For existing solutions, it is necessary to assess to what extent the solution is customised. A modification is the more serious the more time-consuming the maintenance is, including testing, e.g. in the case of upgrades. The fewer customer specifications are available, the more suitable a system or application is for external operation by a service form to be chosen.
In this step, a dialogue box prompts you to confirm the commit. If the user does not have permission to execute the transaction SPAM or the current queue has not yet been confirmed, the transaction stops SPAM with a message to that effect. CHECK_REQUIREMENTS In this step, different requirements for inserting are checked. There are the following reason that may cause this step to be cancelled: TP_CANNOT_CONNECT_TO_SYSTEM: tp cannot log in to the system database. QUEUE_NOT_EMPTY: There are incomplete OCS jobs in the tp buffer. You can view these jobs using the following tp command: tp SHOWBUFFER
-D SOURCESYSTEMS= TAG=SPAM You cannot resume the processing of the queue until these jobs have been completely processed or deleted from the tp buffer. DISASSEMBLE In this step, files are extracted from the corresponding OCS files and placed in the /usr/sap/trans/data (UNIX) directory.

The Technical Lead functions as the work package leader or sub-project manager within the SAP basis when the project is the focus of the SAP basis. The Technical Lead will become more important in the future as the SAP basis acts as a technology consultant and more projects and project activities are expected in the future. This role must be filled more and more often. Due to the increased demands, this role and the associated activities must be professionalised through training and further training.
Customers with such a case regularly contact us. Creating a Permission Concept from the ground up is often a time-consuming task. Furthermore, the know-how, which aspects should be dealt with in an authorisation concept and how the corresponding processes can look practical and at the same time audit-proof is often lacking. Our solution: tool-based generation of an individual, written authorisation concept In this situation, we have recommended to our customers the tool-based generation of a written authorisation concept directly from the SAP system. We use the XAMS Security Architect tool, with which we have had good experiences. This includes a template for a revision-proof and comprehensible, written authorisation concept. It includes established best practices for role and entitlement management. The template covers all relevant areas in a permission concept. The included text of the authorisation concept is completely customisable, so that the concept can be tailored to your situation without creating a permission concept from scratch. Dynamically update the written authorisation concept One of the biggest challenges after the development of an authorisation concept is to keep it up to date in the long term and to measure the sustainable implementation in the system. This is achieved by integrating live data such as configuration settings and defined rules directly from the connected system. For example, lists of existing roles or user groups and tables are read from the system each time the document is generated and updated in the permission concept. The following screenshot shows an example of what the appearance in the concept document might look like. Automatically check and monitor compliance with the concept To check compliance with the concept, the XAMS Security Architect includes extensive inspection tools. These cover the rules formulated in the concept and are suitable for measuring the extent to which the reality in the system meets the requirements formulated in the concept.
