SAP Basis Support ensures secure operation of the SAP system landscape. For proper operation of the SAP system, the database and operating systems must be checked on a daily basis.
A user name without a restricted character set can be a security risk. Therefore, it is advisable that you restrict the character set of the user ID. In this article you will learn where the dangers lie if you do not limit the user ID. I also explain how to eliminate this security risk.

This is the heart of the SAP system. In the classic three-tier model, this would be the logic or control layer. One or more application servers host the necessary services for the various applications on this layer. These application servers provide all the services required by the SAP applications. In theory, a single server could fill this role. In practice, these services are in most cases distributed among several servers, each serving different applications.
A well-cared-for emergency user concept enables the audit-proof allocation of extended permissions in combination with the assurance of daily operations in your company. This article first addresses the fundamental issues that require an emergency user approach. It then briefly explains how such a concept works in general and how we implement it. An Emergency User is normally used when tasks are temporarily taken over outside the initial field of activity. I described the different scenarios of when such a user can be used and how to deal with them in this blog post for you. Why is an emergency user approach important? There are several scenarios in which the use of an emergency user with extended rights is useful: In urgent cases, it is often necessary to be able to quickly make changes to the system that are outside the user's actual field of activity. A key user who has the necessary permissions is on vacation and needs a representation. The same user suffers short-term illness and his/her representative must take over his/her duties to ensure the operation. We recommend developing a concept for the short-term allocation of the additional permissions. This will ensure the implementation of the above scenarios. How does an emergency user approach work? An emergency user concept in SAP works fundamentally via a temporary assignment of additional rights to a specific user. After the tasks have been completed, the user is deprived of the rights. The tasks performed with the extended permissions are logged and can then be evaluated by an auditor. However, there are a few things to keep in mind: A process for granting special rights should be defined. It must be specified which users can get special rights. The time period for which users can request an emergency user should be limited.
