Clear authorization concept

If you look at everything I've described up front in its entirety, it quickly becomes clear which direction things are headed: the SAP basis will increasingly move toward an SRE-centric environment over the next decade. This is what the future of SAP looks like, and I look forward to an exciting journey.

Today, "SAP Basis" often does not mean (only) the software architecture. Instead, the term is not infrequently a task description. This refers to the basic administration of the system: installation and configuration, resource management, maintenance and monitoring of a company's SAP setups. This can include user management, patch management and system monitoring. Backup policy, rights management and daily maintenance tasks are also responsibilities of Basis admins.

It should be mentioned here that it only makes sense to access the tables by reading the SELECT statement to get a quick view of the results. Using the DBACOCKPIT, it is not possible to create entire table structures using Create Table. For such applications, SAP provides other, better options. Another important point is that once a user has the necessary permissions to use the transaction DBACOCKPIT, it can potentially (with appropriate permissions on the tables) access the entire SAP system. For example, a query can be used to read the entire user table. Therefore, the transaction should always be treated with caution and only awarded to administrators. DBACOCKPIT handles the call control permissions similar to the SE16 / SE16N transaction. When the table is called, the S_TABU_DIS or S_TABU_NAM permission object is checked with a specific activity. This means that only the tables or table permission groups for which the corresponding values in the aforementioned permission objects are assigned can be accessed. You can read more about assigning permissions to individual tables here. In addition, you can save SQL statements that you run once, and run them again at any time to recognise changes in the result set without having to reformulate the SQL statement each time. The editor also allows you to start the query for SQL statements in the background. The result is obtained by calling the transaction SM37, in which the result is output in a spool file.

Parameters in the SAP create a high degree of flexibility. Profiles can be used to configure the system for almost any purpose. But with such a large number of parameters one quickly loses an overview of the influence of each parameter. For storage management alone, there are 20 different parameters that can be changed at different points in the SAP system. This article brings order to the mess and explains the most important parameters. There are three types of memory in the SAP system for a work process: ・ Roll Area - Local Memory Area for a Work Process ・ Extended Memory - Global Memory Area for All Work Processes ・ Private Storage /Dynamic Memory (Private Memory/Heap Memory) - Private Memory Overview of SAP System Memory Regions Parameters for the Rolling Range When a user starts a programme, a role area is created for that programme instance through a workprocess. The user context is stored in this memory area. The size of the roll area for a work process is determined by the ztta/roll_first parameter. If the storage area is not sufficient, a portion of the Advanced Memory will be allocated for the user context, the size of which will be determined by ztta/roll_extension, ztta/roll_extension_dia, and ztta/roll_extension_nondia. The latter two override ztta/roll_extension if used and offer the possibility to set different quotas for dialogue and non-dialogue work processes.

Use "Shortcut for SAP Systems" to accomplish many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.

Even dialog systems are no longer in operation only from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., but between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. or longer.

Support packages intended for another release or an uninstalled add-on will not appear in the queue, even if they are loaded into your SAP system.
