Individual SAP Basis and Database Service for your business software
Have you ever wondered what there is actually a tab personalisation for role maintenance in the PFCG or for user data maintenance in the SU01? I will answer this question for you in this blog post. What do we need the Personalisation tab for? This tab gives you access to the central repository for personalisation data. The purpose of this repository is to create a storage facility for user- and role-specific data without the need to create additional database tables. This data should then be taken into account in all manipulations of users and roles. The functionality initially includes a generic repository for user- and role-specific data and centralised access to that data by user and role maintenance. It also provides the ability to connect existing tables with user-specific data to the central access via a defined interface. To store personalisation data in the central repository, a key must be assigned to the data: This is done via the registration transaction PERSREG. The personalisation data that you create is stored in the generic drop table. Access to it is provided by the class methods of the CL_PERS_ADMIN class. Different levels of personalisation The data can be stored either to the user, to roles or to the system. A user can then read all data assigned to him (via role or his own settings) at once.

Better technologies have expanded the role of SAP Basis Administrators, paralleling the IT industry as a whole. It's no longer enough to keep the system running and performing well. An SAP HANA Basis Administrator also plays a role in cost control, IT strategy and even business policy.
Migration from SAP ERP to SAP S/4HANA
Due to the technology diversity, including in the SAP product portfolio, the support by a single silo unit SAP basis is almost impossible. Likewise, there are many activities that are located for historical reasons in the SAP basis and in parallel in the non-SAP area. In this respect, the separation between SAP and Non-SAP must be examined and, if possible, eliminated by standardisation, integration and centralisation. For example, the issue of output management can be set up in a team that has knowledge in the SAP printing area as well as in the non-SAP printing area and has contact points in the SAP basis. From the SAP basis, tools must be made available to the non-SAP areas to support them in their work in the SAP environment.

If your system is already above SAP NetWeaver Release 7.0, then you must either import SAP Note 1731549 or a corresponding Support Package. Afterwards, when creating new users, it is no longer possible to assign user names that are only composed of variants of spaces or other invisible special characters. Important: Changes to already existing users with these names or their deletion option are not affected by this! The SAP Note also adds the customizing switch BNAME_RESTRICT, whereupon you can control yourself whether alternative spaces are allowed to appear in certain places in the user name. For this, the following values must be set in the customizing table PRGN_CUST: NO = The alternative spaces are still allowed in the user name. ALL = The character set is reduced to a defined range, excluding certain special characters because they have specific meanings in certain operating systems or databases. This predefined character set is: ABCDEFGHIJKLNMOPQRSTUVWXYZ_0123456789,;-§&()={[]}+#. FME = The letters F, M and E stand for Front, Middle and End. With an 'X' in this three-digit switch value you can now explicitly specify at which position in the user name no wide spaces and control characters may occur. All combinations are possible, e.g.: XME = None of these special characters may occur at the BEGINNING of the user name. XMX = In the user name none of these special characters may occur at the BEGINNING and at the END. FME = One of these special characters may occur at any position in the user name (this corresponds to the default setting, i.e. as if no entry was maintained in PRGN_CUST for the switch). SAP recommends the use of the value ALL.
