In addition to the consultants working in the individual SAP modules, there is a subarea here that is not directly apparent to many and whose activities seem to be quite opaque: SAP Basis. The smooth operation of SAP systems as the heart of many companies is ensured by the work of SAP Basis administrators.

Especially in larger companies, which also have multiple locations in different countries, it is often necessary to grant different employees the same permissions for different levels of organisation, such as accounting circles. In order to make maintenance and maintenance of the system easy in such a situation, it is useful to set the inheritance principle for SAP permissions. How does SAP Permissions Inheritance work? An inheritance is always about a master object passing certain properties to a derived (sub) object. Therefore, these properties do not need to be maintained several times. Also, changes to the master object are passed directly to the derived objects. This allows easier maintenance and drastically minimises the error rate. In the case of SAP Permission Inheritance, the required permissions are bundled in a Upper or Master role. Only the organisational levels have to be maintained in the roles derived from them. The permissions are automatically pulled from the master role. Create Inheritance for SAP Permissions The following shows how to create and use inheritances for SAP permissions. This requires only two steps: Creating a master role and defining derived roles. Step 1: Create a master role Inheritance always requires a parent role, because all properties are inherited from it. If this role, in which all shared permissions are bundled, is missing, the first step is to create this master role. To do this, open the PFCG transaction and enter the desired name of the master role in the Name field. It is possible to identify master and derived roles by using naming conventions. The "Single Role" button will then be used to create the desired role. In the following example I create the master role "findepartment_r".

Overall, SAP Basis operation requires not only a high-quality technical infrastructure, but also distinct know-how and experience. This is because the management of the underlying SAP NetWeaver and SAP HANA platforms has become extremely complex.

Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.

A BW system often plays a very central role in larger companies. Here the data from the various connected source systems are analysed and reported centrally. A previous customer of mine had a BW system, to which a total of over 20 other SAPP production systems were connected. With such a large and mostly living system landscape, it is normal that individual systems are dismantled from time to time. However, especially with large SAP landscapes, there are strict regulations regarding the permissions of technical RFC users. For this reason, the simple "right-click —> delete" of a source system in RSA1 will often not lead to the target, but rather to a failed permission check. With this blog post, I'll show you a workaround on how to clean a source system from a BW system using the RSAR_LOGICAL_SYSTEM_DELETE and RSAP_BIW_DISCONNECT function blocks.

Some missing SAP basic functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
