SWPM - the Software Provisioning Manager integrates the classical tools like sapinst, ehpup, etc. for the maintenance/installation of SAP systems.
There are the following types of Support Packages: SPAM/SAINT Update A SPAM/SAINT update (PAT) contains updates and improvements to the SAP Patch Manager and the SAP Add-On Installation Tool. FCS Support Package An FCS Support Package (FFD) brings an FCS system to the generally available release level (GA level) before other support packages can be inserted. Component Support Package One such support package (COP) applies to one software component (SAP_BASIS, SAP_HR, SAP_APPL, etc) and contains corrections for errors in the repository and in the dictionary in exactly this software component. Support Packages for the component SAP_HR include adjustments due to legal changes in addition to these corrections. A BW Support Package (BWP) is a support package for the SAP Business Information Warehouse (SAP_BW) software component and contains corrections only. Add-On Support Package An Add-On Support Package (AOP) always applies to an add-on with a specific release and includes corrections for that add-on.
Support for adjustments and changes to the systems
Protect: CodeProfiler for ABAP protects the SAP system from internal and external attacks from the first day of deployment. The ABAP firewall can be set up within a very short time and immediately checks every new transport request when it is released. Optimize: The audit function of CodeProfiler for ABAP specifically determines which programs are most threatened and should therefore be cleaned up first. In the long term, CodeProfiler for ABAP supports the automated correction of all findings and thus enables the timely closure of security gaps in all programs.
The security of an SAP system requires protection against unauthorised access, e.g. through the secinfo and reginfo files. A cleanly implemented authorisation concept protects against attacks within the SAP system. However, it is also possible to attack your SAP system via the network. Through the RFC Gateway Server, your system communicates with external servers and programmes. One particularly effective way to protect against this are so-called Access Control Lists (ACL). Find out what this is and how you can use it to better protect your SAP system. The SAP Standard offers different approaches for gate protection. All methods combined can provide even greater safety. For example, it is possible to use Access Control Lists (ACL) to monitor exactly which external programmes and which hosts can communicate with the gateway. Another option is to configure the gateway to support Secure Network Communication (SNC). Finally, there are various security parameters for the gateway. This article focuses on the use of ACL files such as secinfo and reginfo files. What is an ACL? Access control lists are files in which permitted or prohibited communication partners can be recorded. For the gateway to use these ACL files, parameters must be set in the default profile of the SAP system and of course the files must be maintained accordingly. With the help of logs and traces, which can be configured for this purpose, a precise investigation can be made in advance of the activation, which connections currently run via the gateway. This allows them to prevent important applications with which your system communicates from being blocked by the ACL files. The rules in the ACL files are read from top to bottom of the gateway to decide whether to allow a communication request. If none of the rules matches the requesting programme, it will be blocked. Network-based ACL The network-based ACL file contains permitted and prohibited subnets or specific clients.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.
It concerns both the inward-looking perception described in the marketing & self-understanding recommendation and the outward-looking perception in the form of a mission and vision.
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.
