Introduction

The SAP administrator has a lot of work to memorize all of the transactions that could lead him to find the root of an issue more rapidly. This is the reason why this topic was created: for the SAP administrator to know the transactions available, and what role do they play.

Transactions

This section is divided into three categories.

  1. Programming and Debugging;
  2. System Administration;
  3. User Specific;
  4. Background processing;
  5. Documentation.
