Installation of SAP applications
SAP Basis Support ensures secure operation of the SAP system landscape. For proper operation of the SAP system, the database and operating systems must be checked on a daily basis.
The tasks of an SAP Basis administrator are management and administration of SAP systems. In practice, it means taking responsibility for the maintenance environment of the systems, their cooperation, updating, solving user problems and efficiency issues (concerning the network, databases or operating systems), backup copies and architecture. Another task of this position is also to follow new market trends and propose compliant solutions with them.
SHAPING ARCHITECTURE POLICIES
SAP Basis is responsible for the smooth operation of the SAP Basis system. The SAP Basis system is like an operating system for R/3 as well as S/4. Every operating system, such as Windows, provides an environment in which programs developed for that environment can run, such as MS Office. Likewise, the SAP Basis system provides an environment in which SAP programs can run. In any R/3 or S/4 system, there is a database server, such as HANA, where the database resides. It provides the necessary data to all other applications. The data here is not only data tables, but also applications, system control tables and user data.
User name without restrictions - critical? Depending on the release of the SAP_BASIS component in your system, invisible special characters may end up in the user name. This is especially critical if only spaces or alternate spaces are used for the user name when creating a new user. In Unicode systems, "alternative" spaces, so-called "wide spaces", can be used in addition to the normal space character (hexadecimal value 20). For example, the key combination "ALT+0160" can be used to insert non-breaking spaces. If a user is now created whose user name consists exclusively of such alternative spaces, this can be confusing. This is because entries for this user ID do appear in change documents, but the impression is created that the entry was created by a non-existent / deleted user. This circumstance can lead to confusion. In addition, certain special characters in the user name can also lead to errors, for example in the Change and Transport System (CTS). This is because the user name is also used in the CTS-ORG to create a file with the same name in the transport directory. Furthermore, there are letters/characters that look identical in different alphabets, but have a different hexadecimal value in the character set. This means that confusion in user names cannot be completely ruled out. Seemingly identical user names then stand for different users.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" simplifies tasks in the area of the SAP basis and complements missing functions of the standard.
SAP thus provides the underlying basis (hence the name) that enables various SAP applications to be interoperable and portable across operating systems and databases.
This leads to very precise statements and a reduction of false positives.
