Implementation of the Transport Management System (TMS)
SAP Administration I
Always the latest version: Your system will always be up to date and you will have access to the latest versions. Patches are performed by the external SAP Basis team.
The positioning depends strongly on the previously identified target groups and must be justified accordingly. Positioning is extremely important for the SAP basis. It is primarily a matter of positioning within the IT organisation and defining or positioning the other IT departments that can be considered as competitors in the context of this step. STEP 6: OWN EMPLOYEES This step will identify the necessary skills and training of their own employees necessary to fulfil the objectives and provide the service. The necessary skills and roles for the SAP basis are explained in detail in the recommendation Skills & Roles.

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.
The application servers provide the services for running SAP applications. In practice, companies usually decide to use a separate application server for each application.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.
These permissions are expressed in a role by permission objects, as in any ABAP report.
After the query is executed, the transactions entered will now show those that the user can already perform.
