Custom Transactions for the SAP Access Control Rule Set

Your SAP BusinessObjects Access Control system is tracking only a portion of your segregation of duties (SoD) and transaction risks if you have not added your custom transactions to the SAP BusinessObjects Access Control rule set. The rule set tracks risks created by conflicts between two transactions and risks created by the transaction itself.
SAP BusinessObjects Access Control’s risk analysis and remediation (RAR) functionality (renamed access risk management in version 10.0) comes with a default rule set that contains segregation of duties (SoD) transactions and critical action transactions. However, this SAP BusinessObjects Access Control rule set includes only transactions created by SAP, not the custom transactions created by the company that is using the SAP system.
