Authorizations in SAP HANA

by Mark Walker | July 2013 | Enterprise Articles SAP

In this article by Mark Walker, author of Software Development on the SAP HANA Platform, we will examined the fact that some of your users might not be allowed to have access to all the data in the system, or might have specific rights, maybe to create data but not to see the data that is currently in the system. We'll see concrete example of access restrictions on both objects and their content in this article.

SAP HANA provides several different layers of security from which you can benefit, and in this article we'll be looking at each of them. We'll examine how we can create each type of object, how they interact with each other, and how we can use them.

The authorization concept in SAP HANA is comprised of different notions:

  • Roles

  • SQL privileges

  • Analytic privileges

  • System privileges

  • Package privileges

  • Users

     

We will take a look at each of these concepts in turn.

Working with User Defined Values in SAP Business One

by Gordon Du | June 2011 | Enterprise Articles SAP

The User-Defined Values function enables SAP Business One users to enter values, originated by a predefined search process, for any field in the system (including user-defined fields). This function enables the user to enter data more efficiently and – perhaps most importantly – more accurately. In fact, the concept is sort of a "Workflow Light" implementation. It can both save user time and reduce data double entries.

In this article by Gordon Du, author of Mastering SQL Queries for SAP Business One, we will see how to work with User-Defined Values.
