Support for Basis Projects
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.
SAP Basis is structured as a classic three-tier model. It contains the following components:
To ensure audit-proof traceability, you should only allow software components and namespaces to be changed on a production system in exceptional cases and for a limited period of time. This should only be done restrictively to prevent manipulation at the production level.
The presentation layer is based on the software components, collectively called "SAP GUI". This includes several possible implementation variants: for example, SAP GUI for HTML (Web GUI) and Web Dynpro for ABAP (WDA). Since the respective GUI depends entirely on the concrete application, the presentation layer looks very different in practice.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" is a PC application that simplifies or even facilitates many activities in the SAP basis.
If you still do not see any applications/tabs, it is because the group/user lacks the generic display right at the top level of the respective tab.
SAP delivers it together with the SAP R/3 Plug-In.
