Transaction Code Description
In the SAP NetWeaver BI Authorization Concept lesson, the training participant is familiarized with the authorization functions of the SAP Business Information Warehouse. The differences between the authorization concept for ERP systems and the authorization concept for NetWeaver BI are taught.
If this parameter is exceeded by a process, the query is cancelled before it could be executed. Both parameters are limited by the parameter abap/heap_area_total. Of course, there are several other storage parameters that would exceed the scope of this article. You can read their function in the SAP documentation.

Once you have met all the requirements described above, you can begin to prepare your system for processing digitally signed notes. To do this, the SAP Note with the number 2408073 must be recorded. This consists of a few steps for manual preparation, some automatically executable activities, and steps to rework the note. It is recommended not to change the file name after downloading. Note 2408073 has a file extension of "sar" and will first be unpacked with SAPCAR. There is a zip archive in it. The text file in it can be loaded into the Note Assistant with the SNOTE transaction via the Note upload. Once you have completed these steps, you can begin to install the note. The steps are detailed in the note itself and in a document attached to the note. Therefore, only a few points that need to be considered are highlighted below. When creating and clicking on Save the "CWBDS" object, a message may appear prompting you to select an object from the permitted namespace. Here the cursor can be placed in the object field and confirmed with Enter, then the query is made after a transport order. When creating the message texts in the "SCWN" message class, it is normal that after saving the changes several times (as many times as messages have been created) the question about the transport order must be confirmed. In addition, when creating the message texts, it should be noted that the texts provided in the tutorial attached to the note are available in English. If you are working on a German system, you should translate the texts into the German language when inserting them. The English texts can then be inserted as translations in the same window. To do this, select "Jump -> Translate". Conclusion It is a popular approach among hackers to use updates that are usually intended to fix bugs or increase security to inject malicious code into the system.
At best, for the time in which an emergency user is in service, a separate log of the activities undertaken is written, which can then be evaluated. In the following chapter I would like to explain our best practice approach to implementing an emergency user concept. Our approach to using an emergency user concept We have had good experience with the use of the Xiting Authorizations Management Suite (XAMS) in this area. This suite consists of various modules for creating role concepts, managing permissions including a permission concept, and also enables the implementation of an emergency user concept. XAMS works here with a limited time assignment of reference users with extended privileges to enable the emergency user concept. A self-service application may be made with a justification and a period for allocating special rights. The application window is illustrated in an example in the following screenshot: Evaluation of the use of the Emergency User Concept Once this request has been initiated, a new mode will be opened for the user, in which he can work with the extended rights. In addition, depending on the configuration, a stored workflow can be initiated as an approval process, or pre-defined controllers will be notified by email to verify activities. Once the session has ended with the emergency user, the responsible persons will receive another email with the logged activity of the user with the extended permissions. One of these logs is shown in the next screenshot: These logs can also be viewed in the system. Here you will get an overview of all the sessions that have been run. In addition, it is possible to approve activities with special rights after an evaluation. This allows the controller to get an overview of the activities undertaken with the emergency user. If you are using this Emergency User Concept and following these steps, you can ensure: Each user on the production system retains his or her original necessary rights.
