorted alphabetically by object name.
    Please refer the below links:

    String Testing
    One transaction full activity is called string testing . For example Vendor invoice, goods received and vendor payment.
    Integration Testing
    It is purely with other modules and we have to check whether the FI testing is working with other related modules or not.
    Regression Testing
    Testing for whole database. Bring all the data into another server and do the testing is called regression.
    UAT
    When we test any particular document with the user and if it is ok immediately we have to take the signature on the document, which is signed off and can be forwarded to the immediate boss. There are some steps to be followed when we go for user acceptance testing.
    Transaction u2013 Script Writing u2013 Expected Results u2013 Compare with Actual Results
    TPR (Transaction Problem Reporting)
    While doing the user acceptance testing if we get any problems then there are some methodologies to be followed according to the companyu2019s policy and normally as a tester we always need to write on Test Script itself.
    Hope this helps you.

    Hi Sreenivas,
    I would recommend that you read the Rules of Engagement and other documents in the Getting Started link (top right) before posting anymore.  Your Discussion will most likely get reported as non-specific and get removed.  If you have a specific problem with TM, please post it in a new thread with error messages, version and SPs installed, and how the error occurs and what you are trying to get TM to do.
    There are a lot of resources available in the TM Overview page which can help, so start there and maybe also look at some of the MKS (Monday Knowledge Session) recordings which should also be listed.  There are also a lot of experienced people who can help resolve issues your TM installation, but you need to provide enough information on the problems you are having.  If you are just looking for information on past problems, do a Search or simply browse through past Discussions which are marked with a green Check (Correct Answer).

  • SAP JAM work pattern for SAP C4C Service ticket

    Can anybody familiar with the SAP JAM Work pattern for SAP Cloud for Customer Service tickets answer these questions?
    My client would like to use SAP JAM groups in Service tickets in the following way:
    C4C service agents raise service tickets which are then worked on by back-office departments (who don't have access to C4C but will collaborate on ticket resolution via SAP JAM)
    Back-office departments work on a high volume of tickets so having one JAM group per ticket is not practical. Instead we would like to have one JAM group per department
    Departmental JAM groups should be created in JAM independently from C4C
    Upon ticket creation in C4C, the service agent should be able to select the relevant departmental JAM group to collaborate and start a discussion topic
    The agent should be able to easily pick up any update/reply from the back office team on the topic he created
    Is the scenario above supported? In particular, how can one predefine/auto-select which JAM group is assigned to a service ticket?

  • Roles and Rules for workflow.

    Hi,
        I have some basic conpectual problem about roles and rules.
        What is the diffrenece between roles and rules in sap business workflow ?  What is the Tcode for Role creation/Change/Display and Rule creation/Change/Display ? 
    I am using a standard workflow for PR Release "WS20000077".
    I have done all the setting except this agent assignment using roles or rules. The default rules used in the task "TS20000159" is "20000026". The Binding from workflow to rules container is also defined by the workflow itself.
    This rules is defined using a function module.When I am putting a breakpoint in this function module and tring to execute my workflow it is not going to the given breakpoint but the workflow is running successfully as shown in the event trace "SWE2".
      What could be the problem..Pls suggest?

  • Convert SQL server database into SAP readable (encrypted) XML for SAP tool?

    Could anyone kindly let me know what is the procedure to convert SQL server database into SAP readable (encrypted) XML for SAP Authoring tool???

    So If I understood it correctly there an existing propriertory question bank with SQL server. You are looking at an option to migrate all the tests and questions from the existing system to the LSO system. Right ?
    I am still not clear on the xml conversion. Have you guys found a solution which could be achieved through a xml file ?
    am not aware of a way through which you could import only a xml file and create tests/questions. If you have a sample xml file then forward me so that I could do some testing on my end.As per my knowledge you could do one of the following. I
    1. Create the tests and questions manually in Authoring Environment. It will be a time consuming task. Based on the number of questions you have you might have to assemble a team of content developers to acheive this.
    2. Alternatively, you could create a Adobe Flash based assessment. The Flash component would be the front-end and will read from a xml file to display the questions and to drive the funcationality. This would be a easier and less time consuming than creating the assessments manually in authoring environment. However, you might miss out some of the functionality available in the Test Author of Authoring Environment unless you have all the functionality replicated inside Flash. This would require one time effort in creating the Flash template and the xml file structure. Once that is created you could create multiple assessments by just replacing the xml file. If you select this approach then you would have to ensure the data from SQL is converted in the desired xml format required by your Flash component.
    Please let me know if you require any further guidance or clarification regarding this.
