How to create a parameter transaction for the SM30
Due to the technology diversity, including in the SAP product portfolio, the support by a single silo unit SAP basis is almost impossible. Likewise, there are many activities that are located for historical reasons in the SAP basis and in parallel in the non-SAP area. In this respect, the separation between SAP and Non-SAP must be examined and, if possible, eliminated by standardisation, integration and centralisation. For example, the issue of output management can be set up in a team that has knowledge in the SAP printing area as well as in the non-SAP printing area and has contact points in the SAP basis. From the SAP basis, tools must be made available to the non-SAP areas to support them in their work in the SAP environment.
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.
Job scheduling: your system needs to run various automatic background jobs that consume resources. Your administrator must carefully schedule these tasks when user demand is low so they don't impact performance.
SAP Basis ensures smooth operation of the SAP Basis system. The SAP Basis system is a kind of operating system of the R/3 system or SAP ERP. It includes three layers: database, application and presentation. In addition, Basis includes many SAP middleware programs and administration tools. With Basis SAP applications can be used compatible and independent of operating system and database and can be enriched with the necessary data.
The "Shortcut for SAP Systems" tool is ideal for doing many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
Therefore, they should be deactivated / set to inactive as soon as possible, as soon as the system operation is ensured.
SAP Basis is the foundation of any SAP system. You can find a lot of useful information about it on this page: www.sap-corner.de.
This flows into our consulting as a further plus point and creates not only smooth functionality but also cost efficiency of your individual system landscape.
