10
Maintaining Configuration Settings in Access Control 10.1
Param ID
1014
Description
Default
Enable separate authorization check for mitigation from access
request
NO
This parameter controls how authorization checks are done during the access request
risk mitigation process.
Previously, when risk mitigation was done during request approval, the mitigation was
saved directly to the user mitigation tables. If the request was later rejected or cancelled,
the mitigation remained in the user mitigation table even though it was then invalid.
By using this parameter, you tell the application to save the mitigation in intermediate
tables until the request is fully approved. At that point, the mitigation is transferred to the
user mitigation table.
This parameter works in conjunction with an activity (88) that is added to authorization
object GRAC_MITC.
Setting the value to YES enables activity 88 and mitigations are saved to an intermediate
table until the request is fully approved.
Setting the value to NO saves the mitigations directly to the user mitigation tables and
activity 88 is not checked.

Maintaining Configuration Settings in Access Control 10.1
Param ID
1015
Description
Default
Get data for Invalid Mitigation Report from Management
Summary table
NO
SAP Access Control allows you to run analysis reports for Invalid Mitigating Controls with
the option to use Offline Data. The report gets the offline data from the detailed violations
table from the last batch risk analysis. The data is very granular (low level) and may take
time and more system resources to get.
This parameter allows you to get the Offline Data from the Management Summary table.
As the data is already at a summary level, it takes less time and less resources to
produce the report.
Set value to No to get the data from the detailed violations table.
Set value to Yes to get the data from the Management Summary table.
Param ID
Description
Default
Specify number of days to exclude from Invalid Mitigation
Cleanup
0
As an AC Administrator, you can use Invalid Mitigation Cleanup to remove mitigation
assignments that are no longer valid because the risks no longer exist. For example, the
role assignments have been removed or the roles have changed.
Additionally, there may be a scenario where you assign mitigation controls in Role
Simulation or User Simulation, which results in invalid mitigation assignments because
the roles or the updates do not yet exist in the back-end. The mitigation assignments will
show as invalid until the user assignments and role changes have propagated to the
back-end system.
1016
If you use Invalid Mitigation Cleanup, it will remove all invalid mitigation
assignments, including those in Simulation. To keep your work from being deleted, you
can use this parameter to exclude the assignments that have been maintained within the
selected number of days from the cleanup. For example, enter 10 to exclude invalid
mitigation assignments maintained in the last 10 days.
The calculated date is based on the date of last maintenance of the mitigating control
assignments to users and roles. Whether the maintenance is done via a request,
manually, or uploaded, the calculation is the same.
Note: If you use the upload feature, all items uploaded would have a last maintained
date of the upload date even if there is no change.

Default report type for risk analysis
2
The Risk Analysis screen allows you to select several report type options for the risk
analysis, such as Access Risk Analysis, Action Level, and Permission Level.
This parameter allows you to choose one or more report types that are selected by
default. It works as follows:

If you do not define a value for parameter 1023 in the IMG, the report type
defaults to 2, Permission Level.

If you define one or more values for parameter 1023 in the IMG, the report type
defaults to those values.
Note: In the IMG value cell, press F4 to display the available types, such as Permission
Level, and so on. The screenshot below shows the report being run with a default value
of 2, Permission Level.

April 2016
19
Maintaining Configuration Settings in Access Control 10.1
Param ID
Description
Default
Maximum number of objects in a package for parallel processing
100
The application uses this parameter in conjunction with the Number of Tasks specified
in the Customizing activity (IMG) Distribute Jobs for Parallel Processing to determine
the distribution of objects that are processed per job.
For example, if there are 10,000 users to analyze and this value is 100, then there will be
100 packages created each having 100 users. Each package is submitted to a separate
background process, which is available to the application via the application group.
1034
If instead, we specify three background processes are available to GRAC_SOD, 100
packages are submitted one by one to these processes. Three packages initially and
then one by one to each process, which complete the package execution.
Note: The RZ10 parameter rdisp/wp_no_btc overrides this configuration. Therefore, if
the RZ10 parameter is set to 2, then the application ignores the parameter in this setting
and uses the value 2 instead.

