How are SAP modules and SAP Basis related?
In the SAP Business Objects environment, you can extend the control of permissions using the CMC tab configuration. The tab configuration allows you to easily show or hide specific tabs for users or groups. Enable CMC Tab Configuration By default, the CMC Tab Configuration feature is set to "Don't Limit" and is disabled. For you to be able to use the tab configuration at all, you will need to enable it for now. Note: If you enable the tab configuration, all users that are not under the default Administrators group will not see tabs for the time being. This is because access is denied by default through the CMC tab configuration. Therefore, once enabled, you must maintain tabs for all existing groups. Therefore, make sure you have an account associated with the Administrators Group! To do this, go to Applications, right-click Central Management Console, and select Configure Access to the CMC tab: The CMC can be found under Applications. Now enable the configuration by selecting the Restrict option. Use Restrictions to enable the option. Hide/show tabs If you are now logging in with a user that is not in the default Administrators group, you will not see applications/tabs on the CMC home page. Initially no applications/tabs are visible To display the desired tabs for the groups again, switch to users and groups with your administrator account, right-click on the desired group, and select CMC tab configuration. Enter the tab configuration. In the dialogue that appears, you see that all tabs are denied access by default.
There is no way around containers, and even SAP will soon have to reorient itself here and allow the NetWeaver stack to be run in containers. There are many indications that Kubernetes will win the battle for supremacy among container management tools. SAP has also already invested in Gardener and is also intensifying its partnerships with IBM and Red Hat Openshift.
Support or substitution of your employees
As a member of the SAP Basis specialist team, your responsibilities will include the design, operation, administration, support and installation of an extensive SAP system landscape with over 50 systems for 17 universities and 2 institutions in Lower Saxony. Furthermore, you will monitor the SAP system landscape as well as its interfaces to external systems and carry out measures within the scope of software lifecycle management (e.g. note maintenance, support stacks, release upgrades) and change management (e.g. hardware migration, transport system and documentation). As part of the SAP Basis team, you will be the contact person for organizational and technical questions of the universities and in 3rd-level support for user inquiries.
In the case of distributed or local SAP systems, it can also be helpful if departments or decentralized IT units can schedule their own jobs themselves. It is important that the associated approval processes can also be mapped and easily tracked. This brings convenience, flexibility and a degree of freedom without neglecting operational security. The integration of the business departments can relieve the IT administrator and turn background processing into an end-to-end process integrated into the organization.
For administrators, a useful product - "Shortcut for SAP Systems" - is available in the SAP basis area.
For this reason, in this article I present two of the possibilities that already exist in the broad area of security automation.
So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? Scribble Papers is a "note box" that makes this very easy.
The SAPSolution-Manager can also support this as a tool of SAP e.g. through the Guided Procedures.
