Best Practice SAP Basis Administration: Batch Control
SM02 Create system message
Mentioning the SUM tool leads us to another part of SAP Basis: system updates and upgrades. Since SAP software receives updates from SAP at regular intervals - in the case of R/3 in the form of SPS (Support Package Stacks) and in the case of S/4HANA in the form of FPS (Feature Pack Stacks) - a large part of an SAP Basis administrator's job is to import these packages into the SAP system.
Before the project starts, it must be clear which systems are to be connected to the IdM and which services the system is to provide. This requires close collaboration between the department and IT, as later adaptations or additional systems will extend the implementation and exceed the budget. Analysing existing data To successfully implement an Identity Management System, high quality data is essential. Users' root data must be verified, updated, or maintained. Automation with incomplete or even incorrect data is otherwise not conceivable. Rethinking the Permission Concept With the introduction of an Identity Management System and a workflow for permission granting, the existing roles should be scrutinised once again. You should ask yourself whether the user knows what role he chooses from the current catalogue and whether it is sufficient for his task. Set Role-Owner Not only the user needs to know which role to choose. There must also be a person in charge of the role who adapts or adapts the role as required or acts as a point of contact when required.
A move is imminent
