MONITORING AND ADAPTATION OF STANDARDISATION
Using various user, administration and monitoring tools, the SAP Basis system is controlled and managed by an administrator, who is thus responsible for its trouble-free operation. Many companies hand over these tasks to an external service provider.
Another important example is the reading permission for TemSe objects. The temporary files are often forgotten, because it is often not considered that cached (strictly) sensitive data, which is intended for only one user (owner), can be viewed by another user without permission - and across clients. The examples mentioned show us how important it is to carefully assign permissions for client-independent transactions. Download Transaction tables The transactions that enable the examples above, including certain expressions of the associated permission objects and our recommendations for them, can be found in the file "Critical cross-client permissions" for download. Other client-independent transactions are located in the Cross Clients TCODES file. The criticality of these transactions should be assessed according to the context. I recommend always being careful and keeping these transactions in mind.
Control users and access rights
SAP administrators are present wherever SAP systems are used. This is now true for many industries and business sectors. SAP systems can be found in the areas of accounting, cost accounting, activity-based costing and controlling. In all of these areas, they ensure smooth operation and further development, helping the company to make internal processes more efficient and thus save costs and resources.
In the past, when we deployed SAP environments, we first had to work out a detailed sizing and architecture and pass it on to the procurement team, which then ordered the systems and installed them in the data center. From there, it went on to the network team, the storage team, the operating system team, and the database team. So it was not uncommon for three to six months to pass between the architecture design and the installation of a new SAP system.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems" a tool is available that greatly facilitates some tasks in the SAP basis.
Attach transport jobs in the SAP system Once this has been done, you can attach the transport orders in your SAP system to the import queue.
So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? Scribble Papers is a "note box" that makes this very easy.
This is a reconciliation process between the SAP basis, other IT departments and, if necessary, the business areas concerned.
