Configure SAP's Transport Management System (TMS)
I believe that in ten years, enterprises will be able to choose from a variety of platforms for multi-cloud automation. As a result, installation costs will no longer run into the tens of thousands and migrations and upgrades will no longer consume millions.
At best, for the time in which an emergency user is in service, a separate log of the activities undertaken is written, which can then be evaluated. In the following chapter I would like to explain our best practice approach to implementing an emergency user concept. Our approach to using an emergency user concept We have had good experience with the use of the Xiting Authorizations Management Suite (XAMS) in this area. This suite consists of various modules for creating role concepts, managing permissions including a permission concept, and also enables the implementation of an emergency user concept. XAMS works here with a limited time assignment of reference users with extended privileges to enable the emergency user concept. A self-service application may be made with a justification and a period for allocating special rights. The application window is illustrated in an example in the following screenshot: Evaluation of the use of the Emergency User Concept Once this request has been initiated, a new mode will be opened for the user, in which he can work with the extended rights. In addition, depending on the configuration, a stored workflow can be initiated as an approval process, or pre-defined controllers will be notified by email to verify activities. Once the session has ended with the emergency user, the responsible persons will receive another email with the logged activity of the user with the extended permissions. One of these logs is shown in the next screenshot: These logs can also be viewed in the system. Here you will get an overview of all the sessions that have been run. In addition, it is possible to approve activities with special rights after an evaluation. This allows the controller to get an overview of the activities undertaken with the emergency user. If you are using this Emergency User Concept and following these steps, you can ensure: Each user on the production system retains his or her original necessary rights.
Archiving of workflows
SWPM - the Software Provisioning Manager integrates the classical tools like sapinst, ehpup, etc. for the maintenance/installation of SAP systems.
In addition to purely administrative tasks, SAP administrators are also responsible for communication tasks. They work with the company's internal support services to find ways to help users solve and avoid problems and pitfalls they may encounter when using SAP solutions. For internal purposes, the SAP administrator also prepares documentation to look for errors and try to address the root causes. If necessary, he communicates with the company's decision makers so that improvements, adjustments and optimizations can be made to the SAP software.
Use "Shortcut for SAP Systems" to accomplish many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
Therefore a new HANA system like all other ERP systems is also interesting for attackers.
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.
