Advantages of an IDM system
Test of EDI data transmission In the transaction WE05 all incoming and outgoing messages and IDocs as well as the status of the IDocs are displayed. If the order data is correctly entered and the partner profile is correctly configured, the IDoc is listed as successfully processed.
Let me show you how EasyReCert can simplify this process. Automatic representation of employees & role assignment Each user of the application automatically receives the employees assigned to him. In the first step, the user verifies the assignment of the employees assigned to him. In the second step, the user is shown the roles of his employees. It is now possible to mark the assignment of the role as correct or incorrect. Understandable explanation of the roles Often roles have no talking names and for the decider it is not clear which specific permissions are behind a role. The tool offers the possibility to provide a description for each role, which is available by pop-in. Looking up which role has which permissions and which is meant for which is completely omitted. Flags & Criticality The tool offers in its options the possibility to set flags for critical roles and highlight them in particular. At a glance, the decision-makers see that one of their employees has a critical role and can examine it carefully. Since roles are classified differently in each company, you are completely free to decide which roles you want to consider critical. Roll Whitelist Do you want to exclude certain roles from the audit? Or do you want to test only critical roles? The tool offers you a whitelist function for this. This whitelist allows you to include roles that you do not want to check in the recertification process. So you completely decide which roles the tool should take into account. Logging of the results The results of the tests are logged via the application log and can be viewed both by SAP standard means and directly by the tool. It is also possible to export the audit logs or add optional comments to the logs later.
Structure of SAP Basis
SAP Basis ensures smooth operation of the SAP Basis system. The SAP Basis system is a kind of operating system of the R/3 system or SAP ERP. It includes three layers: database, application and presentation. In addition, Basis includes many SAP middleware programs and administration tools. With Basis SAP applications can be used compatible and independent of operating system and database and can be enriched with the necessary data.
Job scheduling: your system needs to run various automatic background jobs that consume resources. Your administrator must carefully schedule these tasks when user demand is low so they don't impact performance.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.
