SAP Business Application Programming Interface (BAPI)
Web Services (SOAP)
You would like to know more about what is happening on your SAP systems - then I recommend that you take a closer look at the Solution Manager Usage Procedure Logging (UPL) functionality. What code is often executed? Which database tables are accessed regularly? What unused developments exist? - The UPL provides answers to these questions. You can implement the functionality into your existing SAP landscape without additional licence costs and with moderate effort. What information does the UPL provide? Usage Procedure Logging is used to log and record user behaviour data roughly comparable to the ST03N workload statistics. UPL is able to record the call and execution of the following ABAP objects: Reports Functional Blocks Classes Methods Subroutines SQL Calls In addition, UPL is able to detect dynamic programme calls and generate transparency about the modifications used. All usage data is recorded in detail and automated and, if desired, made available centrally in the SAP Solution Manager. Benefits 1) Hardly measurable Performance Impact 2) Central collection of data of all systems in the SAP Solution Manager's BW 3) No complex setup 4) Once activated, the collector and extractor jobs run regularly and without further manual activities Possible usage scenario If you have Solution Manager 7.2 in use, you can use UPL within the framework of "Custom Code Lifecycle Management" (in German: management of customer developments). After one activation of the BW content and some standard jobs, you select one or more systems for which you want to activate UPL. If you already have the SP05 installed, there is a separate "Guided Procedure" for configuring the UPL in SOLMAN_SETUP.
The application layer is the central component of the SAP R/3 system. This layer is therefore also referred to by SAP as the actual basis system. Within the layer there are application servers and a message server.

Information technology plays an even more important role in the age of digitalisation. Innovation without IT is unimaginable. But it is not just technology itself, but also how it is delivered that matters. The SAP basis sees itself as a partner and contact for new SAP technologies. Further details on the recommendation can be found in the Master's thesis in chapters 7.5 and 9.3.
It is of great importance to keep the knowledge of SAP Basis experts in the company transparent. One possibility is of course to "look over the shoulder" or to ask the expert directly. However, this is very time-consuming and puts a strain on the expert himself.
For administrators, a useful product - "Shortcut for SAP Systems" - is available in the SAP basis area.
This match type matches the indirect assignments of the selected single roles to the user assignments of all composite roles that contain the single roles.
You can also select the various filters (2), activate the filters individually (3), specify clients and users (4) and specify which activities are logged (5).
