Import external transport orders to an SAP system
Do you know how to execute SQL commands on the tables in your SAP system? In the past, I asked myself the same question when I wanted to run prepared Querys on a table without converting it to a query over the SE16N with appropriate filters. After my research, I came across a simple way to have your SQL statements resolved transaction-based by an editor. This is the approach I'll describe to you in the following post. You may know the situation that you want to quickly put a short SQL statement on your SAP system without having to invest much effort in ABAP programming. You may not have the ABAP knowledge to extract data from a table, but you are familiar with SQL.
The analysis shows you in the form of a traffic light output (red-yellow-green) whether the respective settings are configured correctly. In addition, you can also view the detailed values of the respective settings.
Finally, the presentation layer contains software components for the graphical presentation of the application. It thus forms the interface to the users (GUI).
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" simplifies tasks in the area of the SAP basis and complements missing functions of the standard.
Support Packages for the component SAP_HR include adjustments due to legal changes in addition to these corrections.
The person responsible for SAP Basis needed to have not only knowledge related to SAP systems, but also broad skills about operating systems (Windows and Linux), databases (e.g. Oracle, MaxDB, HANA Database) and network services.
