Migration of your ERP landscape to SAP on HANA or S/4HANA
The SAP Identity Management System (IdM) enables centralised user and permission management in a heterogeneous system landscape. By using an IdMSsystem, manual processes can be replaced by automated workflows that are mapped and administered centrally. Examples of scenarios: 1) User and Authorisation Management 2) ESS/MSS for the management of personnel data 3) Audit and monitoring for the verification of compliance with legal regulations What should be taken into account, however, if you want to introduce an Identity Management System? In this contribution, I would like to highlight fundamental points that need to be clarified before the introduction.
This prevents that just because someone would start a new chain, someone would accidentally recognise it as "reality". However, sometimes two miners working on the longest chain find a new block at the same time. This is called Orphan Blocks. The chain now has in principle two end pieces (2 parallel blocks). Different miners now work at different ends of the chain. The blockchain will then continue where the next block will be found first. The other block is called the Orphan Block, and it's sort of a dead branch of the blockchain. So how do you explain the above things to your grandma?
Analysis of errors and optimizations
There is an RFC error. CANNOT_ADD_PATCH_TO_BUFFER: A support package could not be included in the transport buffer. For more information, see the log file in the /usr/sap/trans/log (UNIX) directory. CANNOT_MODIFY_BUFFER: An attempt was made to modify the transport buffer without success. TEST_IMPORT This step checks whether there are still objects in unshared tasks that are overwritten during the commit. The log of the test import shows the cause of the error. For more information, see Note 42379. IMPORT_OBJECT_LIST In this step, the object lists for the support packages in the queue are fed into the system.
From a purely technical point of view, each generated authorization role contains a profile from which a user receives the actual authorization objects and authorization characteristics. If this profile is outdated or not assigned at all, the user will not have all the authorization objects contained in the authorization role. Incidentally, the problem arises particularly frequently after role transports: If an authorization role is changed in the development system and then transported to the production system, the current profile is not automatically assigned to the users with the respective role. A user comparison must therefore be performed here.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" is a PC application that simplifies or even facilitates many activities in the SAP basis.
When was the last time you thought about the security of your RFC interfaces? Can you say with certainty that all your technical RFC users only have the permissions they actually need? And do you know who exactly knows the passwords of these users? Can you 100% rule out that not now in this moment an SAP user with a false identity infiltrates your production systems? Change now: It's about pro activity! But before you start now and start looking for the "identity converter" (which I really do not recommend!), I suggest that you take root of evil and proactively strengthen your RFC security.
