SAP's client concept enables a SAP system to be split into several logical sub-systems - clients. These subsystems can be used independently and in isolation as separate systems. But how should non-client transactions be treated? How can you prevent one client from accessing the other and why should you want to prevent that? In this blog post, I will answer these questions and discuss some negative examples. Why is it important to consider independent transactions separately? Imagine that every one of your employees is allowed to create or change a client in the production system, or worse, both. Creating and modifying a client in the production system is authorised and documented - you wonder what could possibly go wrong? The risk in this case is a loss of integrity of system and data, loss of confidentiality: With each new client, Superuser SAP* lives up to its comprehensive, cross-client rights and the assigned standard password.
