SAP BASIS AND DATABASE SERVICE
Own development testing is very common in the quality system. Therefore, the customising/workbench developments must be transported to the appropriate system. It is highly recommended to use the order type "Transport of copies". This post explains why you should use this type of order and what you need to consider. Transporting copies - Why? All objects on the original transport order remain locked. Only the copies of the objects are transported to the next SAP system. If something goes wrong during transport, objects can easily be recollected or added. In addition, when copies are transported to the test system, no import is created in the production system. The import queue remains clean and clear. The problem with overtaking transports is eliminated. Transporting Copies - Creation To create a transport of copies, call the Transport Organiser through the transaction SE01. Check the Order Type "Transfers of Copies" and click View Create a new order (using the Document icon or F6 key). Then select the order type "Transport of copies". Then define a description and the destination system of the transport. Transport of copies - Add objects The transport order of the type "Transports of copies" was created. Now we want to add the objects of the original to be transported. Unfortunately, not all objects of an order can be copied directly. Therefore, it is important to take the objects task by task. A transport order can contain multiple tasks. Press CTRL+Y to highlight the task ID and then copy it by CTRL+C. Right-click on your order of the type "Transport of Copies" and select the Include objects option. Select the object list of an order and copy in the ID of the task that contains the objects to be transported. Confirm your input. All objects of the order are transferred to the transport of copies. You can then transport the objects to the test system using the normal transport procedure.
Today, most customers rely on an infrastructure abstraction layer, whether it's VMware or one of the cloud hypervisors. So base administrators need to know how to provision and manage systems in the cloud.
You can reduce the Queue selection. To do this, select the Support Package that should be the last in the queue. After that, the queue is recalculated. You can also start the recalculation explicitly with Queue. Note that you can only select Support Packages that are part of the software component you have selected (the mouse cursor will change its appearance accordingly). The support packages associated with the calculated queue are green. The highest support package of the previously selected software component is additionally marked with a green tick. The support packages that are no longer part of the queue are still visible in the list and can be selected again. If you want to set the queue for another software component, select New Component. Result You have defined a queue. Now insert the support packages in the queue [page 20]. Rules for the Queue The following rules apply to creating a Queue: If it is an FCS system, the first step is an FCS Support Package. If it is missing from the queue, it cannot be defined. Instead, you will receive an error message telling you the name of the missing FCS Support Package. You cannot insert an FCS support package in a non-FCS system (official state of delivery). Support packages for a selected component are queued in order. If support packages in the queue have connections to support packages of another component (further predecessor relationship, required CRT), the queue will be extended by additional support packages until all predecessor relationships are fulfilled. Note that the SAP Patch Manager takes into account the configuration of your SAP system and only adds support packages to the queue that can be inserted into your system.
The SAP NetWeaver Application Server Add-on for Code Vulnerability Analysis tool, also known as Code Vulnearability Analyzer (CVA), is a tool that performs a static analysis of user-defined ABAP source code to detect possible security risks. The tool is available in the NetWeaver ABAP stack and is based on versions from: 7.0 NetWeaver: in EHP2 SP 14 or higher / 7.0 NetWeaver: in EHP3 SP 09 or higher / 7.3 NetWeaver: in EHP1 SP 09 or higher / 7.4 NetWeaver: in SP05 or higher To use the CVA tool, the execution of system-wide security controls must be enabled with the RSLIN_SEC_LICENSE_SETUP report. Afterwards, the security checks are available in standard ABAP code checking tools such as ABAP Test Cockpit (ATC) or Code Inspector (SCI). The option of these checks is usually referred to as "security analysis in extended program check". Note that the use of the security check feature for custom code separation is licensed and incurs additional costs. The older program that has been around for years is Virtual Forge's "Code Profiler". It is one of the first products in this segment of SAP security and was used by SAP itself for many years. It is very comprehensive and is also able to track individual variables across the entire control flow. This leads to very precise statements and a reduction of false positives.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" is a PC application that simplifies or even facilitates many activities in the SAP basis.

Application layer: The application layer is the central component of the SAP ERP system and is therefore also referred to as the base system.
