Access to archived SAP objects for users of other systems enables authorized users to search through several, preset metadata and display results according to the defined dependency of SAP documents, in accordance with the security scheme.
A solution for direct access to archived objects for non-SAP users and their display in web browsers facilitates the searching by several predefined metadata (combined by AND/OR logical operators into one search criterion) and the viewing of results in a hierarchical form based on the defined document dependency (e.g. a connection between an outgoing invoice and a delivery note).
The system can keep a record of the audit trail, which reveals who had access to which documents and when. Optionally, it is possible to enable an audit trail for views of documents (by search term). Logging into the system can be based on the username and password and/or PKI infrastructure (certificates).
