ITIL stands for The IT Infrastructure Library. ITIL is a summary of "best practices" rules for professional implementation of IT service management. ITIL has established itself as an international standard in the area of IT business processes. The ITIL set of rules describes the processes, the organizational structure and the tools required for IT infrastructure. ITIL is based on the economic added value that IT operations provide for the company. itSMF Deutschland eV has further developed and improved these standards, and at the same time operates a portal for exchanging knowledge and experience.
As a hint: The menu tab "Jump" allows you to set all namespaces or software components simultaneously to "modifiable" or "non-modifiable". However, before you can rearrange the namespace and software components, you must also adjust the global setting accordingly. With Save or CTRL+S you can now save your new settings and you have already set the system modifiability.

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.
Of course, SAP administration is carried out by certified and experienced employees. This provides security for the SAP installations as well as for the sometimes quite complex update and upgrade projects.
Use "Shortcut for SAP Systems" to accomplish many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
For this purpose, the variant "Roles according to complex selection criteria" has to be executed in the SUIM.
Incidentally, the problem arises particularly frequently after role transports: If an authorization role is changed in the development system and then transported to the production system, the current profile is not automatically assigned to the users with the respective role.
