A Checklist for Migration of Data to SAP Access Control 10.0

SAP has recoded version 10.0 of SAP Access Control on the ABAP stack. For this reason it isn’t possible to simply upgrade your current deployments of the solution; it is necessary to install new instances of version 10.0 and migrate your data to them. SAP supports migration from the two previous releases — SAP Access Control 5.3 and Compliance Calibrator/Firefighter 4.0.
This table provides an overview of the different data objects that can be migrated to SAP Access Control 10.0. Data relating to risk analysis and remediation (RAR) and superuser privilege management (SPM) – aka firefighter – is relatively easy to migrate. The migration of firefighter tables is necessary, because in version 10.0 of SAP Access Control emergency access management has turned into a fully centralized capability, including the management of owners, controllers, and firefighters.
