Advantages of an IDM system
Why should we even have an individual SAP Security Check performed? Your SAP authorisation concept is designed to ensure the security and protection of data against unauthorised access and abuse. The technical complexity of SAP systems and the ongoing adaptations of business processes often lead to unknown security vulnerabilities. In addition, the increasing digital networking with business partners offers further attack points on your SAP system. SAP Security Check gives you an overview of the security situation of your SAP systems. This will identify potential risks that could jeopardise the safe operation of your IT landscape. Your starting situation The ongoing changes in your IT systems lead to unrecognised security vulnerabilities and your auditors will regularly report to you in the final report on abuses in the authorisation concept. The legal requirements (e.g. EU guidelines) to secure your business processes and IT systems have not yet been implemented and the increasing networking with business partners presents new challenges to your security system. The security-related system settings and permissions settings applied to your SAPS systems are poorly documented, which in many cases causes the system settings to allow extensive critical access unchecked. Critical SAP permissions, profiles, and roles identify permissions that allow critical operations to be performed in terms of security or from a legal or business perspective are called "critical permissions" by SAP. The granting of critical allowances must therefore generally be carried out with particular care and should therefore be planned in advance. Technical and organisational measures and processes must then ensure that the desired level of safety is implemented.
The following folders on the system will then be completely deleted: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SAP Shared\BW delete C:\Program Files (x86)\Delete SAP C:\Program Files\SAP This completes the CleanUp phase. Install new version SAP GUI and Bex (BI Addon) The first step is to install SAP GUI and Business Explorer (Bex). Please select and install the following in the installer (see screenshot): SAP GUI Suite under SAP GUI for Windows (=Frontend) Business Explorer complete The progress bar often stays at about 93%. It takes a few minutes to complete the installation.
These are your tasks as SAP Basis Administrator:
Automatic error handling when a job is aborted is desirable and useful in most cases. The conscious processing and consideration of error situations in job chains - also at step level - can help to reduce manual effort. Error situations should be catchable: If they are non-critical elements, the following job can perhaps be started anyway. In the case of critical errors, a new attempt should be made or an alert issued so that an administrator can intervene manually. Simple batch jobs are usually not capable of this. The goal of an automated environment is not to have to react manually to every faulty job.
After the addition of Java Stack (the applications developed in J2EE, BSP, JSP, etc.), the security standard for business processes was increased. Both ABAP and Java stack can be monitored from one platform. Netweaver supports standard protocols such as HTTP, SMTP, XML, SOAP, SSO, WEBDAV, WSDL, WMLSSO, SSL, X.509 and Unicode format (text processing representation).
Some missing SAP basic functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
This can also lead to the complete basic activity being carried out by external partners, to which a dependency relationship then arises.
If a company chooses to tackle the area of e-learning itself and also to create the content for it itself, there is a certain challenge.
