Load Support Packages into Other Systems
If your system is already above SAP NetWeaver Release 7.0, then you must either import SAP Note 1731549 or a corresponding Support Package. Afterwards, when creating new users, it is no longer possible to assign user names that are only composed of variants of spaces or other invisible special characters. Important: Changes to already existing users with these names or their deletion option are not affected by this! The SAP Note also adds the customizing switch BNAME_RESTRICT, whereupon you can control yourself whether alternative spaces are allowed to appear in certain places in the user name. For this, the following values must be set in the customizing table PRGN_CUST: NO = The alternative spaces are still allowed in the user name. ALL = The character set is reduced to a defined range, excluding certain special characters because they have specific meanings in certain operating systems or databases. This predefined character set is: ABCDEFGHIJKLNMOPQRSTUVWXYZ_0123456789,;-§&()={[]}+#. FME = The letters F, M and E stand for Front, Middle and End. With an 'X' in this three-digit switch value you can now explicitly specify at which position in the user name no wide spaces and control characters may occur. All combinations are possible, e.g.: XME = None of these special characters may occur at the BEGINNING of the user name. XMX = In the user name none of these special characters may occur at the BEGINNING and at the END. FME = One of these special characters may occur at any position in the user name (this corresponds to the default setting, i.e. as if no entry was maintained in PRGN_CUST for the switch). SAP recommends the use of the value ALL.

If the additional memory in the Advanced Storage Area is still not sufficient for the user context, the optional second role area can be used. The size of the second roll range is determined by the difference between the parameters ztta/roll_first and ztta/roll_area. Rolling range has been eliminated in kernel release 7.4, so these parameters are obsolete from then on. Instead, the user context is now stored directly in the Advanced Memory.
SU01 User maintenance
The dataowner should be the adm of the target system, which you can change (in the Unix console) with "chown adm K12345.DEV" (respectively R12345.DEV for the data file). To change the access permissions, you can use the command "chmod 664 K12345.DEV". Attach transport jobs in the SAP system Once this has been done, you can attach the transport orders in your SAP system to the import queue. This is done by using the STMS -> Import Overview (F5) to display the import queues. Select the import queue of the target system with a double click. After that, you will receive a pop-up under "Additions"->"More orders"->"Attach", which you can use to attach the transport orders to the import queue. In the pop-up you have to name the exact transport order. The correct name for this is as follows: The first three characters are the file extension of the two files you copied into the transport directory. The last characters consist of the file name of the cofiles file. In our example transport the transport would be called "DEVK12345" (deriving from the cofiles file K12345.DEV) This should now return a positive message from SAP and the transport is attached to the import queue. Now you can import this transport into the system just like any ordinary transport order. Step-by-step Summary Copy Cofiles/data file to transport directory Normally /usr/sap/trans, if not —> AL11 -> DIR_TRANS Customise file owners and permissions chown adm chmod 664 In SAP system: STMS -> Import Overview -> Select Import Queue -> Additions -> Additional Jobs -> Attach Enter Transport Jobs ().

All topics are relevant, which may also be of interest to a customer. Ideally, you get a balanced communication structure in the communication triangle between marketing, the target group and your own employees. Internal communication is an important aspect for the SAP basis. It is primarily a matter of passing on or communicating your own services, IT products and positioning to your employees. STEP 10: PLANNING The planning provides a translation of the previously agreed definitions into concrete measures. A description of the measure shall be provided. The measures can now be scheduled and included in a cost overview. Above all, it is important to plan realistically and to consider dependencies. This step, too, is of great interest to the SAP basis and is necessary to translate the previously agreed specifications into a concrete marketing concept of the SAP basis.

"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.

From a purely technical point of view, each generated authorization role contains a profile from which a user receives the actual authorization objects and authorization characteristics.
