ASSESSMENT OF EXISTING CUSTOMER-SPECIFIC SOLUTIONS
SWUS Test workflow
If this parameter is exceeded by a process, the query is cancelled before it could be executed. Both parameters are limited by the parameter abap/heap_area_total. Of course, there are several other storage parameters that would exceed the scope of this article. You can read their function in the SAP documentation.
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.
Restricting the user name in the SAP system
To best adapt your SAP system to the internal and external requirements of your organization, further table-related customizing is required. Here, SAP offers the possibility of logging changes to critical tables through table logging.
Either temporary programme calls are blocked that are actually desired or enormously large gateway logs must be analysed. If, due to the heavy workload, one were to decide to forgo the use of the access control lists permanently, this would be a major security vulnerability. The unprotected system does not have any limitations on the external services that may register, and there are no rules for running programmes. One possible consequence would be, for example, the registration of an external system on which malicious programmes exist. At the moment when foreign programmes are running on your system without any control, you can expect that great damage will be done. For example, it ranges from an unnoticed reading of purchase and sales figures, a diversion of funds, to a paralysis or manipulation of the entire system. In addition, this scenario is also possible for poorly maintained access control lists. Our solution: secinfo and reginfo Generator for SAP RFC Gateway To solve the problem, we have developed a generator that can automatically create secinfo and reginfo files based on gateway logs. The basic idea is based on the logging-based approach. It performs the task of time-consuming analysis of log files and also ensures maximum reliability through automation. Nevertheless, the entries of the generated files should be checked by one person. Since the log files used as input are sensitive data, of course none of the inserted data leave your system. More information about the generator can be found here.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes it easier and quicker to complete a number of SAP basis tasks.
It is primarily a matter of positioning within the IT organisation and defining or positioning the other IT departments that can be considered as competitors in the context of this step.
SAP Basis refers to the administration of SAP system that includes activities like installation and configuration, load balancing, and performance of SAP applications running on Java stack and SAP ABAP. This includes the maintenance of different services related to database, operating system, application and web servers in SAP system landscape and stopping and starting the system. Here you can find some useful information about SAP Basis: www.sap-corner.de.
