4. Service user: – Dialog user available to a larger, anonymous group of users.
5. Reference user: – General, non-person related users that allows the assignment of additional authorizations. Example, Internet users created with transaction SU01. No logon is possible.

You can assign SAP_ALL and SAP_New profile to user for full authorization.

• SAP_ALL:You assign this profile to users who are to have all authorizations, including super-user authorization.

• SAP_NEW:You assign this profile to users who have access to all currently unprotected components. The SAP_NEW profile grants unrestricted access to all existing functions for which additional authorization checks have been introduced. Users can therefore continue to work uninterrupted with functions which are subject to new authorization checks which were not previously executed.

      Hello Mickaël Quesnot

      In your article you describe in point 7 the use of the SAP profiles SAP_ALL and SAP_NEW.

      I strongly request you to consider the security aspect of this in your article.

      Otherwise the Reader could get a wrong idea about the topic SAP authorizations.

      Thank you.
