To influence the ABAP/Dynro generation, select Additions in the entry screen of the SPAM. Function Menu Path Turn Generation on or off Settings Ignore generation errors during the commit. Ignore error in SPAM steps If an error is detected in one step, the transaction SPAM stops processing until the error is resolved. You can always check with Status to see in which step and for what reason the abortion took place. Types of errors There are the following types of error messages: Security checks of the transaction SPAM A typical example is the OBJECTS_LOCKED_? step. The SPAM transaction interrupts processing when objects are still locked in jobs to be overwritten by the queue. Error messages of the programmes tp and R3trans The cause of error can always be found in the corresponding transport log. A typical example is the TEST_IMPORT step. This checks to see if there are unconfirmed repairs to objects overwritten by the queue. The affected objects are listed in the Testimport log. Incorrect setup of the Change and Transport System Common errors are the lack of appropriate rights to the files of the Change and Transport System or the use of old programme versions of tp or R3trans. Verify that the transport tools are working correctly with Transp Tool. Check Tool. A typical example is the DISASSEMBLE step. If adm does not have write permissions for the /usr/sap/trans/data (UNIX) directory, SPAM will cancel DISASSEMBLE with CANNOT_DISASSEMBLE_R_DATA_FILE. The transaction SPAM requires that the Change and Transport System [External] is set up correctly. For more information on known problems, see Notes 97630 and 97620.

SAP Basis is structured as a classic three-tier model. It contains the following components:
Flexible response to peak loads
The so-called SAP message server also belongs to the application layer. Only one instance of this server exists in the system. It mediates between the services and applications. In concrete terms, this means that the message server takes care of load balancing and determines, for example, on which application server a user logs on. Communication between application servers is also the domain of this message server.

In this article on SAP Security Automation I would like to take a look at the future of automated processes in the SAP Security area. For many companies, the topic of security automation still offers a lot of potential in terms of time savings and process optimisation. Our daily work environment offers numerous tasks that could be handled excellently automatically. For this reason, in this article I present two of the possibilities that already exist in the broad area of security automation. Security Automation via SAP Security Check The first option of Security Automation, which I want to introduce here, is the automatic verification of the existing permissions. Have you ever wondered who has critical permissions in your SAP system? And have you ever tried to do this by hand? Depending on the level of expertise and experience of the privilege administrator, this is a time-consuming work. If an audit is also announced and the SAP system is to be checked for critical permissions and segregation of duties, then it is very difficult to meet all requirements and secure the eligibility landscape in this respect. For this reason, various vendors provide solutions to automate the verification of the permission system with regard to critical permissions and segregation of duties using tool support. This allows permission administrators to use their valuable time to correct the errors rather than just looking for them. For example, we use a tool that runs through the verification of over 250 rules. We then get an evaluation of which rules are violated and which points are correct. A simple example of such rules is the use of the SAP_ALL profile. Another would be to grant the jump permission in debugging (S_DEVELOP permission object with the ACTVT = 02 field). These are two relatively simple examples of Security Check tools' rulebook. In addition, queries are also made, which are located in the field of Segregation of Duties. Using this tool allowed us to move from manual validation of critical permissions to an automatic process.

"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.

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.
