Migration of your ERP landscape to SAP on HANA or S/4HANA
Select the transport order from the development system that was rejected in the quality system. This is technically repackaged into the Q-System in a new order and transported to the quality system. At this point you will again have the possibility to perform the approval step you really want to perform.
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.

Project successes should also be documented and circulated as success stories of the SAP basis or made available to the SAP basis stakeholders to highlight the importance of the SAP basis. These success stories can be shared from the grassroots or from the outside, for example. Examples include CIO communications or project reports. BENEFITS & CONSEQUENCES The added value of the implementation of the recommendations described above lies in the guaranteed operational stability and operational safety. In addition, a company and in particular an IT organisation with a strong SAP basis receives a competent and sustainable partner for SAP topics and technologies, who is always looking at the SAP picture in general. Furthermore, all business and IT departments are aware of the role and the scope of the SAP basis. This means that you can contact them as the right person in good time. There is a lower risk that certain areas may develop shadow IT related to SAP topics and technologies due to lack of transparency.
SAP Basis is the foundation of any SAP system. You can find a lot of useful information about it on this page: www.sap-corner.de.
So-called Access Control Lists (ACL) offer a good possibility to secure your gateway in order to exclude unwanted external accesses to the database of the application server. With the help of the ACL files reginfo and secinfo an access control can be implemented, in which allowed as well as forbidden communication partners can be defined. The reginfo file controls the registration of external programs on the gateway, which means that rules can be defined that allow or prohibit programs. With the help of the file secinfo you can define which users are allowed to start an external program. To be able to use these files, you must set the parameters gw/reg_info and gw/sec_info (transaction RZ11). For more information, refer to SAP Note 1408081.
The "Shortcut for SAP Systems" tool is ideal for doing many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
However, manual provisioning processes are by their very nature a source of errors.
The freeware Scribble Papers is a "note box" in which all kinds of data can be stored. It takes in typed texts as well as graphics and entire documents. The data is then organised in folders and pages.
The task of SAP Basis is to ensure trouble-free, interoperable and portable (mobile) operation of SAP systems in the company.
