Client Concept in SAP

A Client is the top-most organizational structure, which has its own set of master records. A Client is denoted by a 3-character alphanumeric code in SAP, and is a mandatory element. The settings made at the Client level, data maintained, etc., are available across all the Company Codes. A Client should have at least one Company Code defined.

SAP comes delivered with Clients 001 and 002, which contain all the default settings. Usually, copying from the default Clients creates additional and new Clients.

Typically, in SAP, you will have different ‘types’ of Clients; namely:
1. Development Client
2. Test Client
3. Production Client

SAP Transactions: Definition

 A transaction in SAP is like a program in normal computer languages, and is identified by a four-character transaction code. A transaction can be initiated directly from the command field on the presentation interface or from the corresponding menu option. There are two kinds of transactions: report and dialog transactions.

  • Report transactionsare SAP programs that collect selection parameters from the selection
    screen followed by the output called the lists.
  • Dialog programs consist of more than one interactive screen called a dynpro. These transactions sometimes also need preselected information for triggering them, not unlike the explicit selection screens in report programs; these are called parameter transactions.

Changes, Impacts and Challenges from SAP R/3 to ECC&SOA

In his first part of blog series Ranjan Baghel discusses changes between SAP’s R/3 system and their most recent release, ECC. In the second part his states differences between R/3 system and ECC and in the last part of series he focuses on why there has been a lack of understanding about the capabilities of ECC and how this has had a direct impact on the true realization of SOA. He points out that this lack of awareness is particularly important considering how SOA is actually an integral part of ECC and Business Suite 7 architecture.

How to Disable Multiple Logins

To disable multiple user logins within the same client implement this parameter in the instance profile:
login/disable_multi_gui_login = 1

If you do not use this parameter in your system, users have the ability to ignore the warning window at the time they try to login to the same client. Activating this parameter in your system will make you look good if you get audited.
In case you’re wondering how to allow multiple logins for certain key users you can implement parameter login/multi_login_users. You can list the user IDs that should be ignored if the parameter above is active in your system.
