In the area of SAP Basis it is necessary to make temporary changes in the security settings of the clients and systems in the course of system updates. You can use the system changeability variable to specify whether changeability of cross-client data, such as programs or menus, as well as client-independent customizing is allowed.
Cross-client tables can be modified. The control system of another, productive client can thus be undermined and undermined. Quite a lot of power! Did you also know that the SAP system provides a feature that deletes table change protocols (DBTA BLOG table) and that it is effective across all clients? If the table change logs have not been additionally archived via the BC_DBLOGS archiving object, traceability is no longer available. That way, every criminal act within your company can be beautifully covered up. Similarly, full access to batch management allows you to manage all background jobs in all clients with the permission. This allows you to delete old background jobs that have gone unauthorised. There are also some points to consider when managing print jobs. Typically, the following two SAP access permissions are enabled to protect print jobs: S_SPO_DEV (spooler device permissions) S_SPO_ACT (spooler actions). Why? Confidential information in print jobs is not protected against unauthorised disclosure. (Strictly) sensitive print jobs can be read unauthorised or redirected to external printers and printed out. Print jobs are unprotected unless additional SAP access permissions are enabled to protect print output. The print jobs are multi-tenant, which means that the authorisation award should also be well thought through at the point.
Instead of data maintenance and application development, SAP Basis is more about providing and maintaining the software environment on which the data resides and is processed. Therefore, SAP Basis is an important core of any SAP infrastructure and is required in both predecessor versions such as R/3 and current versions such as S/4HANA 2021.
The SAP Patch Manager (SPAM) is the online correction support (OCS) customer site. The SPAM transaction gives you the ability to easily and efficiently import support packages provided by SAP into your system. Depending on the system used or the configuration of your system, you must insert different types of Support Packages [page 8]. You will receive support packages in SAPNet - Web Frontend, in SAPNet - R/3 Frontend or on Collection CDs. Since SPAM runs within the SAP system, you do not need to know the operating system to handle the transaction. In the language usage of SAP, the term patch has been replaced by the term support package. Note that you can only work with this transaction in SAP GUI for Java and SAP GUI for Windows.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" complement missing functions in the SAP basis area.
As a result, installation costs will no longer run into the tens of thousands, and migrations and upgrades will no longer consume millions.
The freeware Scribble Papers is a "note box" in which all kinds of data can be stored. It takes in typed texts as well as graphics and entire documents. The data is then organised in folders and pages.
