SAP Basis - trends for the coming years
Customizing of the notifications according to customer requirements
SAP Basis ensures smooth operation of the SAP Basis system. The SAP Basis system is a kind of operating system of the R/3 system or SAP ERP. It includes the three layers database, application and presentation. In addition, Basis includes many SAP middleware programs and administration tools. With Basis SAP applications can be used compatible and independent of operating system and database and can be enriched with the necessary data.

SPAM/SAINT updates (SPAM update) provide updates and improvements to SAP Patch Manager and SAP Add-On Installation Tool. There is always one SPAM update per review that will be updated over time. The version can be found in the short description, e.g.: SPAM/SAINT update - version 4.6A/0001 A SPAM update always comes first in the list of support packages in the SAPNet - R/3 frontend, i.e. before the other support packages. We recommend that you always install the latest version of a SPAM update before installing Support Packages. Prerequisites You can successfully commit a SPAM update only if there are no broken support packages in the system. If there are cancelled support packages, a dialogue box will alert you. You have two options: You will first complete the queue and then the SPAM update. You reset the status of the queue, play the SPAM update first and then the queue. You can reset the status of the Queue by using the Add Status Reset Queue. Note that your system is inconsistent when you reset the queue after objects have already been imported (for example, after an error in the DDIC_IMPORT step and following). Therefore, you should only reset the queue if DDIC_IMPORT was cancelled before the step. For more information, see Steps of the SPAM [page 26]. Note that starting with SPAM/SAINT version 11, it is no longer possible to reset the queue after the DDIC_IMPORT step and following. How to Check if the SPAM update you are offering is newer than the one you are receiving. The current SPAM version appears in the title bar of the SPAM window. To play the latest SPAM update, select Support Package Insert SPAMUpdate. SPAM updates are automatically confirmed after successful insertion. Load Support Package Usage Before you can insert Support Packages, you must first load the appropriate Support Packages.
STAUTHTRACE System trace for authorization checks
This step prompts you to customise your modifications to Repository objects by calling the transaction SPAU. EPILOGUE In this step the insertion is completed. Among other things, it is checked that the queue has been fully processed. SPAM: Troubleshooting The SAP Patch Manager performs several steps during the recording. If errors occur, SPAM will interrupt the playback to ensure consistency of the recording. After fixing the error, you can resume playback. When you cancel, a dialogue box appears with the information on which step and why the editing failed. This dialogue box is also available when you select Jump Status and then Queue, Support Package or SPAM Update (View Support Package Status (page 29)). Depending on the processing step in which the error occurred, the dialogue box will provide you with additional specific assistance to correct the error. You may also need to reset the status of a Support Package [page 36]. If you are having problems downloading Support Packages from the SAPNet - R/3 frontend, please see Note 34376. If you are having problems working with SPAM, read the note 17381This note gives you an overview of known problems and their solutions. For a list of the most important information about Online Correction Support (OCS), see Note 97620, which is updated regularly. If you are unable to resolve your issue with the information provided or with the following information, then record a problem message in the SAPNet - R/3 frontend with the information from the error dialogue box and send it to the BC-UPG-OCS topic group. Note 97660 when capturing the problem message. See also: Generation Error [Page 30].

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.

New risks in SAP HANA: In addition to the known risks, there are also new risks from the use of SAP HANA. A very good example are frequently used web applications that represent something new in the SAP area. In contrast to an SAP ERP system, HANA systems consist mainly of web applications, which were considered optional in the previous versions. These web applications can be found by various search engines on the Internet. This also applies to SAP Portal or Netweaver. There are URL schemes that help locate the system. This also applies to other SAP systems that use Web applications. This makes the new technology vulnerable to typical web attacks. SQL Injection, ABAP Code Injection, or XSS are all included. All risks known for a normal SAP system also apply to a SAP-HANA system. The data is stored unencrypted in RAM. Only then does the system gain this speed advantage. This results in risks such as a read-out by memory scraping malware. These pick up data in memory. Encryption costs performance, so it is not used by default. Especially during a migration HANA runs in a parallel system, therefore at least one new system comes to your landscape. Also note: HANA has its own tools and settings that need to be known and configured. The bottom line is that the system simply needs more attention when operating. Many settings often result in more errors. Three - points - HANA Security Plan 1) Roles and permissions In a previous SAP system, roles and permissions are certainly one of the main pillars of a secure system. Roles and permissions work differently in a HANA system. There are two types of users: 1) Default (limited): With this type of user, there are different access methods to the database. For example, the JDBC or HTTP technologies are used to give two examples.

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

The 5 most common errors in SAP test management In this blog post I would like to discuss the 5 most common errors in SAP test management, which in my experience occur regularly in this area.
