The higher the degree of standardisation of operational and maintenance tasks, the more effective the technical operation and maintenance can be. At the same time, this simplifies outsourcing and, if necessary, the use of a cloud solution. CHOOSING AN APPROPRIATE SERVICE FORM Regardless of the chosen service form, as well as outsourcing and outtasking, the overall responsibility for the availability and performance of the IT-supported applications remains with the company. This still means internal coordination of maintenance windows or release booths, which remains in place. Similarly, the services provided by the external partner must be regularly monitored and their quality checked. Therefore, the chosen IT strategy must be chosen from this point of view with the lowest risk. If the technical operation is not sufficiently assessed in the decision, there is a significant business risk.

Remove weak password hashes from the system: Only updating the profile parameter does not provide you with the necessary security. There are still many weak hash values in your database that can be used to attack your system. These must be completely removed from the database. To do this, use the report CLEANUP_PASSWORD_HASH_VALUES. To do this, call the transaction SA38 and enter the name of the report in the input field. Run or F8 executes the programme and cleans your database Report CLEANUP_PASSWORD_HASH_VALUES This programme removes the outdated hash values across all clients.

Two ways to use Security Automation
Site Reliability Engineering(SRE) is the equivalent of SAP Basis in the Google world. Ben Treynor, who has been with Google since 2003 and is considered the godfather of SRE, describes SRE as "what happens when you give operations tasks to a software engineer".

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.

In the area of SAP Basic Administration there are many tasks that occur at long but irregular intervals, such as adjusting the system modifiability. As a result, the know-how is often lacking and it is quickly taken to the next search engine, where long and partially incomplete forum entries make finding the right approach even more difficult. For this reason, I will regularly record recurring tasks from the SAP basis Administration for you in simple tutorials. This blog post will start with the topic system modifiability and client control. If you want to jump directly to a step-by-step guide, just scroll down to the bottom, where I summarised everything once. System Modifiability - What Is It? The system modifiability allows you to set which objects of the repository and the client-independent customisation are modifiable or not. Repository objects can also be customised even further, with respect to the software component and the namespace. You can choose whether an object should be modifiable, restricted, or non-modifiable. In this context, restrictively modifiable means that repository objects can only be created as non-originals (small note: for packages the setting "restricted modifiable" and "modifiable" is identical in the function). Let us now turn to the direct approach to the changeover to system variability. Change system modifiability As a preparation, you should clarify how long the modifiability should take place in your system. I have learned from my clients that it is often desired to set the system to "changeable" for certain tasks from the specialist areas only temporarily. If you have organised this, call the transaction SE06 in the 000 client and click on the button "System Modification". If you do not have permissions for this transaction, you can try either the transaction SE03 —> System Modifiability or the transaction SE09 -> Jump -> Transport Organiser Tools -> System Modifiability (under "Administration"). The following screenshot shows the way across the SE03: Here you can change the desired namespaces and software components depending on your request.

Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" complement missing functions in the SAP basis area.

It is important that the associated approval processes can also be mapped and easily tracked.
