Learn best practices to enhance and optimize the process of structural authorization checks, such as using evaluation paths, creating indexes, and buffering large numbers of structural authorization check objects in the SAP memory via standard SAP reports.
Structural authorization is an authorization concept used to restrict and control access to data stored in time-based structures such as organizational structures, business event hierarchies (training and events management), and qualification catalogs (personnel development) via structural authorization profile assignment or provisioning.
The responsibility of defining structural authorization in a company is challenging for authorization or security administrators who are saddled with the task of enforcing security and control in the SAP ERP HCM system. It is even more challenging when they must manage the possible performance problem of slow response time that arises during structural authorization checks. Although authorization helps to safeguard business data via controlled user access, it has associated performance implications. You need to strike a balance between adequate security provisioning and optimal system performance.
