SAP Basis - Administration of SAP system landscapes
User name without restrictions - critical? Depending on the release of the SAP_BASIS component in your system, invisible special characters may end up in the user name. This is especially critical if only spaces or alternate spaces are used for the user name when creating a new user. In Unicode systems, "alternative" spaces, so-called "wide spaces", can be used in addition to the normal space character (hexadecimal value 20). For example, the key combination "ALT+0160" can be used to insert non-breaking spaces. If a user is now created whose user name consists exclusively of such alternative spaces, this can be confusing. This is because entries for this user ID do appear in change documents, but the impression is created that the entry was created by a non-existent / deleted user. This circumstance can lead to confusion. In addition, certain special characters in the user name can also lead to errors, for example in the Change and Transport System (CTS). This is because the user name is also used in the CTS-ORG to create a file with the same name in the transport directory. Furthermore, there are letters/characters that look identical in different alphabets, but have a different hexadecimal value in the character set. This means that confusion in user names cannot be completely ruled out. Seemingly identical user names then stand for different users.
In every company with several SAP systems, there is a person responsible for the complete SAP Basis topics, usually there is even a separate department for this. This person ensures the trouble-free operation of the SAP systems. The person responsible also accompanies maintenance work or upgrades and intervenes in special situations, such as poor performance. Even for companies that hand over operation of the SAP Basis to an external service provider, there are often tasks from the user and authorization management environment at this point.
SAP Basis service on the safe side
Examples of names are: SAP Cross-Application, SAP Innovation & Technology, SAP Services & Innovation, SAP Operations & Innovation or SAP Service Provider & Business Innovator. DESCRIPTION OF OWN PERFORMANCE AND SERVICE PORTFOLIO In order to be consulted by upstream or downstream entities, it is necessary to provide a detailed and understandable description of your service portfolio. This means that it can be explicitly stated in which cases the SAP basis needs to be contacted and involved in order to make the necessary decisions and not jeopardise a project or company success. In addition to the range of tasks covered by the SAP basis, it is also necessary to specify for which tasks and topics the SAP basis is not responsible. This recommendation is to be considered as universal and applies to all IT departments in order to clearly distinguish them and document the performance of their own IT organisation. INTERNAL MARKETING DESIGN AND ESTABLISH Building on the recommendation [A3], it is recommended to design and establish an internal marketing. The aim is to provide a transparent picture of the activities carried out in terms of the company's success and which are not visible to everyone.
This option is useful if several transactions are to be checked simultaneously for their existing assignment to a particular user. This variant must first identify all roles that have already been assigned to the user. This is done in the transaction SE16N by entering the table AGR_USERS. In addition, the limit of the maximum hit number can be set in this image. The user concerned must now be entered here. Furthermore, the output should be limited to the roles only. After the query is executed, all the roles assigned to the previously entered user are displayed. These are now completely marked and copied. Then in the transaction SE16N a step back is taken and this time the table AGR_1251 is selected. Now all the roles that have been copied previously are inserted here. In addition, the object S_TCODE and the transactions to be searched for are filtered. Warning: When entering transaction codes, be sure to be case-sensitive! At this point, the output can also be limited to the roles and object values (in this case, the transactions). After the query is executed, the transactions entered will now show those that the user can already perform. In addition, the role assigned to the transaction is shown. In conclusion, the SUIM is only partially suitable for identifying certain transactions with user assignment. Although the search using the S_TCODE permission object also allows you to view multiple transactions. However, since the result is missing the assignment of transactions considered to roles, the SUIM transaction can only be usefully used to check a single transaction for its existing assignment to a particular user.
Some missing SAP basic functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
With respect to the SAP basis, this step is concerned with product portfolio analysis and the creation of IT products and a product catalogue.
SAP Basis is the foundation of any SAP system. You can find a lot of useful information about it on this page: www.sap-corner.de.
This is where users read required information and enter new data into the system.
