What is SAP Basis Operation?
Cross-client tables can be modified. The control system of another, productive client can thus be undermined and undermined. Quite a lot of power! Did you also know that the SAP system provides a feature that deletes table change protocols (DBTA BLOG table) and that it is effective across all clients? If the table change logs have not been additionally archived via the BC_DBLOGS archiving object, traceability is no longer available. That way, every criminal act within your company can be beautifully covered up. Similarly, full access to batch management allows you to manage all background jobs in all clients with the permission. This allows you to delete old background jobs that have gone unauthorised. There are also some points to consider when managing print jobs. Typically, the following two SAP access permissions are enabled to protect print jobs: S_SPO_DEV (spooler device permissions) S_SPO_ACT (spooler actions). Why? Confidential information in print jobs is not protected against unauthorised disclosure. (Strictly) sensitive print jobs can be read unauthorised or redirected to external printers and printed out. Print jobs are unprotected unless additional SAP access permissions are enabled to protect print output. The print jobs are multi-tenant, which means that the authorisation award should also be well thought through at the point.
What do RFC interfaces and RFC security have to do with the play "Hauptmann von Köpenick" and the science fiction film "Minority Report"? Probably more than you like! RFC security and theatre?! Germany, Berlin, 1906: The 46-year-old cobbler Wilhelm Voigt dreams of returning to a normal life. After various convictions and many prison stays, he lives on the margins of society. It's not just the money he lacks. Above all, the lack of access to his social system makes him. In view of his impasse, he opts for a drastic measure. The excluded shoemaker pulls off and grates off several junk dealers to assemble a military uniform gradually. A few days later, he slips into the same disguise, successfully changes his identity and then swings through Berlin as Captain von Köpenick. He commandeers soldiers, storms the town hall and even detains the mayor. There is no doubt about the commands and their execution, because their true identity is veiled: Because of a simple disguise. A disguise that gives him all the necessary permissions he needs for his scam. At the end of the day, Wilhelm Voigt successfully compromised the Berlin government. RFC Security and Science Fiction?! USA, Washington, DC, 2054: The Washington police have long since stopped investigating murders: It prevents the killings right in advance. For this purpose, so-called "precogs" are used, which use precognition to predict and report murders in visions before they happen. At the same time, the government uses a system of public scanners that can identify all citizens clearly at any time by iris detection. One day, when policeman John Anderton himself appears as the culprit in a vision of the "Precogs," he flees the police building and decides to find out why.
SAP Basis - the secure foundation of the SAP system
A positive aspect of standardisation and automation is the increase in the quality of tasks, since manual errors can be almost excluded. It also increases the speed at which certain tasks can be performed. This is accompanied by a reduction in the proportion of administrative activity and thus in the proportion of the operation of the system landscape.
Another major topic is the migration of SAP systems, both locally from one data center to another and from one operating system to another or from one database type to another. As a rule, the SWPM tool is used here again.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" is a PC application that simplifies or even facilitates many activities in the SAP basis.
These are Product, Price, Place and Promotion.
Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.
