Provision of services and basics
To influence the ABAP/Dynro generation, select Additions in the entry screen of the SPAM. Function Menu Path Turn Generation on or off Settings Ignore generation errors during the commit. Ignore error in SPAM steps If an error is detected in one step, the transaction SPAM stops processing until the error is resolved. You can always check with Status to see in which step and for what reason the abortion took place. Types of errors There are the following types of error messages: Security checks of the transaction SPAM A typical example is the OBJECTS_LOCKED_? step. The SPAM transaction interrupts processing when objects are still locked in jobs to be overwritten by the queue. Error messages of the programmes tp and R3trans The cause of error can always be found in the corresponding transport log. A typical example is the TEST_IMPORT step. This checks to see if there are unconfirmed repairs to objects overwritten by the queue. The affected objects are listed in the Testimport log. Incorrect setup of the Change and Transport System Common errors are the lack of appropriate rights to the files of the Change and Transport System or the use of old programme versions of tp or R3trans. Verify that the transport tools are working correctly with Transp Tool. Check Tool. A typical example is the DISASSEMBLE step. If
adm does not have write permissions for the /usr/sap/trans/data (UNIX) directory, SPAM will cancel DISASSEMBLE with CANNOT_DISASSEMBLE_R_DATA_FILE. The transaction SPAM requires that the Change and Transport System [External] is set up correctly. For more information on known problems, see Notes 97630 and 97620.
IMPORT_PROPER In this step, the repository and table entries are recorded. There are the following reasons that may lead to the termination of this step: TP_INTERFACE_FAILURE: Unable to call tp interface. TP_FAILURE: The tp programme could not be run. For more information, see the SLOG or ALOG log file. TP_STEP_FAILURE: A tp-Step could not be performed successfully. The cause of the error can be found in the appropriate protocol, for example in the import or generation protocol. If the generation (tp-Step G) is aborted, you can either fix the errors immediately or after the commit is completed. In the latter case, you must do the following: To ignore the generation errors, select Additions Ignore Gen Error. Continue the playback. Buffer synchronisation problems can also cause generation errors. For more information, see Note 40584.
Potential security risks in application processes in IDM systems
Before the project starts, it must be clear which systems are to be connected to the IdM and which services the system is to provide. This requires close collaboration between the department and IT, as later adaptations or additional systems will extend the implementation and exceed the budget. Analysing existing data To successfully implement an Identity Management System, high quality data is essential. Users' root data must be verified, updated, or maintained. Automation with incomplete or even incorrect data is otherwise not conceivable. Rethinking the Permission Concept With the introduction of an Identity Management System and a workflow for permission granting, the existing roles should be scrutinised once again. You should ask yourself whether the user knows what role he chooses from the current catalogue and whether it is sufficient for his task. Set Role-Owner Not only the user needs to know which role to choose. There must also be a person in charge of the role who adapts or adapts the role as required or acts as a point of contact when required.
There are the following reasons that may lead to the termination of this step: CANNOT_GET_OBJECT_LIST: The Object List of a Support Package could not be found because the Support Package does not exist. CANNOT_GET_LAST_UPGRADE_INFO: Unable to locate information about the latest Repository Switch upgrade. UNRESOLVED_ADDON_CONFLICTS: Conflicts with add-ons could not be resolved because the corresponding CRTs from the queue are missing. SPDD_SPAU_CHECK This step will check if a modification match (transactions SPDD/SPAU) is necessary. DDIC_IMPORT This step imports the ABAP Dictionary.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" complement missing functions in the SAP basis area.
The tasks described above, which occur at rather irregular intervals and involve a certain degree of complexity due to the lack of routine or process know-how, should be examined in order to determine whether they can be performed more efficiently by an external service provider.
