ESTABLISHING A SAP INNOVATION TEAM
SAP Netweaver - BI Authorization Concept
The application layer is the central component of the SAP R/3 system. This layer is therefore also referred to by SAP as the actual basis system. Within the layer there are application servers and a message server.
A BW system often plays a very central role in larger companies. Here the data from the various connected source systems are analysed and reported centrally. A previous customer of mine had a BW system, to which a total of over 20 other SAPP production systems were connected. With such a large and mostly living system landscape, it is normal that individual systems are dismantled from time to time. However, especially with large SAP landscapes, there are strict regulations regarding the permissions of technical RFC users. For this reason, the simple "right-click —> delete" of a source system in RSA1 will often not lead to the target, but rather to a failed permission check. With this blog post, I'll show you a workaround on how to clean a source system from a BW system using the RSAR_LOGICAL_SYSTEM_DELETE and RSAP_BIW_DISCONNECT function blocks.
What does TREX have to do with SAP Solution Manager?
In every company with several SAP systems, there is a person responsible for the complete SAP Basis topics, usually there is even a separate department for this. This person ensures the trouble-free operation of the SAP systems. The person responsible also accompanies maintenance work or upgrades and intervenes in special situations, such as poor performance. Even for companies that hand over operation of the SAP Basis to an external service provider, there are often tasks from the user and authorization management environment at this point.
Today, most customers rely on an infrastructure abstraction layer, whether it's VMware or one of the cloud hypervisors. So base administrators need to know how to provision and manage systems in the cloud.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes it easier and quicker to complete a number of SAP basis tasks.

SAP Basis refers to the administration of SAP system that includes activities like installation and configuration, load balancing, and performance of SAP applications running on Java stack and SAP ABAP. This includes the maintenance of different services related to database, operating system, application and web servers in SAP system landscape and stopping and starting the system.

If Authority Checks are performed here, e.g. to query or change data on the backend server, the corresponding role must be authorised.
