What do the next ten years hold in store?
The SAP Basis Plug-In is backward compatible and follows the release and maintenance strategy of the SAP R/3 Plug-In. SAP delivers it together with the SAP R/3 Plug-In. For more information, see SAP Service Marketplace at basis-plug-in → SAP Plug-In → SAP Basis Plug-In → Releases.
In the initial screen, you can first use the global settings to specify whether changes should be allowed in general. Furthermore, you can define specifically for the software components and namespaces of the Repository objects whether they can be changed at all, or whether changeability should only be possible to a limited extent.
Update of the SAP system to newer versions
SAP Basis is structured as a classic three-tier model. It contains the following components: Database layer (relational database management system) / Application layer (application server and message server) / Presentation layer (graphical user interface).
Cross-client tables can be modified. The control system of another, productive client can thus be undermined and undermined. Quite a lot of power! Did you also know that the SAP system provides a feature that deletes table change protocols (DBTA BLOG table) and that it is effective across all clients? If the table change logs have not been additionally archived via the BC_DBLOGS archiving object, traceability is no longer available. That way, every criminal act within your company can be beautifully covered up. Similarly, full access to batch management allows you to manage all background jobs in all clients with the permission. This allows you to delete old background jobs that have gone unauthorised. There are also some points to consider when managing print jobs. Typically, the following two SAP access permissions are enabled to protect print jobs: S_SPO_DEV (spooler device permissions) S_SPO_ACT (spooler actions). Why? Confidential information in print jobs is not protected against unauthorised disclosure. (Strictly) sensitive print jobs can be read unauthorised or redirected to external printers and printed out. Print jobs are unprotected unless additional SAP access permissions are enabled to protect print output. The print jobs are multi-tenant, which means that the authorisation award should also be well thought through at the point.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.
Ben Treynor, who has been with Google since 2003 and is considered the godfather of SRE, describes SRE as "what happens when you give operations tasks to a software engineer".
Constant further development and growing complexity are placing ever-increasing demands on the SAP infrastructure in terms of performance and feasibility.
