What is an SAP transport request? How to import/export TR?
Because hybrid landscapes are seen as the operating model of the future, it is necessary to develop monitoring strategies for this. What is important is an end-to-end view based on the process and not just an individual view of the systems, services or components involved. This supports the requirement of a company-wide interface function of the SAP basis.
When I began my career administering SAP ERP on Oracle in the early 1990s, running a database required far more knowledge. An Oracle administration expert with a decade of experience understood perhaps only about 5% of what the database required.
I recommend that you schedule the background job PFCG_TIME_DEPENDENCY with the report RHAUTUPD_NEW. Scheduling the RHAUTUPD_NEW report with two variants has proven to be a best practice: Once a day before users log on for the first time (e.g. midnight or very early in the morning). This way the users are synchronized once a day. Once a month (or even once a week) with the option "Perform cleanup", so that obsolete profiles and user mappings are regularly cleaned up. Also handy: If the naming conventions of your roles allow it, you can also align the report according to different time zones. For example, I have a customer who runs the user synchronization for his users in the USA and Asia at different times, so that the daily business of the respective users is not disturbed.
