Why does a company need an SAP Basis department? [Using our company as an example]
This point may sound a little trivial at first. Who tests, surely documents this? Experience shows: Yes, but often patchy. In the case of unsuccessful tests, where subsequent or additional developments are due and the cause of the error is not directly apparent at first glance, good result documentation often pays off. This saves developers time in communication and effort by re-imagining the scenario. At this point, the SAP Solution Manager offers extensive opportunities to manage templates and result documents centrally and in the individual test plans. Automated testing only Automated testing offers many advantages, whether it is a higher software quality through more comprehensive test coverage or reusability of test cases. However, it does not always make sense to use only automated test scripts. A less good choice is the test automation for frequently changing software or processes, because the maintenance effort can be enormous. At this point, it is often more effective to run manual test runs instead of spending a lot of time customising test scripts. Poor test preparation The relevant processes have been defined, the test plans have been created and the test period has begun - so can testing begin? Not always. Lack of test preparation often leads to unplanned additional time costs. Sometimes the testers were not familiar with the test environment or no one thought about taking care of a sufficient and current test data set (master data, movement data). Make sure you have thought of everything you need! (missing test data, unrepresentative test environment, unstable).
SAP Basis is the foundation of every SAP system. On this page you can find out what is behind the term and what SAP Basis is responsible for in detail.
How to lock (SU01) and unlock (SU10) an SAP user
Using profile parameters, we can configure everything in the SAP system. Some parameters are dynamically modifiable, which means that they can be changed without restarting the system. However, these changes are not permanent, i.e. after a system restart, the pre-set profile parameters are used again. Other parameters, however, are static, i.e. only with a restart and only permanently modifiable. Most profile parameters for memory allocation are actually static. However, there is the possibility to adapt it dynamically with the report RSMEMORY. Read how to find out if a parameter is static or dynamic and how to use the RSMEMORY report to dynamically adjust the memory allocation parameters. RZ11 - Maintenance of profile parameters The transaction RZ10 gives us information about profiles, which in turn contain different profile parameters. In the transaction RZ11, however, it is possible to view information about individual parameters, provided that you know their name. As you can read in our Memory Parameter Post, the following 5 parameters are particularly important for memory management: abap/heap_area_total abap/heap_area_dia abap/heap_area_nondia ztta/roll_extension_dia ztta/roll_extension_nondia If you don't know exactly what a parameter might be called, it's worth using the F4 help here. For example, for the parameter abab/heap_area_dia, the RZ11 outputs: Description of the parameter abap/heap_area_dia in the RZ11 As you can see here, it is not a dynamic parameter. Now it is rather sorry if you want to test whether there is enough memory available to restart the system again and again. For this purpose, there is the RSMEMORY report. RSMEMORY - Test your memory allocation strategy Report RSMEMORY Report View No documentation or value help available here, but SAP documentation tells you how to use the report. This first distinguishes between dialogue and non-dialogue work processes. That is, in the first area you can set Extended Memory (Storage Class 1) and Heap Memory (Storage Class 2) for Dialogue Workprocesses, and in the second area you can set it for non-dialogue workprocesses.
SAP Basis is a middleware tool for applications, operating system and database. The SAP Basis consultant should be able to perform the following tasks.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems" a tool is available that greatly facilitates some tasks in the SAP basis.
