Support / Ticket Form
All backbone connections to SAP will be switched from January 1, 2020, as SAP has announced on its support page. Afterwards, communication between ABAP System and SAP will only take place via secure HTTPS connections, for which a dedicated user must also be requested in the Support Portal. In all ABAP systems, SAP hints can no longer be obtained via SNOTE via the old OSS RFC connection. The shipment of Early Watch Alerts to SAP is also affected by this change. Here the shipping route must also be changed to the new HTTPS standard. There is also a great need for action for all SAP customers without a current SAP Solution Manager. In the future, SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SPS08 (SPS07 only with additional information) will be required here. For all older releases, communication with SAP will also be impossible from January 2020. This primarily affects the data in the Maintenance Planner, which are then no longer synchronised. This then indirectly affects all future maintenance projects where the use of the Maintenance Planner is indispensable. Especially with regard to upcoming S/4 HANA migrations, this represents a risk to be avoided.
What are we doing here to achieve automation? How do we make these worlds work smoothly together? Simple: In principle, each of the participants stays in his world, which does not have to leave it, because by integrating SAP support into the IT support or the ITSM tool (SAP-ITSM integration), we manage to ensure that the SAP user does not have to go into another system to report a problem, but can ask for help and give his comments on it at the push of a button. On the other hand, support will receive the correct information to respond appropriately to the problem or failure. He sees the user information, runtime information, screenshots, everything that is technically necessary to classify this ticket correctly and of course to solve it quickly. A classic win-win situation has thus arisen.
New SAP Support Connection Overview
In order to continue to communicate with the backbone and to use the services of SAP, it is necessary to move to this new infrastructure by January 2020. This requires the following update: ・ SAP Solution Manager SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SPS07 or SPS08 (recommended) ・ Focused Run: Focused Run 2.00. The download via the Note Wizard (Transaction SNOTE) will only work if the notes are digitally signed. Note the SAP hints here.
