How UserXpress Handles Security

Submitted by 1905 Team on Mon, 27/04/2020 - 07:58

Of course security is of paramount importance to all companies – and understandably so. In this blog we will talk about security within UserXpress, how UserXpress communicates with your SAP systems, how it accesses the data, manages change history and more.

Key Points

How Does UserXpress Communicate with SAP?

We use an SAP certified interface to communicate with all SAP Systems and Clients. The library we use was developed by a German company called Theobald Software. The software is certified for all communications by SAP itself. A copy of the certificate is located here.

We use this company specifically because of the SAP Certification, because then we’re assured that all communication to an SAP System is precisely as SAP intended.

What about accessing SAP Data?

UserXpress will retrieve all available systems from the saplogon.ini file and present them to you. Since you use your own user ID to log on to the SAP system, your restrictions are based on what roles or profiles you have been assigned.

UserXpress Passphrase

So how do you access UserXpress? Via a passphrase, that must be a minimum of 12 characters. Moreinformation on the passphrase:

Where is Change history stored?

Changes to your data are made directly within SAP and stored within SU01. Did you know you can accessSU01 directly from UserXpress? Simply double click on any user and it will open up SU01 for that particular user.

We hope that answers any questions you may have about security and UserXpress. If you have any questions, please let us know. We are always happy to talk to the SAP community.

Thank you,