You see the intermediate results while risk analysis is running. This gives you an
opportunity to see if the desired records are created and choose to stop or cancel
the job.
If you change the location type (such as from D to F) in mid-course, the report will
still read the previously generated files or database records. Index tables keep track
of the source of the records when the data was generated.
If you cancel the job before the report is finished, you can still read the data up to the
point the files or database records were created.
Description
Default
Max number of violations supported in Organization Rule
Analysis
500000
SAP Access Control allows you to consider Organizational Rules when performing
access risk analysis. Depending on the total number of org rules, the analysis can
generate a very large number of violations, which may cause the system to run out of
memory and result in a dump.
With SP07, a feature has been added to enable the application to exit the analysis before
the system runs out of memory. You use this parameter to set the threshold limit. The
default is 500,000.

For example, you can perform User Level risk analysis and choose the option to
Consider Org Rule. If the 500,000 violations threshold is reached, the application
stops the analysis for that particular user and displays the message “Too many
violations”.

Param ID
Description
Default
Add default roles only for systems specified in the Access
Request
NO
Default roles are automatically assigned to users on a system. Typically, these roles
have little to no risk and contain authorizations you want everyone to have.
For example, you want everyone with access to System_A to have authorization to view
data. Therefore, when someone requests access to System_A the application
automatically assigns the default roles to him or her in addition to whatever roles they
requested.
1302
Previously, the application would assign all default roles for all systems in one request
even if the systems were not specified in the request. The rationale is that all default
roles are safe so the risk is low and it saves you from having to assign the roles in
separate requests. For example, someone requests access to System_A. The
application assigns them the default roles for System_A and the default roles for all other
systems.
You can use this parameter to have the application add default roles only for systems
explicitly included in the access request.
If the parameter is set to YES, the application only adds system-specific roles to the
request.
If the parameter is set to NO, the application adds default roles for all systems into the
request.
Note
This parameter is only valid if parameter 2009 is set to Yes.

Default
Default Role Level
REQ&ROL
Select which attribute type determines the relevance of the default roles.
2011

Role – The application uses the role attributes to determine the relevant default roles
and adds the default roles at the time the user adds the roles to the request. That is,
the user does see the added default roles at the time they create the request. You
define the relevant role attributes in parameter 2012.

Request - The application uses the request attributes to determine the relevant
default roles and adds the default roles when the request is displayed for the
approver. That is, the user does not see the added default roles at the time they
create the request. You define the relevant request attributes in parameter 2013.

Request & Role – The application uses both the request and the role attributes to
determine the default roles. If a default role is added due to a role attribute, the user
will see it after adding it to the request. If a default role is added due to a request
attribute, the role is added when the request is displayed for the approver. You
define the relevant role attributes in parameter 2012 and the relevant request
attributes in parameter 2013.
In this example, the value is set to Request. The manager receives a request with the
default role z_user_admin already added, because Functional Area is a relevant
attribute.

applicable for provisioning access requests.
Note: On the Role Maintenance screen, you can select the Consider Parent Role
Approver checkbox to use only the approvers associated with the parent roles and ignore
any approvers associated with the child roles.
In the following example, the user is requesting the role BS_BS_123 of system GF1>GO7. The mapped role AC_C_ROLE1 is automatically added to the request. The user
can choose to remove the role from the request.


Set value as NO
This is the recommended setting. On the SoD Review screen, the application
displays the Propose Removal button. Reviewers can only propose the removal of
roles associated with a SoD risk violation. The workflow goes to the security
administrator who is able to view the source of the risk before deciding whether to
remove the role.

Set value as YES
This setting is not recommended. On the SoD Review screen, the application
displays the Remove Role button. This allows the reviewer to delete the roles
directly without going through approval by the security administrator.
Warning: Reviewers do not have the ability to view the source of the risks; therefore,
they have the risk of potentially deleting relevant roles.

<empty>
The application allows you to require that users complete training courses before the
application provisions specific roles to them.
You enable this functionality by :
1. Setting training requirements
(See Example 1 below.)
2. Configuring MSMP routing rule
3. Configuring the data source systems for verifying if the training requirements are
completed
Example 1: The user is requesting a role that has a TRAINING prerequisite, and Verify
on Request is set to Yes. The application will not allow them to submit the request until
all the prerequisites are met.
2024
The application has a Routing rule for Training and Verification in MSMP
(GRAC_MSMP_DETOUR_TRG_VERIF). The routing checks this parameter to
determine the data source for verifying if the user has completed the training required for
the roles they are requesting to add. If the required training is not completed for a
particular role, the application does not provision the role, and instead, sends the request
to the routing path.

Leave the value field empty to disable the function. The workflow does not take
any routing paths.

Set the value to BAdI and the application uses the specified BAdI to perform the
verification.

Set the value to WS and the application uses the specified web service to
perform the verification.
