AL08 System-wide list of user sessions
This access method depends solely on the rights assigned to the user. System users: Users of this user group are comparable to SAP*. They act as administrator in the system. Therefore, they should be deactivated / set to inactive as soon as possible, as soon as the system operation is ensured. You should still be aware of the SAP ERP environment to address this security risk. In a HANA system, there are privileges instead of permissions. The difference is first of all in terms of terminology. Nevertheless, the permissions are assigned differently (directly / indirectly) via the assignment of roles. These are thus accumulations of privileges. As in older SAP systems, system users must be disabled and certain roles that already exist must be restricted. Compared to an SAP ERP system, small apps are allowed instead of large applications. In this case, attention should be paid to an individual authorisation. It should be a matter of course for users to have implemented secure password rules. Settings Securing the system also means securing the underlying infrastructure. Everything from the network to the host's operating system must be secured. When looking at the system landscape, it is striking that the new technology brings many connections that need to be secured. The SAP Gateway, which is responsible for the connection between backend and frontend, is also a security risk and must be considered. All security settings of existing and future components must be validated to HANA compatibility. Secure communication of connections is obtained when you restrict access where possible. Encryption of the data of a HANA system is disabled by default. Be sure to encrypt sensitive data anyway. Especially data that is archived. If an attack is made on your system, you should be able to run forensic analysis, so you should enable the audit log. Moreover, few users should have access to it.

SAP, as one of the world's leading software providers with over 100,000 employees, represents a central component of their system landscape for many companies. Thanks to the many different modules, such as "Finance" and "Human Capital Management", as well as the wide range of customization options, a broad field of professions and possible areas of focus has opened up here in almost 50 years.
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.

SAP Basis refers to the administration of SAP system that includes activities like installation and configuration, load balancing, and performance of SAP applications running on Java stack and SAP ABAP. This includes the maintenance of different services related to database, operating system, application and web servers in SAP system landscape and stopping and starting the system.

Do you want to allow an employee access to exactly one view maintenance dialogue, but he should not be able to search for other care views in the SM30? This can be done easily with a parameter transaction. Learn how to create such a transaction step by step here. To create a parameter transaction, navigate to the SE93 first. Here you can create all types of transactions. The following dialogue will open: After pressing the "Create" button, a popup will open, on which you select the radio button "Transaction with parameters (parameter transaction)". In addition, type a short description as usual and confirm. The following dialogue will open: The transaction code must be specified here first. If you want to skip the entry dialogue when invoking the parameter transaction, and there is no way to open tables other than the one you want, make sure to select "Skip Entry Image". Furthermore, the GUI properties of the SM30 should be inherited so that the parameter transaction can be started with the same software. Configuration of the parameters In the lower part of the dialogue you will find a table ready for input. Here you can use the search help (F4).

"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.

Afterwards you simply have to output the complete list via "Object > Output complete list".

The support packages associated with the calculated queue are green.

A note box in which data of all kinds can be quickly filed and retrieved. This is what Scribble Papers promises. At first, the program looks very spartan. But once a small structure is in place, you realise the great flexibility of this little helper.
