Controlling users and access rights

In addition, the SAP Basis team can easily implement new functionality in the new system - without compromising the security, stability or quality of the previous function, which would be the case with non-certified and inexperienced people. Smooth implementation is enabled by project experience, training and certificates.
On the one hand, staff clerks (or other personnel officials) should be able to carry out their important work. On the other hand, the protection of personal data of one's own employees is one of the most important tasks of the authorisation system. Any mistake in this area can cause the company's data protection officers to wring their hands over their heads. For this reason, tools are currently being developed to provide security and visibility in the HR permissions area. The basic idea is a clear overview that shows which data certain users in the SAP system can access. Based on this, automatic checks can be developed, which run in the background and regularly check whether critical gaps have been created by changes to the permissions in the HR area. The use of such a tool can create more security, especially in the HR authorisation environment. In addition, the possibility of the overview function is very pleasant and relieving for all involved. Read more This blog post is intended to show what is already possible in the field of Security Automation. The topic will accompany us more and more in the SAP area in the next few years. Therefore, it is recommended to start thinking about how your company is prepared for security automation. If you are interested in setting up and preparing a company outside the security area, I can recommend the book 'Consulting Y' by Ferdinando Piumelli (Managing Director of mindsquare GmbH). In this book, Mr. Piumelli describes his observations and experiences of digital transformation as a strategy consultant for leading DAX30 companies. In doing so, he is focusing on the near future, which, in the spirit of the digital revolution, will have a major impact on the world's large companies and economy.
Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.

In order to explain the relationship between TREX and SAP Solution Manager, I would like to ask you a question first. Can you remember when you last used the search help (F4) in SAP, what you were looking for and above all what the search string looked like? Now, the entitlement admin might have looked like this. Any role for a new key-user in the HCM area, but how exactly was that called? Would you Google the same way? - Not much. The Enterprise Search in Solution Manager 7.2 In the SAP Solution Manager, the SAP Enterprise Search provides a comprehensive full-text search. With only one keyword, you can search centrally for all types of documents in the ITSM and ChaRM, such as incidents or changes, via the Fiori Launchpad. If you have added attachments, they will also be searched for the keyword. At a technical level, a special BOL query object is passed to the Enterprise Search, which passes the HANA database and performs a search. What if you don't use the Solution Manager on SAP HANA? Enterprise Search with TREX 7.1 SAP offers the possibility to use Solution Manager 7.2 on another database (AnyDB), for example DB2 or Oracle. In order to use Enterprise Search (also embedded search) in this case, you need the TREX admin tool. This stands for Text Receival and Information Extraction, which basically describes the functionality of the software. The TREXEngine takes the search text in the form of the Query object and provides an intelligent search of keywords and long texts in previously classified documents. Installation and Usage Tips Run the TREX configuration after the basic configuration of the Solution Manager. In SOLMAN_SETUP you will find the Embedded Search scenario, which is the guide for the configuration. In the Process Management scenario, configure the embedded search using the description. Here the object connectors are created and the indexing jobs are started. Both are required to use the solution documentation in conjunction with other components. If you are installing UNIX, make sure that the shared libraries are up-to-date or that they are initially available.
Capacity must be built to provide the necessary space for pilot and research projects and to meet the increased demands. This can be done, among other things, by increasing the previous resources or/ and by measures of standardisation & automation as well as "cloudability", outsourcing & outtasking.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" is a PC application that simplifies or even facilitates many activities in the SAP basis.

A note box in which data of all kinds can be quickly filed and retrieved. This is what Scribble Papers promises. At first, the program looks very spartan. But once a small structure is in place, you realise the great flexibility of this little helper.
An Oracle administration expert with a decade of experience understood perhaps only about 5% of what the database required.
