Many companies are struggling with the introduction and use of secinfo and reginfo files to secure SAP RFC gateways. We have developed a generator that supports the creation of the files. This blog post lists two SAP best practices for creating the secinfo and reginfo files to enhance the security of your SAP gateway and how the generator helps you do this. secinfo and reginfo Request generator Option 1: Restrictive procedure In the case of the restrictive solution approach, only in-system programmes are allowed. Therefore, external programmes cannot be used. However, since this is desired, the access control lists must be gradually expanded to include each programme required. Although this procedure is very restrictive, which speaks for safety, it has the very great disadvantage that, in the creation phase, links which are actually desired are always blocked. In addition, the permanent manual activation of individual connections represents a continuous effort. For large system landscapes, this procedure is very complex. Option 2: Logging-based approach An alternative to the restrictive procedure is the logging-based approach. To do this, all connections must be allowed first by the secinfo file containing the content USER=* HOST=* TP=* and the reginfo file contains the content TP=*. During the activation of all connections, a recording of all external programme calls and system registrations is made with the gateway logging. The generated log files can then be evaluated and the access control lists created. However, there is also a great deal of work involved here. Especially with large system landscapes, many external programmes are registered and executed, which can result in very large log files. Revising them and creating access control lists can be an unmanageable task. However, this process does not block any intentional connections during the compilation phase, which ensures the system will run non-disruptively.

In many companies, the SAP system is the linchpin of everyday business. To ensure that the system is available at all times, an SAP Basis team ensures its smooth operation.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.
The SAP basis as an organisational unit within a growing IT organisation is facing far-reaching changes.
A trick often used by administrators is to allow for time buffers before starting the next job.
