SAP license maintenance
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.
For the SAP basis and its employees, the change in self-understanding results in an attractive, responsible and demanding working environment. Technological diversity can be controlled and kept to the minimum necessary. This includes an overview of the existing interfaces and a controllable data flow with the associated guarantee of data security.
Handling SAP day-to-day business such as administration, maintenance and configuration of your SAP systems
In addition to purely administrative tasks, SAP administrators are also responsible for communication. They cooperate with the company's internal support departments and work with them on ways to help users solve and avoid any problems and pitfalls when using SAP solutions. For internal purposes, the SAP administrator also prepares documentation and uses it to search for errors, the cause of which he or she tries to combat. If necessary, he or she communicates with decision-makers in the company in order to be able to implement improvements, adjustments and optimizations with regard to the SAP software.
Basis is a set of programs and tools that interface with databases, operating systems, communication protocols, and business applications (such as FI, CO, MM, etc). The full form of BASIS is "Business Application Software Integrated Solution".
The "Shortcut for SAP Systems" tool is ideal for doing many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
