In SAP Netweaver system, user can specify which all functionalities can be switched on. These functionalities are referred to as Business Functions and can be easily accessed via transaction SFW5, where these can be switched on or off.

Prior to activating a Business Function, it is critical to verify the points listed below:

This icon means it can be switched on or offLight icon refers that it can only be switched on.

This is quite an easy way of identifying the impact of any activation. However, it must also be kept in mind that a large majority of business functions are not reversible.

Solution

For activating a new Business Function, user can perform the following steps below:

1) Create a backup of your system

2) Log on to the development system with your SAP_ALL authorization

3) Disabling all the batch jobs

4) Closing the system for all other users

After performing these preventive actions user can begin the activation process inSFW5transaction.

This step is responsible for activating the business functions, at this point it is critical to ensure that all business functions flagged are correct because their deactivation will not be possible later. Once the user hits the "Activate Changes" button in application toolbar, the system will initiate a background job responsible for activating all the important objects involved within the selected switches. This job is known as SFW_ACTIVATE_SF0X.

If user only saves this change, the system will not start the activation job and business function will remain off.

Once job gets over, user can verify the transaction SFW5 again. It will display all activated objects with light bulb turned on.
