Integration / Interfaces
Within SAP R/3 Enterprise, the SAP Basis Plug-In is a prerequisite for you to use the SAP R/3 Plug-In. SAP Basis Plug-In and SAP R/3 Plug-In must always have the same release level, for example PI 2004.1 and PI Basis 2004.1. If you plan to upgrade SAP R/3 Plug-In within SAP R/3 Enterprise, you must also upgrade SAP Basis Plug-In. As of SAP Basis Plug-In 2005.1, the release levels of the two plug-ins no longer need to correspond. However, the SAP R/3 Plug-In Support Package for PI 2004.1, which contains new interfaces, still requires a specific SAP Basis Plug-In. For example, SAP R/3 Plug-In Support Package 10 for SAP Plug-In 2004.1 requires SAP Basis Plug-In 2005.1.
This is the heart of the SAP system. In the classic three-tier model, this would be the logic or control layer. One or more application servers host the necessary services for the various applications on this layer. These application servers provide all the services required by the SAP applications. In theory, a single server could fill this role. In practice, these services are in most cases distributed among several servers, each serving different applications.
STANDARDISATION & AUTOMATION
You can control the access rights as usual. The big advantage of CMC tab configuration is that you can easily grant or withdraw group access to specific tabs. This gives you the ability to prepare background access permissions and then unlock all permissions by clicking on the CMC tab configuration. On the other hand, this allows you to remove accesses without having to edit any existing permissions. Have you already experienced CMC tab configuration or have questions about the application? I welcome any suggestions you may make as a comment.
As a user of the group, you cannot see tabs either. Now select the applications / tabs to which the group should be accessed (with CTRL you can select several) and select the Grant button. Note: Select the Grant drop-down menu using the button and not the drop-down menu! Use the drop-down menu to determine if and how far users of the group you are currently editing can make CMC tab configurations to other groups / users! Select Grant for the desired tabs. 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. To do this, go to the desired tab (in the example is the universe), select Manage —> Top-Level Security —> All Universes (the last point differs depending on the tab). Confirm the hint that appears and assign at least the following right for the groups you want: General —> General —> Objects View. Once this right is granted, the tab will also appear on the CMC home page. You can then see the tabs on the CMC home page.
The "Shortcut for SAP Systems" tool is ideal for doing many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
It will also be of interest to those responsible for configuring the various components for importing data and customer reporting.
When you develop these applications, you should think about securing them early.
