Wildgrowth of characters used in user IDs can have negative effects. Set a bar on it by limiting the character set in the first place. In the SAP system, depending on the release of the SAP_BASIS software component, you can create users whose names may contain "alternative" spaces. In Unicode systems, there are different spaces, which are represented by different hexadecimal values. The usual space has a hexadecimal value of 20, but there are alternative spaces (wide spaces), which can be recognised, for example, as double width or not at all as character spacing. You can use these alternate spaces when entering the user ID by pressing the Alt key. For example, the key combination (Alt) + 0160 can create a space with a non-breaking space. You can also create a user whose ID consists only of alternate spaces. Users with such IDs will write all change documents, but the IDs can still cause confusion if, for example, they are not recognisable as a user ID or if it appears that no user is displayed for the change document. In addition, certain special characters may cause problems in other applications (e.g. in transport management). Therefore, we will show you how to prevent such problems by limiting the character set.

If you want to set up a new client or take over the movement data of the productive system in a development system, you should also consider the modification documents. If you have a client copy, you should first delete the indexing of the change documents (table SUIM_CHG_IDX), since you can restore the indexing after the copy. To do this, use the SUIM_CTRL_CHG_IDX report without selecting a date and check the Reset Index box. After the copy has been made, delete the change documents that are dependent on the client; This also applies to the client-independent change documents (e.g., proposed permissions, table logs) if you have copied the client to a new system. In addition, you should remove the shadow database alterations before copying the client and complete the index build after the copy. In any case, check the Reset Index box in the SUIM_CTRL_CHG_IDX report!

Remove improperly defined SAP Orgebene ($CLASS): This function deletes the $CLASS organisational level that was incorrectly delivered with the GRCPlug-in (Governance, Risk and Compliance). Use the test mode of the report to look at possible corrections in advance.

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.


Therefore, sometimes there is confusion when a user is still able to log on to the system, e.g. via Single Sign-on (SSO), despite the password lock.

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.
