CREATING NEW ROLES
How are SAP modules and SAP Basis related?
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.
But when it comes to the intricacies of large SAP environments, Ansible quickly reaches its limits. If you want to use Ansible to implement simple automations - for example, starting and stopping SAP environments - you have to put up with a lot of manual effort and complicated scripts.
What is SAP-BASIS?
User name without restrictions - critical? Depending on the release of the SAP_BASIS component in your system, invisible special characters may end up in the user name. This is especially critical if only spaces or alternate spaces are used for the user name when creating a new user. In Unicode systems, "alternative" spaces, so-called "wide spaces", can be used in addition to the normal space character (hexadecimal value 20). For example, the key combination "ALT+0160" can be used to insert non-breaking spaces. If a user is now created whose user name consists exclusively of such alternative spaces, this can be confusing. This is because entries for this user ID do appear in change documents, but the impression is created that the entry was created by a non-existent / deleted user. This circumstance can lead to confusion. In addition, certain special characters in the user name can also lead to errors, for example in the Change and Transport System (CTS). This is because the user name is also used in the CTS-ORG to create a file with the same name in the transport directory. Furthermore, there are letters/characters that look identical in different alphabets, but have a different hexadecimal value in the character set. This means that confusion in user names cannot be completely ruled out. Seemingly identical user names then stand for different users.
SAP Basis, which means system administration and platform basis of SAP systems - quasi the operating level behind the SAP applications in the company. NEXUS / ENTERPRISE SOLUTIONS is now focusing more strongly on this business area and is strengthening its service portfolio in the basic operation of SAP Basis services (Application Management Services / ongoing support) with optional extensions and project services of SAP Basis operation, for example, in the course of migrations.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.

Overall, the application layer is the link between the database layer on the one hand and the presentation layer on the other.
