You wanted to rush to release a transport order in the quality system of your SAP landscape and accidentally clicked on "Reject" instead of "Approve"? Now the order cannot be transported any further and will soon be cleared by job from the queue? Don't despair: In this blog post, I'm going to tell you a simple way to get rejected transportation to the production system anyway. As a reader of our blog, you are certainly interested in tricks and tricks that will make your SAP system easier to handle. You may be aware of the situation where you want to approve a transport order quickly after the test has been completed and you have clicked in the system when the order was released. The problem now is that the transport order in the system now has a status of "rejected" and can therefore no longer be transported. In total, a transport order may receive important changes that you would have liked to have transported to the production system. Approach to release rejected transport orders The screenshot below shows the situation in the STMS transaction where a transport order in the quality assurance area was rejected. Therefore, an import into the production system is no longer possible. The transport job can be removed either manually or through a job. The question here, however, is how the amendments which were wrongly rejected can be transferred to the subsequent system. Rejected Transport Order Tip: Leave the status on Rejected, remove the rejected transport order from the import queue, if necessary, and follow the next steps. Switch to the import queue in your quality system. Go there via Additions -> More Orders -> Attach to the modal window where you can perform further steps.

In every company with several SAP systems, there is a person responsible for the complete SAP Basis topics, usually there is even a separate department for this. This person ensures the trouble-free operation of the SAP systems. The person responsible also accompanies maintenance work or upgrades and intervenes in special situations, such as poor performance. Even for companies that hand over operation of the SAP Basis to an external service provider, there are often tasks from the user and authorization management environment at this point.
At best, for the time in which an emergency user is in service, a separate log of the activities undertaken is written, which can then be evaluated. In the following chapter I would like to explain our best practice approach to implementing an emergency user concept. Our approach to using an emergency user concept We have had good experience with the use of the Xiting Authorizations Management Suite (XAMS) in this area. This suite consists of various modules for creating role concepts, managing permissions including a permission concept, and also enables the implementation of an emergency user concept. XAMS works here with a limited time assignment of reference users with extended privileges to enable the emergency user concept. A self-service application may be made with a justification and a period for allocating special rights. The application window is illustrated in an example in the following screenshot: Evaluation of the use of the Emergency User Concept Once this request has been initiated, a new mode will be opened for the user, in which he can work with the extended rights. In addition, depending on the configuration, a stored workflow can be initiated as an approval process, or pre-defined controllers will be notified by email to verify activities. Once the session has ended with the emergency user, the responsible persons will receive another email with the logged activity of the user with the extended permissions. One of these logs is shown in the next screenshot: These logs can also be viewed in the system. Here you will get an overview of all the sessions that have been run. In addition, it is possible to approve activities with special rights after an evaluation. This allows the controller to get an overview of the activities undertaken with the emergency user. If you are using this Emergency User Concept and following these steps, you can ensure: Each user on the production system retains his or her original necessary rights.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.
SKILLS & ROLLS In the future, SMEs will support thematic outtasking, especially for rarely performed tasks such as upgrades, and will ensure documentation (e.g. interfaces and customer developments) so that intervention can take place in an emergency.
